Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the hair follicles of the skin are obstructed by sebum and dead cells, becoming colonized by bacterias that generate inflammation. Acne most commonly appears on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. There are different types of acne. The most common one is the type that develops during adolescence. Puberty causes hormone levels to raise, especially testosterone. These hormones stimulate the skin glands, which begin to produce more oil (sebum). The hair follicles are linked to sebaceous glands, which secrete an oily substance, known as sebum, to lubricate your hair and skin. When the body produces an excessive amount of sebum and dead skin cells, the two can accumulate in the hair follicles, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive.
The acne treatments focus on reducing oil production on the skin, speeding up cell renewal, fighting bacterial infection and reducing inflammation. In some cases, the skin may get worse before it improves.
There are many ways to treat acne, it is necessary a consultation to decide which treatment is the best for each case.
