Acne Q&A 


What is acne?

Acne occurs when hair follicles get clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. As a result, inflammation develops, and a pimple appears.

Each hair follicle (more commonly known as facial pores) contains glands that release an oily substance called sebum. Sebum softens and moisturizes your skin, but when you produce too much, it gets trapped inside the follicle, creating the clog responsible for acne.

Acne has several forms, including:

Whiteheads and blackheads

Whiteheads and blackheads occur in a blocked pore (follicle) that’s not inflamed. The difference is that whiteheads are in a closed pore, while blackheads develop when the pore is open.


Pimples are small, red, inflamed areas (papules) arising from the follicle. They’re called pustules if they’re filled with pus.


Nodules are large, hard lumps that stay beneath the surface, usually lasting longer than most pimples.


Cysts, a severe form of inflammatory acne, are painful, pus-filled nodules.


What causes acne?

Hormones that increase oil production are the top cause. The hormonal changes at puberty explain why so many teens struggle with acne. Poor skincare habits also increase your chances of developing acne. Additionally, carbohydrates and sugary foods may contribute to this common skin condition.


How is acne treated?

Physicians treat acne with several topical and oral medications, and hormonal treatments, and may use lasers or photo therapy. But if you have inflammatory acne, whether pimples, nodules, or cysts, you owe it to yourself to learn about treatment with the Plason device.

Plason is a handheld device that sends electrically charged plasma into your skin, causing changes in the cell membranes and triggering numerous cellular reactions.

Most importantly, the plasma reaches and kills bacteria, including those responsible for inflamed acne. Treatment with Plason cleanses and sterilizes your skin at the cellular level, often promoting rapid acne healing.

One treatment only takes 15-30 minutes, and most people see their acne begin to improve within 1-2 sessions. 

Plason doesn’t cause side effects or require downtime. It’s safe for all ages and every skin type. You can also use plasma treatment while you take oral acne medications.
