Acne Treatment in Faridabad and South Delhi

Acne develops because of changes in the sebaceous gland. This gland is present below the skin, and when there is increased sebum (oil) production, Infection with the propionate bacterium acne, or inflammation, the pores get blocked, resulting in the development of acne.

At Skination, our expert dermatologists provide an effective acne treatment in Faridabad and South Delhi after a thorough evaluation of the condition, its severity, type, and many more factors.

What is Acne?

Acne is what we call a pimple in simple language. 80% of people have experienced acne at some point in their lives. Though it is common in teenagers, it is not restricted to this age group. Adult acne that occurs after the age of 25 is very common nowadays, and many times it points towards hormonal influence on the sebaceous glands resulting in acne.

Factors That Cause Acne

Common Changes in the Skin that Bring about Acne:

1. Increased sebum production

2. Bacterial infection: propiobacterium acne causing infection

3. Increased cellular turnover in sebaceous glands and dead skin cells

4. Inflammation: resulting in inflammatory cells being aggregated and resulting in acne

Other Factors Causing Acne:

1. Hormonal changes: an age-related example in teenagers

2. Diet: High-glycemic-index foods are known to release in-su-lin like growth factors, resulting in acne.

3. Wrong skin care and cosmetic products: for example, oily make-up—can clog the pores.

4. Wrong skin care habits: for example, over-exfoliation

5. Associated diseases like PCOD

6. Drugs: and-ro-gens, steroids

7. Excessive hydration of the gland is seen in patients who sweat excessively.

8. Wrong hair care products or excess use, for example, use of chemical hair straighteners

9. Stress: When stress intensifies, the severity of acne increases.

These are the common factors causing acne. To provide the best-suited acne treatment in South Delhi and Faridabad, our expert dermatologist’s first step is to determine the actual cause leading to acne.​

What Increases Acne?

  • Certain foods that have a high glycemic index.
  • Less sleep
  • Taking stress
  • Smoking 
  • Oily skin care products

What Increases the Chances of Getting Acne?

We have all experienced a few breakouts at some point in our lives. What makes an individual more likely to develop acne is if one or both parents had severe acne that resulted in acne scars.

So what changes do you need to make in your routines to prevent acne eruptions? That are as follows:

1. Look for Signs Indicating Acne is Hormonal: Like changes in the menstrual cycle, acne more severe on the lower face, unwanted facial hair in females, and excessive seborrhoea.

2. Changes in Skin Care Products: Avoid oil-based products; look for non-comedogenic skin care products.

3. Changes in Cosmetics: Oil-Free, non-comedogenic cosmetics should be used.

4. Change in Hair Care Practices: avoid application of oil on roots; avoid overnight hair oiling; rinse hair care products like conditioners, masks, and oil completely; use less oily hair care products; etc. 

Types of Acne

Depending on the types of lesions, acne is given various names, including comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. 

  • Comedones: They develop when there is a blockage of the opening of the sebaceous gland at the surface of the skin. These types of acne are what we call blackheads or whiteheads in simple language. 
  • Papule: When there is redness and an increase in size in acne, it is called a papule.
  • Pustule: When there is an accumulation of Pus in the lesion, it is called a pustule. 
  • Cystic: When acne becomes even bigger and feels like a deep lesion below the skin, it is either nodular acne or cystic acne, depending on whether it feels hard or fluid-filled.

Note: It is important to know the type of acne because treatment is different depending on the type, number, and thus severity of the acne.

Factors Determining the Type of Treatment

The following factors determine the treatment that will suit one best:

  • Types of acne 
  • Severity of acne 
  • Site of Acne
  • Number of acne 
  • Age of the patient
  • Associated medical history
  • Tolerability of treatments 
  • Occupation 
  • Phase of life (pregnancy, lactation)

Treatments for Acne

There are basically three types of treatments:
1. Oral Medicines 

There are many options, for example:

  • oral iso-tre-ti-noin 
  • doxy-cyc-line 
  • lime-cyc-line 
  • mino-cyc-line 
  • azi-thro-my-cin 
  • OCPs

Oral medicines work by decreasing sebum production, decreasing inflammation or infection, and decreasing comedone formation.

2. Topical Medications

The following are the topical medications:

  • Salicylic acid 
  • Ret-ino-ls
  • Benzoyl peroxide 
  • Cli-nda-my-cin 
  • Azelaic acid 
  • Glycolic acid

3. Medical Procedures

Following are some of the most effective medical procedures for treating acne: 

  • Chemical Peels 

Peels are active skin ingredients that are applied to acne-prone skin, kept for a few minutes, and then neutralized. Peels reach the depth of the sebaceous glands, improving the pre-existing acne and treating the pores so that new acne doesn't form.

  • A commonly used ingredient for oily, acne-prone skin is salicylic acid.
  • Glycolic acid works in a similar way as salicylic acid and is used for patients who have marks in addition to acne. This active agent in peels works great for removing the pigmentation that is left after acne heals.
  • Mandelic acid peels work when acne is pus-filled and the skin is too sensitive to tolerate glycolic acid peels.
  • Yellow peels are also used on patients with oily, acne-prone, and tanned skin for amazing outcomes.
  • The time needed for this procedure is around 30 minutes.
  • The number of sessions varies with the patient's acne type and severity, so you need anything between 4-8 sessions. The gap between the sessions is 2-3 weeks, though some peels can be done with a shorter gap as well.


  • Q-Switch Lasers

This removes the dead superficial skin cells, shrinks the open pores, and decreases the oiliness of the skin. Thus making acne better and making skin less acne-prone.

  • We provide the internationally acclaimed, US-FDA-approved tribeam latest Q Switch Laser. This technology, being best-in-class, is sought after by patients as the first choice for skin rejuvenation because it suits all skin types and can be used very well in oily, acne-prone patients.
  • Patients appreciate changes as early as immediately after the first session.


  • Fractional Laser 

Delivering the laser energy in microchannels for the induction of collagen in the deeper layer of skin is the mechanism of action of fractional lasers. The great advantage of this laser is that it can work on various types of acne and acne scars. The downtime here is longer than with peels and Q-Switch lasers, but it is worth it for the treatment of acne and acne scars.

  • Microneedling: Creating micropunctures in the skin with microneedling to enhance collagen production is how microneedling works. In addition to acne scars, fine lines and open pores also improve with microneedling.
  • Microneedling Radiofrequency: The microchannels here are created by the radiofrequency probe, and it also delivers this energy, making sure that there is collagen induction that is fast, superior, and result-oriented. It is widely used in the aesthetic industry, and at Skination, we excel in the treatment by customizing the depth of penetration and also the energy to be given.


  • Pla-te-let Rich Pl-as-ma

Famous as a vampire facial, pla-te-let rich pl-as-ma is made from the patient's own blood. Before the session, a numbing cream is applied to the skin, while some blood is withdrawn in special tubes. This is followed by centrifugation in high-end machines, ensuring highly concentrated P-R-P is formed. It helps repair the skin, which is damaged due to acne and therefore has marks, redness, and scars. It also brings overall rejuvenation to the skin and is one of the most effective skin repair procedures.


  • Intralesional Injections 

Used only in very selective cases of acne, for example, big nodulocystic acne. Here, injecting the cysts or nodules decreases the chances of scarring as the lesions heal faster. Also used in keloidal acne, other therapies for these types of acne work minimally. 

Why Should Acne Not Be Ignored And Treated On Time?

  • The chances of smaller lesions becoming bigger decreases
  • The earlier you treat the lesions less are the chances of scarring
  • Less chances of developing resistance to treatment
  • Less emotional stress due to acne
