We are certain that no one will ever understand skin conditions and provide the solutions as we do. Since acne is the most common issue faced by many people, it is generally caused by the overproduction of sebum which is a normal oil present in the skin that will increase under the influence of hormones when coupled with insufficient shedding of dead skin cells that plug the hair follicles. The plugged follicle can become inflamed and have increased growth of Propionibacterium acnes that ranges from normal skin to bacterial.
Acne can become chronic and results in scarring which can appear to be depressions in the skin or hyperpigmentation, so minimizing the breakouts is important. Most people with spots are facing a medical condition called acne vulgaris. Our acne scar treatment in Lajpat Nagar provides services that are assured to be distinguished from other present types and less common variants of acne.

Faq’s related to acne treatment
What is ‘acne vulgaris’?
Acne vulgaris is the medical term for the most common type of acne. It is a skin condition that particularly affects adolescents and manifests itself as an ‘outbreak’ of blackheads and other non-inflammatory spots or inflamed pimples, nodules, and cysts. Usually develops on the face although the body may also be affected. If it occurs on the body then it usually appears on the neck, back, chest and shoulders.
How Should I Manage My Acne?
It is a good idea to have a routine that consists of a skin hygiene plan (washing the face twice a day), drinking plenty of water, a healthy diet, and using an acne product. Do not be tempted to double up on any of the acne products in the belief that this will act faster on your acne. Combining too many acne products at once can further irritate your skin and prevent your pores from clearing. The treatment tends to quench your skin’s thirst and binds moisture retaining the brightness back thereby reducing the scars that will not stick with you.
