An oily face is due to the dysfunction of the sebaceous glands of the skin and expansion of the pore (duct), through which, their content (which is called sebum), is channeled into the skin surface. It is caused by sebum overproduction, which results in blocking this pore. The condition is aggravated by a microbe that is called propionic bacterium of acne, which can cause the inflammation. These glands are mostly on the face, back, and chest, where increased oily skin is observed. Vacuum cleansing is an excellent treatment to prevent oily skin, as well as inflammatory acne, especially with the simultaneous use of sebo-regulating peelings.
It presents increased oiliness, dilated pores, non-smooth look, with pimples (closed comedones) and black spots (open comedones).
It occurs with the development of papules (spots with a vivid red color) or pustules (red spots that are usually accompanied by pus).
• Heredity, hormonal activity, stress
• Accumulation of dead cells of the skin
• Bacteria in the pores
• Skin irritation can cause inflammation
• Use of anabolic steroids, drugs containing halogens, lithium, or androgens, or exposure to high chlorine levels.
Acne is a disease with a chronic course, which requires continuous monitoring and treatment adjustment. Depending on the clinical appearance, the level of severity of acne is determined, and each case is treated differently. It should be noted that an early treatment of adult acne is very important, because it prevents the formation of scars.
Indicated treatments are the following:
• Topical Medication locally
• Systemic medication (pills)
• Combined with treatments at the Dermatologist’s office (peelings, microdermabrasion, etc.)
