Though the moon spots makes beauty to it, dots of strawberry forms quite look to it. But the same spots over the girls skin makes her look out of beauty box. This spots mostly cause due to the acne problem. There is a cure for many of the skin problems, but it’s not the case with acne, no complete cure to it. There are some treatments and some medications for avoiding the break outs of acne.

    Basically the acne has three stages based on the range of acne. Topical, systemic and procedural are the categories. To know the acne stage and its accurate treatment we can consult either dermatologist or esthetician. Esthetician is not a dermatologist but will have complete information regarding through it. He/she may not provide the exact medication but offers the effective treatments.  On the basis of severity we can prefer either dermatologist or esthetician.

  • Reasons for the occurrence of acne!!!
    By Health Blog on April 12, 2010 | No Comments  Comments

    Usually the diseases occur to the people who are weak and prone to be affected by the virus or some bacteria but the strange thing with acne is that it occurs in the healthiest and most hygienic of people. So what causes acne? Is it the environment? The water we use? The food we eat? Or is it some form of allergy? The answer is possible a combination of all.

    There is no knowing when or where acne will strike anyone. People of all ages have been affected by this dreaded skin disorder that just does not seem to go away, and if it does go there is no guarantee that it will stay away. That acne was a condition of teenaged skin is a bygone belief of yesteryear, people aged well over 40 have contracted acne and have been stuck with the disorder for years. So acne is definitely not choosy about age caste or creed.


    Then what causes acne?

    There are cells within the skin those secret natural oils for the nourishment of the hair follicles in the skin in general. These glands are the main culprits that cause acne. The severity of the attack depends on the habits and the type of skin of the person. The oil secreted by the glands clog the pores in the skin, which lead to infection and accumulation of pus. This is acne that is very difficult to heal.

    The kind of food you eat, the place you stay and the way you look after your skin all play a vital role in deciding your risk level of contracting acne. A hot humid climate will lead to a very oily skin. This is the very first indication that must put one on the alert and repelling action must be taken if one does not want to develop acne.

    A good way to go solve this problem is to habituating to cleansing of the skin. Wash your face at least twice a day with a facial cleanser such as glycolic acid. This cleanser does not leave the skin dry but leaves behind enough oil to nourish the skin. Never use an oily substance to clean the skin as oil is the natural culprit that clogs the pores leading to acne in the first place. Also never dry the skin completely.

    Take care of your back at least once a day along with your neck, shoulders and arms as acne also strikes these places as well. When you have finished the cleansing process then use some good skin moisturizer to replenish the moisture in the skin. This may sound very tiresome but it is necessary if you have signs of developing acne.

    Acne is more prevalent in adolescents as they go through a very rough phase of life with their hormones becoming very active during this part of their life. Adolescents experience many eruptions on the skin and at most times these eruptions change into acne. Testosterone is the main culprit causing acne. Testosterone is a hormone found in females as well as males, it is not purely a male hormone.

    Stress is another culprit that causes acne so take some time off to meditate and de-stress yourself. It is important to control stress if you want your acne treatment to be effective. Stress produces toxic substances that can cause extra oily secretions that clog pores leading to acne. So clean your skin, and relax then let your acne treatment work for you.

  • Medicines that can cure Acne
    By Health Blog on April 7, 2010 | No Comments  Comments

    There are several ways in which acne can be cured. These treatments include artificial and natural treatments. The following is a list of commonly prescribed artificial medications for the treatment of Acne. While these treatments have positive outcomes for many users, there are side effects which should be considered when taking them. In addition, no one drug will work for everybody, so sometimes an Acne sufferer may have to try several treatment options. These are some of the options that are medically proved for preventing acne.

    acne cure

    Antibiotic Acne Medication: Taken orally, various antibiotic medications have been employed in the treatment of acne. Research has shown that many antibiotics ameliorate Acne and are often prescribed for persistent, moderate-to-severe acne. As with all these medications, they should be administered only by a qualified physician.

    Cortiscosteroids: This potent antibiotic treatment should only be prescribed for very severe cases of acne, and should only be taken for short periods of time. The metabolic side-effects of steroids have been well-documented and if taken in large quantities, or for long periods of time, may have long-term effects on the reproductive capabilities of young people. As a result, they are not recommended for most cases of acne treatment.

    Tetracycline: Tetracycline has been the most commonly prescribed acne treatment for many years. It has had good results for moderate-to-severe acne. The usual dosages range from 500 to 1000 mg per day, and dosage is decreased as the skin condition improves. Tetracycline has been associated with decreased bone development and teeth staining, and therefore it is not appropriate for children under the age of eight. Due to its effects on bone development, it is also not an appropriate choice for pregnant or nursing women. Other common side effects include increased sun sensitivity, diarrhea and nausea.

    Minocycline and Doxycycline: Derived from Tetracycline, research suggests that these drugs may be more effective in the treatment of Acne. Both drugs have higher concentrations in the tissues and have been associated with more effective and more rapid improvements in visible Acne. Doxycycline may cause sore throats or heart burn and must be taken with large amounts of water. Minocycline has been associated with drug induced lupus symptoms but is the least likely of the Cycline drugs to induce photosensitivity. However, skin pigmentation problems do occur with both these medications. The higher concentrations of both drugs in the tissues may also lead to liver reactions. Neither is appropriate for use in young children or for pregnant or nursing women.

    Erythromycin: Available in both oral and topical applications, is a safer alternative for pregnant women and young children. It has the advantage antibacterial and anti-inflammatory treatment results, reducing both the cause and the effects of acne. Its oral form is easy to use but may cause some gastrointestinal upset. It is also a good alternative for those who are allergic to penicillin and the cyclines.

    Isotretinoin: Derived from Retinoid A, this antibiotic is a revolutionary new treatment that has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of severe and treatment resistant Acne. Clinical trials have shown it to be beneficial for all forms of Acne, but there are many side affects attributed to Isotretinoin. These include severe effects such as birth defects, excessive dryness of mucous membranes and the skin, depression, inflammatory bowel disease and erectile dysfunction. There are several other milder effects which should be thoroughly discussed with a physician before this drug is prescribed. In addition, there is disagreement among medical practitioners concerning the dosage levels needed for optimum effects and the long term effects are still under investigation.

    laser treatment

    While laser is a very good treatment for acne it can be a bit on the expensive side so science has come up with an alternative treatment for acne during the active period of the disorder. This is a treatment that involves the use of aluminum hydroxide crystals that are used as an abrasive to remove layers of the skin. The abrasion removes the dead layers of the skin that assist in the spread of acne and cause a hindrance to the treatment of the disorder. Though this treatment is used only with the most severe forms of acne and used on acne that threatens to spread over the area. Aluminum hydroxide crystals are best used in areas such as the back and neck as these places are difficult to reach and need effective and fast treatment.
