What Is Acne?

Acne is one of the most common skin problems that is usually caused by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) as well as pus-filled growths (pustules).

Acne is a skin condition in which your skin pores become blocked by sebum, dirt and bacteria. Acne and pimples can ruin a beautiful face and require an effective acne treatment and a good skin care routine. 

Many acne treatment clinics treat pimples and acne using drugs. However, Glow & Go Pakistan offers the best skin care clinic in Lahore and Islamabad for acne treatment. Here, skin peels and red and blue light therapy are used for blemish-free skin.

Acne occurs when hair, sebum, bacteria, or simply dead skin cells clog the pores of your skin. This blockage ultimately leads to formation of blackheads, whiteheads, spots, and other types of blemishes.

What Causes Acne?

Acne forms when sebum, dead skin cells, dirt, and germs block your pores. The sebaceous glands are located within the skin pores.

These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that acts as a lubricant for your skin, keeping it hydrated. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands produce excess oil and the pores become congested.

Other factors responsible for acne are:

  • Hormonal changes or imbalances
  • Medications
  • Poor dietary choices
  • Acne is also a hereditary condition, and many people who get it have a family history of it.

What Does An Acne Treatment Involve?

Everyone is different and so is their acne condition. Depending on the severity of your acne symptoms, the Best Dermatologist in Lahore at Glow & Go will prescribe the best acne treatment plan as well as acne treatment products to help you fight acne safely and effectively.

Top Acne Treatments For You

LED Light Therapy

By destroying acne-causing bacteria that live on the skin, our blue LED Light Therapy effectively targets and improves inflammatory acne.

Acne Treatment Tablets & Medications

Acne symptoms may be addressed with over-the-counter (OTC) medicine. To destroy bacteria and remove dead skin cells, most OTC acne medications contain active ingredients such as:

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Salicylic acid
  • Sulphur
  • Resorcinol

Your doctor may prescribe oral and topical antibiotics to minimize irritation and eliminate acne-causing bacteria in more severe cases.

Microdermabrasion

A microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates and removes the dead layer of skin using a combination of strong clinical ingredients, diamond-tipped microdermabrasion, as well as vacuum suction.

Microdermabrasion treatments are a great way to keep your skin in good shape, but they’re also a great method for treating acne.

Skin Peels

  • Light chemical peels: 

These chemical peels use AHA, BHA, glycolic acids, or TCAs to buff away the skin and reduce the look of acne by removing dead skin cells while also cleaning the pores.

  • Glycolic Peels: 

These peels stop acne vulgaris from reproducing by minimising comedones and unclogging the pores of your skin. A very important reason for pimples and acne.

Systematic Treatment

At Glow & Go, our skin experts advise  ‘Systemic Therapy’ for the treatment of stubborn acne if it does not improve with regular topical treatments. It is also a great treatment if you have moderate to severe acne.

The systematic therapy involves prescription medications for acne and pimples that can either be taken orally or using injections along with topical application of acne solutions.

  • Oral antibiotics
  • Hormonal Therapy
