Acne Face, Back & Scarring
Acne is one of the most common conditions we see in our clinic. If your acne is making you feel self-conscious, or if breakouts are causing you pain, then our range of treatments can leave your skin feeling soothed and you feeling confident by tackling the acne at its source.
What is acne?
There are two types of acne: inflammatory and non-inflammatory.
Non-inflammatory acne occurs when oil and dead cells clog the pores in your skin. This causes blackheads or whiteheads to develop, which tends to be painless, whereas inflammatory acne can be much more painful. Inflammatory breakouts tend to be red and, in some cases, will have a white “head” to them. Depending on the severity, they may become hard to touch and very tender.
Inflammatory acne can be sore and as we’ve heard from people we’ve treated, can make people feel self-conscious. It can also leave permanent scars behind in some cases. Inflammatory acne is caused by the imbalance of androgen and oestrogen hormones. Over-production of the male hormones (androgen) or a reduction in female hormones (oestrogen) causes a surge of production of sebum, which deposits itself into the follicle. Over-the-counter creams don’t usually work in this situation, so alternative treatments such as those that we offer are usually explored.
Acne appears differently for different people, not always breaking out on the face. Some cases might be on the back (bacne) and shoulders, and it may affect you in later life, even though you didn’t suffer as a teenager. Whatever your situation, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about, and we’re here to help you find the right solution.
