Why You Need a Personalized Treatment for Your Acne
When we discuss a sickness or disease, many times we are actually describing the symptoms, not the disease.
Science and medicine have made progress in better
understanding the underlying causes of diseases and therefore allowing
physicians to tailor the treatment that is the best for a particular
individual. Furthermore, researchers are continually developing more precise medications
with a goal of increased efficacy and less adverse side effects. The
birth of personalized medicine came about because of the Human Genome
project that was completed in 2003 and for the first time in human
history provided a detailed "genetic map" for mankind. This map is
helping to explain why some individuals respond to a particular drug or
treatment while others do not and also allows us to actually focus on
individual needs for treatment rather than a traditional "mass
How does personalized medicine relate to the treatment of acne?
While the clinical manifestation of acne is very straightforward and it manifests itself by
pimples, cysts, blackheads and whiteheads on your face and/or body, the
acne disease is actually far more complex. There are also many factors
that can contribute to the formation of acne. For instance some women produce too-high levels of testosterone (androgens)
and as a result may suffer from androgenal acne. Other women may
produce too little estrogen and even though they do not overproduce androgens, the proportion of the hormones is off and this imbalance (too many androgens vs. too little estrogen) may actually result in pushing the sebaceous glands to the overproduction of sebum, and as a result - to acne.
Hormonal fluctuations associated with the menstrual cycle or extensive
sport and physical exercise may also contribute to the formation of
acne. Finally, an individual's genetic makeup (both the part you inherit and the one that is unique for you only) can
possibly also be a factor that influences both severity of your acne
and actually the propensity of you getting acne at all.
The good news is that despite the complexity relating to
the causes of acne there is a common denominator, and this is an
over-production of sebum by the sebaceous glands.
Excess production of sebum leads to clogged pores where dead
skin cells accumulate and provide an ideal environment for the growth of
bacteria. When the body tries to fight those bacteria we will see a
local inflammation that manifests itself as moderate to severe acne,
including redness, tenderness and pimples filled with puss. If this
local inflammation spreads to the area surrounding the clogged pore, we
are facing larger bumps or nodules under the skin known as cystic acne.
In addition to this cause of your acne, there are also other factors that can influence your personalized approach to acne treatment.
- Is your acne mild, moderate or severe?
- Is your acne chronic (lasting for over a year)?
- Do you have cystic acne (bumps under the skin)?
- Do you have inflammatory acne (pustules and papules like puss-filled pimples and zits)?
- Is your acne primarily comedones (blackheads and whiteheads)?
- Is you acne restricted to your face or also present on your torso (back and chest)?
- Are you pre-adolescent, teenager or adult?
In summary, we need to recognize that all of the above factors will contribute to how you decipher your personalized approach
to acne treatment. So if you really want to break the acne cycle and
get, and maintain, clear skin, you should find a treatment that fits
a personalized medicinal approach as closely as possible. AcnEase
