Acne Treatment – Price & Review Guide (2021) Singapore

Acne treatment is the treatment of acne, a skin condition that arises when oil and dead skin cells clog your hair follicles. It produces pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. Teenagers are the most affected by acne, it is also common to find acne in adults.

Although there are effective acne treatments available, acne may be stubborn. The pimples and bumps take a long time to cure, and as one starts to fade, another appear. Many patients will often experience acne scars which requires additional treatments to treat.

Acne can cause emotional anguish as well as skin scarring, depending on its severity. The earlier you begin treating acne, the lesser your chances of developing such issues.

What causes acne?

Acne develops when your skin’s pores become clogged with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.

Each pore on your skin is a follicle’s entrance. A hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland make up the follicle. Sebum (oil) is produced by the oil gland and travels up the hair shaft, out of the pore, and onto your skin. Sebum keeps your skin supple and moisturised.

The cases of acne can be the following or a combination of the following:

  • Your follicles create an excessive amount of oil
  • In your pores, dead skin cells gather
  • Bacteria can accumulate in your pores
  • The growth of pimples is aided by these issues. When bacteria thrives in a plugged pore and the oil cannot leave, a pimple forms

Acne can also be caused by hormonal change, medication, diet and stress. It is important to seek acne treatments to avoid the conditions getting worse.

 

What are the types of Acne?

Whitehead / Blackhead

The most common kind of acnes are whitehead and blackhead. Due to the blocked pores in the skin, the clogged pores can occur as a result of excessive oil, bacteria, or skin cell formation, as well as hormonal fluctuations. Although tempting, do not try to remove blackhead or whitehead by squeezing as it could potentially result in acne scars.

Papules & Pustule

Papules are little red lumps that occur when oil or dead skin cells clog a pore and mingle with Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) bacteria on your skin. The bacterias are able to escape into the surrounding skin tissue causing inflammatory lesion.

Pustule are similar to papules, however it contains pus. Pustules occurs due to an infected blocked pore, resulting in bulging pimples with a white core and red, irritated skin on the outside.

Nodule Acne

Nodular acne is characterized by flesh-colored or red pimples underneath the skin’s surface. C. acnes bacterium causes a painful infection deep within the pore, resulting in nodular acne.

Cystic Acne

Cystic acne is the most severe type of acne, and it is caused by a deep infection in the skin. Acne cysts are big, red, inflammatory, painful, and pus-filled blemishes on the skin. Because cysts are pus-filled and frequently burst, infecting the surrounding skin.
