What Causes Acne?
Despite prevailing beliefs associating acne with factors like diet and exercise, its primary cause often stems from the accumulation of oil beneath the skin’s surface, leading to obstruction within hair follicles. This oil, known as sebum, originates from the sebaceous glands. When combined with dead skin cells, it forms a plug within pores, triggering redness and inflammation in the skin. Introducing bacteria into these congested pores can exacerbate infection and inflammation, exacerbating the appearance of acne lesions.
Certain individuals possess inherently acne-prone skin or may contend with musculoskeletal and dermatological conditions that heighten their susceptibility to acne breakouts.
At Rodgers Dermatology, patients may encounter various forms of acne, with acne vulgaris being the most prevalent. This type typically manifests common acne symptoms, including:
During an initial exam, Dr. Rodgers will determine the type of acne the patient may be suffering from and prescribe the recommended treatment option to reduce the symptoms and treat the condition. We will also rule out the possibility of skin diseases, rashes, allergies, or other severe skin reactions.
Treating Acne: FAQ
There are many questions about acne, prescription acne treatments, and long-term solutions for acne scarring. View some of the most common questions about acne risk factors below, and contact our Frisco, Texas office with any additional questions or concerns.
Absolutely! Hormonal acne can affect anyone, though it is most common during puberty and amongst menstruating and menopausal women. You may also discover that acne occurs from the hormonal changes associated with starting or stopping estrogen-containing oral contraceptives. Emotions also affect acne breakouts, especially intense emotions, such as stress, fear, or anger.
There are many studies that indicate a high glycemic diet could be associated with more frequent acne breakouts, but eating sugar in moderation may not affect acne. Additionally, patients who may be lactose-intolerant typically experience fewer breakouts when reducing their dairy intake. Avoiding foods with a high grease content may help to improve not only your skin but also your overall health.
Absolutely! Strong emotions, including high stress, can cause acne breakouts more frequently, as well as making present acne worse.
Any exposure to the sun, especially without proper sunscreen, can potentially worsen acne. While the effects of being in the sun may alleviate some acne by drying out the skin, this is often a short-lived result of sun exposure. Make sure to use sunscreen any time you may be exposed to the harsh UV rays of the sun to protect your skin and help to prevent long-term conditions, such as skin cancer.
There are several over-the-counter topical medications that may assist in controlling and alleviating the symptoms of acne, though it’s important to choose the best options for your skin type and your acne severity level. A patient with oily skin will need different products than a patient with dry skin, for example.
During an initial exam, Dr. Rodgers may recommend over-the-counter treatments such as facial cleansers, toners, and moisturizers to reduce the appearance of acne.
Before purchasing products at your local drug store to treat acne, schedule an appointment with Dr. Rodgers to ensure you are choosing the right products for your skin type and conditions.
Whether or not you suffer from acne, it’s important to keep your skin clean and moisturized to prevent early signs of aging. In addition, chemical peels can be effective for mild to moderate acne, as they rapidly exfoliate the skin and cause dead skin cells to shed. Dr. Rodgers can recommend the best cleansers, moisturizers, and other treatments for your specific skin type during an initial appointment to ensure the long-term care of your skin.
