Acne is one of the most common inflammatory skin diseases in the world. Acne directly affects the hair follicle and the sebaceous glands in the skin, resulting in the formation of blackheads and pimples, pustules and in the worst case scars that remain on the skin forever. This is one of the most common diseases during adolescence and injuries appear mainly on the face, chest and upper back.
Causes of acne
There are many causes that contribute to the appearance of acne, some of them at a hormonal level and others due to external factors.
Acne is present in many age groups, from newborns (due to the hormonal changes that occur after birth), to adolescents and pre-adolescents during the phase of change to adulthood (80% of adolescents suffer from acne to a greater or lesser extent) and also to women during the premenstrual phase due to the hormonal changes that occur prior to the appearance of the menstrual cycle.
There are also some types of acne that are caused by external triggers, such as tropical acne.
This type of acne is very common in tropical areas with a very hot and very humid climate, which causes overproduction and accumulation of sebum in the skin glands of individuals who come from other areas with a different climate.
Also some types of medication can alter the sebaceous balance of the skin and trigger the appearance of acne.
Repairing and Masking Acne Scars
Scars caused by acne are easily recognizable as they are usually rounded and form a small depression in the skin. Sometimes they are accompanied by spots. Dermal fillers, commonly used to correct wrinkles or improve the shape and appearance of the skin, can also be used for certain types of acne scars in general. These types of scars can be perfectly concealed with the use of dermal fillers that are easily applied by a professional.
Most common fillers for acne scars
There are several dermal fillers that can be used to conceal acne scars. The most common are those that contain hyaluronic acid or derivatives in their formula. Let’s check a couple of them you can find in our online shop.
The basic formula of Filorga NCTF 135 is free non cross-linked hyaluronic acid, along with vitamins and amino acids that promote protein construction. This formula allows to fill and cover all the acne scars that may have appeared on the skin during the previous years.
