Do not mistaken it for your usual pimple that emerges due to blockage in the skin pores. Cystic acne is a severe type of acne that commonly affects the face in which deep rooted lesions form under the skin. Although, it can often affect the upper trunk and upper arms, it is unfortunate that it mainly occurs on the face.

It often causes infection and inflammation and may result in hard painful cysts under the surface of the skin. It can be disfiguring and cause deep pits and scars on the skin.

How To Treat Cystic Acne

Breaking open the cyst by trying to pop it will spread the infection to your surrounding skin, and inevitably cause more breakouts. On top of that, you are more likely to develop scars because it is so deep down in your skin.

In a procedure called intralesional corticosteroid injection, we will inject a diluted corticosteroid directly into your acne cyst. Taking only a few minutes to perform, redness, inflammation and other typical acne symptoms are visibly reduced.

The Causes

Typically, the oil glands become blocked with oil, dead skin cells, and other debris that are trapped under the skin.

Although it is not certain that stress for lifestyle can cause cystic acne, scientists do know that cells that produce sebum have receptors for stress hormones. And the sebum is the oily substance that mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria to clog the hair follicles, leading to a pimple or acne cyst.

Therefore, the general thumb of rule is to make sure your skin is thoroughly clean, which can be easily achieved with our Chemical Peel facial.

What Results to Expect

Within a few hours, you can expect your pimple to shrink, flatten and significantly less noticeable. Furthermore, this procedure will also prevent acne scarring. For more detailed explanation, consult in our aesthetics clinic Singapore today.
