Hormonal changes, genetics and stress can cause your sebaceous glands to work overtime.
Pimples develop when pores get plugged up by dead skin cells and bacteria multiply within the clogged pore. Your skin care regimen should consist of oil-free, noncomedogenic products that won’t block your pores, as well as facial cleansers that contain salicylic acid to remove dead cells.Often the most effective way to treat acne and oiliness is through a combination of retinoids, antibiotics, peels and microdermabrasion. Retinoids work well because they clean up pores deeply. A topical or oral antibiotic can destroy the bacteria that causes breakouts. Microdermabrasion, which exfoliates the skin’s surface, and chemical peels, which remove the top layer of skin, can reduce acne as well. The next level of treatment include laser treatment, which kills the bacteria behind the pimples, improving the appearance of mild to moderate inflammatory acne.. At least three to four sessions of laser are needed. In cases of severe acne, the oral medication Accutane (a derivative of vitamin A) is prescribed. However, Accutene presents the potential for serious side effects and concerns, so it is imperative to have an in-depth conversation with your dermatologist if you are considering this option.
