Common acne symptoms

Acne can appear anywhere on the body, but is mostly found on the face, back, and shoulders. It is characterized by several common symptoms. These include:

  • Pimples
  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Cystic pimples
  • Bumps
  • Skin redness

Address acne head-on

Acne is a very common issue for many people, and it’s also not uncommon for individuals to require stronger treatment than what a drugstore can provide. If you’re having acne problems that make you self-conscious and you’re seeking acne treatment in Buckeye, Surprise, or the surrounding areas, we invite you to come in for a consultation so that we can discuss your options and get you on your way to clearer, healthier skin. Contact Regency Specialties for more information on some of the best acne treatments Phoenix has to offer. 

What causes acne to develop?

Acne can be caused by different factors, and therefore often requires different types of treatment. No matter what may be causing your acne breakouts, Regency Specialties can help. The most common causes of acne include:

Certain medications: Corticosteroids, lithium, birth control with progesterone, testosterone, anticonvulsants, androgenic steroids, DHEA, barbiturates, and medicines that include bromides or iodides can cause acne or worsen it. 

Excess sebum production: Sebum is a naturally occurring substance within the body that lubricates our skin and hair. The production of sebum is boosted during adolescence with hormonal changes, which often leads to breakouts. 

Dead skin: Dead skin is a trigger for acne, and can accumulate as a result of junk food, stress, and not having a good skin care regimen.

Beauty products: Hair and skin products, as well as makeup, can clog pores and cause breakouts. 

Clogged pores: When the pores become clogged with debris such as oil, bacteria, dirt, and dead skin, it often causes acne breakouts.

Blocked hair follicles: When hair follicles get blocked up by skin cells and sebum, it can create a follicular plug and inflammation.

Propionibacterium acnes: This is bacteria that lives on the skin and uses sebum for energy. When it overgrows, its presence in the pores triggers an immunity response that causes inflammation, and acne breakouts then often occur. 

Genetics: The chances of you having problems with acne are much higher if one (or both) of your parents dealt with acne. This is because you may have inherited how their body deals with oil secretion.
