The Truth About Acne

Acne treatment Sugar Land, TXAcne is one of the top reasons that people feel uncomfortable with their skin. With so many products available on the market, it seems that acne should be a manageable condition, but few of these products can help with chronic acne. Understanding the complex nature of acne helps people feel more at ease when they need to seek the guidance of a dermatologist.

How Acne Forms on Your Skin

Your skin is constantly shedding old cells and developing new ones. Normally when skin cells die, they are easily removed from the surface of the skin. Excess oils on the skin can make the cells more difficult to remove. Some skin cells do not detach completely. These dead skin cells can slip into the pores, along with the natural oils. This creates a sticky substance inside the pores that is very difficult to remove. Once the pore is clogged, a perfect environment is created for bacteria that causes inflammation and infection. These symptoms produce various growths under the skin, such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and cysts.

Acne Requires Multi-Faceted Treatments

The acne treatments that you can buy at the drug or department store only address one or two reasons that you develop acne. Cleansers may remove oils and dirt from the surface yet leave behind dead skin cells. Exfoliators may remove the cells yet leave the skin dry or excessively oily. The most effective acne treatments address every aspect of acne, including:

  • Removing dead cells and excess oil from the surface
  • Unclogging pores
  • Eliminating bacteria and infection

Everyone is Prone to Developing Acne

One of the most common myths about acne is that only people who do not have clean skin will develop the problem. In truth, anyone can develop acne at any age, from infancy through to the senior years. If you have acne, the condition should not make you feel as if you are not taking care of your skin. Your skin is simply out of balance, and we can help.
