Acne

Acne is a skin condition that involves production of excess numbers of skin cells.  These clog the pores, blocking in oil & bacteria which then multiply to cause skin infection.  

When those infections break through the walls of pores, skin responds by making capsules of scar tissue, pulling skin out of shape. 

Due to the changed shape of the pore, it is no longer easy for oils & cells to freely move out of the pore.  This blocks things up again, and is the reason why acne returns.  The scars themselves are a painful reminder of the condition. 

True acne resolution needs to treat the scarring.  If you don't, it could return at the  slightest change in your skin, health or lifestyle.  

There is a hormonal component that impacts how much oil is made which requires skilled assessment to ensure relief. 

We ensure your acne solution is good for your skin in the long term.  Look forward to clear, healthy skin.
