ACNEZON has been developed to combat all forms of acne, both non-inflammatory and inflammatory. It regulates and reduces blackheads, regulates excess oil and sebum, removes dead skin cells and bacteria and provides an enhanced anti-inflammatory effect along with a keratolytic action that helps normalise skin problems and restore skin tone and appearance.
It stimulates the formation of new fibroblasts and repairs blemishes and scarring caused by acne, producing new collagen and increasing elastin production.
Types of Acne:
A- NON-INFLAMMATORY ACNE:
Closed comedones / whiteheads. If the blocked pore remains below the surface of the skin, the lesion is called a closed comedo or whitehead. These generally appear as small whitish bumps on the skin. Also known as milia, they are usually caused by an imbalance of oil and moisture and tend to occur on dehydrated skin where oil/sebum is over-active in order to compensate for the lack of moisture on the skin surface.
Open comedones / blackheads. If the blocked pore becomes enlarged and pushes through the surface of the skin, it is called an open comedo or blackhead. Contrary to popular belief, the dark appearance of the blocked pore is not due to dirt, but rather a build-up of melanin, the skin’s dark pigment. Regular exfoliation helps relieve this build-up of melanin and lessen the appearance of blackheads.
B- INFLAMMATORY ACNE
- The mildest form of inflammatory acne, which appear on the skin as small, firm pink bumps. They can almost be mistaken for mosquito bites and are often an intermediary stage between non-inflammatory and clearly inflammatory acne.
- Small round, clearly inflamed lesions that contain visible pus. They may appear red at the base, with a yellowish or whitish centre.
Nodules or Cysts. Large, painful, inflamed, pus-filled lesions deep within the skin (subcutaneous). The most severe form of acne lesion, nodules may persist for weeks or months, their contents hardening into a deep cyst. Both nodules and cysts often leave deep scars that are difficult to eliminate.
Acne Conglobata. This rare but serious form of acnes mainly occurs on the back, buttocks and chest. In addition to the presence of pustules and nodules, it may also become a severe bacterial infection.
