Acne Treatments

Acne is a troubling skin condition that affects just about every demographic there is. Not only is acne a problem when it occurs, but even after it goes away, its scarring is still left to be dealt with. Acne affects almost everyone at some point in their lives; many outgrow it or suffer from it only occasionally. While others bout with it their entire lives. Many medicines are developed to deal with the occurrence of this skin menace, but there are few options that sufferers have when dealing with the scars that are left, other than to give them time and wait for them to fade which is why you should contact Skin Care by Sia.

What Causes Acne Scarring and How Can You Prevent It?

Acne is caused by obstructed hair follicles, but why it occurs is still unknown to doctors and scientists. Once the hair follicle is blocked, postules, papules, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples can occur. All of these skin conditions lead to unattractive scarring. The only way to avoid scarring is to prevent the acne from occurring to begin with, other ways that are often suggested and implemented are:

Avoiding disturbing or picking at the acne – This is the most basic way to deal with acne scarring, but doesn’t always work. Sometimes acne leaves a scar even if you don’t pick at it, and other times the temptation to be hands-off is just too much for many.

Topical Acne treatments – Over-the-counter creams and gels are often used to help fade and diminish the appearance of acne scarring. Over-the-counter treatments typically tend to yield minimal results, while prescriptions are more successful due to their increased level of active ingredients.

Oral treatments – Antibiotics are the most common oral treatment prescribed to those who suffer from acne and acne scarring. These antibiotics are used to inhibit the production of bacteria which lead to acne. Some of the most common treatments are Tetracycline, Isotretinoin, and Erythromycin.
