Inflammatory lesions in acne
Inflammatory lesions in acne (pimples or zits) include small red bumps (papules), pustules, large red bumps (nodules) and cysts (these are fluctuant nodules). They are often painful.What is the cause of inflammatory acne?
They usually result from rupture of the wall of the closed comedone but may arise from normal-appearing skin.
The factors contributing to inflammation are:
There are many treatment options for adult acne problems, but it is not mandatory that everyone gets cured. Dermatologists prescribe medicines taking skin care into concern. In many cases, blood and urine tests are taken, to test for any underlying causes. Severe acne patients are given antibiotics and very severe adult acne patients are treated with laser surgery, considering the seriousness of the problem. People suffering from acne should consult board certified dermatologists like Dr. Gary Rothfeld and then undergo treatments that are suitable to them.
Acne treatments are always done on the basis of severity of condition. Mild acne problems can be treated with topical products containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic and glycolic acids. Some persistent acne patients may require systematic antibiotics like tetracycline, erythromycin, and accutane. New methods like chemical peels and lasers are also included in the treatments to eradicate pimples and the marks present.
In many cases, acne cannot be cured completely, but can definitely be controlled in almost every case. Some basic steps need to be followed by adults. They should always touch their face gently, even when washing. Their diet should be as healthy as possible, and they should avoid oily or greasy foods whenever possible. Men should be careful while shaving using electric or ordinary razors, as these can negatively affect acne.
When pimples arise, the need to flatten them out and squeeze is understandable. Unfortunately though, this may lead to short and long-term problems such as persistent redness, large brown stains (hyperpigmentation) and scarring (loss of skin substructure). Stains and scars are often confused by patients – stains are pale or brown flat marks whereas scars can be seen as indentations or pock marks in the skin. It’s now recognized that scars can also develop from small as well as large lumpy pimples.
For both scars and stains, the best treatment is avoidance - that is, preventing the acne in the first place or at least treating it early and avoiding picking or squeezing the spots.
To treat acne and prevent new scars from forming, you should remember:
Types of Acne Scars
It is common to have stains and mild scars from acne. Stains will generally improve with time and can be helped to improve more quickly with skin care treatments such as topical retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acids and therapeutic exfoliating facials. For many of those with mild scars, they may not even be aware of it – some of these may improve over time. However, severe scarring may be more difficult to treat.
There are a number of types of scars caused by acne.
Acne Scar Treatment Facts:
New laser and radiofrequency devices are being evaluated for enhancing collagen formation in deeper skin layers without damaging the skin surface. It is possible that these treatments may also prove useful in acne scarring.
Using laser or broadband visible light, 5-6 treatments that are performed every 3-4 weeks. This treatment improves mild acne scarring by causing new collagen formation. Dr. Rothfeld at NYC Dermatology performs these procedures.
Fraxel laser approved for acne scar treatment
Got acne scars? There’s a new laser on the market that has been garnering remarkable results in eradicating those unsightly pits.
The FDA recently approved the Fraxel laser for the treatment of acne scarring. First introduced in 2004 for the treatment of age-related wrinkles and sun-damage, this laser works by gently “resurfacing” the skin and replacing the damaged goods with new, healthy tissue.
Most acne scar patients need only three to four treatments. There’s minimal downtime, if any at all, according to researchers at Stanford University who conducted studies on the Fraxel.
The results and numbers are impressive with 92 percent of study participants still demonstrating significant improvement in scar severity three months after treatment ended. Check with your board certified dermatologist Dr. Gary Rothfeld to see if Fraxel might be right for you.

a) Ablative Laser Treatments: - Laser resurfacing (CO2 laser, Erbium Yag laser): These resurfacing lasers remove the surface layer of skin and cause a zone of heat injury. The healing process allows for reformation with younger less scarred skin and deeper layer of new collagen formation.
b) Dermabrasion: - This is a mechanical procedure in which a rapidly rotating wire or brush is used to strip off the surface irregularities of skin. Felt by most experts to be the most effective primary treatment for extensive scarring, it can be used in conjunction with fillers and excision
