Taking good care of yourself involves a lot of steps. Keeping an eye on your routine, health, food habits and balancing work and life can become a bit of a hassle. Glowing and radiant skin stands for soft and smooth skin without any infection. But owing to hormonal changes, submissive diet, etc. acne can develop on your body. A healthy, soft and smooth skin is not just your entitlement but another stepping stone in your success story.
Acne is a skin infection that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. This infection makes the skin swollen and red making it look apparent.
Acne often causes blackheads or pimples, whiteheads and can appear anywhere from the face, forehead, chest to upper back and shoulders. The pimples and bumps heal very slowly and when one begins to go away another one crops up. Acne can cause scarring and acne pustules can be extremely painful and sensitive. Statistics show that acne affects 3 in every 4 people aged between 11 to 30 years. More than 10 million cases of acne are reported in India every year. Though it is common in teenagers it can affect people of all ages.

The key to the successful treatment of acne is to identify which type of acne a person is suffering. Acne can be categorized into inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Further, it can be classified into the following subtypes:
Blackheads (open comedones) When a pore is clogged by sebum and dead skin cells blackheads occur.
Whiteheads (closed comedones) It is similar to blackheads but in this, the top of the pore closes up leading to a small bump coming from the skin
Papules These occur when the walls surrounding the pores break down from inflammation. The skin is usually pink around the pores.
Pustules They are similar to papules. The only difference is that pustules are filled with pus.
Nodules When clogged and swollen pores endure further irritation and grow larger nodules occur. These, generally, occur deep underneath the skin.
Cysts When pores are clogged by a combination of sebum, bacteria and dead cells, cysts can occur. They occur deep within the skin, much deeper than nodules.
La Midas Recommendations
Every individual is unique and so is his acne. The best way to find the most suitable and effective procedure for your acne is to discuss it with a qualified, specialized, and professional team like the one at La Midas. Our team of experts can suggest a variety of procedures to treat acne.
Dermabrasion It removes the top layers of your skin with a rotating brush and would be best for treating acne scarring as opposed to a treatment for acne. Microdermabrasion is, however, a milder treatment that helps remove dead skin cells.
Chemical Peel A chemical peel removes the top layers of your skin. That skin peels off to reveal less damaged skin underneath. Chemical peels can be used to improve mild acne scarring
Therapy Different therapies can be used to treat acne. Most of them use medication and a special type of light or laser to reduce oil production and bacteria. Other lasers are also used to help improve acne or scarring.
Extraction of whiteheads and blackheads Experts may use special tools to gently remove whiteheads and blackheads. Those whiteheads and blackheads that have not cleared up with medications are removed in this process.
Steroid injection Cystic and nodular types of inflammatory acne can be treated by injecting a steroid drug directly into them. This therapy results in rapid relief and decreased pain. However, there may be a little thinning in the treated area.
