Acne vulgaris generally recognized as acne is a severe & long-haul skin condition that results when hair follicles get obstructed with the dead skin cells and oil secreted from the skin. The condition is usually characterized by blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring. It primarily affects areas of the skin which have a relatively high number of oil glands, like the face, upper part of the chest, and back. The resulting appearance can lead to anxiety, reduced self-esteem and, in extreme cases, depression or suicidal thoughts. Acne is a chronic and inflammatory skin infirmity that causes flaws and pimples, particularly on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms.
Many treatment choices for acne are available, like lifestyle modifications, medicines, and restorative procedures. Reducing the intake of carbohydrates such as sugar might help.Treatments employed directly to the injured area of the skin, such as azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid, are commonly put to use. In combination with topical applications and oral medications (wherever required) procedures for treating acne not only help the acne to subside quicker but also block the formation of any scars.
a. Acne Peels
Apart from the popular glycolic peels, we have azelaic and salicylic peel combinations as well as yellow peels for faster results for the reduction of acne, pigmentation, and scars.
b. Blue Light
One of the most common, effective and safest methods of treating inflammatory acne is using the blue light. It’s a LED light which can also be used to treat even the most sensitive skin and requires only 20 minutes to do a full facial treatment. It is one of the reliable treatment modalities of acne in pregnancy.
