Acne Treatment

Acne affects more than your skin. We understand how even the mildest breakout can negatively impact your self-confidence and self-esteem. Acne can range from the occasional pimple to extreme, ongoing breakouts that might go on for several years. Severe breakouts have been linked to anxiety and depression in studies. While there is no cure for acne, we have the expertise, experience, and devices necessary to get it under control with our range of acne treatments.

Key Things To Know About Acne?

Three processes in the skin can lead to the formation of acne:

  • Dead skin cells collect and clog your pores
  • Sebaceous glands produce too much oil in the follicles
  • Bacteria builds up in your pores, leading to breakouts

Acne is not an infection of the skin, but an inflammatory condition. Factors that can increase your likelihood of a breakout include:

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Stress
  • Mechanical causes such as makeup or dirt accumulated during a workout
  • Diet (studies have suggested foods such as milk and refined, processed foods that contribute to a high glycemic diet may result in acne)
Acne can develop almost anywhere on the body and most commonly appears on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. While blackheads and whiteheads (also known as comedones) are the most common acne lesions, other types can develop as well. Inflammatory lesions like these are the most likely to leave scarring behind:
  • Papules – small, red, and raised bumps, may be tender but often are not
  • Pustules – small, red pimples containing white or yellow pus, can be tender
  • Nodules – solid, inflamed, often painful lumps beneath the skin’s surface
  • Cysts – large, soft, usually painful lumps containing pus deep beneath the skin’s surface

What is acne?

Acne is caused when the pores of your skin become blocked with bacteria, oil or dead skin. Each pore on your skin leads to a hair follicle and sebaceous (oil) gland. Oil glands release sebum (oil) which travel up the hair through the pore and onto the surface of your skin. Poor hygiene doesn’t cause acne, however, cleansing your skin daily and exfoliating weekly can prevent pores from becoming blocked.

What are the causes of acne?

Puberty and hormonal changes the most common factors. Also, stress can be a cause, as can the skincare products you are using, or it could simply be down to genetics. Women are much more likely to suffer from acne due to hormones – this includes pregnancy, during your period, or if you suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Will acne be cured?

There is no definite cure for acne. Our aim is to improve and control your symptoms as best we can. It can sometimes take a long time to clear so we will work with you continually to find the best course of treatment. We also see some clients who see amazing results in just a few weeks.

Will acne go away on its own?

During teenage years, it can often go away on its own. However adult acne is much less likely to clear. But this will always vary person to person and you should always be aware of the risk of scarring, so if you are concerned, always seek medical advice.
