Acne is not just a teenage problem. This disease occurs in 40% of adults, especially prolonged acne can occur in women. About a third of adult women suffer from acne, especially relapses that occur at certain periods of the cycle. Sometimes rashes occur even in children.
Pharmaceutical cosmetics have a bacteriostatic effect on the epidermis, slowing down the rate of development of propionoid bacteria, which contribute to the development of new blemishes, drying existing rashes and reducing the production of sebum. The composition of these funds includes active ingredients in high concentrations, which allows you to comprehensively cope with the problem of skin rashes.
To treat acne in adulthood caused by a hormonal imbalance in the body, a dermatologist prescribes appropriate tests and hormonal therapy.
With regular use, derivatives of vitamin A are aimed at normalizing the cellular regeneration of the skin, effectively fighting acne and post-acne (scars and hyperpigmentation), unifying and lightening the skin tone, accelerating the exfoliation of dead skin cells.
Light (radiation) acne treatment works on problem areas of the skin with an intense stream of light, while reducing sebum production. The procedure also improves blood circulation in the sebaceous glands, which contributes to the repair processes.
How quickly you get rid of acne directly depends on how quickly you start a comprehensive approach to treatment. Discipline in the diet and daily hygiene is very important, as well as strict adherence to the recommendations of a dermatologist on the use of medicines and cosmetics for skin care.
It is impossible to unequivocally answer the question of how long to treat acne. Even if acne appears quickly and suddenly, it takes time for the skin to start responding to treatment. If everything is done correctly, then positive dynamics can be observed within a month. Mild acne (first and second degree) as a rule does not require medical treatment and in most cases the disease can clear up within 6-12 weeks.
If you relax and instead of being treated as per the dermatologist’s recommendation, simply squeezing your acne or masking it with cosmetics, the problem may persist for months. With moderate and severe acne (3rd and 4th degree), complex therapy and drug therapy are required, which at this stage of the disease can last up to a year.
Advanced stages of acne rarely go unnoticed. According to recent studies, 95% of people after improper treatment of acne develop post-acne – multi-colored stagnant spots on the skin, scars and bumps in the most inflamed areas.
This means that after the appearance of acne, the skin can lose its healthy, beautiful appearance due to the defects that have appeared:enlarged pores
Red, blue and even purple traces, Scars and bumps, sebaceous cysts ,Whiteheads ,brown spots ,Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation ,Sensitive ,dry skin ,skin peeling.
The severity of the resulting complications depends on how severely the skin is affected. So, for example, the appearance of hyperpigmentation indicates an infection of the skin at the epidermal level. Scars and skin anomalies are caused by damage to the layers of skin tissue.
