Acne



Acne presents itself in various ways as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and/or cystic acne. The complications of acne include pigmentation, redness, textural changes, scar, and contour changes.

Four factors create acne: sebum production, dead skin cells, clogged pores, and bacteria. It can happen anywhere from your face, neck, back to your chest. Excess amount of sebum, combined with dead skin buildup, can often clog pores. The clogged pore created serves as an environment where the bacteria loves. Then when bacteria infects that environment, inflammation occurs.
