What is Acne?

Acne is caused by the skin's oil gland, known as the Sebaceous Gland, producing too much sebum ( oil ) which can lead to the clogging of pores. Acne can appear in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, papules and can even become quite severe and turn into cystic acne, creating nodules underneath the skin.

Acne occurs mainly in areas such as Face,Neck, Back, Chest and Shoulders. It is the most common disease and is not conatgious, and although acne is not a serious health threat, sever acne can lead to disfiguring and permanent scarring.

Acne is graded into 4 types ranging from Grade 1 being less active acne to Grade 4 becoming cystic and quite uncomfortable.

What Causes Acne ?

Follicle fallout :
As the body sheds dead skin cells to replace them with new ones, the hair follicle gets clogged with the skin cells. This blockage makes it so that the sebum cannot get out which results in acne.
Overproduction of sebum :
Sometimes, the issue isn't that there is a blockage, but that there is simply too much sebum being created that it gets backed up as it is released. This results in the pimples that appear from acne
Hormones :
Teenagers go through hormonal changes when they go through puberty thus having an effect on hormones which can increase oil production. For women, they go through cycles where their hormones fluctuate. It is because of this that, during some times of the month, a woman might have more acne and during others, she might have no acne.
Stress :
Considerable amounts of stress and frustration, whether with life or with a job, can lead to acne. Tension causes the glands to close up and that results in the backup of sebum that would otherwise be released.

Types of Acne?

Whiteheads : (Grade 1 Acne)
Acne Skin Treatments-WhiteheadsWhiteheads, also know as closed comedones are one of the more common forms of Acne, that can effect anyone's skin. They appear as small whitish bumps underneath our skin and occur when the follicle becomes clooged due to the sticky sebum oil and dead skin cells blocking the opening. The opening to these follicle are so small that no air can get in, which will leave the oil un-oxidised and leave it white.
Blackheads : (Grade 1 Acne)
Blackheads, also known as open comedones are another common form of Acne. Similar to the whitehead, the oil becomes trapped under the skin due to the build up of dead skin and sticky sebum, although the follicle will have a much wider opening, allowing air to get in and react with the oil causing it to oxidise and turn black, giving you a 'Blackhead'
Papules : ( Grade 2/ 3 Acne depending on severity )
Acne Skin Treatments-PapulesPapules are slightly elevated, and appear red and inflammed. Do not attempt to squeeze a papule as this can cause permanent scarring, as a papule does not conatin any pus, so people tend to squeeze and squeeze, causing the follicle to rupture undernath, leaving you with pitted scarring.

 

Pustules : (Grade 3 Acne)
Acne Skin Treatments-PustulesPustules are red and inflammed lesions that are elevated and will have a white head on top, containg pus, the white pus is a mixture of white blood cells that have come to fight the bacteria with in the pustule.

 


Cystic : (Grade 4 Acne)
Acne Skin Treatments-CysticThis is when the acne has become quite inflammed and swollen and is underneath the skin creating large cysts filled with bacteria.
