Skin Care is Essential: exploring ways to fight skin problems
Skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body which requires daily care. It is prone to all kinds of problems. One must remember that there is a reason as to why so many products are launched every now and then. Cleansers and Toners, Moisturizers, Anti- Ageing creams, Serums, Exfoliators and Masks, Natural oils, for instance, should be part of one’s daily cosmetic and face care toolkit.
Goodbye to Acne Scars: Acne scars commonly appear on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and sometimes upper arms. The scars might take a permanent root to your body too! The easiest symptoms of acne scars are located in certain forms. There are the dark or yellowish bumps called the blackheads and something quite similar except that they do not clear away when pinched, are the whiteheads. Then you have the soft, bruised red bumps called Papules. Pustules are the worse, as it accumulates all the pus in its white tipped centre. Cysts, which resemble boils, are also pus filled bumps, representing the most severe symptom of acne. It might lead to permanent scarring too.
The Process involved: In mild cases of acne, Blu-U or Photodynamic Therapy treatment which involves spending about 15 minutes close to the sunlight, once or twice every week works well. A non-laser, visible blue light device is used in this process to do away with the bacteria accrued in the oil glands.
In severe cases, levulan (Aminolevulinic acid) is applied to the acne prone areas and left for an hour before the Blu-U treatment begins. Acne can be controlled but is not always totally curable. It must be stressed that on an average it takes at-least about 6-8 weeks for initial results to show. One must follow some protocol while the treatment is in progress- daily use of gentle cleansers- , using only non comedogenic costemics, and no plucking at the whiteheads or blackheads. For speedy recovery with acne scars, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and pulsed light work best.
