How Acne affects Men’s confidence and how you can treat it

Men, like women, are also susceptible to skin damage and may encounter skin issues such as blemishes or, even worse, scars on their faces. A blemish is defined as any noticeable imperfection that alters something’s appearance. While “blemish” can be used to describe virtually any mark or spot, in skincare, it usually refers to acne. Acne can cause low self-esteem levels and affect an individual’s confidence. Acne is a common problem faced by millions worldwide, and most men don’t follow a skin care routine, which inevitably makes their skin look dull. Every man needs to be confident, and this article will help spell out this issue for our readers.

What are acne scars?

Acne scars are usually caused by blemishes that get inflamed because their pores are full of oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Whenever the pores of your skin become blocked with excessive oil, bacteria, or dead skin, there are more chances of the occurrence of acne, which leads to acne scars.

Here are some reasons that cause scars:

Excessive production of oil by your follicles.

Accumulation of dead skin cells in your pores.

Building of bacteria

Acne scars occur due to inflamed lesions.

Treatment at Dermapurity’s, Gurgaon

I visited Dermapurity’s clinic located on Golf Course Road, DLF Phase 1, Gurgaon, for acne treatment and consultation on acne scars accumulated due to a variety of reasons. After getting an appointment, Dr Gargi Taneja, MBBS, MD (Dermatology), and consultant dermatologist and aesthetic physician at Dermapurity’s, consulted me. After going through my acne scars, she suggested a few skin treatments to lessen the visibility of acne scars that had accumulated over time. As I wanted a basic and not very expensive treatment, Dr Taneja recommended the Insta Glow facial, which cost around 5000 INR (inclusive of taxes), which I undertook. The procedure was simple, and the doctor, with the help of an assistant, did the treatment. The 1-hour session was not very tiring, and it actually felt soothing. I could sense healthier-looking skin in the morning and an instant glow on my skin. Dermapurity’s clinic had a very nice ambience and friendly staff. Dr. Taneja suggested a few more sessions, which I look forward to.

Acne Scars treatment 

Acne scars are scary. They can lower our self-esteem and affect our attitude and confidence. Pimple scars are best treated by a practicing dermatologist, who is the only one who has the real authority to suggest treatments after analyzing your skin. There are a range of products available in markets that guarantee acne removal, but our skin doesn’t respond well. It’s best if you consult a dermatologist, who, after screening your skin, can suggest the best treatments.


It’s a fact that men do have skin concerns, and at most times they are helpless. Men too want that perfect-looking skin, and for that, we recommend you visit a dermatologist. We recommend visiting Dr. Gargi Taneja at Dermapuritys in Gurgaon, whose experience and expertise in this domain will help men get perfect skin.
