Acne Products to Treat Acne
Very few people are there who could spend their life without being bothered by the hideous visage of acne pimples. Fortunately in this modern age medical science has made radical improvements to provide us with numerous acne products which are not only effective in wiping out those lesions but also capable to thwart any further breakouts.
Over the Counter Acne Cures
There are some over the counter acne products that work well. The two best for most people are benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid.
Benzoyl peroxide destroys acne causing bacteria located deep in the pores. It has been made so available to the public in products like Proactive Acne Treatment that it is now the most common acne product on the internet.
Salicylic acid works by removing the top layers of dead skin cells. This helps the skin renew itself quickly, and reduces the chance for pore blockage and a 2nd acne breakout. The most popular product in this OTC category is Proactiv Solution sold by Guthy Renker!.
We have oil producing sebaceous glands embedded deep under the epidermal layer of our skin. These are connected to the hair follicles through narrow pilosebaceous canals. Sebaceous glands produce sebum or body oil which reaches our skin surface through pilosebaceous units to keep our cutaneous layer soft and smooth. At the onset of our pubertal age and in female body during premenstrual and pregnancy periods the male hormonal level abruptly increases. This on the other hand induces sebaceous glands to secrete excess sebum. Surplus body oil along with piles of dead skin cells clog up the hair follicles turning them into tiny microcomedones. This oily environment is a perfect breeding ground for skin dwelling bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, which is also known to be responsible for acne formation in human body. P. acnes immediately invade the blocked skin pores and proliferate there to cause irritation. Eventually infected and swelled hair follicular walls get ruptured to spill the accumulated rusty oily substance into adjacent tissue creating inflammation and different types of acne lesions.

As you have got the knowledge about the efficacy and mode of action of each of the key ingredients you should be able to select the product that you feel best suits your needs. But it is not an easy job. There are several other factors including your skin type, your food habits, and numerous complicated risk factors related to array of medications which need to be taken into account. And these you might not be able to decide alone unless you consult a professional dermatologist who would be able to guide you to select the perfect acne product considering all of the associated hazardous factors.
Acne scar treatment
Doctors may be able to use certain procedures to diminish scars left by acne. These include fillers, dermabrasion, intense light therapy and laser resurfacing.
* Soft tissue fillers. Collagen or fat can be injected under the skin and into scars to fill out or stretch the skin, making the scars less noticeable. Results from this acne scar treatment are temporary, so you'd need to repeat the injections periodically.
