Acne is a very common skin condition and can be quite distressing for those suffering from it. It can affect anyone regardless of age and gender. Some of the forms of acne are whiteheads, blackheads and cysts. Acne arises when oil and dead skin cells become trapped within an enlarged oil gland. This blockage is referred to as a comedone. When a comedone becomes inflamed, (which is often due to bacteria that resides in the skin) the comedone will turn into acne. There are many different factors aside from bacteria that contribute to acne formation such as genetics and hormones.
At Revita skin clinic we focus on fighting the source of the breakouts with a combination of treatments and at home skin care regime. The treatments we recommend for acne are:
- Jessner Peel
- Advanced Microdermabrasion
After acne has been resolved often we are left with scarring where the acne used to be. To treat acne scarring we recommend a skin needling treatment.
