Acne is a familiar skin condition for many people which causes the development of spots, pimples and oily skin. It can affect both males and females who can be either younger or more mature in their years. Blackheads, whiteheads and pus-filled pustules are the most common symptoms of acne, and in some cases the skin can also feel greasy, sore and / or warm to the touch. This condition is often more prevalent on the face, but it can also affect the neck, shoulders, back, chest and upper arms.
The overproduction of sebum, mixed with dead skin cells and other debris is the main reason for the development of acne, as they clog the follicles. This blockage can go on to become either a whitehead or a blackhead, or may become infected by the natural bacteria that lives on the skin – p.Acnes – creating a cyst, nodule, papule or pustule.
It is the squeezing or picking of these types of spots that can then lead to the condition becoming more severe as the bacteria and / or the infection can be spread. Hormones are responsible for the production of sebum. At times when hormones are changing and fluctuating, such as during puberty, pregnancy or the menopause, breakouts of acne can be more frequent or more severe.
A medical professional will always recommend that to lessen the harshness of acne, a person should resist the urge to squeeze any spots or pimples. Many people will use a cream or gel that can be purchased over-the-counter, to help calm the skin and prevent a breakout of acne. The Facebible will always endorse the application of suitable skin care, and many aesthetic clinics can often prescribe suitable products that are tailored to address the needs of acne-prone skin. The Facebible has Clearskin acne and acne scarring treatment within their menu of procedures, which can help to create a clearer complexion and prevent frequent breakouts. A consultation with one of the clinic’s highly trained and experienced professionals can suggest the right method of treatment for you and your particular concerns.
