Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, with millions of people experiencing occasional breakouts or persistent pimples. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, it can creep up at any time without warning. The good news is we have a range of acne-busting treatments that get to the root of the problem and eliminate the most stubborn spots forever, leaving your skin smooth, clear and healthy.
WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that occurs when the pores of the skin are blocked by dead skin cells and oil, resulting in various types of spots. The six main types of spots include blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. These can range from tiny and firm bumps to large painful lesions filled with pus. Acne most commonly occurs on the face, followed by the chest, upper back and shoulders. If left untreated, it can cause long-term or permanent scarring.
WHAT CAUSES ACNE
Acne occurs when the skin’s pores are blocked by excess sebum (oil) and dead skin cells. The sebaceous gland is responsible for oil production, but certain factors cause it to overproduce the substance, like fluctuating hormone levels and genetics. Because of this, acne is most widespread among teenagers, those with parents who suffer from the condition, and women who are pregnant, on their menstrual cycle or have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). What's more, acne can be exacerbated by harmless bacteria that naturally live on the skin - this causes infection and more severe pimples like nodules or cysts.
