There are many different types of acne and there are many different causes. In truth, acne is a multi-factorial problem and without treating it using multiple modalities it will not be successful long term
Root Cause of Acne:
1. Oil production
2. Bacteria growth (P.Acnes) causing an infection and inflammatory reaction
3. Keratinized layer on the top of the skin traps the bacteria and the oil
4. Scarring and hyperpigmentation
The above can be affected by hormones, environment, cosmetics, food allergies or sensitivities, stress (as it changes the hormones), medications.
