Acne Treatment

Acne vulgaris (AV) is a condition of the oil glands that can cause any one or a mix of the following –

  1. Open and closed comedones(blackheads and whiteheads)

  2. inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules, and nodules)

  3. Varying degrees of scarring

The causes of Acne Vulgaris are complicated. Four key pathogenic processes lead to the formation of acne

  1. Alteration of keratinization around follicles that leads to comedones

  2. Increased and altered oil production under hormone (mainly androgen) control

  3. Infection of the follicles by Propionibacterium acnes

  4. Complex inflammatory mechanisms

Treatment of Acne Vulgaris should target all four pathogenic mechanisms.
