Acne (Pimples) and Acne Scar Treatment

Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the hair follicles in which hair follicles get clogged with dead skin and oil from skin called sebum. Acne can present itself with blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, greasy skin and possible scarring.
It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands called as sebaceous glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back
It is thought to be the primary cause of acne in 80% of cases. During puberty, in both , acne is often brought on by an increase in hormones in both males and females such as testosterone. Too much growth of the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, which is normally present on the skin is often involved. The above mentioned causes is the primary reason for skin treatment for acne.

Causes of Acne (pimples)

Three factors contribute to the formation of acne:

Acne occur when the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin . Hair follicles are connected to sebaceous glands. These glands secrete an oily substance known as sebum to lubricate your hair and skin. Normally sebum travels up along the hair shafts and then out through the openings of the hair follicles onto the surface of your skin. When excessive amount of sebum is produced, sebum and dead skin can build up in the hair follicles and form together as a soft plug, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. This plug causes the follicle wall to bulge and produce a whitehead. Or, the plug may be open to the surface and may darken, causing a blackhead. Pimple treatment is necessary for the Pimples which are formed when hair follicle becomes inflamed. It is a raised red spots with a white center. Blockages and inflammation that develop deep inside hair follicles produce lumps beneath the surface of your skin called cysts. Other pores in your skin, which are the openings of the sweat glands onto your skin, aren’t normally involved in acne.
