What is Acne and it’s Treatment?

Have you ever woken up and found red painful breakouts on your face? Yes, you must have. Every person goes through this embarrassment in their lives. These are Acne! Let’s see what our finest Dermatologist for acne in Lansing has to say.

Acne is a chronic skin condition marked by inflammation and breakouts. It affects nearly 85% of the American population between the ages of 12-24. While acne isn’t dangerous, it can cause significant scarring and have a negative impact on your self-esteem.

Acne can affect you in more ways than just skin. They are known to cause you emotional pain whether mild or severe.

Dr. Saif Fatteh, our dermatologist for acne describes the best way to understand acne which is to think about the roles your hair follicles and pores play in maintaining healthy skin. You have millions of hair follicles spread over virtually every area of your body except the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Each of those follicles connects an oil gland to a pore, which extends to the surface of your skin. Your oil glands produce sebum, an oily liquid that helps transport dead skin cells and other debris out of your body.

From time to time a hair follicle becomes blocked, and a combination of sebum, hair, and dead skin cells begins to accumulate into a plug. If that plug becomes infected by bacteria, inflammation follows. Acne is the culmination of the cycle involving plugged follicles, inflammation, and eventually a breakout at the surface of your skin. However, the most crucial thing to know is that any of these acne conditions can be treated better than ever by our expert dermatologist in Lansing with an office at Mount Pleasant as well.

What are the possible causes of Acne?

An extremely common condition, Acne can occur at any time and at any point in a person’s life. Although researchers haven’t pinpointed the exact cause of acne, there are several known factors that can contribute to the condition. While some can be circumstantial due to the make-up products, more than often there can be some internal factors that can trigger acne. It respectively includes:

  • Greasy cosmetics or pore-clogging skincare
  • Hormone fluctuation (puberty, adolescence, menstrual cycle, menopause or even pregnancy)
  • Emotional stress
  • Certain medications
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Certain allergies

Our Acne treatment specialist in Mount Pleasant pinpointed that there also seems to be a genetic component to acne. If you have a close family member who suffered from acne, you may be at an elevated risk.

Prevent acne beforehand instead of going for treatment. Let’s see how you can prevent acne?

You must have observed that Acne starts erupting in the teen years and then keeps occurring for the rest of the life. Besides pain, Acne is unsightly and unattractive leading to loss of self-confidence. So, one would feel like it would be better to prevent it.

Dr. Saif Fatteh, MD believes that it might not be possible to avoid all the breakouts. However, there are things you can to reduce the effects that have on skin and your confidence. One important thing to avoid is aggressive face scrubbing or washing. This will only force the infection deeper into your skin, making it harder for your body’s natural healing process to restore your skin.

The acne dermatologists suggest the following tips which could be helpful in the reduction of breakouts:

  • Avoid touching your face
  • Wash your face no more than two times a day with mild soap and warm water
  • Choose cosmetics and skin care products marketed for sensitive skin, and avoid oil-based products
  • If your acne is on your body, avoid tight clothing that doesn’t let your skin breathe
  • Reduce anxiety and stress

No matter how carefully you follow the above guidelines, some breakouts will still make a place on your face. However, it may definitely reduce the frequency of breakouts and you always have the option of treating acne.

Dr. Fatteh begins by examining your skin, discusses your health history and your experience with acne. He creates a customized acne treatment plan that aligns with your needs.

Medication may play a role in your acne treatment path. For some women, oral contraceptives can help by altering your hormonal balance. Topical antimicrobial medications can help women and men by reducing bacteria known to trigger acne. Oral antibiotics can also be helpful in many cases as a hormonal acne treatment technique.

Isotretinoin, sold under the brand name Accutane, is a drug that can help treat severe acne when other efforts have failed to yield the desired result. This medication carries a risk of serious side effects, which is why our acne dermatologist, Dr. Fatteh works with you to determine if this is the best option for your needs.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!
I would definitely recommend Safe Health PC. I got my Botox treatment done from this clinic and it was perfect. Dr. Fatteh gave me all the information regarding the procedure. The procedure was a success and the results were amazing. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
