Laser Acne Removal

Acne Facts: Acne Is The Most Common Skin Disorder. It Affects Nearly 100% Of All Teenagers Of Which, More Than 40% Will Require The Help Of A Physician To Manage It. It Typically Occurs During Our Early Teens. However, Adults Can Develop Acne As Well. Acne Can Be Very Short-lived, Lasting One To Two Years Or, In Some Cases, It Can Last Up To 20 Years. Acne Is Not Caused By Certain Foods (e.g. Chocolate), Poor Hygiene Or Stress. There Are Several Factors Involved, Each Of Which Must Be Addressed During Treatment. There Are Several Factors That Result In The Development Of Acne. However, To Fully Understand How It Is Managed, It Is Important To Understand The Anatomy Of The Hair Follicle. All Of The Hair On Our Body Grows From A Hair Follicle And Each Hair Follicle Has One Or More Sebaceous Glands (oil Glands) Which Are Responsible For Naturally Moisturizing The Hair And Skin. The Inner Lining Of The Hair Follicle Produces A Waxy Protein Called Keratin.

The Amount Of Keratin Produced Is Directly Proportionate To The Amount Of Oil Being Secreted. On The Surface Of The Skin There Is A Bacteria Known As P. Acnes. This Bacterium Typically Isn't Harmful, But It Feeds On And Multiplies In The Oil Secreted From The Oil Glands. This Skin Condition Is Usually Triggered By Hormones. During Our Teenage Years, Males And Females Begin To Produce More Androgen Hormones. These Hormones Cause The Oil Glands To Secrete More Oil And Subsequently More Keratin. Too Much Keratin Can Block The Opening Of The Hair Follicle, Causing Oil To Build Up, The Hair Follicle To Swell, And The Acne Lesion To Become More Inflamed.

Social Impact

If You Want To Take Control Of Your Acne Issues, The Best Place To Start Is With Your Diet And Exercise Routines. Eating Foods Rich In Antioxidants Like Fruits And Vegetables Helps Circulate Blood And Oxygen To Your Skin. When That Happens, The Skin Cells Get Replenished And Toxins Are Pulled Away From The Cells. Drinking Lots Of Water, Typically Defined As Eight Glasses A Day, And Not Drinking Caffeinated Or Sugary Drinks, Will Assist In Your Body's Natural Expulsion Process As Well.

Personal Elements

Something Else You Can Do Yourself If You Have Sensitive Skin Is To Make Your Own Acne Skin Care Mask. Using Baking Soda And Water, Or Oatmeal And Water, Create A Pasty Mask That Will Not Only Remove Oils And Dead Skin Cells From The Surface Of Your Skin, But It Will Help Firm Your Skin As Well. Adding A Small Amount Of Lemon Juice To Any Mixture Helps Aid In The Acne Healing Process As Well. Lemon Is A Natural Acid, So It Kills Germs And Bacteria Responsible For Clogging Your Pores And Causing Acne.

Peroxide And Acid

Benzoyl Peroxide And Salicylic Acid Are Both Used In Many Acne Treatment Products On The Market Because Of Their Ability To Dry Out The Skin And Kill Bacteria. Benzoyl Peroxide Gets Rid Of Excess Oil In And On The Surface Of Your Skin That Clogs Pores. It Is Extremely Effective, But Can Be Harsh On Sensitive Skin. You Can Find A Product That Has Fairly Small Amounts Of Benzoyl Peroxide, Or Simply Use A Small Amount Of The Product To Ensure You Do Not Cause Irritation To Your Skin. Make Sure Before Using It On Your Face That You Test It On Your Arm So You Can Clearly See And Feel If A Bad Reaction Takes Place.

Peroxide And Acid

Salicylic Acid Prevents Your Pores From Over-shedding, Which Allows The Pores To Stay Small And Clear Instead Of Wide And Clogged. That Helps Prevent Whiteheads And Blackheads From Forming That Cause Acne And Skin Irritation. Salicylic Acid Also Exfoliates, So It Sloughs Off Dead Skin To Reveal Smooth, Fresh Skin Underneath. Since Salicylic Is Less Harsh And Has Less Of A Skin Drying Effect Than Benzoyl Peroxide, You May Want To Stick With Acne Products That Only Contain Salicylic Acid And Not Benzoyl.

Acne

Avoid Treatments With Harsh Chemicals And Products That Have Hypoallergenic Properties. They Will Only Irritate Your Sensitive Skin Even More.

Wash From Under The Jaw Right Up To The Hairline. An Essential To Good Acne Skin Care Is Thoroughly Rinsing The Skin After Washing.

Skin & Cosmetic Products

Be Aware That Some Acne Skin Care Treatments Make The Skin More Prone To Sunburn. Avoid Oily Hair Products As They Can In Time Affect The Area Below The Hairline And The Forehead. Women Should Choose Oil-free Cosmetic Products. Avoid Applying Make-up Over Blemishes. Men Should Shave Lightly To Avoid Knicking Spots And Blemishes. Also Soak The Beard Thoroughly With Soap And Water Before Applying Shaving Gel Or Cream. This Makes Light Shaving Easier And Contributes To Good Acne Skin Care.

Skin & Cosmetic Products

Choose Light, Loose Fitting Clothing If You Have Acne On The Body And Change Underwear Very Regularly. Avoid As Much As Possible Squeezing The Pimples. This Can Irritate Further Or Even Cause Skin Scarring. If You Are Really Desperate, Squeeze Gently And Immediately Apply Disinfectant Afterwards. Acne Can Be Made Worse Through Stress. A Woman's Hormonal Changes In The Lead Up To A Period Can Make Acne Worse. Working In A Hot Environment Can Cause A Person To Perspire More And Thereby Aggravate An Acne Condition.
