What You Need to Know About Acne

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne vulgaris (sometimes called pimples or zits), is the most common skin condition in the United States. Pimples initially appear during adolescence, with 90% of adolescents experiencing acne breakouts.

There are four main factors that promote these breakouts, such as:

  • Excess oil. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, which acts as the skin’s natural moisturizer. However, excess oil can cause acne when it clogs the pores along with dead skin cells.
  • Clogged pores. Blackheads and whiteheads also develop when oil, dead skin cells, or even hair folllicles clog the pores.
  • Bacteria. Bacteria Propionibacterium acne (P. acnes) typically resides in the oil glands and feeds on the excess oil, which can lead to inflammation.
  • Hormones. Your hormones also have a considerable impact on your acne. Hormones like androgens can ramp up oil production, thus increasing the likelihood of a breakout. 

So, how can a laser treatment be an effective way to reduce pimples and prevent acne scars?
