Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point in their lives. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that's hot or painful to touch. It is the most common skin condition with nearly 85% of people experiencing it at some point in their lives. We understand how acne can create such a distressing physical and emotional effect that leaves individuals feeling self-conscious.
During an initial consultation we assess the severity of your acne and tailor an individual treatment plan employing a combination of treatments and products to soothe acne and compose clear skin.
Acne presents itself as:
blackheads – small black bumps that develop on the skin and appear black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation
whiteheads – small white bumps that are similar to blackheads
papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore
pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus
nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful
cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they're large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring
