Acne Treatment in Greater Kailash

DermoRita Skin Clinic is the trusted choice for safe and effective acne treatment in Greater Kailash.
Acne is one of the most common aesthetic concerns, a disorder of oil glands and hair follicles, resulting from the plugging of skin pores or hair follicles with dead skin cells, extra sebum, dirt, and bacteria (in some cases). It can break out anywhere on the skin in different forms. Some may experience mild acne with only occasional outbreaks, while others have more severe acne with the majority of their face and body covered. Mostly, it appears on the face, neck, shoulders, back, and chest. “People of any age, race, or gender can have acne. However, most acne-affected people are teenagers and young adults, especially females”, shares Dr. Sarita Sanke, a leading acne doctor practising at DermoRita Skin Clinic. Get in touch with Dr. Sarita Sanke for advanced acne treatment in Greater Kailash.

Benefits of Acne Treatment

Severe acne can leave behind permanent scars on the skin if ignored. Furthermore, acne can affect appearance and make one feel very conscious. It can lower one’s esteem and confidence. Sometimes, one would stop socialising and experience more emotional issues over time. By clear acne-affected skin, acne scars, and poor aesthetics can be avoided.

Types and Symptoms of Acne

Broadly, there are two kinds of acne: Non-inflammatory and Inflammatory.

A basic/non-inflammatory acne lesion is called a comedone. There are two kinds of comedones:

  • Open and Closed.Open comedones/ Blackheads- These are the acne that opens at the skin surface and appears dark/ black after contact with oxygen in the air. 
  • Closed comedones/ Whiteheads- These are the bumps that remain beneath the superficial skin as flesh-coloured. As they appear closed on the top of the skin, they appear white.

 Inflammatory acne lesions are caused by bacterial growth in the pores clogged with dead skin cells, sebum, and dirt. They are more likely to leave scars. There are four kinds of inflammatory acne lesions:

  • Papules- These are small, tender, red pimples. They can give the skin a rough, uneven texture.
  • Pustules- These are the pus-filled pimples that appear white on top and red at the base of the lesion.
  • Nodules- These are large, hard, painful lumps that develop underneath the skin surface.
  • Cysts- These are the pus-filled nodules, the most severe type of acne leaving scars.

With acne breakouts, an individual might experience-

  • Skin discoloration including dark spots/patches and redness
  • Inflammation
  • Pain or tender feeling upon touching.

Causes and Risk factors of Acne

Our skin is covered with several tiny pores that open to hair follicles. The hair follicles have the hair and sebaceous (oil) glands. The oil glands release sebum (natural oil) that travels up the hair, out of the skin pores, and onto the skin surface to keep the skin moisturised and soft. If the natural oils are present in excess, this contributes to acne breakouts.

Acne might occur when the skin pores get clogged with a build-up of extra oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and/or bacteria. It often runs in the family; the condition is inheritable. A spike in hormone levels during puberty or other phases in the life of a woman may be blamed for acne breakouts. The hormones involved in acne pathogenesis include androgens, progesterone, oestro-gen, insu-lin and ins-ulin-like growth factor 1, melano-cortins, growth hormones, glucoc-orticoids, CRH, and adren-ocortic-otropic hormone.

Some of the risk factors that are recognized to contribute to or worsen acne include:

  • High physical or emotional stress
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Poor sleep schedule
  • Intake of certain medications including anticonvulsants, lithium-based drugs, steroids, and some kinds of hormonal birth control pills
  • Use of comedogenic skincare products or makeup
  • Excess oil or grease on the skin.

Dermatologists at DermoRita Skin Clinic can determine the underlying causes of acne. With advanced acne treatment in Greater Kailash, all these issues can be managed effectively. Visit the clinic for more details!

How Can Acne be Treated?

The acne treatment option is decided based on the severity of the condition and the patient’s age and general health.

  • For mild acne - There are many over-the-counter medicated creams, cleansers, and spot treatments. These contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
  • For moderate acne - If acne breakouts are persistent even after using pharmacy acne drugs for several weeks, getting treated by a dermatologist would be an ideal solution. A dermatologist recommends topicals containing prescription-strength ben-zoyl peroxide, retin-oids like ret-inol, and/or antibiotics. For some patients, oral prescription antibiotics or hormonal birth control help manage acne.
  • For severe acne - Dr. Sarita Sanke recommends acne treatment that may combine one or more of the following: benzoyl peroxide, oral antibiotics, topical antibiotics, and topical reti-noids. For severe kinds of acne and to prevent acne scars, she recommends medical procedures that work by reducing sebum production and removing damaged skin. Here are some of the medical treatments for acne:
  •  Chemical peel - This is a chemical exfoliation treatment wherein the dermatologist applies an acid solution to the skin with acne, blemishes, or acne-prone skin to remove the top skin layers and reveal clear, fresh, smooth skin from underneath. The acid solution helps reduce sebum production by sebaceous glands. Best peels for acne treatment include glycolic acid and salicylic acid. Multiple sessions are required to get the desired clear skin.
  • Carbon laser peel - In this laser skin resurfacing therapy, firstly the skin to be treated is layered with liquid charcoal that is left to dry. The activated carbon in carbon cream adsorbs the skin impurities, excess sebum, and dead skin cells as it dries. Next, pulses of laser light are used to heat and destroy the carbon into smaller particles. These particles along with their adsorbed materials are later removed from the skin with the help of immune cells. Simultaneously, the laser generates heat that kills the acne-causing bacteria while encouraging fresh collagen synthesis deep into the skin. All this results in clear skin.
  • Cortisone injections - This acne treatment can help reduce inflammation of inflamed acne lesions and encourage its healing. It is usually recommended along with other severe acne treatments.
