Acne, also better known as a pimple to many, grows predominantly on our faces and at times other parts of our body like back, neck and legs etc. It is almost always the acne living off the surface of the former that bothers and causes headaches to a human host. Have you ever wondered what an acne is made up of? Well, they are formed when our glands secrete too much of our natural body oil, also called the sebum, which end up clogging our pores. With time in propagating, this would result in an acne or even cluster of pimples growing on site. As more often than not, with the incredible ability of touching one's face on an average of up to 16 times in an hour, a human host would usually find that the acne problem would get from bad to worse with little discipline. Bacteria would easily infiltrate any acne sites and cause widespread inflammation all round which would spell a bigger problem than what it was originally.
ACNE ROOT AND CAUSES
What exactly causes an acne to develop and what may exacerbate its seriousness in the process? The following is a list of scenarios or conditions that could possibly set off an acne outbreak. Though not restricted to the non-exhaustive list of reasons below, the following are the possible causes. 1.) Stress level 2.) Hormones level changes (puberty stage, taking of hormonal pills etc.) 3.) Direct application of makeup, skin care or even cosmetics on bare skin 4.) Allergy from consumption of food or medication
More often than not, the basics to a facial treatment plan for any inflammation of the skin are usually ignored. In the treatment plan for facial acne problems, the first line of defense everybody should engaged in is a disciplined, periodic and simple facial washing with lukewarm water. This simple act of facial washing not only cleans up the surfaces and exposed inflamed acne sites, the particular temperature of water also combines well with most facial skin cleansing products to bring about just the right amount of foaming, which helps even more, in removal of dirt and unwanted materials from the facial skin.
The next suggested facial treatment plan for an acne would be by application of over the counter prescribed oilment or specific facial creams and facial lotions. However, for those visiting dermatologist and skin doctors, oral prescription may also be given in the form of antibiotics. For serious outbreak of facial acne, Isotretinoin capsules may even be dispensed to the patient as part of the facial treatment plan.
Another possible treatment route in resolving an facial acne problem is through a direct extraction. As the name suggest, this treatment process involves the actual removal of acne using physical instruments like a surgical knife or comedone extractor. The content of the acne could be in a fluid state or solid form. The expelling of the inner contents of an acne via this route of facial treatment is usually fast and effective, though they are only encouraged if all above facial treatment methods were first prescribed and had failed. Reason being, though effective, a direct facial acne extraction treatment plan carries serious risks like facial scarring or even further facial acne inflammation from possible bacterial contamination that could arise from the procedure.
