Acne is one of the most common forms of skin diseases that are caused by various factors such as genetic inheritance, hormones or bacteria.
All cosmetic anti-inflammatory treatments of the face, back, chest and body are performed in the MediDerm clinic.
Acne occurs in 80-85% of adolescents and younger adults, but more and more often they occur to our patients in their thirties.
Depending on the type of skin changes and the severity of the clinical we distinguish several kinds of acne. The latest classification includes 4 forms of the disease:
- Acne comedonica – represent the slightest form of illness, where changes usually occur on the face.
- Acne papulopustulosa – represent a mild to moderate shape, and apart from the face, changes can occur on the back and around the chest.
- Formed acne papulopustulosa / moderate form of acne nodularis – apart from the face, changes affect the back and chest.
- Acne nodularis and acne conglobata – are the most severe form of disease and are more common in young men. After healing, very ugly scars are often left behind, and nearly the entire body can be affected by the disease.
The diagnosis is based on a thoroughly done examination and clinical picture, and the therapy itself is determined depending on the degree of acne and the patient’s age.
In our clinic, besides checking acne and perscribing appropriate local and systemic therapies, we perform a large number of anti-inflammatory treatments with different acids depending on skin type and clinical image, using high-quality products such as Enerpeel, Skin Tech, and Mesoestetic.
Our doctors recommend to making a cycle of 3-5 treatments at intervals of 10-15 days.
In a large number of cases, acne can be avoided or controlled by good skin care.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS ON HOW TO DO IT:
- Wash your face with neutral soap twice a day. Be sure to wash the skin every time it becomes greasy, but do not rub or pinch it so it does not worsen the inflammation.
- Avoid hairstyles where hair is constantly touching your face. Regular hair washing is recommended.
- Do not pop pimples as this may cause inflammation and leave scars.
- Do not expose your skin to excessive heat or strong sunlight. Although the sun may lower the number of acne, it will not cure them, and too much exposure to sunlight can lead to the development of burns and skin cancer.
- Use water-based products and avoid facial oil based cosmetics.
- Although there is no scientific evidence that certain types of food are causing acne, reduce the intake of foods after which a large number of pimples have been reported.
- Be healthy, drink plenty of fluids and exercise regularly. If you feel healthy, your skin will feel that way too.
- Try obtaining lotions (which can be obtained without a prescription), which are effective in drying excessive fat and encouraging healthy skin peeling.
- Try to reduce stress as much as possible.
