Acne and Acne Scars

Acne is a disease. Hypersensitivity to the male hormones plays a key role in the onset of acne. The mechanism of acne is complicated enough.

We can only guess what the main factor in the appearance of acne is, but we never know why some people get acne and others don’t. To understand what happens and how we get pimples, we will talk about the causes of acne we know about

The following are some factors that predispose one to acne:

  1. A lot of dead cells on the top skin laye
  2. A high level of oil production by sebaceous glands
  3. Microcomedones—what you feel under the fingers
  4. The growth of bacteria inside of the clogged sebaceous gland

The first factor is an abnormal number of dead cells in the top skin layer. The dead cells clog the sebaceous glands, forming a plug. Closed sebaceous glands create a nourishing environment for bacterial growth.

The second factor is increased sebum production.

The third factor pertains to the inflammation of the follicles that produce microcomedones, commonly referred to as a blackhead (containing an opening to the skin surface)

Enlarged microcomedones that don’t open to the skin surface are called white- heads. It’s quite common for clients not to be able to see them but to be able to feel them when touching the skin with fingers. Stretching out the skin allows whiteheads to become visible. They are inflamed under the stream of hormonal disturbances and show up on the skin as pimples.

Acne scars appears as a result of deep inflammation
