This is the problem that is affecting a lot of girls and boys nowadays specifically in the teenagers but the worst is that acne after healing leave behind prominent acne scars.
Nowadays various things contribute towards acne production most prominently lifestyle is triggering acne production,
It’s prominently seen that fizzy drinks sugar and junk food is consume in large quantities which is ultimately the biggest cause that’s why that topic gained a lot of interest because it is not only affecting the skin but also persons confidence and self esteem.
Acne in different forms:
Now it is seen that acne show up in different forms such as blackheads, whiteheads, red spots and pustules.
Sometimes glands activity is more and nail scratches cause infection and pustules are formed.
There are a lot of medications related to acne treatment. first of all we treat that phase of acne production in which pimple production is at peak after that give such medications that reduces their growth.
Main Factors that cause acne:
- Excess oil production
- Certain medications
- Family history.
- poor diet
Excess oil production:
Oils produced by the body help keep skin healthy, but Excess oil can lead to blemishes and pimples and acne. You may develop acne where your skin comes into contact with oily lotions and creams or with grease in a work area, such as a kitchen.
over usage of some medicines can also contribute to pimples. other factors are drugs and cigarettes which have harmful effects on our lungs and mental health that ultimately leads to pimple.
Acne has basically no connection with stress. But if we already have acne then it may become even worse due to stress.
Acne is caused by having dirty skin and poor hygiene. If we are not properly cleaning or scrub our skin then dust particles get attached to our skin. So we must have to do cleansing to avoid pimples. scrubbing the skin too hard or cleansing with harsh soaps can make pimple worse.
the use of food that has too much oil causes acne and pimples. Greasy or oily foods cause excess oil consumption. which is very common in our generation in the form of Junk foods which includes burgers, pizzas, etc.
cosmetics also lead to pimple. if our makeup is not oil-free there will be more chances of acne. in cosmetics. in-cosmetics usually, there is alcohol and some other harmful chemicals that lead to more chances of pimple.
usually acne starts during the ages of 13 TO 30 and tends to be worse in people who have oily skin. It occurs in both (boys or girls) especially at teenagers because students have to travel to colleges/universities and they are more attracted to dust than skin becomes oily and non-Hygiene. Teenage boys tend to have the most severe cases as compared to young boys because they spend more time on roads traveling on bikes.
Our family history plays important role in pimple. If both our parents had pimple then there are maximum chances that pimple can develop in us too.
Our diet can affect our skin seriously. Certain foods raise our blood sugar more quickly than others. When our blood sugar rises quickly, it causes the body to release a hormone called insulin. Increase in insulin in our blood can cause oil glands to produce more oil and risks of acne increases.
Afterwards acne scarring treatment is done in which most prominently PRP treatment is best.
There are some advanced treatments such as stem cell therapy. Sometimes skin become so bad with acne that we go for surgical treatments,
Best treatment is laser treatment through which we can also control bacteria that causes pimple through which not only acne scars are removed but also skin becomes smooth
Here One thing should be kept in mind that whenever we are talking about acne scarring treatment that doesn’t mean that it gives you the very clear and smooth skin
if you have acne so it is better to avoid pimples than to go for the treatment because it doesn’t gives you the healthy and the smooth skin as before acne.
