What is Acne?

Our skin has pores, and when dirt, grime and oil from our daily routine clogs those pores, they lead to acne. If your skin is prone to acne, then your pores will get clogged with dead skin cells, even faster than normal ones. Healthy pores normally shed a single layer of dead skin cells a day, but if your skin is prone to acne, then the pores could be shedding up to five layers of dead skin each day! Because of this excessive shedding, the pores are unable to clear themselves out, leading to build up.

Root Causes of Acne

  • Acne occurs when pores get blocked due to the buildup of dead skin cells, sebum and under skin hair follicle and gets infected by Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes).
  • There are other factors also that contribute to the acne formation like hormonal imbalance, excessive sebum production, certain medications, age or puberty etc.
  • Hormonal imbalance is one of the major causes of acne.
  • Hormones like estrogen and testosterone are the reasons of most of teenage acne breakouts while the fluctuating levels of estrogen in menstruation cycle also causes acne.
  • It has been also observed that high levels of insulin increases acne formation as insulin stimulates the oil glands secretion.

How Does Acne Occur?

When you walk into AK Clinics for acne scar treatment in Bangalore, our first step will be to educate you about how acne occurs. Although we will be handling everything associated with the treatment, we do find it helpful to ensure that our patients understand what is happening to their skin. Here is how acne is formed:

What are the Different Types of Acne?

Before treating acne, you need to understand the type – when you come to AK Clinics for acne treatment in Bangalore, our team of doctors will make sure that they take the time to diagnose the type of acne that is afflicting you and the plan of action will be based on that. There are basically two types of acne – inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Here are the main types of acne:


When pores become clogged because of the accumulation of dead skin cells and sebum, it leads to the formation of blackheads. The top of the pore remains open, but the rest of the pore is clogged, which is why it looks black.


Just like blackheads, these are also formed when the pores get clogged because of dead skin cells and sebum. However, the top of the pore is closed, which is why it looks white. Whiteheads are a lot more difficult to treat, because the pores are closed, unlike in the blackheads.


Pustules are formed when the walls surrounding the pores break down, and this is normally caused due to massive inflammation. Pustules are normally filled with pus and look like a red bump with a whitish or yellow head.


Like pustules, papules are also formed when the wall surrounding the pores break down. This leads to the clogging of the pores and is often pinkish in colour.


When the clogged pores start to grow larger and the irritation increases, it becomes a nodule. Nodules are also deeper inside the skin and are much tougher to treat.


A cyst is formed when bacteria also accumulates in the pores, along with the dead skin cells and sebum. These cysts are much deeper than even nodules and can be extremely painful to the touch. Cysts are the most severe form of acne and can lead to severe scarring.

How is Acne Treated?

When you come to AK Clinics Bangalore, we ensure that we provide customised service to each client, because each person is different – each person’s skin is different, the cause for their acne will be different, which is why the same treatment will not work for everyone. We take the time to examine each person, find out what could be causing their acne, find out more about their skin type and then finalise a course of treatment, which would be the best option for them.Here are some of the most commonly used treatments for acne:

Combination therapy

If your acne has just started, you are in luck, because our dermatologist might just prescribe some topical lotions and creams and perhaps a few antibiotics. The topical solutions will have a small concentration of isotretinoin, while the antibiotics could include erythromycin, doxycycline and azithromycin. However, if the acne is on the severe side, then you might be prescribed a stronger concentration of isotretinoin.

Chemical peels

The basic idea behind chemical peels is that it removed the outer layer of the skin, which is normally the dead skin layer. When this layer of the skin is removed under a controlled method, there is a proper exfoliation and if there are any superficial lesions on the skin, they are removed as well. Once the exfoliation has been done, the new layers of skin start to develop again and this skin will be much healthier and fresher looking. Trichloroacetic acid Peel and Salicylic Acid peel are the best for acne.


This is one of the most popular non-invasive procedures for acne treatment. In this procedure, a specialised equipment, which has crystals on the tip is used to buff the dead skin cells away. The skin texture is resurfaced and all the dead pores are flushed out. Whether you have uneven skin tone, age spots or acne, microdermabrasion is the way to go. The procedure helps with the stimulation of new cells, making the skin glow and making it look clear and clean.

Erbium YAG lasers

We are one of the leaders when it comes to providing laser treatment for acne scars in Bangalore and this is one of the best methods to remove acne and acne scars. A device that emits high energy amplified light is used to vaporise the outer layer of the skin, revealing healthy new skin, that lies just beneath. The laser can also kill the bacteria which can lead to acne. The most popular lasers used for acne treatment include CO2, pulsed dye or erbium YAG lasers.

Before, During & After Acne Treatment
