Why Professional Acne Treatment?

Before you discuss your acne treatment options, it’s important to understand what acne is. Acne is a chronic skin condition that occurs when the oil-containing sebaceous glands in the skin produce excess sebum (oil). Acne also occurs if these glands get clogged because of a buildup of dead skin cells and oil.

Causes of acne include hormonal changes (such as in adolescence), exposure to oil through greasy foods, and environmental toxins. Acne is most prevalent on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Acne comes in the following types:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Papules
  • Pustules
  • Nodules
  • Cysts

Acne is not exclusive to teens. Adults can get acne. Hormonal changes such as in pregnancy, medication, and diet can all potentially cause acne. However, acne does not have to rule your skin or your social life at any age. There are a variety of treatment options available.
