Cystic Acne

Cystic acne, known as acne cysts, is inflammatory acne. This means bacteria has infected a pore that’s been blocked by oils and skin cells. Your body tries to fight and push out the bacteria and skin cells plug in your pore, which leads to inflammation.


Cystic Acne


Cystic acne is classified as severe acne, which materializes as painful, swollen, pus-filled bumps. Usually appearing in adolescents undergoing puberty, and known for its persistence, cystic acne is different from your typical acne because it’s rooted deeper in the skin, much more so than the blackheads, whiteheads, red pimples and pustules you typically see. Hormones, genetics, medications, diet, and stress are a few things that can both cause and aggravate cystic acne.

Standard acne treatments like creams, cleansers and gels available in your local drugstore or grocery just don’t cut it. And while treatment starts at home with daily cleansing and regularly monitoring your diet, cystic acne requires a professional consultation, assessment, and a treatment algorithm rooted in success. That’s DrSkin’s recipe for success, because restoring your skin health isn’t just about smooth, soft skin, it is about getting your life back, and living to your fullest.
