What Is Acne? 

As a result of clogged hair follicles beneath the skin, acne is a very common and frequently occurring skin disorder. Dead skin cells and sebum, an oil that helps prevent skin from drying out, clog pores, causing lesions to appear, often known as pimples or zits. Acne outbreaks can occur in different parts of the body such as the face, back chest, or even shoulders and some things can appear in areas like the inner thighs stemming from hygiene issues. 

Patients frequently notice a dark or red spot that affects the skin’s texture. For many people, this mark is temporary: Patients who notice red spots or swelling usually have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a temporary mark brought on by irritation from an acne infection on the skin’s surface. The damage brought on by excessive oil production and germs causes the skin to react sensitively, leaving a red, pink, tan, or brown mark in its behind.

This can cause the patient to suffer from dark acne spots that can have a hypertrophic or atrophic appearance. This unwanted discoloration can be treated by professional dermatologists or aestheticians but the dark spot treatment is not permanent as you need to go for the proper medications prescribed by the practitioner. 

Types of Acne 

You can choose the right acne treatment if you know which type of acne you are suffering from, or you can consult a professional dermatologist or aesthetician to determine the acne type and the acne dark spot treatment

Three types of acne are: 

  • Mild non-inflammatory acne: This Acne is known as comedonal acne that has a black and white head on it
  • Mild inflammatory acne: includes papules and pustules
  • Severe inflammatory acne: have nodules and cysts in it

Best Acne Dark Spot Treatments

When it comes to acne dark spot treatments, dermatologists and aestheticans rely on a variety of treatments that could be beneficial for treating dark spots and reducing their visibility with time.

Some of the dark spot treatments are: 

– Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one of the special treatments for reducing the visibility of acne black spots. It is advised to opt for chemical peels that use salicylic acid or glycolic acid to gently exfoliate the skin and increase cell turnover in order to treat hyperpigmentation or dark spots caused by sun damage. Moreover, these chemical peels have activated ingredients like lactic acid that can be used on those with sensitive skin. 

This is one of the most effective treatments and people with lighter skin tones can opt for this dark spot treatment as it shows quick results. 

– Microneedling 

The microneedling process can sometimes be referred to as a collagen reduction therapy that stimulates the body’s natural ability to repair wounds by making tiny punctures through micro-sized needles on the skin’s surface. Through this process, the skin memory or any scar or acne is disturbed causing the skin to restore itself and resulting in acne scar reduction. 

– Laser Skin Treatments

Laser treatments can also be one of the most effective acne dark spot treatments. Treatments like eMatrix, V-Beam, and Fraxel are some excellent methods to eliminate acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Some advantages of opting for laser as a dark spot treatment are: 

  • It helps to produce collagen and elastin to create new and healthy skin
  • It is safe for patients with sensitive skin
  • If a patient is going through atrophic acne then it can show the rapid healing effects on the acne

Does Botox Help Acne? 

When the sebaceous glands release excessive amounts of oil into the skin’s pores, acne develops. A pimple develops when bacteria feed on the oil, also known as sebum, and cause the pore to become irritated. That’s why many medical professionals think that Botox Is the power to reduce acne due to its ability to stop sebum production in the face. A minimal amount of neurotoxin is injected into important facial muscles as part of Botox therapy for acne. 

Moreover, botox not only stops acne breakouts but also eliminates excessive sweating and minimizes scars and pores.
