What Really Causes Acne?
Acne is due to bacteria that attracts excess amounts of white blood cells to the follicles in the skin. The white blood cells produce certain enzymes that can damage the skin follicles and causes sebum to be released into the dermis. This results in an inflammation which causes bumps and acne to come to the surface of the skin. There is no exact cause for some people to experience more problems with acne than others; however, there are things that can contribute to outbreaks including an unhealthy diet, hereditary acne, hormones, the environment and poor hygiene. Over time the acne can create scarring that can only be treated and/or removed by a dermatologist.
Acne scar revisions and acne scar treatment are two of the most common procedures requested of a dermatologist. For acne scar removal, San Diego residents often rely on Dr. Ataii of Laser Clinique for a treatment such as laser resurfacing, a chemical peel or vibradermabrasion or other types of acne scar treatment. Although a chemical peel is the most common choice of acne scar removal which San Diego residents prefer, there are several other options available and your dermatologists will be able to recommend the type of acne scar treatment best suited for you.
Laser scar removal is also a common method the patients of P. Alexander Ataii M.D. of Laser Clinique request as a way to remove acne scars and skin imperfections. Laser treatments are painless and only require a short period of time for healing. Laser resurfacing is also an effective way to remove dark blemishes and lines/wrinkles on the face. Whether your acne scars are mild, moderate or severe, it is important to speak with an experienced skin care specialist, because there is an effective treatment available to remove them.
