Tips And Advice
What are the main causes of acne?
There are three main causes of acne as observed by dermatologists:
- Hyperseborrhea or Excess Oil
- Hyperkeratinization or Excess Dead Skin Cells (clogging pores)
- Acne Bacteria
How do dermatologists treat acne?
Dermatologists use topical treatments to reduce excess oil on the surface of the skin and unclog pores by clearing away dead skin cells. They also use topical treatments to kill acne-causing triggers deep in the pores. In certain cases medications like oral antibiotics are prescribed to help with inflammation and redness associated with acne. They can even recommend medication to control the hormonal shifts that cause excessive oil production.
