Understanding Acne

Think about Louis XIV, the Sun King of France, who ruled in the 17th century. He didn’t have acne. He had smallpox. But the effect was the same – damaged skin, embarrassment, and frustration. Acne is a common skin condition. It happens when your hair follicles get plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples.

Why Acne Happens

Do you remember the famous Einstein’s quote: “God does not play dice with the universe”? Well, acne doesn’t play dice with your skin either. It’s not about luck. It’s about hormones, bacteria, inflammation, and blocked pores. These are the common triggers. They can happen to anyone, at any age.

How We Can Help

Let’s go back in time. Not to Louis XIV, but to 1920. This was the year when doctor John H. Stokes and doctor Donald M. Pillsbury proposed a gut-brain-skin theory. They suggested that emotional states might alter the normal intestinal microflora. This could lead to increased intestinal permeability and thus contribute to skin inflammation.

Fast forward to today. We know a lot more about acne. We can confirm that acne is not only about your skin. It’s also about your lifestyle, your diet, and your mental health. And this is how we can help. At Magnolia Dermatology, we don’t just treat the symptoms. We aim to treat the cause.
