Millions of Indians suffer from the various forms of acne, and thousands of rupees are spent each year in an attempt to reduce the number and severity of breakouts. Acne knows no boundaries and affects all ethnic groups, all ages, and both sexes.
Acne is merely an inflammatory condition of the skin primarily affecting the sebaceous glands. Individuals with acne basically have skin that is out of balance. The sebaceous glands become overactive due to various internal factors (your genetics, the amount of stress in your life, the presence of various hormones in your body) and external factors (pollutants in the environment, sun exposure). When this happens, the sebaceous glands overproduce oil, which in turn creates shiny skin that attracts dirt and provides an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria. The result is seen in the form of breakouts, the development of pimples and/or blackheads.
Dr. Baser will place you on a home skin care regimen that will help remove surface oils, reduce bacterial contamination of pores, and reduce pore size. This system also maintains a healthy hydration of the skin, and may even remove fine lines and discolorations. The most important factor is that this is a gradual process that takes weeks if not months to achieve the results you desire. With the proper guidance, awareness and maintenance of your skin are within your ability to control.
Dr Baser. will also evaluate your present makeup techniques and make recommendations regarding proper product selection and application. In some individuals, the products selected to help conceal outbreaks are actually contributing to the severity and frequency of breakouts. What can I do for acne scarring?
Acne scarring may result from picking at acne, which traumatizes and tears the skin, leaving injured tissue that heals with a scar. The best treatment is prevention, by controlling acne before it becomes a problem.
There are several treatments available to address the resulting scarring or discolorations from acne. These include hydroquinones, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, surgical excision, laser resurfacing and dermabrasion.
