Acne

Aa condition which can effect people of all ages

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people at some point in their life, and while more common in teenagers, it can affect many adults as well. It causes spots, oily skin, and can sometimes lead to scarring and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

There are different types of acne including whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, nodules, and cystic lesions. 

Acne can be hereditary but also can be caused by other factors such as excess sebum (oil) production in the follicles and also bacteria and hormones.

Acne most often affects the face, but it may spread to involve the neck, chest, and back. It can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being, especially if it results in scarring. Acne is a common condition we see in our clinic and one which responds well to treatment. 

Our therapists use a combination of medical grade skincare as well as lasers and light therapy with the Dermalux Triwave MD.
