Acne is one of the most common forms of skin diseases. Approximately 40% of patients require specialized care. Berlin clinics point out that such a group of patients is at risk of scar formation because the course of the disease is wave-like, from acute to chronic. In such a situation, doctors in hospitals in Europe recommend constant monitoring and active skincare.

Overview

 

Acne looks like red nodule formations on the skin. Nodules appear because of inflammation of the sebaceous glands. This can happen for various reasons, one of which is negative changes in metabolism. Acne can affect not only the face but also the epidermis of the neck, shoulders, chest, back, and arms.

Acne often occurs during puberty, along with hormonal changes. It requires a complex treatment that includes more than just cosmetic acne treatment.

Types of acne

 

Acne develops due to the increased sebaceous secretion that leads to the thickening of the layers of the sebaceous glands. Types of acne differ in characteristics. There are common types of skin formations such as:

  • Milia (also called closed comedones)
  • Open comedones
  • Cysts
  • Acne conglobate
  • Abscesses

Symptoms

 

Depending on the cause of the disease, psychological problems may arise, since the body often suffers from the hormonal changes. Tendency to depression, constant stress, and many other psychological problems may develop.

It is important to understand that acne occurs when the hair follicles begin to clog up with dead cells. As a result, they don’t release naturally and begin to accumulate in certain places. Even though most people, in one way or another, suffer from acne, it should not be ignored. If acne does not go away but continues to appear, then you should consult a doctor.

Before you see a doctor, here are some things you can do in order not to worsen the health condition:

  • Do not touch the skin in the affected area; do not squeeze out pimples (this leads to more severe forms of acne and scarring).
  • Sunbathing can improve skin condition for a short time, but it can further worsen the situation, as the excess of sunlight can increase the risk of cancer in certain cases.
  • Avoid chlorinated water.
  • Pay attention to your diet.

In 60% of cases, the cause of acne is connected with digestive issues. You can start by simply monitoring the effects of certain foods on your body.

Acne diagnostics

 

Before acne treatment, it may be sufficient to conduct a visual examination. The diagnosis is established when the cause of the disease is identified, for which certain medical procedures are carried out:

  • Blood test with emphasis on hormones (FSH, free forms of testosterone, LH, estradiol, testosterone, androstenediol)
  • Biochemical blood test
  • Test for intestinal dysbiosis
  • Ultrasound examination of the pelvic area and adrenal glands
  • Bacteriological examination
  • Swab test
  • Biopsy (taking tissue for histological examination)
  • Skin testing for allergies

Dermatoscopy (reflected light microscopy) is another method that is widely used in dermatology, in particular, in the framework of preventive screening for cancer. This study allows a detailed examination of superficial skin neoplasms. As part of oncological diagnostics, instrumental methods such as CT scan, MRI, PET are widely used in hospitals of Berlin.

An integral part of diagnostics in German hospitals is various laboratory tests, including bacteriological and mycological tests, histological examination of skin samples, and various blood tests.

Treatment of acne in Germany

 

The acne treatment is complex. The main task of acne treatment is to provide maximum care for skin problems.

Acne treatment is a rather gradual process, which includes the use of several external medications. Typically, the full course takes about 3 months, after which the patient undergoes re-diagnosis with appropriate tests. Sometimes people turn to active acne treatment themselves, which is highly discouraged. Acne should not be considered a mild and strictly cosmetic issue, since it can contribute to the appearance of various infectious diseases in the body.

Acne treatment is not based on medication alone though. First and foremost, for the start of the acne treatment, the effect of aggressive compounds should be excluded such as alcohol-containing and glycerin-containing skincare products. At the same time, skin cleansing is necessary, but for this purpose, it is better to use gentle and certified cleansing products, including antibacterial ones.

Among popular dermatology treatments, Germany offers:

  • External treatments. This therapy aims to shrink the sebaceous glands and reduce the number of bacteria in them. This therapy can cause dry skin and redness at first. Nevertheless, these symptoms go away, as a rule, after 1-2 weeks and are not considered contraindications to the further use of the method.
  • Internal antibiotics. In cases with deep penetration of acne nodes, external influence on the affected tissues is not enough. The medical community of Berlin notes that in this case, additional internal therapy should be prescribed.
  • Treating with ultraviolet light. This therapy helps to shrink the sebaceous glands and reduce inflammation.
  • Additional medications.
  • Laser therapy.
  • Ozone therapy (ozone face shower). Ozone therapy improves blood flow to the skin and promotes self-cleaning.

When local treatment is insufficient, systemic therapy is indicated. It is also prescribed for the relief of psychological stress associated with acne, as well as in suspicion of a severe stage of the disease. The choice of medication depends on the severity of the disease, the success of the acne treatment, and the specifics of each individual case.

Scar treatment complicates acne treatment. Scar treatment is only possible when the acne process itself can be controlled. Superficial scars or pigmentation may heal on their own, but if they don’t, it is necessary to start the treatment as early as possible.

Within the entire field of dermatology, special attention in Germany is paid to the treatment of skin tumors, such as:

  • Malignant melanoma
  • Basal-cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma

Other areas of dermatology in Germany include:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the structures adjacent to the skin (for example, hair treatment – trichology)
  • Allergology
  • Dermatologic surgery
  • Venereology
  • Cosmetic or aesthetic dermatology

Plastic surgery can be considered a related branch of dermatology.

Dermatology in Germany is represented in clinics of various levels: diagnostics and treatment of various skin diseases are offered both in specialized departments of multidisciplinary (including university) clinics and in private dermatological hospitals. The choice of the medical facility is determined by various factors, including the complexity of acne treatment.

According to the German online portal Volksstimme, hospitals in Berlin offer a therapy in which healthy bacteria are injected into the affected skin of patients. The successful practice of treating the intestines has become a model for this method, which shows that healthy bacteria can displace harmful ones. With this therapy, acne was treated in 80% of cases.

Berlin hospitals point out that the most important thing in prescribing acne treatment is, of course, an individual approach.

Acne treatment takes time. The started therapy must be continued for at least 6 weeks, only then can the chosen tactics can be changed or the whole treatment can be interrupted if serious complications arise.

The goal of therapy is to heal acne before the scarring stage. Acne treatment is aimed at reducing the production of sebum, normalizing the processes of rejuvenation, and is aimed against infections caused by bacteria.
