TORONTO ACNE TREATMENT
Acne is caused by an over production of sebum – an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands. Hormonal changes due to puberty are the most common cause of acne. But other events such as pregnancy can also cause a change in hormones. Sebaceous glands release their oil into the follicles. When there is an over-production of the sebaceous glands these oils will block the follicle. As excess sebum is produced these clogged pores and follicles will grow larger and become inflamed. In sever cases these blocked pores can become injured and pustules can form.
