Acne is a common skin condition caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce excess oil, leading to blocked pores, scaly red skin, pimples, black heads, and white heads. In severe cases, it can result in cystic acne, which forms deeper skin lesions known as cysts or nodules. Acne often affects the face, upper chest, and back due to a higher density of sebaceous glands in these areas.

While acne typically appears during adolescence, it can persist into adulthood, affecting both children and older individuals. Acne can be unpredictable, and it’s challenging to determine when it will completely clear. Acne scar treatment is essential to prevent scarring, alleviate inflammation and discomfort, reduce the formation of new blackheads and whiteheads, and minimise the emotional distress that acne can cause.

Acne scarring can be treated with Fraxel, Smartxide, Accupulse, Microlaser Peel, Chemical Peels, and Morpheus8, to reduce scaring improve collagen production and refresh pigmented skin.

HydraFacial can then be used to maintain the skin, cleansing and infusing the skin with nutrients reducing future acne breakouts and we can advise regarding cosmeceuticals and recommend Joddor skin treatment.
