Acne is frequent both during teenage years and in adulthood. It seems to be becoming more frequent among adults, with almost 30% of 20 year olds and 20% of 30 year olds suffering with recurring outbreaks.
The first step to treating acne is to determine how active it is and what the potential cause is. Our consultant dermatologists will work with you to eliviate the symptoms and treat the underlying problem.
The type of acne you have can be classified as either comedonal which manifests itself with numerous blackheads and skin-coloured bumps, or inflammatory where there are red spots and puss heads. Untreated acne can lead to the formation of cysts and sever scarring.
Our consultant dermatologists will work with you to determine the cause of the acne, as an appropriate treatment cannot be determined without first determining the cause.
Treatments span the gamut of skin care products to chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
