Acne is a skin condition that consists of pimples, deeper lumps (cysts or nodules), and plugged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and even the upper arms.

Acne
Signs & Symptoms
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Papules
  • Pustules (what many people call pimples)

Treatment
The easiest way to prevent acne is to take proper care of your skin by cleaning your skin with a mild, non-drying soap. This will remove all dirt or make-up.
Treatment for acne depends on how severe it is. It can take several months of treatment before acne symptoms improve.
The methods basically rely on the application of laser beams to help eliminate both acne and the resulting scars.
Keep off the following five:

  • Tanning
  • Over exfoliation
  • Teasing the acne
  • Dryness of the skin (use a moisturizer)
  • Over enthusiastic use of skin products

Related Procedures

  • Antibiotics, Isotretinoin, Birth control pills or other medicine that works on hormones
  • Lasers and other light therapies
  • Acne Surgery

Ask a dermatologist for successful diagnosis and treatment of acne.
