What is Acne?

Acne is a common condition which occurs when hair follicles (pores) become blocked with sebum (oil) and dead skin cells. This skin condition often causes whiteheads, blackheads or spots.

Who can get Acne? And, When could I get Acne?

Anybody can get acne at any stage in their life, from adolescent age right up to old age.  Usually the cause of Acne will differ.

How is Acne formed?

Acne is caused by 3 major factors:

  1. Hair follicles (pores) are blocked by dead skin cells,
  2. Overproduction of sebum
  3. Proliferation of P.Acne bacteria and consequent inflammation.

Where can I get Acne?

Acne is most common on the face, though can also appear on the back, shoulders, neck and/or chest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! These can include whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, papules, nodules and cysts.  Each one looks slightly different and has been formed by different factors.

Are there different types of Acne severity?

Yes! Dermatologists rate them on a scale of Grade 1 to 4. The higher the grading the more severe the acne.

Is Acne caused by having Oily skin?

Yes and No. Acne can be cause by overproduction of sebum though other skin types such as Dry Skin or Normal Skin can still get breakouts.

How do you get rid of Acne?

There are lots of different ways to help Acne breakouts though it helps to determine the cause of the Acne first.

You can use these basic steps to help:

  1. Gentle exfoliation to remove cell build up
  2. Reduce P.Acne Bacteria
  3. Control Sebum Production
  4. Repair skin texture and tone
  5. Protect against inflammation and UV damage

How do I know if I have Acne?

A GP will be able to help diagnose whether you have acne. At Dr Aesthetica, our skin specialist will be able to help support you in the interim.

What can I do to help my Acne?

There are several things that can be done which include topical and oral medications. Though, some patients may choose not to have medical intervention with Acne. This is where Skin Peels and Medical Microneedling can help.

What else do I need to know?

There is very little downtime with Skin Peels or Microneedling, though these will be discussed with you. An aftercare kit is given post treatment which is to be used as instructed.

Is Adult Acne real?

Yes and it can sometimes be referred to as Adult Acne and Teenage Acne.

Adult skin produces less oil, has a slower rate of cell turnover and heals slower too, whereas Teenage skin is the opposite.

Treatment for Acne: Microneedling/ Skin peels/ Homecare

Acne can be treated with skin peels, Microneedling and/or homecare. Acne occurs when hair follicles (also known as pores) become blocked with dead skin and oil, leading to whiteheads, blackheads or spots.Treatments such as Microneedling and skin peels help turnover new skin cells and help eliminate any dead skin cells by reducing the pore size and stimulating new tissues and restoring the skin texture and tone.
