Acne is a skin condition caused by blockage of the follicular canals of the skin. This blockage traps the sebum produced resulting in inflammation of the skin. A P. Acnes bacteria naturally present in the skin infects inflammation causing acne. There are different acne treatments depending on the type of acne.
For mild to moderate acne, antibacterials such as benzoyl peroxide, triclosan and chlorhexidine gluconate are sufficient. Skin scrubs such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid are also used. Anti-bacterials work by killing bacteria in acne. Skin exfoliators work by opening the pores of the skin. Results are seen after 2 weeks and complete relief may take 4 to 6 weeks.
For severe acne, antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracycline are usually used in combination with benzoyl peroxide. Sometimes retinoids such as tretinoin, adapalin, retinol and isotretinoin are also used. For very severe acne like isotretinoin cystic acne is the only cure.
The last and the best way to get rid of acne is phototherapy (light acne treatment). In the treatment of acne light, a certain wavelength of light, usually intense blue light or red light, is used to irradiate the affected area. Light generates free radicals in the porphyrins of the bacteria. When free radicals increase beyond a critical concentration, bacteria die. If the affected area is pretreated with delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), the results of acne treatment are further improved. This is because ALA increases porphyrin levels in bacteria. Acne treatment is considered the best acne treatment because it gives high results, has no side effects and the chances of bacterial resistance is low. The treatment with acne lasts about 2 to 3 months.
All acne treatments above are given in conjunction with dietary supplements prescribed as tuns. Acuzine is composed of antioxidants, vitamins E and C, hydrolyzed collagen, ALA, DMAE, L-ascorbic acid, coenzyme Q-10, vitamin D, Aloe vera, Bioperine, etc. The presence of these ingredients helps the early recovery of the skin. provides essential vitamins, enzymes to rebuild the skin.
