Acne affects approximately 80% of the population at some point in our lives. Whether you are affected as a teenager or adult, acne is a medical condition that can adversely affect the emotional and physical well-being of an individual.
With the help of our expert Dermatologists, acne and its complications, can be successfully managed.
Acne occurs when oil and dead skin cells become trapped within oil glands, creating a blockage. This blockage can result in inflammation within the glands resulting in a red, painful or pustular spot or nodule. Acne, when severe, can result in scarring of the skin.
There are a number of factors that can affect Acne including:
- Hormonal disorders
- Certain jobs
If you are concerned about your Acne and would like to arrange an appointment with one of our Dermatologists to assess your skin condition and provide the best treatment plan for you, please send through a referral from your GP.
