Acne Treatments


What is acne?

It is a skin condition that causes the appearance of skin lesions as a result of folliculitis, that is, inflammation and subsequent infection of the follicular pore. When the pores become clogged, acne is created, it can appear as pimples, blackheads, closed comedones or even cysts.

Why does acne appear?

This condition is not due to an exact cause, but the hormonal increase caused in adolescence is a factor, as well as the hormonal changes that occur in pregnancy, the use of contraceptives, certain medications that contain steroids, oestrogens, testosterone, and the use of creams and makeups that are high in fat. More factors are excessive humidity and a high degree of sweat.
