What Really is Acne?

Acne is a stubborn skin concern that tends to be ubiquitous among teenagers, yet can persist into adulthood. Characterized by the presence of excessive oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria, acne primarily manifests as red pimples emerging on the face, neck and back.

Types of Acne Handled at Lougheed Laser Centre

Acne can come in many forms. Some of the sub-types that we comprehensively treat at Lougheed Laser Centre include:

- Acne Vulgaris: Defined by its moderate to severe inflammation, acne vulgaris is widespread, breaching both the facial and body region.
- Comedonal Acne: Represented by blackheads and whiteheads, comedonal acne is typically produced in the pores due to the accumulation of sebum and dead skin cells.
- Cystic Acne: Identified as the most severe form of acne, cystic acne exhibits deeper inflammation within the skin and requires professional intervention.
- Hormonal Acne: Predominantly occurring in women, hormonal acne often flares up in sync with the menstrual cycle and requires a specific treatment approach.

Acne Causes

While the exact cause of acne still remains a topic of scientific discussion, a few factors that may contribute include increased sebum production, hormonal changes, and bacterial growth. Other potential triggers could be diet, stress and certain medications.
