Acne is a skin condition that can have scarring affects …both physically and emotionally. Having a skin condition that cannot be corrected through the normal skincare process, can be one of the most emotionally scarring things to have to endure – no matter your age or lifestyle.
Types and Treatments of Acne
There are various types of acne that individual’s experience. The most common of which being “acne vulgaris”. This is quite a normal skin condition in fact, which included blackheads, whiteheads and other pimples on the skin. Commonly breakouts will appear on the face, but are also known to appear on the chest, back and shoulders.
This common skin condition can normally be treated with regular skincare products, as well as maintaining a regular facial schedule to deep clean your skin of impurities; overall it’s fairly simple to manage.
More sever acne conditions involve an increased amount and combination of blackheads, whiteheads and inflamed bumps or pimples under the skin. These inflame cysts are known as nodulocystic acne and increasingly concerning to that is conglobata acne – both of which often becoming deep red or purple, and can even be prone to scarring. This is when professional treatment can be truly beneficial in greatly decreasing or even eliminating acne altogether.
Although multiple factors can be involved in these kinds of acne including diet, a professional can address this skin condition properly, and recommend or even provide a skincare treatment that will work for your skin type, which helps to maintain healthy skin overall, and correct acne concerns.
One other acne type, which is usually related to heat and friction on the skin, is mechanica acne. It is also referred to as sports related acne, but can be prevented by wearing absorbent material and fully cleaning your skin after whichever sport you are involved in.
