One of the most common (and often one of the most distressing) skin conditions is acne. Most may accept acne as just a natural part of the awkwardness of teen years. They ride it out with topical creams and face washing, hoping it will go away eventually, and often it does. But if your child suffers from severe/frequent breakouts, or you are an adult with acne, you need not suffer. If you or someone you love has a problem with oily skin, you can come to us for solutions.
What Is Acne?
When we discuss acne, we are usually talking about pimples, whiteheads or blackheads; raised bumps with pink, black or white tips that usually appear mostly on the face. They occur as a result of sebum, a necessary skin oil, dead skin cells and dirt collecting in the pores above your hair follicles and clogging those pores. While they can appear anywhere you have hair follicles, it is generally facial outbreaks that are the most distressing. While they usually disappear over time, they tend to return. They can also lead to scarring, which is usually permanent without treatment.
Scars can occur during the acne healing process. The body rushes collagen to the affected area to try to repair the damage, but can overcompensate, thickening the surrounding area and leading to more or less permanent marks that are indented (called “boxcar” or “icepick” scars) or raised and bumpy. Having these scars on your face disrupts the tone and texture of your skin, so many people seek medical intervention to improve the look of these scars.
