Acne affects adults as well as teenagers, but it is more common during the high hormonal activity of adolescence. It can occur anywhere on the epidermis where there are hair follicles below the surface, including the face, back and neck. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands become clogged with sebum, an oily substance whose normal collection and excretion keeps the skin healthy. If clogged, bacteria can grow in the glands, which in turn causes swelling and pimpling on the skin’s surface.

Treatment for Acne

There are a number of approaches to treating acne and the scarring it often leaves behind. These include topical treatments, antibiotics, blue light and laser therapy.

At Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic laser therapy is considered a safe and increasingly effective treatment for acne, including blue light. Chemical skin peels may also be useful helping to manage and improve the condition. Diet is also an important consideration.

Always the first step in a treatment plan for acne is a thorough consultation. The doctor will examine your skin, recommend the best type of therapy, which may include a combination of treatments, and work out a long-term plan for improving your condition.
