What causes spots on face?

The most common spots appearing on a face are caused by acne. These can be mild to severe, appearing as blackheads or whiteheads. As the name suggests blackheads are small, dark or black in color.

Whiteheads too are small, white colored in the middle and are usually rather hard. Neither of the two is painful or inflamed.

However, when you have large, painful and puss producing spots, it is best to consult a dermatologist for an appropriate treatment. It is important as early treatment surely helps to prevent the formation of scars.

Acne is mainly the result of skin’s reaction to hormonal changes that the body undergoes. That explains why teenagers are most prone to acne.

As the level of hormone testosterone increases it facilitates the skin to produce more sebum, (protective oil) and an excess of this oil on getting mixed with dead cells in the skin causes blockages in skin’s follicles and these blockages appear as spots.

If bacteria manage to enter there, spots become larger and more painful too. Acne normally appears on your face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. You should understand that sebum is naturally produced oil that protects skin. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy and the use of oral contraceptives can also affect sebum production.

How to get rid of spot scars?

spot-scarsAs already pointed out, untreated acne can lead to the formation of scars. Such scars are stubborn and there is no single treatment applicable for all.

Yet, Here are various procedures to help  to improve your complexion:

  • Laser treatments: This procedure involves use of a laser beam to destroy the outer layer of skin. As the lesion heals, new skin forms.
  • Surgery: In certain cases surgery is a viable option for removing deeply indented acne scars. It is a minor surgery that cuts out individual acne scars. Stitches or a skin graft repairs the hole caused at the scar site.
  • Tissue fillers: This involves injecting collagen or fat beneath the skin, into the acne scars to stretch the skin to make acne scars less noticeable. Results are temporary, meaning you’ll need to take injections periodically.
  • Dermabrasion: In this case the top layer of skin is removed, using a fast rotating wire brush. Surface scars can be completely removed, and deeper acne scars become less noticeable.
