Acne

Acne

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. There are few long term proven light therapy solutions for acne so our emphasis is on treating post-inflammatory scarring and blemishes.

Symptoms

What is Acne Treatment?

Acne treatment involves a range of procedures aimed at managing plugged hair follicles, whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples characterised by the skin condition. These treatments target these factors causing acne: excess oil production, clogged hair follicles, and bacteria. Effective acne treatment addresses current skin blemishes and seeks to prevent future outbreaks and reduce the risk of scarring.

What Causes Acne?

Four key factors primarily cause acne:

  • Excess Oil Production: Overactive sebaceous glands produce more oil than the skin needs.
  • Clogged Hair Follicles: These occur due to oil accumulation and dead skin cells.
  • Bacteria: The presence of bacteria in pores can lead to inflammation and acne.
  • Hormonal Activity: Androgens, a type of hormone, can increase in adolescence, leading to acne.

Types of Acne

Acne manifests in various forms, each requiring a tailored approach:

  • Whiteheads: Closed plugged follicles.
  • Blackheads: Open plugged follicles that turn brown when exposed to air.
  • Pimples: Red, tender bumps with white centres.
  • Cystic Lesions: Painful, pus-filled lumps beneath the skin’s surface.
