Best Acne Treatment in Delhi

What causes acne ?

  • Acne appears when the oil glands present to hair follicles are stimulated during puberty by increased levels of hormones. Increased sebum production by the sebaceous gland (androgens play a major role).
  • Sebum is a type of thick sticky oil produced by sebaceous glands which lubricate and protects the skin. It is associated with increased oil production wherein skin cells mature and clog the follicular openings. The clogged hair follicle gradually enlarges and produces a bump. As the bump gets bigger, the wall can rupture, providing easy access to substances and normal skin bacteria into the deeper layers of the skin, finally leading to inflammation.
  • Deeper inflammation causes a pimple, and if the oil breaks through to the surface; it results in a “whitehead”. While if the oil changes color from white to black, the result is “blackhead”. Blackheads should not be mistaken for dirt as they are not caused due to poor hygiene.

Best Acne Treatment in Delhi

Acne or pimples is the most common chronic inflammatory skin problem that affects many people all around the globe. Many teens, women, and men are affected by severe acne and breakouts that can affect their face, jawline, neck, chest, shoulder, and back. Acne emerges on the skin as congested pores known as blackheads or whiteheads, tender red bumps known as pimples or zits, pustules, and cysts. They develop in and around the hair follicles and their oil-producing glands called the sebaceous glands.

In acne, the skin pores get clogged with dirt, bacteria, and oil. It is not only caused by bacteria, though bacteria play an important role in its development by clogging the pores and causes inflammation and pimples formation. Multiple other factors are also responsible for causing acne such as hormonal imbalance, improper diet, sebum production in excess, and the invasion and growth of bacteria.  Severe acne extends deep into the skin and tends to be painful. Cysts, nodules, blackheads, whiteheads are seen when the acne is severe. Acne is diagnosed and graded on the type and basis of lesions.

Living with acne can be tough and can also lead to developing anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem. Therefore, acne has also been recognized as a psychosocial problem.

The factors that lead to the formation of acne lesions are:

Propionibacterium acnes colonizes the follicle.
