Acnes should be considered as the enemy of teenagers. Acnes are common among teenagers during puberty. You should understand different types of acnes, before visiting the best acne treatment clinic in London.
Acne appear on your skin as:
Occluded pores appear in the form of blackhead and whitehead. Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. These bumps are called blackheads because the surface looks dark or black. Blackheads are a mild type of acne that usually form on the face, back, chest, neck, arm, and shoulder.
A whitehead is a type of acne that forms when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria become trapped within one of your pores. Whiteheads can be annoying, and they may seem to develop at the worst times. The good news is that whiteheads can be prevented with a combination of lifestyle changes and medical treatments.
Most type of pimples form when dead skin cells, oil or bacteria block a pore. It grows because of different elements, such like, oily skin, medication side effects, bacteria, change in hormone level, or family history.
Cysts are closed sac-like or capsule structures that may be filled with semisolid material, gaseous material, or liquid. There are several causes of cysts, including genetic, infectious, and other causes that result in hundreds of types of cysts.
Treatment of Acne

Oral antibiotics are taken orally. There are so many oral antibiotics available. The minus point about oral antibiotics is that it causes side-effects. Oral antibiotics is the best way to prevent acne from returning. Mostly, doctors do this treatment for acne, of course with a caution that if you find any major side effect just stop the treatment immediately.
Light treatment is a latest treatment and widely known nowadays.There are two types of lights used for the light treatment. The lights are the Red light and the Blue light.
Red light has traditionally been used for anti-aging purposes because it helps excite collagen.
Blue light has been shown to penetrate the skin’s hair follicles and pores which harbor bacteria and can cause inflammation, and in turn, acne. Bacteria are very sensitive to the blue light spectrum. Thus it shuts down their metabolism and kills them.
Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment a chemical solution is applied on the skin, and after particular time, pilled off. After that, the skin will be smoother and less wrinkled and certain types of acne will be gone. Moreover, it will reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches which have occurred due to pregnancy or consumption of birth control pills.
Treatment of Acne Scars
There are many people who already got rid of pimples or acnes, but they are still suffering from acne scars. The good news is that you do not need to worry any more. There are so many treatments available for scars. Some of them are pointed below.
This treatment is performed by dermatologists and combines two different technologies — micro-needling and radio frequency — for big results in eliminating acne scars. You just need to be careful for 24 hours after the treatment. After that you can wear some makeup to cover lasting redness.
Much like a chemical peel laser, resurfacing removes the top layer of the skin. This treatment typically has a faster healing time than other resurfacing treatments. However, you have to keep the area covered with a bandage until it’s completely healed. However, this is not a nice choice for those who have sensitive skin.
These are the most popular treatments to get rid of the acne and acne scars. For best treatment and result, you should consult a private dermatologist in London.
