Types of Acne
Acne can manifest as different types of eruptions.
Also called closed comedones, they are non-inflammatory in nature and are caused by excess oil being trapped in the skin pore. They commonly appear on the nose, chin and face.
Inflammatory in nature, unlike papules, pustules are filled with pus. They are raised and generally have white or yellow heads.
Non-inflammatory in nature, they occur when the pore is clogged by a combination of excess oil and dead skin cells. They are also called open comedones.
Unlike, papules and pustules they are deeper underneath the skin and are more likely to scar.
Inflammatory in nature, they occur when the infection causes the pore to expand and results in hard, clogged pores that are sensitive to touch with red or pink surrounding skin.
They are the largest form of Acne and are usually caused due to a severe infection. It is most likely to scar.
Causes and Triggers
The primary cause of Acne is the blockage of skin pores with oil, dead skin or bacteria. These pores (Hair follicles) are attached to tiny oil producing glands (called sebaceous glands) that are responsible for lubricating the hair and skin with sebum and prevent it from drying out.
When these glands produce too much oil (sebum), this excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and blocks the pore, the ever-present bacteria on the skin contaminates and infects these pores causing zits/pimples/papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.
How Acne Develop

Oily skins are generally more prone to acne because of the excess oil. Our acne treatment for oily skins use the most sought-after techniques to get rid of them. But first, let us understand how our skin develops this condition.
Acne develops from the hair follicle of a healthy pore. Bacteria starts to spread within its sebaceous gland—responsible for oil secretion—and clogs the pore. Thereby, this leads to swelling of the pore. This can be triggered due to factors such as heredity, puberty, pressure, hormones, diet, drugs, occupations, and cosmetics.
The pimples treatment provided at our clinic can help you them and their scars irrespective of the cause.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, it is a popular acne treatment for women. This procedure involves the use of a rolling instrument with 192 to 540 pins of varying lengths. A 2/2-inch of skin is taken and stretched, and the instrument is rolled on the affected area. This is done until pinpoint bleeding occurs, as it is essential for the regeneration of the skin.
This simple procedure can be done anytime—even in between your office hours—and takes about six to eight sessions for flawless results.
• Chemical Peeling
This procedure of removal of top dead skin layers is also known as derma peel. Also, suitable acne treatment for men, this can be done even during their break hours. It involves the use of chemical agents that cause controlled destruction of the outer-skin layers, epidermis, and dermis.
Depending on your skin type, the chemical effects the entire epidermal layer (superficial grade)or dermal layer (medium or deep grade). At Berkowits, we use various chemicals such as glycolic, salicylic, lactate, and phenol among others to perform this procedure.
Glycolic peel, a medium grade treatment, is the best acne treatment for dry skin as it promotes the production of new collagen and elastin. Lactic peel, however, is a superficial grade treatment, which is a suitable acne treatment for sensitive skin as well as dry skin.
You must take precautions by not undergoing another abrasive procedure for at least one week after the treatment. During this phase, you must always apply our Berkowits Protect Sunscreen Gel when going out in the sun.
