Acne Treatment Manchester - Perfection Cosmetic


What is Acne?

Acne can be an upsetting and frustrating problem to tackle, people often end up spending lots of money on various skin care solutions to try and fix the problem. It is caused by a blockage in the oil glands (sebaceous glands). The sebaceous glands secrete oils (sebum) to keep the skin moist. When the glands get clogged, it can lead to pimples and cysts.

Acne is very common. People of all races and ages have acne. Acne most often begins in puberty but can affect all ages. During puberty hormones increase and cause sebaceous glands to make more oil.

Normally, the sebum produced travels through the hair follicles to the skin. However, skin cells can plug the follicles. This can block the sebum. When follicles become plugged, skin bacteria begin to grow inside the follicles. Inflammation and pimples then develop.
