HomeAcne Scar Removal Treatment
Acne is a general term for eruptive skin disease. There are many types of acne including blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, and cystic. Acne is one the most common skin conditions. Acne generally occurs in teenagers and young adults, though it can affect anyone.
There are four key elements contribute to acne. They are: excess oil, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. During adolescence, the body begins to develop more sebum oil, which is produced to ensure our skin does not dry out. When sebum cannot flow freely to the skin, clogged pores result. Bacteria already found on the skin's surface, flourishes in the excess oil, and causes inflammation.
The degree of inflammation determines what type of acnes appears on the skin. A small amount of inflammation results in a blackhead or a whitehead. This means oil flow is blocked right at the surface of the skin, and is the least serious form of acne. If the pore is blocked deeper within the skin, a papule, or pimple, forms. If the pore becomes blocked deeper still, a pus-filled pimple, or pustule, forms. The most severe type of acne lesions are cysts, which occur when very deep blockage causes intense inflammation. Cysts, sometimes called nodules, are very painful bumps.
There are many treatment options available for reducing your acne. Because every case is different, and treatment effectiveness depends on your skin's reception, talk to Dr. Chalasani about finding the right treatment for you. Fortunately, when acne is properly treated, it can restore the confidence and positive self-image that often wane in people afflicted by acne.
Some common options include:
Cleansers containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or benzyl peroxide may help reduce acne. These agents dry out the skin, remove debris, and unclog clogged pores. Some cleansers containing benzyl peroxide will dry the skin, causing it to peel, and thereby helping prevent the growth of bacteria.
Topical Retinoids (Retin-A, Differin, Tazorac:
Topical retinoids work by loosening the plugs in clogged pores. They are also helpful in removing superficially clogged pores that cause blackheads and whiteheads.
Topical antibiotics are used to remove the skin bacteria that leads to papules and pustules. They may be used in combination with other agents.
Oral antibiotics may be prescribed for more severe acne lesions, and are mot effective in treating papules, pustules, and cysts. They work to decrease inflammation and bacteria around the acne lesion.
Isoretinoin is an oral medication that is only used for the most extreme cases of acne. Isoretinoin reduces the size of the skin's oil glands and the amount of oil the skin produces. The reduction in oil also leads to the reduction of bacteria living in the skin. Isoretinoin also slows down how fast the skin produces skin cells inside the pore, which helps pores from becoming clogged. There are many severe side effects of Isoretinoin, such as depression, birth defects if taken while pregnant, which is why it is important to consult with Dr. Chalasani, understand all the risks, and decide whether the Isoretinoin is right for you.
Birth Control Pills:
Birth control pills may help reduce acne in female patients by decreasing the effect of male hormones that increase or trigger acne development. Birth control pills also have serious side effects that must be considered when determining your acne treatment plan.
Laser and Light Therapy:
There are numerous light and laser based therapies that can reduce acne. If scarring from acne occurs, some options such as laser therapy may help reduce the appearance of scars. Talk to Dr. Chalasani if you are interested in this type of treatment.
Research has proven that heredity, hormones, menstruation and emotional stress can trigger acne, or make it worse. Although many of these factors cannot be avoided, it is recommended that patients not wash or scrub the skin excessively, which can irritate the skin and make acne worse. Diet does not generally contribute to acne, although if greasy foods are ingested often, oil from the food may transfer onto the skin, particularly around the mouth, and worsen acne. Likewise, if you have oily hair, shampooing often may help reduce the risk of oil from the hair transferring onto the skin
Acne Scar Removal Laser Treatment
Acne is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of scaly red skin, blackhead and whiteheads, pinheads, pimples, and scarring, resulting from hormonal activity which leads to its formation. Propoionibacteirum acnes (P. Acnes) is the anaerobic bacterium species that is widely concluded to cause acne. However, various other factors like genetic, dietary and psychological can also lead to acne.
Prolonged severe acne can cause lasting scars on the skin.
With an aim to provide the best acne treatment in Bangalore, Radiance Mediaspas use ThermaScan’s infrared energy at 1319 nm wavelength and BBL’s 420 nmdual-lamp technology wavelength energy, to target the sub-epidermal layers of the skin and allow its uniform, contained heating. The pulse length and swift dispersal of the infrared energy, helps to narrow the heating to only the epidermal-dermal boundary, thereby providing safety and efficiency.
With regular acne scar removal treatment and supervision, the process leads to collagen rejuvenation, active fibroblasts re-generation and control over excessively-active sebaceous glands, ensuing in diminishing acne and acne scarring, non-surgically.
However, skin resurfacing by means of Contour TRL, ProFractional, or ProFractional-XC at a 2490 nm wavelength, is highly suggested for superior enhancement. These resurfacing laser treatments produce fibroblasts resulting in augmentation of new collagen, plumper skin and rectified skin defects.
