Acne is a very common dermatological condition, which occurs not only during puberty but also in adulthood. If it is not treated it leaves scars and skin discolouration.
There are many causes of acne: genetic factors which condition the structure of the sebaceous gland and the composition of sebum, hormones, the environment, improper skin care, inflammation caused by P. acnes bacteria etc.
Dermatologist decides on a proper pharmacological treatment based on the examination and the type of acne and if necessary recommends a supplementary therapy. It is a dynamic process which requires regular check-ups and periodic modification of prescriptions depending on the progress of treatment. The patients need to be patient and trust the specialist as dealing with all symptoms of the disease can take even up to a year.
In case of remission the specialist plans treatments to help the skin regenerate. The best effects are achieved when various laser technologies are combined with platelet-rich-plasma (PRP), peelings and micro needling of skin.
