Types of Acne

AcneOutbreak
B L A C K H E A D S

A blackhead is a clogged pore that is just below the surface. Because they are open to the environment the oil in the blackhead becomes oxidized which then turns it black.

A C N E   O U T B R E A K (PAPSULES)

A papule or acne outbreak is an inflamed pore that is red in color and can become inflamed and a troubling outbreak. Even worse these can become acne scars. Acne scars often stay with a person their entire life and can rob people of self-confidence and self-image. No pus is in a papule.

CystsandNodules
A C N E   V U L G A R I S

Acne vulgaris is a common skin condition in which hair follicles and/or the sebaceous glands that are associated with those follicles become clogged.

C Y S T S   &   N O D U L E S

Both of these types of acne are a little more serious as they are larger and can leave acne scars. With a cyst or nodule, you will notice a large, red bump that doesn’t go away quickly.

Acne Scars

Best Treatment: Laser Acne Treatment

Acne is frustrating for everyone.  Whether it is a teenager who has had to cope with an occasional blemish, or an adult who still has periodic outbreaks, people go to great lengths to avoid having acne.  What is even more frustrating is having to cope with acne scars as a reminded of past breakouts once you are an adult.

Acne scars are created when acne bursts below the surface of the skin. The deeper the burst pore is, the more likely there will be scarring.  Just like anything, once a pore is clogged, things that used to travel through backup, and this backup inflames the skin and pimple is born. Whether teenage acne or adult acne, these backups are frustrating and can cause a great deal of angst. One of the more common dermatology related treatments people seek is acne scar removal. There are a number of possible treatments for acne scars to help make your face smoother and so you can look better and feel more confident.

Cortisone Shot

Bad acne around the face and neck can become hardened after some time. This causes cysts in the area. A cortisone shot from Younique will help drain these cysts. The treatment works the same as a steroid treatment, draining and shrinking the problem area. Once the fluid is totally removed, a topical treatment is often applied so acne wouldn’t re-occur in the area.

Adult as well as Teenage Acne is a common skin condition. It develops when oil, dead skin cells & bacteria get trapped in ones pores, causing them to be inflamed.

This circumstance results in pimples, also known as zits, on the face as well as other areas of the body. This condition is normally found among teenagers. Most teenagers will experience this, but if that’s the case for you, take heart. There are treatments to address your condition that will have your skin looking and feeling better before you know it.
