For acne treatment to be effective, the subject shall go for early appointment with a certified dermatologist because it can ward off serious acne and acne scar that often follows suit.

Causes of acne

Patients should understand that the causes of acne and acne scar pertain to the hormonal and physical changes young men and women experience while growing from childhood to puberty. Scientific studies suggest that the hormones responsible for physical growth also trigger the oil glands of the skin to generate more oil, especially androgens. Acne victims’ skin cells shed and gum together even more, mixing with the increased amount of oil on the skin and corking the gap of the follicle. The follicles then swell up with the oil, triggering acne followed by acne scar.

Acne is also prompted by a skin bacterium called P. acne. In some people, this bacteria starts to grow swiftly in the already swollen hair follicle, producing substances that can lead to burning sensation on the skin. At times, the follicle walls explode, spreading inflammation to the adjacent skin. This is how acne turns from blackheads to pimples and nodules.
