What is Acne? And, how does it form?
Acne, also medically known as acne vulgaris, is a dermatological skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria in which become inflamed. As a result, producing pimple-like acne formation on the surface of the skin.
Acne can cause whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples and is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. There are many triggers that can be the cause of your acne breakouts such as hormonal changes, plugged pores and bacteria and it can even be due to genetics. This skin condition typically appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders because these areas of skin have the most oil in the sebaceous glands. If not treated properly by the guidance of a certified physician or dermatologist, a severe case of acne can lead to the development of skin scarring or acne scars. Papillon Bleu Medical Aesthetic Centre in Coquitlam offers various types of acne treatments specific to treating both acne and acne scars.
