Here is about getting rid of acne

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just published this post about Get Rid Of Acne, but wanted to share a short and sweet version here.

Acne affects over 80% of teenagers and persists beyond the age of 25 years in 3% of men and 12% of women.

What Causes Acne?

The area from the sebaceous glands to the pores is called the funnel of the hair follicle. The cells in the funnel of the hair follicle will also undergo a process of transforming from basal cells to keratinocytes and then gradually falling off.

However, due to some reasons, the keratinization process of this part of the cells is abnormal, and the keratinocytes stick together and cannot fall off normally. The keratinocytes accumulate more and more at the opening of the hair follicle, they will eventually block the pores.

Normally, the oil secreted by the sebaceous glands runs out along the hair follicles. But when hyperkeratosis at the funnel of the hair follicle. The pores are clogged so that the oil cannot flow out and form whiteheads. A mixture of oil, dead cells and bacteria causes an inflammatory reaction, forming acne.

 

How to get rid of acne?
Treatment of level I acne
The type of acne on the face of level I acne is a whitehead.

Usually use topical retinoids or fruit acid skin care products. Such as adapalene or Neostrata Bionic Face Serum.

You can also go to the hospital to use glycolic acid peeling to treat whitehead-based acne, usually once every 2 to 4 weeks, 4 times as a course of treatment.

Treatment of level II acne
The face with level II acne has a large number of whiteheads and papules, and a small number of pustules.

There is a slight inflammation of the skin. You need to choose topical anti-inflammatory drugs or topical antibacterial drugs to kill P.acne and reduce inflammation.

For example, adapalene is applied to the white head, and topical antibiotics or benzoyl peroxide are applied to the papules or pustules.

Treatment of level III acne
If there are only mild acne and a small amount of moderate acne on the face, no oral medication is needed, only topical treatment is required. When the acne on your face is more serious, the doctor will usually prescribe a combination of oral prescription drugs and topical drugs.

Most of the faces with level III acne are papules and pustules, as well as a few nodules. At this time, you should not learn acne treatment from the Internet, you should go to the hospital for help from a dermatologist.

Treatment of level III acne can choose topical antibiotics or topical benzoyl peroxide + oral antibiotics, women can also take oral anti-androgen.

Treatment of level IV acne
At this time, the acne on your face is already very serious, and you need at least half a year of treatment under the guidance of a doctor to eliminate acne.

The treatment of level IV acne can choose topical antibiotics or topical benzoyl peroxide + oral antibiotics + oral isotretinoin, women can also take oral anti-androgen. The doctor may also recommend photodynamic therapy or injection therapy.

Hi Lawliet,

Thank you for this informative article on acne formation. The different levels of acne was a new piece of information for me and recognized that I'm with a level II acne. Since my childhood itself, I'm having a T-zone combination skin type and recently I noticed pustule formation and inflammation on my face. As per the recommendation of my skin specialist, currently I'm using Cetaphil face moisturizer for acne as a remedial measure. This Cetaphil face moisturizer for acne is now working well on my skin. It helped to reduce shine, oil production and pustule formation is also now in control so I just wanted to mention Cetaphil face moisturizer for acne here. 

Thank you once more and expecting similar information- rich articles in future.

Thanks.

The sebaceous glands in the T zone are more developed, and this area produces more oil.


If there are only a few pustules, use topical antibiotics.


Cetaphil PRO moisturizing contains Ceramide NP, the effect of this lotion is repairing and moisturizing.


You can get rid of acne due to your skin's immune function. Cetaphil's role is to moisturize the skin and when the acne disappears, repair the damaged barrier and restore healthy skin.

You have been suffering from acne for 20 years, it may be caused by your inheritance.


Have you seen a dermatologist, have you used the right medicine and the right skin care regimen?


If not, treat your skin right now.
