Acne Clinic

Introduction

In our acne clinic, we provide practical advice on preventing and treating the condition. Acne starts in the early teens with most people, the pubescent years. However, it can affect anyone at any age, and if a family member suffers, you may be prone.

Can acne cause scarring?

Yes, acne can cause scarring; the good news is that for most, it will not. A simple pimple, if not picked, is unlikely to scar. However, scaring will occur if you allow the acne to go untreated. Acne comes typically in stages; first, it’s the black or whitehead, then the red pimple with puss. And finally, the deeply infected pore called cystic acne. The scarring results from the damage the deep-rooted infection does to the skin.

What causes acne?

Many factors may cause acne, including hormones, diet and external pollutants. Hormones are a common factor frequently causing outbreaks in the teenage years (puberty) and when stressed. A diet high in sugar can be another aggravating factor. Finally, pollutants aggravate the skin externally. Makeup tends to block the skin’s pores over time, leading to infection.  

 

Is it possible to treat scars?

The good news is that the appearance of the scar can be reduced or got rid of altogether. However, it depends on the type and severity of the scarring. The first action is to book in for a free consultation, where the skin specialist will be able to assess your skin before recommending a suitable treatment plan.

How to treat acne?

In our skin clinic, we initially restore the skin’s health by cleaning out the blocked or infected pores and then treating the skin’s pores with a solution that will kill any active bacteria and maintain the skin’s health. Also, it’s essential to follow the daily skincare routine that will be prescribed and continue the regular treatment program. Regular treatment will help you keep the acne under control and reduce the risk of scarring.

What products and treatments do we use?

As a medical-based clinic, we use high-quality cosmeceutical products such as ZO Skincare and Circadia. Along with award-winning treatments such as Hydrafacial.
