Based on research, acne is one of the most common skin diseases, that affects up to 85% of the population aged 12-44.
Acne is a chronic disease of the skin accompanied by the formation of pimples in sebaceous areas. Acne is caused by blockage of pores, increased production of sebum and inflammation of hyperplastic sebaceous glands. It is characterized by comedones, papules, pustules, cysts, and acne on the skin. Acne occurs as a result of a combination of several factors and is caused by the weakening of the skin's immune system. Four main factors cause acne: glandular hyperplasia, androgens, keratinization disorder, bacteria and inflammation.
Factors for weakening the skin's immune system are:
hormonal conditions (hormonal disorders), the use of inappropriate products, stress, hot and humid climate, use of certain drugs, active ingredients in cosmetic products.
Modern guidelines for treating acne include:
1. Basic therapy
2. Additional therapy
3. Supportive therapy
Because cosmetic procedures are officially classified as maintenance treatments, then cosmetologists carry out supportive and preventive treatments to restore skin-specific acid-base balance. In acne and post-acne care, it is important not only to treat the disease and its consequences, but also to develop a strategy to support skin care even after the end of the treatment.
At the I Am Beautiful 2019 seminar dr. Tatiana Muhina will talk about various forms of acne, their causes, young and adult acne and post-treatment options, and the need for further procedures in the cosmetic cabinet.
