In our life, (and this, at any age, you will quickly understand), we can go through phases of acne where pimples and imperfections burst on our face. It depresses us, it itches, our face is dry, thirsty for solutions and we can't necessarily identify what acne it is. Have you ever thought about microcystic acne? In this article, the Nubiance team explains everything about this type of acne and offers you solutions to get rid of your pimples and avoid scars afterwards!
What is microcystic acne?
Blackheads speak to you. You have it on the T-zone of the face (forehead, eyebrows, nose, chin), and for that, you know that ACT-5 is the (miracle) product you need! But what about the whiteheads (that's it, we can already imagine you rolling your eyes). Now is the time to get interested in microcystic acne, be prepared! According to the periods of our life and according to several factors mentioned on the origins of acne, our skin can produce an overproduction of sebum which will clog the pores and will create these inflammations that you know well, namely:
Without going into details (because we know that the terms used will lose you and not advance you further on the subject), we would like to explain to you, in our own words, how to recognize this acne. Microcystic acne on your black, dark or mixed skin could be reduced to pimples "under the skin" which look like granules but whose tip is not white and does not contain pus." It is caused by accumulation in the hair follicle of sebum and keratin which cannot come out and flow out". If these pimples can go unnoticed by those around you, we can guess your dissatisfaction when you see them appear because they create relief on your skin and give you a feeling of dermis that is neither smooth nor clean. A category of so-called severe acne whose persistence is more resistant and its appearance more insidious.
How to recognize your microcystic acne?
We explained it to you in this article, to start treating your acne and before finding solutions, it is essential to know the causes and origin of your pimples.
To do this, several solutions are available to you: keep a diary by noting the periods when your acne is most evident (this may be your menstrual cycle), note the types of food that give you acne and stay tuned to your skin and the changes it is undergoing (diet, lifestyle, lack of a beauty routine, need for hydration, etc.)
But when it comes to microcysts, it's easy to recognize: You don't have pimples that are red or contain pus, and they may appear invisible to others. However, when you pass your hand (clean, to avoid any risk), you feel granules or like small balls hard to the touch. These are indeed microcysts.
In general, microcysts arise on very specific areas of the face: the cheeks, the forehead, the chin and around the lips.
If you want to verify that it is indeed microcystic acne, take a lamp (your phone's flash also works), and see if it creates small hard balls, without it being red or white.
If your skin is bumpy and it's not scars or dark spots, you could very well be suffering from this category of acne. But don't panic, the Nubiance team has come together to find solutions for you and make these pustules disappear on your pretty black, matte or mixed face.
What solutions for microcystic acne?
First, don't touch. Like, really don't touch it at all. Apart from a specialist, who could clean the skin using a small incision. Don't worry, the doctor in question is able to perform this type of operation and will take care to protect your skin as well as possible to limit scars and inflammation. Its objective is to "open" the micro cyst slightly to extract its contents and empty it of its bad bacteria. To avoid skin infection, he will disinfect your pimples throughout the session and explain to you what to do next. Note that you should not plan a date for the coming days because your skin may be very red and that makeup is strongly discouraged to avoid clogging your pores. Cleansing the skin for mycrocystic acne should be done once a quarter so as not to attack the skin too much. However, the disadvantages of this type of solution should be noted. The price can be high (ranging from 100 to 200€ for a session), time is required depending on your type of acne and the condition of your skin (it is better to count 1h to 1h30), and the scars may persist if the doctor in question has not been able to properly heal your pimples and disinfect them sufficiently. So many reasons to go to a person who is used to carrying out this type of experience!
Adopt the right gestures
We'll make it short because you already know the principle: you don't touch your pimples or your microcysts. Although very tempting because they are invisible, you risk (99%) creating a secondary infection and ending up with a red pimple when the "granule" looked tiny at first glance. You will also inevitably have scars, which, as we know, becomes problematic on your black, matte or mixed skin, because your phototype makes you more marked than another category of skin (it's always unfair, we know! ). We also think about cleaning your smartphone well (especially at this time), because it is on the surface that all the bacteria will migrate and give you pimples on your cheeks. Pillowcases and linens also need to be washed very, very often to avoid accumulating dirt and therefore clogging your pores.
