Acne is one of the most common problems seen in teenagers and adults the world over. Acne is generally caused by overactive oil glands that get blocked. Acne is a term used for plugged pores (whiteheads and blackheads), deeper lumps (nodules or cysts) and pimples that occur on the face, chest, back, upper arms and even shoulders.
Most commonly, acne refers to blocked pores that turn into whiteheads and blackheads. Often, blackheads appear when pores are partially blocked, allowing some of the trapped bacteria, sebum (oil), and dead skin cells to drain slowly to the surface.
Whilst personal hygiene is important, washing regularly is not enough to overcome acne. The problem is to do with the oil the skin produces, rather than the surface grime picked up over the course of a day.
Whilst there are many different treatments available to address acne problems, some prove to be much more effective then others. Laser acne treatment is the best available treatment to cure acne. The laser beam can accurately and effectively eliminate the problem but targeting the overactive oil glands and removing scarred skin, allowing your skin to breathe and giving you a flawlessly clear complexion.
