A dermatological disease like acne affects a large part of the French population. It is estimated to be more common in young people, with almost 80% of young people between the ages of 11 and 30 being affected. Nonetheless, people of all ages can be affected. Women are more likely to develop acne symptoms. This factor is linked to hormonal changes attributed to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and polycystic ovaries.
Acne occurs when the tiny hair follicles in the skin become blocked. This can happen when the sebaceous glands produce excess sebum. This substance lubricates the skin and hair and prevents them from drying out. If too much sebum is produced, it can mix with dead skin cells and clog pores. This leads to the formation of white pimples or blackheads. Infected cysts and pustules can also develop if normally harmless bacteria on the skin infiltrate the blocked follicles.
Less severe cases of acne may not require treatment. Some people see improvement in their symptoms by implementing a daily cleansing routine. Those who get acne may notice symptoms sporadically for several years, but the majority of those affected will see great improvement as they get older.
Most acne symptoms disappear during the twenties. But for some, acne persists, and it can be difficult to treat and even have an adverse effect on the well-being of patients. There are a variety of treatments available to reduce the number of breakouts and restore the skin’s natural balance. Isotroin belongs to this category of drugs and is available for purchase from our online pharmacy.
Isotroin works by unblocking the pores, allowing blackheads and white pimples to be pushed out of the skin more easily. It also encourages the renewal of skin cells, a process called exfoliation. This makes it more difficult for pimples to form. This allows the skin to get rid of existing pimples and prevent new ones from appearing.
Use Isotroin exactly as your doctor has told you. If you have any concerns, please speak to them before starting treatment.
- Remove all traces of makeup
- wash your hands
- Gently wash the area with lukewarm water and pat dry
- Use your finger to carefully apply a thin layer of gel to the affected area
- Make sure you cover the entire area, not just the pimples
- Wash your hands again
