Acne Types

Types of Acne

If you are suffering from adolescent or adult acne, acne 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 acne types, 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 certain medications, most are usually triggered by hormonal changes or dietary influences that produce a secretion of oil, clogged pores, and bacterial infection resulting from impurities in dermal pores.

Doctors generally classify acne into one of three types:

Comedonal Acne

Develops as a result of accumulated sebum, an oily skin secretion that, along with dead skin cells and surface dirt and impurities, clog the skin’s pores and produce minor outbreaks of blackheads and whiteheads. Comedonal acne typically develops on the forehead, nose, and chin.

Inflammatory Acne

Is characterized by inflammation and redness of blackheads and whiteheads.

Cystic Acne

It 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.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels may help control active acne while restoring a smoother skin tone and texture, eliminating surface imperfections and unclogging pores in the skin. Specialized chemical peels for acne-prone skin are available depending on the specific causes of your acne condition.

Microdermabrasion

It is a safe and effective procedure for removing impurities from the skin’s surface, unclogging and tightening enlarged pores, and producing a smoother and more even skin tone.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a popular treatment solution for acne-prone skin that restores smoothness to the skin’s surface and provides a minimally invasive method of triggering increased collagen production to produce smoother, clearer skin.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

PRP Therapy alone or in combination with microneedling to increase oxygen and blood flow to the skin, producing improvements in skin tone and volume and minimizing moderate to deep acne scars. PRP is one of the most advanced regenerative skin treatments available today and nourishes the skin with natural, powerful stem cells and growth factors derived from your own blood plasma.

Dermal Fillers

Fillers such as Volbella®, Belotero®, and Bellafill® may be effective at treating and diminishing deep acne scars’ appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions About Acne

What is the main cause of acne?

Acne is caused by blocked hair follicles, which can become clogged by excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Hormonal changes, diet, stress and certain medications can also trigger acne breakouts.

What happens if you leave acne untreated?

The most significant risk of leaving acne untreated is scarring. Acne scars can be treated, but it is best to target the source of acne before the condition results in any scars.

What is the best treatment for acne?

The best acne treatment will vary depending on the patient’s skin type, the type of acne they face, and more. Some effective acne treatments include chemical peels, IPL, monthly facials and a proper skin care regimen.

How can I clear up acne fast?

The most effective option for clearing up acne is to seek advice and treatment from a physician or aesthetician. After a consultation, they can recommend a treatment option that best suits the type of acne you have.

How do physicians get rid of acne?

Acne treatment with a physician can include IPL, facials, chemical peels, or other in-office treatments in addition to professional-quality at-home skincare.

What foods cause acne?

If you struggle with acne, it may be best to avoid inflammatory foods such as dairy products, sugars, chocolate, or refined grains. Avoiding or limiting these may help improve acne.

What age is acne the worst?

Acne is usually at its worst between ages 12-24. However, acne can occur at any age.

Does drinking water help with acne?

Staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water can help prevent acne and maintain your skin’s overall health.

Why is my acne not going away?

Some reasons why acne persists can include misunderstanding the type of acne you have and treating it incorrectly, using products that are not suited to your skin type, and not sticking to an at-home skin care routine long enough for it to resolve the issue.

How do I stop acne breakouts?

If you suffer from acne breakouts, it can be beneficial to see a physician or aesthetician to receive professional treatments and advice tailored to your skin type and the specific type of acne you have.
