Acne is the commonest skin condition where the skin pores get clogged or the hair follicles get clogged with excess sebum, dead skin cells, and other impurities. Sometimes, acne is caused by a build-up of acne-causing bacteria within the pores. Such acne is an inflammatory type of acne.

The obstruction of the skin pores results in different types of acne: Inflammatory acne and Non-inflammatory acne. The non-inflammatory types include open comedones (blackheads) and closed comedones (whiteheads) while the inflammatory kinds are papules, pustules/pimples, nodules, and cysts. Acne can vary in its severity. Mild acne means blackheads and whiteheads and a few occasional pimples; moderate acne is the inflammatory papules or pustules, and severe acne forms are the nodules and cysts.

What are the Symptoms of Acne?

  • Small, discoloured bumps, often red or purple, or darker than usual skin tone (Papules)
  • Pus-filled bumps appearing red and having white in their centre (Pustules)
  • Pores plugged with a black top (Blackheads)
  • Pores plugged with a white top (Whiteheads)
  • Large, painful lumps under the skin (Nodules)
  • Deep, painful, pus-filled lumps under the skin (Cysts).

Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics Offers Best Acne Treatment in Chandigarh

  1. Lasers- Lasers can help deliver intense light to the clogged pores to heat kill or inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria, shrink the sebaceous glands to produce less sebum, and even heat the scarred collagen under the skin to encourage new collagen production and skin renewal.
  2. Chemical peels- This treatment uses certain acids like salicylic acid and others to exfoliate the skin. Once the old, affected top layer of the skin is removed, new skin is revealed which is clear of acne.
  3. Comedones extraction- This treatment is exclusively beneficial for the treatment of blackheads and whiteheads. The procedure involves the use of a special tool called a comedones extractor to physically by force take out the acne blockages from the skin.
  4. Antibiotics- They can help treat acne by killing or inhibiting the growth of bacteria causing it, preventing the entry of bacteria within the body, and reducing inflammation. Antibiotics can either be used orally or topically and in some cases, both types can be used. For acne treatment with antibiotics, the prescribed antibiotics course must be completed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the types of acne?

Acne can be of several types, including:

  • Hormonal acne- It is a form of acne breakout occurring because of hormonal fluctuations among adults. The hormonal changes cause excessive sebum production which clogs the pores and results in hormonal acne. 
  • Nodular acne- It is a severe acne form that leads to pimples breakout on the skin surface and tender, nodular lumps beneath the skin.  
  • Cystic acne- It is an inflammatory kind of acne-causing deep-seated, pus-filled pimples and nodules. Upon healing it can leave behind a scar.
  • Fungal acne (Pityrosporum folliculitis)- It causes small clusters of itchy, red bumps on the skin. This develops when the hair follicles get infected with Malassezia yeast.

Why is it bad to pick, rub, scratch, or pop acne breakouts?

If you are having inflammatory acne like pustules or cysts, their bacteria-loaded fluids can worsen the skin condition by adding to the bacteria already present in the infected pores. It can even cause more acne breakouts as the bacteria enters into nearby areas of healthy, acne-free skin.

Where does acne occur on the face and what does it mean?

Here are the common acne zones and what they might mean:

  • Around the hairline- There could be something wrong with the haircare routine.
  • On the chin and jawline- These areas are oily usually because of over-stimulation of sebaceous glands caused by hormonal fluctuations.
  • On the cheeks- The pillowcase or mobile phone may harbour acne spot-causing bacteria. So, it’s important to ensure that they are kept clean regularly.
  • On the forehead and nose- Usually, that’s because of excess oil. So, regularly use gentle cleansers to help prevent oil build-up.
  • Other than the face, the acne can even pop on other body sites too including the chest, upper back, and shoulders- all the areas where oil glands exist the most or they are producing an excess of sebum. 

Who does acne affect the most?

Acne can strike everyone’s skin at any point in their lives. Most commonly teenagers and young adults experiencing hormonal changes are affected, but acne can even develop in later adulthood. Women and individuals assigned female at birth most commonly are affected by adult acne. The risk of developing acne is the most in people who have a genetic disposition to acne.

How common is acne?

If you experience acne, don’t think you are the only sufferer of this condition. Acne is the most common skin concern worldwide. Roughly, 80% of humans aged 11-30 years do have at least a mild form of acne.

How can I prevent my acne flare-ups?

Acne that develops as a result of hormonal changes can’t be prevented. However, you can lessen your risk of developing acne by:

  • Using a grease-free moisturiser.
  • Daily wash your face with lukewarm water and gentle cleanser.
  • Applying only non-comedogenic products on the skin and removing make-up before going to bed at night.
  • Keeping oily, dirty hands away from the face.

When should I visit my healthcare provider for acne?

Visit your healthcare provider just after noticing pimples so that you can receive appropriate treatment for your acne before your acne leaves behind scars. If you are on any acne treatment that’s failing to clear your acne or is worsening your skin condition by causing itchiness or discoloration of the skin, visit a skincare practitioner.

What acne treatment is suitable for me?
