    Default Acne scar treatment....

    Hey! I'm 19 years old and live in Toronto. I had acne since 11 years old and I treated them with aloe Vera. There was a slight change in acne but there was no change in the acne scars. Now I'm tired of trying different methods to get rid of those scars so I'm planning to go for acne and acne scar treatment from a clinic in my locality. I just wonder what would be the procedure like? No one in my family had undergone this treatment so I have no idea about this procedure, I would be grateful if anyone here could explain it in details. Thanks!!

    Hi joy! Welcome to DermaTalk. At your age is very common to have few acnes or pimples. But if it's really plenty we can go for treatments to avoid complications. Keeping It clean is really acnes can be treated with antibiotics and acne scars can be treated with lasers like fractional CO2.

    Thank you for the reply. As suggested, I'm going to treat acne scars with fractional CO2. I have already scheduled an appointment with Dr. Padma Jain in Fairview Laser clinic, Toronto for next week. I hope there won't be any side effects. Will update the status once I start my treatment.

    Acne or pimples is a common skin condition frequently seen in young individuals during teenage and youth years. This occurs mainly due to the action of hormones on the oil glands in the skin. The draining ducts of the oil glands get blocked and hence they are not able to drain the oil secretion. The oil and cells inside the blocked gland form a perfect environment for the growth of Propionibacterium acnes (the organism responsible for acne). Thus, it results in the formation of pimples or acne.

    Acne may present itself in various forms and these are as follows:
    Whiteheads and blackheads (Comedones): White or black tiny bumps on the skin which are nothing but the enlarged and plugged hair follicles
    Papules: Inflamed lesions that usually appear as small, pink bumps on the skin and can be tender to the touch
    Pustules (pimples): Pus-filled lesions that may be red at the base
    Nodules: Large, painful, solid lesions that are lodged deep within the skin
    Lesions that can cause scarring

    Types of Acne

    Following are the commonly recognized types of Acne:
    Acne vulgaris
    Acne rosacea
    Acne conglobata
    Acne cosmetica
    Acne fulminans
    Acne medicamentosa
    Acne keloidalis nuchae

    Causes of Acne:

    One of the most important causes is the increase in the male hormones (androgens) that occurs in boys as well as girls during puberty. These hormones cause an increased production of sebum (oil) and hence result in acne.
    Hormonal changes related to pregnancy or such changes caused by starting or stopping birth control pills can also cause acne. Another factor is heredity or genetics; there is evidence to support the fact that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents. Apart from this certain drugs, including androgens and lithium, are also known to cause acne. Greasy cosmetics may cause further plugging of the follicles in the skin and hence can precipitate the onset of acne.
    Majority of people who develop acne are between the ages of 12 and 25. For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their thirties; however, some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem.

    Homeopathic treatment for Acne is strongly suggested. It helps in the following ways:
    Controls the tendency to have acne (often genetic, in severe cases)
    Addresses underlying hormonal disturbance which gives one a proneness to have acne
    Reduces excessive oiliness of skin
    Reduces acne directly
    Controls infection
    Controls scar formation
    Reduces hyperpignementation following acne
    Controls tendency to scar formation following acne

    Homeopathic Remedies for Acne

    Acne is a dynamic conditions triggered by multiple factors such as hormones, food, climate, irregular lifestyle and stress. The homeopathic medicines for acne or pimples are chosen on the basis of the underlying causes and factors which lead to or increases acne.
