Pimple Surgery

Pimples develop from clogged pours. Clogged pours can result from numerous things and conditions. The most common are hormonal changes and greasy skin products. Some pimples require surgery, although this method of treatment is rare. Cortisone injections are certainly safer than pimple surgery, but in some case, not effective. Pimples that are large or deep may not respond to cortisone. When cortisone proves to be ineffective, patients may need to have pimple surgery. The incisions from the surgery may leave a small scar. The best way to avoid pimple surgery is to keep your skin clean, stay healthy and avoid stress. Factors like genetic can't be altered, but the acne should be aggressively treated when it first starts to develop.
