Acne Treatment in Hyderabad

Acne treatment is one of the most common skin conditions that many people experience. Acne occurs when the skin pores get blocked due to several reasons. The blockages cause pimples, whiteheads, blackheads etc. Acne is most commonly seen in teenagers, but can occur at any age. There can be several causes for acne.

Causes of Acne

Acne is mainly caused when the pores of the skin get blocked with oil, bacteria, or dead skin. It is mainly caused by the variations in androgen hormones. The androgen hormones are more active in teenagers and young adults. When the body becomes sensitive to the hormones and when bacteria accumulates on the skin, it can cause acne.

There are certain factors that can cause acne as follows:

  • Excess production of oil by follicles
  • The build-up of bacteria in pores
  • Variations in hormone levels during periods
  • Picking at the areas of acne sores
  • Use of headgear such as hats and sports helmets
  • Using oily cosmetic products
  • Medications
  • Stress
  • Genetics¬†
  • Pollution
  • Scrubbing of skin so hardly

Diagnosis for Acne

To diagnose acne, your doctor will conduct a skin exam. He will ask you if your family have a history of acne, whether you are under stress, menstrual cycle, use of medications, etc. to know the causes and risk factors. He will also look at your skin to determine the type of acne you have. The doctor may also request for other lab tests to know if any underlying medical condition is causing acne.

Treatment for Acne

The treatment for acne is based on various factors such as type of acne, region of acne, the time when breakouts started, treatments you have already used, age and many more. The treatment for acne varies from one person to another. Even the treatment for two different people who have the same type of acne is different.

A dermatologist can help you control acne, prevent scars on the skin, and make scars less visible. If you have acne for several weeks, your doctor will prescribe medications. The medications focus on treating bacterial infection thereby reducing oil production and swelling. With medications, you may not see results in one or two months. It can even take months and years to treat your acne completely.

Your doctor will discuss with you the risks and other treatment options available for you. Dr Nikhil Reddy and Dr Raghu Ram Reddy have been working as dermatologists for several years in Hyderabad. They have offered excellent services for several people who have acne.

The most common treatments for acne include chemical peels and IPL.

Chemical peels: Chemical peels are the cosmetic treatment that is used to improve the appearance of skin and they can be applied on hands, face, and neck. It is one of the most common solutions for acne and acne scars. A chemical solution will be applied on the region to be treated. The chemical solution exfoliates the skin and it eventually peels off the skin. After that, the new skin looks smoother and it shows less wrinkles than the old skin. There are different types of chemical peels such as superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. Chemical peels not only treat acne scars but also promote collagen production.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): IPL is a non-surgical procedure used for increasing the texture and colour of your skin. It is effective at treating damage caused by acne and sun exposure. During the procedure, the dermatologist first cleans your skin with a solution. After that, intense light of a certain wavelength will be emitted on the affected skin. This promotes collagen production in that area and also fills the shallow areas of the acne scars. It is most commonly performed on the face, and it can also be used on the chest, neck, and hands to treat discolouration.
