Pimple and Acne treatment
Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria. Each pore of your skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair, out of the pore, and onto your skin.
Foods That Cause Acne:
- Sugar. Sugars, which we consume as refined white sugar in our homes and in other forms like sodas, tetra pack juices, honey, etc.
- Dairy Products
- Fast Food
- Greasy Food
- Whey Protein Powder
- Refined Grains
- Foods Rich In Omega-6 Fats
Some adults carry scars from acne. Some relatively aggressive surgical procedures can improve scars. Procedures include dermabrasion, several types of lasers, and chemical peeling. These procedures remove the scarred surface and expose unblemished skin layers. Dermatologists may also use the following:
- microneedling to stimulate collagen and lessen the appearance of scars
- subcision where a needle is used under the scars to break them up
- fillers, which are injections under the scars to lift them up to the surrounding skin surface
- Dermatologists may use more superficial peels such as glycolic or salicylic acid help to loosen whiteheads and blackheads and decrease pimples.
- Microdermabrasion has little effect on acne itself, but is effective in combination with lasers. Before considering any treatment it is important to discuss the procedures, necessary precautions, and likely results with a doctor.
- Lasers and other light therapies may seem like the perfect acne treatment. Just beam a light to make the acne disappear.
- Using them is actually a bit more involved and the results less predictable, even in the skilled hands of a dermatologist. Still, these treatments can be an effective part of an acne treatment plan.
