Acne can be defined as a skin condition which affects the oil glands responsible for producing sebum. The follicle canal present between the gland and the pores carries thin hair and dead skin.

Your face is an expression of yourself and a source of confidence. Acne can deter that confidence and become an annoyance if left untreated. In USA alone, 85% of the population suffers from mild to severe cases of acne. 

From hormonal changes and genetic proclivity to overly dry skin, any combination of factors could be contributing to your acne. Luckily, there is plenty you can do to keep your face clear of blemishes.

When this follicle canal is blocked with dirt or excess oil, it forms a pimple.

Acne isn’t chronic, and it isn’t life-threatening, but can result in low-self esteem, stress, and depression in many teenagers and adults. It is most common in people ages 11 to 30.

Although the actual cause of acne is still unknown, there are several different factors that contribute to it. Medical researchers believe that a person may develop acne when he/she experiences a high level of androgen (a type of hormone) in the body.

The increased levels enlarge the oil glands, allowing for more oil to be produced. This, as a result, allows excess sebum breakdown, making it a breeding ground for bacteria to grow.

Other causes such as greasy makeup, certain medication side effects, excess consumption of oily food, pregnancy, genetics, hormonal imbalance or the use or stop of birth control pills may also trigger a breakout.

Whichever be the cause, it is treatable once you understand what is causing it.

  • Whiteheads 
  • Blackheads 
  • Pustules
  • Papules
  • Cysts
  • Nodules

There are several different ways to prevent acne. Caring for one’s skin, keeping it exfoliated and scrubbed, and regular miniaturization (techniques to minimize large pores) to avoid dryness are a few.

For many, it is following the right diet, balancing your hormones, decreasing stress, quit smoking, and increasing water intake.

Health One Family Medicine providers use the latest evidence-based medicine to to treat acne for all ages.
