Acne Treatment For The Apex, NC Area
Acne, not only affects teenager’s skin, but also it is actually a condition that can affect adults, males or females. It generally begins during adolescence.
Taking an assertive approach to treating acne is very important. Your daily skin care regime, along with the acne treatment, are key factors in your fight to cure acne.
This section of our website was designed to help you understand your skin acne more clearly, and to provide information about maintaining acne control and
options for its treatment.
Once you have acne, you should seek acne treatment early. You may be able to prevent scars from developing in the future. If you already have
we will discuss your treatment options currently available to reduce or remove them.
The exact cause of acne is unknown, but doctors believe it results from several related factors. One important factor is rising hormone levels. These hormones, called androgens (male sex hormones), increase in both boys and girls during puberty and can cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and make more sebum. Another factor is heredity or genetics. Researchers believe that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents. For example, studies have shown that many school-age boys with acne have a family history of the disorder.
Myths About The Causes Of Acne
Acne is caused by poor hygiene. If you believe this myth, and wash your skin hard and frequently, you can actually make your acne worse. Acne is not caused by dirt or surface skin oils.
The best approach to hygiene and acne: Gently wash your face twice a day with a mild soap, pat dry--and use an appropriate acne treatment for the acne.
Myth #2: Acne is caused by diet. Extensive scientific studies have not found a connection between diet and acne. In other words, food does not cause acne. Not chocolate. Not
French fries. Not pizza. Nonetheless, some people insist that certain foods affect their acne.
Myth #3: Acne is just a cosmetic disease. Yes, acne does affect the way people look and is not otherwise a serious threat to a person’s physical health. However, acne can result in permanent physical scars--plus, acne itself as well as its scars can affect the way people feel about themselves to the point of affecting their lives.
Myth #4: You just have to let acne run its course. The truth is, acne can be cleared up. If the acne products you have tried haven’t worked, consider seeing a
medical doctor. With the products available today, there is no reason why someone has to endure acne or get acne scars.
