Acne occurs most often on the face, chest, back and shoulders.  It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.  There are various treatments for acne.  The type of treatment depends on the type of acne that you are prone to:

Nonimflammatory Acne-

Commonly known as whiteheads and blackheads, this type of comedonal acne occurs when the openings of hair follicles become clogged, oil, dead skin cells and occasionally bacteria.  Open comedones are called blackheads.  They occur when the comedone is open at the surface of the skin.  Whiteheads occur when the comedones are closed.  These can become raised and can be skin-colored or white.

Inflammatory leisons

  1. Papules look like small raised bumps.  These acne lesions signal inflammation or infection in the hair follicle.
  2. Pustules are red bumps with pus at the tip.  These bumps tend to be tender.
  3. Nodules are solid painful bumps beneath the surface of the skin.  These form when secretions deep within the follicle build up beneath the skin.
  4. Cysts are painful infections filled with pus.  Left untreated, these lesions can cause scars.

Treatment- Fraxel New York

There are various types of treatment for acne.  Your doctor may recommend a combination of topical creams, washes, pills or lasers.  The Vbeam laser can be used to reduce redness and the Fraxel Re:Store or Fraxel Re:Pair lasers can be used to resurface the skin to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
