Causes of Acne
Acne is the most common skin condition affecting teens and adults in the U.S. It is caused by blocked pores. In normal skin, sebum keeps skin healthy, moist and protected. The oil glands release sebum, which then moves along the hair follicles inside pores. As it moves along the follicles, the sebum collects old skin cells and other debris and carries them away. This natural process keeps the pores clean. When this process is interrupted, sebum and dead skin cells become trapped inside and clog the pores, which results in the formation of acne on the skin.
There are many different types of acne treatments available to help you get control of your acne. Some treatments clear up existing acne, while others prevent future breakouts by either reducing sebum production or killing bacteria. There are also acne treatments that can both clear up existing lesions and prevent future breakouts. Dermatology Specialists, Inc. offer a full range of acne treatments at their Oceanside office and several other locations. Some of the treatments they offer include oral medications, topical products and laser therapy. These treatments can be used in combination with chemical peels.
