Acne is one of the most common, yet hardest skin problems to clear and it is not just a problem found in puberty. It is a disease that can span right the way through to adult life and for some it can be persistent.
Scarring from acne is a common occurrence following acne episodes. Fractional treatments have always been the most effective to minimize scarring of any forms. With the new generation Discovery Pico laser, treatments are now also accessible to Asian skin due to the very low percentage of PIH ( Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) and now downtime is greatly reduced for everyone in comparison to standard fractional laser machines.
In normal circumstances, our skin’s sebaceous or oil glands will normally make oil that lubricates the surface of the skin. Acne is a result of the overproduction of oil by these sebaceous glands, inflammation and redness resulting as the pores of the skin become blocked, not only being filled with sebum, but also dead skin cells. Despite the blockage, oil continues to be produced, resulting in a swelling behind the blockage causing white heads or blackheads if the oil is exposed to air but still stuck into the pore. A perfect environment for bacteria develops leading to the larger red spots of acne.
Hormonal changes are the predominant cause of acne and should be addressed particularly in adult females. Diet and stress can also add to the burden of the skin and attempts to cover the skin with makeup can often make the condition worse.
