Types of Acne
If you are suffering from adolescent or adult acne, acneic skin, active acne, acne breakouts, enlarged pores, acne scars, or acne hyperpigmentation, you are among the thousands of individuals who require advanced professional treatment for acne.
There are several types of acne, and conditions vary among patients depending on such varied factors as age, skin type, diet, and lifestyle.
While some cases may be caused by genetics, or by certain medications, most are usually triggered by hormonal changes or dietary influences that produce secretion of oil, clogged pores, and bacterial infection resulting from impurities in dermal pores.
Doctors generally classify acne into one of three types:
Develops as a result of accumulated sebum, an oily skin secretion that, along with dead skin cells and surface dirt and impurities, clog the pores of the skin and produce minor outbreaks of blackheads and whiteheads. Comedonal acne typically develops on the forehead, nose, and chin.
Is characterized by inflammation and redness of blackheads and whiteheads.
Is the most severe type of acne, and is characterized by a painful and inflamed infection of blemishes on the skin, which in many cases may produce permanent scarring.
