Acne Treatment in Delhi

Acne is a common skin condition where clogged pores cause pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, etc. While acne frequently affects teenagers, it can also persist in some adults. Some people have acne-prone skin and have to deal with it throughout their lives. But the best news is that, one can get them managed with advanced Acne Treatment in Delhi at Mehektagul Dermaclinic.

It is also called acne vulgaris. While acne is not fatal or harmful, it does cause pain and may lead to permanent scarring based on its severity. Acne can also lead to emotional distress and insecurities, as it predominantly appears on the face and neck.  Seeking professional acne treatment in Delhi can provide customized solutions to manage and eliminate such concerns.

Where Does Acne Usually Appear?

Acne affects just about everyone at some point in their lives. Teenagers and young adults tend to have more acne due to hormonal changes in the body. It is also seen more in women and people with a family history of acne-prone skin. According to a report by NCBI, 9.34% of people worldwide have acne. The most common areas to notice acne are as follows:

  • Forehead
  • Face 
  • Chest 
  • Upper back 
  • Shoulders 

In short, the areas with a higher number of oil glands have more acne. That’s because the secreted oil clogs the skin pores with dead cells, dirt, and germs from the surroundings. This leads to a bump or a zit, which may contain pus and cause pain.

What are Symptoms of Acne?

A few symptoms of acne are:

  • Whiteheads 
  • Pus filled bumps
  • Blackheads 
  • Pimples 
  • Papules 
  • Nodes
  • Scarring
  • Redness
  • Cysts. 

Most people get a random pimple, whitehead, or blackhead, which goes away in a few days. However, when you repeatedly get pimples in the same area or have too many of them at once, it can be classified as acne. If you have excessive acne on your face, you can consult the expert dermatologists at Mehektagul Dermaclinic to get the best and most effective acne treatment in Delhi.

What is causing my Acne?

Acne treatment in Delhi: Hormonal changes, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), Lack of sleep, Smoking, Stress, and Family history is the Causes and Triggers of Acne

Oil, dirt, dead skin cells, and bacteria clogging the skin's pores are the main causes of acne. Every pore opens into a hair follicle, which also has an oil (sebaceous) gland. The oil released by the gland travels to the skin’s surface through the hair strand and keeps the skin lubricated to prevent drying. However, when this lubrication process is irregular, the follicles may produce excess oil and clog the pores. 

Since the oil prevents the bacteria in the pores from being washed off, it causes pimples or acne. The following are some reasons or triggers for acne:

  • Hormonal changes
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
  • Lack of sleep
  • Smoking 
  • Stress 
  • Family history
  • Medication containing steroids, lithium, birth control pills, etc.
  • Beauty and skincare products with high oil content
  • Milk products (in some cases)
  • High glycemic diet (sugars).

Types of Acne

Best acne treatment in Delhi: A few common types of acne like hormonal acne, fungal acne, nodular acne , and cystic acne.

Acne can be classified into different types based on how it affects your skin. A few common types are as follows:

  • Hormonal Acne 

The sebaceous glands' excessive production of oil or sebum is what causes hormonal acne. It is seen in teenagers and pregnant women. 

  • Fungal Acne

The yeast buildup in the hair follicles is what causes it, also known as pityrosporum folliculitis. Fungal acne is itchy and inflammatory. 

  • Nodular Acne 

Nodular acne is a severe form where pimples appear on the surface of the skin, and nodular lumps grow inside the skin under the pimple. 

  • Cystic Acne 

Cystic acne is also a severe form where deep pus-filled pimples and nodules erupt on the skin. These are painful and cause deep scars. 

Acne Treatments

Based on the severity of acne, the effective acne treatment in Delhi provided at our clinic varies. The acne treatments can be broadly classified into the following three types:

  • Mild Acne Treatments

Mild acne can be treated using OTC (over-the-counter) topical applications containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. These are spot treatments and not a long-term solution. 

  • Moderate  Acne Treatments

If the acne persists even after using topical applications, consult a dermatologist for a skin examination. Moderate acne is treated by prescribing retinoids, benzoyl peroxide for stronger concentrations, and antibiotics like ery-thro-my-cin. 

  • Severe  Acne Treatments

Severe acne requires a combination of treatments depending on the skin type, age, and other health ailments. It includes topical applications, oral medication, and repeated sessions for chemical peels, injections, etc., by the dermatologist. 

Preventing Acne and Home Remedies

Note that home remedies found on the internet can be risky and may not be medically safe. The best thing to do is to follow the below steps and consult a dermatologist for effective acne treatment. 

  • Gently wash your face and neck twice a day, after a workout or sweating.
  • Stay away from sunlight and use water-based sunscreen with high SPF protection.
  • Don’t opt for artificial tanning, as it can further damage your skin. 
  • Avoid skincare products that cause irritation, like exfoliants and astringents.
  • Don’t use heavy oil or cream-based skincare products, as they clog the pores.
  • Don’t touch, squeeze, or prick the acne, as it can lead to infection. 
  • To prevent forehead acne from oily hair, wash your hair frequently with a mild shampoo.
