ACNE

Healthy skin for every tone and type

Acne is a common condition. Although it is primarily a cosmetic concern, it can also cause huge emotional problems.Effective treatments are available. At Health & Aesthetics we treat a large number of patients, from throughout Surrey and Hampshire, suffering from either acne or acne scarring.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

There are a number of factors that can lead to acne such as a hormonal imbalance, stress, make-up and possibly diet. Teenagers are particularly prone to developing acne during puberty. The condition can range from mild to severe.

FAQ

There are four steps involved in the development of Acne:

Increased production of sebum (an oily substance secreted by glands in the skin)
Blockage of pores by dead skin cells.
Invasion of the blocked pores by bacteria
Inflammation of the skin
The skin has lots of small sebaceous glands just below the surface. These glands make sebum – a natural oil that keeps the skin smooth. Tiny pores in the skin allow the sebum to come to the surface. If you are prone to acne, hormones may trigger the sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum.

At the same time, the dead skin cells lining the openings of the hair follicles aren’t shed properly and clog up the follicles. This build-up of oil in the hair follicles creates an ideal environment for bacteria to grow, which feed off the sebum and produce substances that inflame the skin. This creates spots and the redness associated with acne.

In more severe, inflammatory acne, cysts can develop beneath the skin’s surface. If these cysts rupture the infection can spread which can result in scarring. To avoid this, acne needs be treated early and effectively.
