Cystic acne occurs when big, red, and painful outbreaks occur deep into the skin. Considered as the most severe kind of acne, it usually leaves acne scars behind affecting facial appearance.

The acne occurs when an infection spreads deep into the skin, resulting in a pus-filled bump. It may be painful or itchy.

When a cyst ruptures, the infection might spread, resulting in more breakouts.

Although it is not easy, these outbreaks are treatable. Seek a medical professional and avoid attempting to wait them out.

Cystic acne is a chronic condition that can linger for years. It can cause significant damage to big sections of your skin and create scars. An aesthetic clinic with experience  can assist you in formulating a treatment plan.

What is Cystic Acne?

Cystic acne is regarded to be the most serious type of acne. The infection is deep in the skin and is commonly found on the cheeks and jawline.

Due to its depth and inflammation, this form of acne leaves noticeable scarring. When bacteria becomes caught in the pores, it causes an infection deep within the skin. It looks to be a pus-filled red and painful lump.

This kind of acne can cause excruciating agony, both mentally and physically. This occurs because there is no way to discharge the germs and oil that has built up inside, causing pain and discomfort.

A serious skin problem like this necessitates acne treatment in order to be successfully and safely rid of it.

What causes Cystic Acne?

Cystic acne can be caused by a variety of reasons. The most common culprits are diet, genetics, hormones and pore condition.

Your hormones are out of control throughout adolescence, which results in increased sebaceous gland activity. Your skin will become overly oily as a result of this.

Excess oil will combine with dead skin cells on the skin’s surface to produce sticky plugs that will clog your pores.


Hormonal Cystic Acne

Hormonal acne is most commonly connected with hormone fluctuations during adolescence, it can afflict adults of any age. More common in women than in men, the acne are caused by menstruation resulting in excess oil production.

For teenagers, the effects of hormonal acne will appear more on the T zone, affecting forehead and nose more.

For individuals suffering from hormonal adult acne, the spots often appear in the lower region of the face, affecting cheeks and jawline.


Diet cause Cystic Acne

Choosing the right diet is very important to acne treatment. Consuming too much oily food will produce excessive oil, resulting in clogged skin.

Acne is also commonly triggered by high-glycemic diets and dairy products. There are many cases of cystic acne surfacing due to dairy.

Although there is no clear medical evidence that linked milk to acne breakout, there are many patients who recovered from changing their diet.


Genes cause Cystic Acne

Despite the fact that there isn’t a single gene that makes you more prone to have acne, research has revealed that genetics plays a part in causing acne.

If you come from a family with oily skin, the chances of you having oily skin is higher. Both parents may have the same or different acne-causing genetic components.

One parent may pass on a hormonal abnormality that causes acne, while the other may pass on a greater inflammatory reaction to germs or other genetic variables.
