How can acne occur?

Acne is a skin disease and is medically known as acne.The amount of sebum secreted is large, and the sebum cannot be completely excreted and clogs the pores, causing the sebum and unnecessary dead skin to mix and form into keratin plugs.Resident bacteria such as acne bacteria grow there, causing inflammation and acne.

When the body is weak, the protective instinct causes the dead skin to thicken, blocking the pores and making it impossible to secrete sebum.

As sebum that cannot be secreted increases rapidly, acne bacteria also increases around the pores, causing inflammation.

causes of acne

The main causes of acne are clogged pores and excessive sebum secretion.They are caused by various factors such as stress, lifestyle, lack of sleep, etc.If left untreated, the inflammation and suppuration will worsen and cause acne scars, so be sure to take care of it early.

Acne types

  • T zone

    adolescent acne


    During puberty, hormone secretion increases, and excess sebum secretes clogs pores, allowing the bacteria that lives on the skin, Propionibacterium acnes, to proliferate.Symptoms tend to appear in the T-zone (the T-shaped area from the forehead to the nose) where sebum secretion is particularly high.

  • Around the mouth and chin

    adult acne


    Adult acne is caused by the burden accumulated in the body that affects the skin's metabolism.It is caused by a complex interplay of various factors, including dryness, poor lifestyle habits due to lack of sleep and unbalanced eating habits, and hormonal imbalance due to stress.It can occur all year round regardless of the season, and the symptoms tend to appear on the face around the mouth and chin, and are difficult to cure.

    effective treatment

  • non-inflammatory acne

    White acne

    early stage white acne

    This is the early stage of acne.This is a condition in which dead skin cells accumulate, blocking pores and causing sebum to accumulate.Since this is the early stage of acne, proper treatment can prevent the symptoms from worsening.

    Black acne

    Corner plugs oxidize and turn into blackheads

    When air comes into contact with the sebum clogged in the pores, the keratin plugs oxidize and turn into blackheads.This oxidized blackhead darkens the area around the pores and becomes "blackheads."

  • inflammatory acne

    Red acne

    Acne worsens and becomes inflamed, resulting in red pimples

    Whiteheads and blackheads become worse, and acne bacteria grows due to dirt and sebum clogged in the pores, causing inflammation.It can damage tissues and cause acne scars.

    yellow acne

    For yellow acne, which is the most aggravated condition due to accumulation of pus.

    This is the most severe form of acne.Inflammation reaches the dermis and pus accumulates in the pores.Even if acne completely heals, it tends to remain as acne scars or pigmentation.Get treatment as early as possible.

Causes of acne scars

Simply put, the cause of acne scars is damage to the deeper layers of the skin.When acne becomes inflamed and suppurated, it can affect the dermis layer deep within the skin.This layer, called the dermis layer, has the ability to create new cells, so if this layer is damaged, new cells cannot be created to regenerate the epidermis, leaving damaged, old skin behind.

When acne worsens and damages the dermal layer, cells cannot regenerate, resulting in acne scars.

Types of acne scars and treatments

  • Inflammation from acne remains inside

    Acne scars with redness


    The redness of acne scars is caused by the inflammation of the acne remaining inside the skin.As the inflammation subsides over time, the redness will also disappear over time.
    The speed at which redness disappears varies depending on your constitution and skin type; in some cases it will disappear within a few weeks, while in other cases it may take several years.

    effective treatment

  • Melanin pigment is deposited on the epidermis

    Acne scars with pigmentation


    Acne scar pigmentation is a brown stain that occurs when melanin pigment accumulates (deposits) in the epidermis.This melanin pigment is produced when melanocytes located in the basal layer of the epidermis are stimulated by acne inflammation.Once the melanin pigment has fallen into the dermis, it is difficult to expect natural healing.

    effective treatment

  • Uneven craters caused by repeated acne

    Acne scars with uneven surfaces(crater)


    As a result of repeated acne occurrences and symptoms progressing from red acne to suppurative acne, the scars caused by the acne reach the dermis and cause complex destruction of the dermal tissue, resulting in scars.As the inflammation subsides, there are areas where the dermis has been repaired and areas where it has not, resulting in the skin surface becoming uneven rather than flat, creating a crater.If the deep layers of the dermal tissue are damaged in a complex way, it will be extremely difficult to restore the skin to its original condition.Just like crushing it with your fingernails or using incorrect skin care, you can cause craters to form if you damage the deep layers of your skin.
