Acne is chronic, an inflammatory cosmetic concern that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. Although it is prevalent among teenagers during puberty, it is not restricted to any particular age group. If you are seeking effective acne treatments, call us today at Derm.ca Dermatology & Esthetics in Calgary for your consultation.
What causes Acne?
There are several factors that stem from acne breakouts including genetics, hormones, excessive oil production, bacterial infection, or clogged hair follicles. Pimples are formed when hair follicles get blocked and the oily substance called sebum builds up under the skin. At least 85 percent of people in the U.S. experience acne between the ages of 12 and 24 years.
Are There Effective Acne Treatments?
Mild acne can be treated by using over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as gels, soaps, pads, creams, and lotions, that are topically applied. There are steroidal and non-steroidal creams and gels that are effective against them. They help to control the bacteria, slow down sebum formation, and reduce swelling. However, severe or persistent breakouts of acne might require a prescription-strength solution. For highly effective acne treatments, call us today to schedule your consultation. Our team can help you find the treatment that is right for you.
