 What Causes Acne? 
Acne is the long-term condition of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and cysts generally on the face, chest and back and can affect individuals of all ages.  Acne is usually accompanied by oily skin, blemishes, hyperpigmentation and scarring. 
The main causes of acne are hormonal imbalance, clogged pores, bacteria, dead skin cells and overproduction of sebum. Dead skin, sebum and bacteria get trapped inside pores and around hair follicles forming a plug. If this plugged pore or follicle becomes infected, the area becomes inflamed - becoming a white head,  pustule or cyst. Factors such as hormones, diet and some medications can aggravate acne. 

How is Acne Treated? 

Acne is typically treated with topicals such as retinoids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, alpha hydroxy acids and mandelic acid or topical antibiotics. 

Most topical acne products increase cell turnover, target surface bacteria, reduce inflammation and decrease oil production in order to clear the complexion. Benzoyl peroxide is a common topical acne treatment. Benzoyl Peroxide kills surface bacteria that can cause acne and may help prevent new acne from forming. Retinoids, derived from vitamin A, unplugs clogged pores. Retinoids are typically used alongside another treatment like benzoyl peroxide. The retinoid opens the pore and allows the other treatment to penetrate. Salicylic acid unclogs pores by exfoliation and reduces oil and inflammation. Azelaic acid also kills surface bacteria, decreases the production of keratin - which promotes bacteria growth, and reduces inflammation.

How Is Severe Acne Treated

Depending on the severity or grade of the acne, oral treatments may be needed. A dermatologist may prescribe antibiotics such as tetracycline, minocycline. Accutane may also be prescribed, but is reserved as a last resort for extremely severe acne that doesn't respond to other types of oral medicines. 

Accutane does come with very serious side effects such as liver damage and some reported issues of migraines and other side effects.

Are Lasers Effective on Acne

Lasers may also aid in the treatment of acne and work by heating up compounds called porphyrins, which live inside acne bacteria. When the lasers excite the porphyrins, the porphyrins damage the bacteria wall, effectively killing the bacteria which results in the clearing of acne. Laser treatment also reduce sebum which reduces oiliness in the skin. Laser treatments will also reduce pores size and pitted acne scars due to the collagen building benefits of the laser. Most Acne patients may require 3 laser treatments . Up to 6 laser treatments may be required for those with severe acne or severe scarring from cystic acne. Over just a few weeks, laser can provide significant improvement. Usually laser treatment delivers clearing of acne and inflammation three times faster than common antibiotics and topical acne treatments alone. Laser genesis in combination with medical grade products has proven to work very well for acne.
