If your looking to get rid of your problem acne fast, it isn’t hard to find a treatment that is perfect for you. There are many choices that you can try. Some are cheap, some are expensive. Some are technical, some are easy. Helping you find the right choice is what we are here for.
You need to remember that not all cases of acne are created equal, and neither are the treatments to treat problem acne. Although all acne has it’s basis in the same process; hormonal fluctuations that stimulate over-production of oil. Not all cases of acne is equally severe and not all will respond to the same types of treatments.
Most cases of acne fit within one of three main categories:
Comedonal acne. This is the the most common kind acne. It involves the formation of blackheads and whiteheads on the skin, and most prominently on the face. It forms because overproduction of skin oil called sebum, along with old skin cells, block the opening pores of the skin. Comedonal acne appears most often on the forehead, nose, and chin.
Inflammatory acne. This form of acne occurs when the area just under the blemish (the blackhead or whitehead) becomes red and inflamed. This type of acne is much more noticable, due to the reddening of the skin.
Cystic acne. The most severe form of acne, cystic acne develops as the result of an actual infection in the area of the outbreak. Cystic acne can be genetic and run in families. It can result in often very painful swellings, and if not treated properly, can result in disfiguring, permanent scarringof the skin.
The type of treatments that are the best solution for acne will depend on both on the kind of acne you have, and the additional factors that may trigger acne outbreaks.
