Juvenile Acne: Scars That Can Last A Lifetime

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 238

Juvenile acne is a very common skin disease. About 80% of teenagers have acne lesions (pimples) of various kinds and of varying severity.

The fact that acne affects mostly the face (our ticket to the world), as well as the back and chest, the damage to the image of himself can persist into adulthood, especially if scars remain.

Acne is caused by several factors, mostly hormonal and bacterial, leading to a chronic inflammation of the pilo-sebaceous follicles present in greater numbers, on the face, back and chest.

Acne is characterized by the formation of closed and open comedones ("white spots and blackheads") for obstruction of hair follicles from excess sebum produced by sebaceous glands stimulated by male hormones (androgens). The comedones may then be ignited by the proliferation, within them, a bacteria: Propionibacterium acnes. If we train well, papules and pustules ("pimples") that may lead to small scars and blemishes.

If the inflammation is very intense and is aggravated by unsuitable treatment, "pimples", very large and deep nodules and cysts, are formed which when healed leave depressed scars, often disfiguring. Very frequently, in the affected areas, various types of acne lesions in different evolutionary phases are present at the same time.

The dermatologist classifies acne (comedonal, papular, papulopustular, nodular cystic) according to the type of lesion that prevail over the other, after the skin examination and any laboratory tests aimed at establishing possible hormonal dysfunction, you can customize the therapy, adapting it to your needs and your cosmetic habits.

The frustration, pain or discomfort for this imperfection can make you very anxious. You want to eliminate, or at least reduce, the visible lesions quickly! And if you do not get results in the short term, it can leave you discouraged. While there is now more effective care, it's very important to make the right decision! To treat acne, therefore, we must try to achieve maximum benefit in the shortest possible time.

Even in treating comedonal acne, the mild acne most common, the treatment times are long. Unfortunately, very often the first results of the traditional anti-acne topical and systemic therapies are seen after a few weeks or few months. Fortunately there are outpatient treatments such as the chemical peel with trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid and leading to visible improvements in a few days and encourage greater effectiveness of subsequent treatment of acne at home. It has an effect of "deep cleaning" of the skin and the patient, noting the benefit, feels more motivated. The technique involves the application of acid substances that produce the destruction of the superficial skin layers (and "pimples") and a subsequent skin renewal: the phase parts of the skin (exfoliation and re-epithelialization) is the most delicate to handle, therefore it is appropriate that the treatment is performed by a specialist dermatologist with extensive experience.

Treatment can result in an improvement of blemishes and acne scars, post-acne (the skin will be smoother and more luminous).
