Acne is a four-letter word for people who suffer with it. At Revive Cosmetic and Skin Clinic our dermal therapist works compassionately with a wide range of patients struggling with acne in its active state, and an equal number who want to reduce acne scarring. The visible facial scars can be just as traumatic as a face full of pimples.
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores – pores that want to sludge up with dead skin cells much like a clogged drain in your sink. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms congestion under the skin which are non-inflamed acne lesions (blackheads and/or whiteheads; and if bacteria are present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), you will get inflamed pimples, pustules and/or cysts.
Acne can be worsened by, though it is generally not caused by:
- Environmental pollution
- Rubbing the skin
But generally, the main causes of acne are genetics and hormones.
