However, acne is nothing to worry about and for many people, is something that they will experience whilst growing up.
What are the causes of acne?
Whilst acne has a wide range of different causes, it is commonly linked to changes in the hormone levels in your body, commonly be experienced during puberty. However, it can start at any age. It is caused by the grease producing glands in your body, which are next to hair follicles in the skin which produces larger amounts of oil.
This increases the activity from harmless skin bacterium, causing them to become more aggressive which results in inflammation and pus that is usually associated with acne. In addition to this, the hormones also thicken the inner lining of the hair follicle, which results in the blocking of your pores which cannot be treated by cleaning the skin.
Acne is known to be genetic. If one of your parents had acne or both, it is more likely that you will develop acne whilst growing up.
Significant hormonal changes, such as those that occur during puberty, pregnancy or the menstrual cycle can cause acne to develop in women.
Although commonly believe, there is no evidence that diet, poor hygiene or sexual activity play any role in the development of acne.
No matter your cause, our team of professionals can provide you with the treatment that you need to treat your acne. We believe that you should not let your acne control you. Instead, we can provide you with a wide range of different treatments to help you recover, all of which can be specially tailored to your unique circumstances.
Who is most affected by ache?
Acne is very common in teenagers and younger adults. Statistics suggest that around 95% of people between the ages of 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent. In particular, between the ages of 14 to 17 girls are more likely to develop acne, whilst boys between the ages of 16 to 19 are also prone.
In general, these symptoms will last for several years before any symptoms start to improve and often cannot be treated completely. During the mid 20’s most people begin to reduce and completely remove their symptoms.
Increasingly common, acne can continue into adult life. Statistics suggest that up to 50 % of women may be affected by acne at some point in their lives. Whilst there is no cure for acne, there are a number of ways to deal with the symptoms. Individual symptoms can be treated to some extent, using a number of creams designed to combat them.

We take each case into account on an individual basis, providing you with the best treatment for the symptoms that you are displaying.
