About Acne, Acne Pimples and Dermatologist Solutions to help control and get rid of Acne in Syracuse and Central New York (CNY)
The skin care staff at SkinLaze helps teens and adults alike with acne and associated skincare on a daily basis. Acne is a very common inflammatory skin condition characterized by eruptions (pimples or “zits”) around hair follicles.
Teenagers and Acne
3 out of 4 teenagers have acne to some extent. Dermatologists and skin care experts believe that most teenage acne/ pimples is probably caused by hormonal changes that stimulate the sebaceous (oil producing) skin glands. Other causes of acne include menstrual periods, pregnancy, birth control pills, or stress.
Adults and Acne
While acne is most common in teenagers, many adults in the Syracuse and Central NY area struggle with acne as well. Suffering from pimples and acne breakouts usually begins at puberty and may continue for many years, even a lifetime.
What Causes Acne and Pimples?
Acne is caused when glands within the pores of the skin become plugged, because oil and skin cells accumulate faster than they can exit. The plug causes the hair follicle to bulge (whiteheads), and the top of the plug may appear dark (blackheads). If the plug causes the wall of the follicle to rupture, the oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria found normally on the surface of the skin can enter the skin and form small infected areas called pustules (also known as pimples or zits). If these infected areas are deep in the skin, they may enlarge to form firm, painful, pus-filled cysts.
