Acne is a common skin condition characterized by the appearance of blackheads, pimples and inflamed pustules.
How does acne develop?
Acne develops from a chain reaction. If the sebaceous glands in the skin produce excessive amounts of sebum and this mixes with dead skin cells, the pores become clogged. This blockage leads to the formation of blackheads, which can then become inflamed, resulting in red pimples, pustules and nodules on the skin.
What are the causes of excessive sebum production?
One of the main causes is excessive production of sebum in the sebaceous glands of the skin due to hormonal changes. Hormones such as androgens, insulin and cortisol may also play a role in its development. External factors such as stress, unhealthy diet, pollution and the use of oily skin care products can also promote it.
How does acne occur?
Acne causes various symptoms on the skin, including blackheads (open or closed), red pimples, pustules and nodules. These can be painful and itchy, and in severe cases can cause scarring. Acne usually occurs on the face, back or chest, where most sebaceous glands are located. Symptoms can vary depending on the severity and type.
How can the clinical picture be treated?
Antimicrobial and keratolytic treatments are among the topical medications commonly used to treat acne. Antimicrobial medications such as benzoyl peroxide and antibiotics work against bacteria that cause it, while keratolytic medications such as salicylic acid and azelaic acid help remove dead skin cells and open clogged pores, which can lead to a reduction in symptoms.
The HYPOGEN CARE Acne Acute Care Set was developed for treatment. It provides lasting relief from the symptoms and supplies the skin with the right care.
In the case of acute complaints, the wound lotion should be applied to the skin - preferably several times a day. It provides the skin with sufficient moisture so that it does not become taut.
For cleaning the skin, the wash lotion is very suitable. The mild and hypoallergenic formula also provides the skin with sufficient moisture.
Care with the Acne Acute Care Set can also be carried out alongside medication without any problems.
