What is acne?
Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, characterized by blackheads and whiteheads (called comedones), pimples, and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules). They are caused when hair follicles are clogged with oil, bacteria and dead skins cells, and can occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.
How do bacteria affect acne?
Some bacteria live normal on the skin and cause no harm, such as some Staphylococcus species, Corynebacterium spp., Brevibacterium spp and Acinetobacter.
Bacteria that contribute to inflammatory lesions in acne include:
👉 Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes, formally known as Propionibacterium acnes)
👉 Corynebacterium granulosum (also known as Cutibacterium acnes and formally known as Propionibacterium granulosum)
👉 Staphylococcus epidermidis (coagulase-negative staphylococcus).
However, the severity of a person's acne does not depend on the number of bacteria on the skin surface or in the sebaceous ducts (the passageway from the oil glands). The number and activity of C. acnes bacteria varies according to oxygen supply, nutrient supply and the pH level of the skin. Some acne lesion are colonised by C. acnes and others are not. The C. acnes bacteria can produce active enzymes and innate inflammatory mediators and these may contribute to the activity of acne in some patients. Activation triggers expression of immune response genes. The inflammatory mediators provoked by the bacteria penetrate surrounding skin and are a cause of inflammation.
What is the effect of treatment on acne bacteria? Acne can be treat on many different ways.
Topical treatment for acne is available as washes, solutions, lotions, gels and creams. They may have a single or multiple active ingredients. There are numerous products available in supermarkets and pharmacies. Some require a doctor's prescription.
Active ingredients may have one or more of the following properties:
👉 Antibiotics and antiseptics to reduce counts of Cutibacterium acnes (P.acnes) bacteria
👉 Anti-inflammatory effects to calm red, inflamed skin by inhibiting lipase production by C.acnes
👉 Anti-oxidants to protect cells from damage by free radicals
👉 Comedolytics to unplug blocked follicles (comedones)
👉 Keratolytics to peel off surface scale (exfoliants)
👉 Agents that affect keratinisation; these normalise skin cell maturation.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT ALL THESE CAN BE REPLACES WITH COLD PLASMA - NATURAL PHENOMENON DEVELOPED BY INTELIGENT COREAN TECHNOLOGY IN PLABEAU S1 AND G4+ DEVICE?
HOW CAN COLD PLASMA TREATMENT IMPROVE THE SKIN? There are 6 Clinically proven benefits (read article about Plabeau G4+) but in this article will be mention the one that is conected with purifyng the skin and sterilising bacteria that causes acne.
REDUCING SURFACE SKIN BACTERIA AND OTHER HARMFUL MICROBES THAT CAN LEAD TO INFLAMMATION AND INFECTION
Plasma treatment is used to treat skin ulcers and bed sores in hospitals where the infection has become resistant to most common antibiotics. This is a breakthrough in the medical industry where multiply resistant bacteria are a problem.
The sterilisation of skin is painless and leaves healthy skin intact.
A single 2-minute treatment of cold atmospheric plasma was shown to be safe, painless and effective, decreasing 40% of bacterial load in plasma-treated wounds, regardless of the species of bacteria and without any noted side effects.
