Our skin consists of millions of tiny pores. These pores are connected to oil glands. Once these oil glands are blocked by dirt or other factors, the oily substance called sebum clogs our pores causing pimple breakout.
Other Possible Causes of Acne:
1) elevation of hormones usually occurring during puberty or menstrual cycles in women
2) Other hormonal disorders such as thyroid disorders, PCOD
3) Bad lifestyle – lack of exercise, reduction in water intake and increase in junk food intake.
5) Stomach problems – Acidity, constipation
Acne or pimples do more harm than we know.
First, it makes our skinless than perfect and then it created acne scars that leave an emotional imprint for a lifetime. Acne if picked often or left unattended leave behind acne scars. These arise due to inadequate healing in the inner layer of the skin which deforms collagen and leaves behind depressions in the skin. They remain for life unless treated using a scientific approach.
In most of the patients visiting our clinic for Acne Scar Treatment in Rajouri Garden, we prescribe only gels and creams to apply without any oral medicines & they usually respond. In some patients, oral medicines and Peels are added as and when required. Unlike most of the places, here you won’t be misguided to undergo laser treatments portraying them as the only treatment option to solve your problem
Special peels called Salicylic peels are done which are derived from winter tree bark extract. They have a dual-action to help unclog pores and reduce oiliness. Resulting in smooth and radiant healthy skin glow. Also, the skin is disinfected to prevent further acne formation.
Frequency: one session in 15-20 days and 6-8 sessions Or as required.
Time: 10-15 min
2) Derma-roller: It is a technology that involves multiple micro-needles. These needles penetrate the upper layer of the skin to a depth of up to 1.5mm. This process has two major benefits:
a) Stimulates collagen formation thus helping scar reduction.
b) Derma-roller needles also create micro-channels in the skin for topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of the skin.
Frequency: 4 sessions with 8-10 weeks intervals within 2 sessions as it takes so much time for the collage to remodel. Regular derma-roller sessions help to encourage ongoing collagen production and eventually a reduction of acne scars
