Anabolic steroids can cause the development of acne. However, the extent to which it is experienced can be due to a number of varying factors, with the particular steroids and exact dosages used being primary. The skin´s sebaceous glands have a particularly high affinity to Dihydrotestosterone, which is an androgen the body naturally produces from testosterone via the enzyme 5-alpha Reductase. Increased sebaceous gland activity promotes oily skin which can combine with bacteria and dead skin (normal wear and tear) eventually causing pores to become clogged more quickly than the body can cleanse them. This of course, is preventable by using only particular steroids, cleansing the skin regularly, and perhaps using a topical anti-androgen.
This is surgery done through a small “keyhole” cut (incision) in the bellybutton. The advantage of this technique is that surgeons don’t need to cut through as much tissue as when they make a longer incision. Your child or teen is likely to have less pain and to recover faster. This means returning sooner to school, sports or other activities. This technique leaves only a small scar, which you may not even be able to see, on the outside of the bellybutton. It also causes less scar tissue inside. So it is less likely to affect fertility. Gynecologic surgery is used most often to treat ovarian cysts and pelvic pain.
