Acne is very common skin condition. Most patients with acne will have a degree of scarring as a result of their acne. In patients with darker skin color the scarring can be further complicated by hyperpigmentation. Several treatment options can be used to improve acne scarring, however the problem of post acne hyperpigmentation is not often addressed. This study especially focus on the treatment of pigmented post acne scarring using skin microneedling.
Acne is common among young people.
Scarring may occur in 45% to 55% of acne patients, it may produce significant psychopathology, and it is challenging to treat.1,2,3 Identifying factors associated with acne scars may assist in their prevention strategy. We conducted a cross-sectional study to investigate clinical factors associated with acne facial scarring at first visit, including age, sex, smoking, family history of acne, and the history of previous acne treatments. Active acne on the face was graded by the Global Evaluation of Acne (GEA...
Acne vulgaris is one of the commonest skin disorders affecting up to 80% of the world population at least during adolescence. Significant psychosocial effects such as depression and poor personality development have been linked with acne, especially in female adolescents. Various causative factors, including cosmetic exposure, have been attributed toward acne.
Background /Aim: Acne fulminans is a rare form of acne vulgaris with acute clinical deterioration including systemic signs. Etiopathogenesis and management remain largely unknown. Our aim is to assess the efficacy of a combined therapeutic regimen of systemic isotretinoin and prednisolone following the recent concepts of acne pathogenesis and drug kinetics.
Acne vulgaris (acne) is the most common skin disease we see in dermatology practice. Clinically, it is characterized by a combination of open and closed comedones (formally referred to as noninflammatory lesions) and inflammatory papules and pustules. Comedonal acne is more typical in young adolescents, but can occur in combination with inflammatory papules and pustules at any time. Topical retinoids have long been advocated for the treatment of comedonal acne.
Acne vulgaris is common dermatologic condition with an estimated prevalence of 70 to 87%. Acne has been shown to have a significant impact on patient quality of life and mental health, especially as inflammatory lesions typically occur on cosmetically sensitive areas with the potential for permanent scarring. There have been numerous advances in the treatment of inflammatory acne with light-based and laser devices.
Quality of Life Measurement in Acne. Position Paper of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Task Forces on Quality of Life and Patient Oriented Outcomes (QoL and PO) and Acne, Rosacea and Hidradenitis Suppurativa (ARHS).
Acne causes profound negative psychological and social effects on the quality of life (QoL) of patients. The European Dermatology Forum S3-Guideline for the Treatment of Acne recommended adopting a QoL measure as an integral part of acne management. Because of constantly growing interest in health-related QoL assessment in acne and because of the high impact of acne on patients' lives, the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology Task Force on QoL and Patient Oriented Outcomes and the Task Force on A...
Acne vulgaris (acne) is prevalent in individuals with skin of color, often with more frequent sequelae than in patients with lighter skin color. It is important to determine if there are also differences in response to medications.
Acne is one of the most common skin diseases. It has significant effect on self-image and negative impact on quality of life. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is an acquired hypermelanosis that occurs after a skin injury or cutaneous inflammation. It is common sequelae in acne patients.
Acne fulminans is an uncommon and debilitating disease that presents as an acute eruption of nodular and ulcerative acne lesions in association with systemic symptoms. It occurs commonly during treatment of severe acne (eg, acne conglobata) with isotretinoin in young adolescent male patients. Isotretinoin and doxycycline also can potentially induce development of neutrophilic dermatoses in patients with severe acne lesions, which are characterized by the acute appearance of painful ulcerative papulonodules ...
Acne vulgaris is a self-limiting disorder of the pilosebaceous unit. The aesthetic aspect of the disorder may provoke depression and diminish the quality of life. A number of agents are used for acne treatment, e.g., retinoids, antibiotics, benzoic acid, azelaic acid, and hormones. These agents have side-effects, sometimes severe ones.
An unfortunate consequence of severe acne is scarring, which can have serious psychosocial consequences. Available methods for treating acne scars have varying degrees of effectiveness.
Excoriated acne is a difficult challenge in daily practice. Patients generally fail to follow the most important measure: not to "clean" and manipulate their lesions. Because the literature tends to emphasize the mental aspect of this condition, patients with excoriated acne may be quickly classified as psychosomatic or even psychiatric cases, and dermatologists may be overlooking opportunities to help. This report presents the case of a young woman with excoriated acne and anorexia nervosa, treated with a ...
The negative impact of acne on aspects of health-related quality of life (HRQL) has been demonstrated in many quantitative studies; however, there has been relatively little qualitative research exploring the impact of acne and the use of topical treatment. The study aimed to explore the impact of moderate-severe acne on HRQL in adolescents and adults with inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions and to develop a conceptual model to illustrate the impact. In addition, the study aimed to identify the attrib...
Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous units (PSU), associated with increased sebum production, abnormal follicular keratinization (hyperkeratinization), follicular overgrowth of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), and increased inflammatory mediator release. Light therapy has attracted medical interests as a safe alternative treatment for acne. Both blue and red light therapies at high doses >10 J/cm(2) have demonstrated marked effects on inflammatory acne lesions. However, ...
Acne vulgaris (acne) is the most common skin disease we see in dermatology practice. Although rare in childhood, severe acne can affect up to 12% of the adolescent population. A chronic disease, it requires both aggressive management and effective maintenance strategies. Oral antibiotics, in combination with topical agents are recommended for treatment, with topical agents being continued as maintenance therapy to minimize resistance and recurrence. However, concerns with systemic side effects have recently...
Novel device-based acne treatments: comparison of a 1,450-nm diode laser and micro-needling radiofrequency on mild to moderate acne vulgaris and seborrhea in Korean patients through a 20-week prospective, randomized, split-face study.
While device-based acne treatments are widely applied for patients not tolerating conventional medications, related controlled studies have been still limited. Recently, non-ablative 1,450-nm diode laser (DL) and fractional micro-needling radiofrequency (FMR) have been effectively used for acne, in addition to well-recognized dermal remodeling effects.
Light-based acne treatments may represent a new emerging treatment for acne that does not increase the risk of bacterial resistance and they may be potentially effective with a favorable safety profile. Current data show that photodynamic therapy reduces inflammatory lesions and significantly improves acne. However, there is no consensus on the optimal implementation in the treatment of acne. In addition to topically applied photodynamic therapy, intense pulsed light, pulsed dye lasers, potassium-titanyl-ph...
Acne scar is a common distressing complication of acne vulgaris. CO2 laser resurfacing proved effective for treatment of such problem but the associated complications may limit its use. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) may increase the chance of favorable outcome.
In professional baseball pitchers, pitching biomechanics have not been examined for the slider, and the only known study for the curveball and changeup examined limited kinetics. Moreover, no known studies have investigated pitching biomechanics between strikes and balls. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose was to compare pitching biomechanics in professional baseball pitchers among the fastball, slider, curveball, and changeup and between balls and strikes. It was hypothesized that pitching kinematics and kine...
Propionibacterium acnes, a major member of normal skin microbiota, is subdivided into 6 phylotypes: IA1, IA2, IB, IC, II and III. This study investigated P. acnes subgroups on the face and back in patients with severe acne and in healthy controls. In 71.4% of patients with severe acne, P. acnes phylotypes were identical on the face and back, whereas this was the case in only 45.5% of healthy controls. The healthy group carried phylotypes IA1 (39.1%) and II (43.4%), whereas the acne group carried a high pred...
Acne is a chronic, immune-mediated, inflammatory disease with high prevalence among adolescents. By compromising face, thorax and back, with the risk of permanent scars, it has a negative impact on the quality of life. Effective, safe and early treatment is the key to remission, while decreasing the risk of physical and/or emotional sequelae. The Iberian-Latin American Group of Acne Studies joined professionals with expertise and developed a practical therapeutic algorithm, adapted to the reality of Latin A...
Primary nonadherence with acne medications is high but commonly underreported to prescribing physicians.
