A small point of adipose tissue adherence to the skin may appear in a single specimen, in rare cases, focal lesions of fatty acids appear on the face.

Reasons for the formation of WenWars

Doctors-dermatologists can not give an exact answer, why under the skin sometimes accumulate particles of fat and fat, clogging the pores and leading to the formation of adipocytes.They can meet on the face of a person of any age and social status.

  • increased congenital fatiness of the skin on the face.The type of skin largely determines the problems that can subsequently appear with it;
  • hereditary predisposition to the formation of adipose, acne and comedones.In some cases, a gene that influences the intensity of sebum secretion by the body is inherited;
  • various stages of atherosclerosis, elevated blood cholesterol level, a metabolic disorder that is responsible for lipid metabolism;
  • pathology of the liver and kidney;
  • disorders of blood and lymph circulation often lead to inadequate nutrition of the skin and the removal of harmful, polluting substances.This leads to clogging of pores, follicles and the formation of lipid deposits under the skin;
  • dysfunction of the endocrine system, diseases and processes that change the hormonal background in the body;
  • neglect of the rules of personal hygiene, insufficient purity of the skin, the use of aggressive decorative cosmetics, irritating the skin and provoking epidermis on the excessive protective separation of sebum;
