What is acne? Importantly please remember that you are not alone most people will suffer with the condition at some time during their life. But what is acne? Starting with the oil glands at the base of the hair follicle, which produce an oily fluid called sebum, it then transports the dead skin to the surface, which then clogs and grows its spot.

Whilst acne is particularly annoying in puberty due to the changes in hormone levels, anyone

at any age can be affected. In fact by estimation 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 have outbreaks along the way. Whilst the common problems are caused by spots acne can also cause oily skin, a rise in the temperature of the skin and also make the skin painful to touch. Generally, most spots as a result of acne are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.

WHAT YOU MAY SEE IF YOU HAVE ACNE

Here are the 6 most obvious signs.

Blackheads

Blackheads appear as small black or yellow bumps on the skin. Their colouring is not due to dirt and grime, but instead, are black as a result of the hair follicle producing pigmentation.

Whiteheads

Generally much firmer to touch than blackheads, but will fail to empty when squeezed. They come as a result of dead skin cells, oil or other types of bacteria becoming trapped within your pores.

Papules

Papules appear as small red bumps, and are hard to the touch. When you have a cluster of papules together, the skin can feel very rough on the surface.

Pustules

Pustules generally makes the skin bulge out, and are a spot full of pus. They are quite similar to papules, with a white tip in the centre (due to pus build-up).

Nodules

These painful, hard bumps form beneath the surface of the skin.

Cysts

Cysts are the most severe spot type that is caused by acne, appearing as pus-filled lumps, and are similar in appearance to boils.

Below is a list of some of the available treatments for consideration but it may be that a selection of these treatments will be used in one course of treatments.

Micro-Dermabrasion For Acne

A chemical and laser free skin rejuvenation treatment utilising medical grade crystals to treat both active acne and mild acne scarring. This acne treatment helps to unclog your pores by removing dead skin cells and reducing pore oil levels to clear up your acne. This can be combined with other treatments to speed up the clearing of acne. Pregnant or breast feeding

Chemical Peels For Acne

Chemical Peels are used to take off the top layer of skin, both rejuvenating and producing new skin. The peels that we use are much stronger and more effective than those you could access yourself, helping to successfully unclog pores, and improve skin texture by producing new skin production. Not only does this acne treatment help to treat acne scars, but also hyperpigmentation.

MICRO-NEEDLING For Acne

The Micro needling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a type of treatment which is effective in improving the appearance of mild to moderate acne scarring. It works by damaging the skin through minor punctures, and then in the healing process the skin produces more collagen. The production of collagen helps to smooth out the appearance of the skin and improve the look and feel of acne scars.

LED LIGHT THERAPY For Acne

LED light therapy treatment is generally used in combination with other acne treatments. The use of light helps with skin’s natural process of rejuvenation and repair, making it excellent for acne as well as spot-prone skin. It’s a fully pain-free treatment, perfect for sensitive, acne-prone skin.

Fillers For Acne

Filler can be used to help improve the appearance of acne scars. We use fillers to fill in craters left by acne, leaving an overall smoother appearance on the skin. Whilst this is a highly effective treatment to improve the appearance of acne scarring, it is not a treatment for active acne and as the effects are only temporary, a top of fillers will be required.

PRP Therapy For Acne

Otherwise known as the vampire facial, this non-invasive procedure makes use of the patient’s own blood mixed with a product to promote collagen growth underneath the skin. The result? A brighter, smooth and more rejuvenated appearance which improves the look of acne scars on the face.
