CONCERN & CONDITIONS

Acne

Acne, a common skin condition that affects many of us at some point, goes beyond mere spots, oily skin, and discomfort. At Dr. Rasha Clinic, we comprehend the profound impact of acne on both your skin and self-esteem.

This widespread skin concern predominantly appears on the face (affecting nearly everyone with acne), back (in over half of cases), and chest (observed in around 15% of instances). Acne takes various forms, and we are here to empower you with the knowledge and solutions to regain clear, healthy skin.

Discover the Six Primary Forms of Acne:

  • Blackheads: These are small black or yellowish bumps, not due to dirt but rather pigmentation from the hair follicle’s inner lining.
  • Whiteheads: Similar to blackheads but sometimes firmer and more stubborn.
  • Papules: Small, tender, and occasionally sore red bumps.
  • Pustules: Resembling papules but featuring a white center caused by pus buildup.
  • Nodules: These are large, painful lumps that develop beneath the skin’s surface.
  • Cysts: The most severe form of acne, these are pus-filled lumps that can lead to permanent scarring.

What Causes Acne?

Acne, often associated with hormonal changes during puberty, doesn’t discriminate by age. It’s important to recognize that acne is not limited to the teenage years. Hormonal fluctuations trigger an overproduction of sebum, the skin’s natural oil. This, in turn, encourages P. acnes, a typically harmless skin bacterium, to become aggressive, resulting in inflammation and pus.

Hormones also thicken the inner lining of hair follicles, leading to pore blockages. It’s not just a hereditary issue; genetics can play a role, but hormonal fluctuations like those during the menstrual cycle or pregnancy can also spark acne in women.

Acne affects a wide range of individuals, with approximately 80% of people aged 11 to 30 experiencing it. Girls aged 14 to 17 and boys aged 16 to 19 are commonly affected.

Even though acne often diminishes with age, adult acne persists. Around 5% of women and 1% of men continue to experience it beyond their mid-twenties.

At Dr. Rasha Clinic, regardless of your age or gender, we offer tailored solutions to address your acne concerns.

How To Tackle Acne?

There are proactive steps you can take at home to prevent breakouts and minimize acne:

  • Gentle Cleansing: Avoid excessive washing, as it can irritate your skin. Opt for a mild soap or cleanser with lukewarm water.
  • Hands Off: Resist the urge to “clean out” blackheads or squeeze spots, as this can exacerbate the condition and lead to scarring.
  • Skin-Friendly Makeup: Choose water-based, non-comedogenic products and remember to remove makeup before bedtime.
  • Hydration: Combat dry skin with a fragrance-free, water-based moisturizer. 
  • Exercise and Hygiene: While exercise is great for boosting mood and self-esteem, make sure to shower promptly afterward to prevent sweat-related irritation.
  • Hair Care: Regular hair washing and keeping hair away from your face can help prevent acne.

However, if you find yourself dealing with persistent breakouts or acne that you feel requires professional care, book a skin consultation with our practitioners today to see how we can provide the necessary treatment. While acne may not have a cure, it can be effectively managed with treatments available at Dr. Rasha Clinic. Our experienced team is here to guide you towards clearer, healthier skin.
