Prevent acne in time with proper skincare and a healthy lifestyle
Acne vulgaris is one of the most common skin diseases, which according to some studies affects as many as 80% of teenagers, although it can also occur later in life. It is a disease that affects the pilosebaceous unit and is clinically characterized by the appearance of comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Acne most often appear on the face, back, shoulders, and cleavage. In addition to genetic predisposition, lifestyle, diet, stress, hormones, bacteria, inappropriate skincare with various dermo-cosmetics, etc. play a role in the development of acne.
Treat acne in time to prevent acne scars!
Acne is diagnosed based on a clinical examination of the skin, and their severity can vary. According to the severity of the clinical picture, acne can be mild, medium, and severe. Acne often leaves scars, which is why it is important to treat them in time. We treat acne based on its type and the severity of the clinical picture. Regular check-ups by a dermatologist are necessary since the type of acne can change during treatment, and treatment should be modified accordingly in order to get acne under control as soon as possible and thereby prevent them.
Acne often leaves scars and pigmentation after healing. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is not acne scarring in a strict sense and it usually passes on its own, although it can take more than a year. Hyperpigmentation actually refers to spots that remain at the site of inflammation. By choosing the right treatment for hyperpigmentation, we can make it heal faster than it would naturally. Acne scars are the result of inflammation and they can occur below the normal layer of skin tissue (atrophic scars) or above the normal layer of skin tissue (hypertrophic scars). Atrophic acne scars most often occur in the facial area, and they have a distinct shape and depth. The treatment of acne scars is often a long-term process that requires good cooperation between the patient and the doctor and often a combination of several treatment methods.
