Causes & Symptoms

Acne is a common skin condition that results in the appearance of unsightly spots and unbalanced skin. This condition can cause redness, inflammation, and even make the skin hot to the touch. Acne most commonly occurs on the face, however, many of acne suffers experience it on the back or chest area. Acne can be triggered when certain hormones cause the sebaceous glands in your skin to produce too much oil. This excess oil causes a normally harmless bacteria to flare up, resulting in skin inflammation and spots. During an acne outbreak the lining of the hair follicle can becomes thicker, causing blocked pores.

Frequently asked questions

What should you avoid?

If you are suffering from acne, it is very important to resist the temptation to squeeze your spots, as this might aggravate them. Try to avoid strong products and very hot or very cold water, as these are also likely to make an outbreak worse; use lukewarm water with a mild cleansing product instead. Avoid over cleansing the affected areas and make sure you get professional advice when choosing your makeup products. Finally removing your makeup completely before you go to bed and following a consistent skincare regime is crucial to get your healthy and balanced complexion back.

Can I get rid of acne scarring?

Yes, the appearance of all types of acne scarring can be reduced with laser and microneedling treatments which stimulates the production of collagen to promote natural skin-healing. Other treatments for acne are also effective at treating acne scarring, including light treatments and chemical peels.
