Acne & Acne Scarring

What is acne? 

Acne is the common cause of spots. Acne comes about because you skin contains small sebaceous glands. These glands make oil called sebum. This is what keeps our skin smooth and subtle.  We have little hairs which also grow through these pores which allows for the sebum to cover the skin.

Sebum is either predetermined by our genetics (some of us produce more oil than others), puberty (hormones), sporting actives, stress, picking pimples (spreading bacteria) hormonal imbalances, medications and blocked pores (which can turn into pimples). Trapped sebum (blocked pores) can create an environment ripe for bacteria to develop and surround inflammation (redness surround the pimple) and in some rare there are nodules and cysts. 

The four main categories of acne

Grade 1, consists primarily of blackheads and whiteheads. Suffer no inflammation or reddening and are most often seen around the nose, forehead and chin area.

Grade 2, blackheads and whiteheads exhibits in many numbers. Come in many sizes with slight inflammation. Can appear on the cheeks, chin, jawline as well as the nose and forehead area.

Grade 3, generally much more severe than Grade 2 and the inflammation is a lot worse with more redness surrounding the pimple. This is then the infection is deeper much easily spreads which can lead to acne scarring.

Grade 4, this is when acne turns nodule like or cystic and can be seen beyond the face, to neck arms, back and chest. Inflammation is much worse and can be painful, as well as acne scarring is most likely.
