Inflammatory Acne is the most common form of dermatosis to affect mankind. Over 90% of adolescents will suffer from it and it affects all ethnic groups.
It is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit. The site of the acne depends on the activity of the sebaceous gland on different areas of the body but is most commonly found on the face followed by the shoulders, back, chest and other areas. The lesions can be non-inflammatory, seen as blackheads and whiteheads, and inflammatory, producing papules, pustules and cysts.
The sebaceous gland increases sebum excretion, which hardens and occludes (blocks) the follicle. We then see the proliferation of propionibacterium acnes and resulting inflammation.
Some of the myths surrounding the cause of this condition include that it affects only teenagers, you’ll grow out of it, that it’s due to diet or poor cleanliness. All of them not true!
30% of teenage sufferers will continue into adult life with the condition and it can result in scarring, both of the skin and the psyche.
It is commonly believed that, in order to get the better of spots and acne breakouts, it is necessary to use strong, alcohol-laden products to dry the skin out. Unfortunately, these same products can often make the situation progressively worse by stripping the skin of its natural oils and encouraging the sebum to work even harder to replace it. This increased production of sebum provides the perfect environment for further bacterial growth of Propionibacterium acnes.
Here at Shadi Danin Medi-Spa we consider in an individual tactic for each patient that methods us for treatment. We begin with a sounding, during which we look at the current skin management system, including all the products the persistent may be using.
