Acne And Acne Scarring
Acne is a common skin complaint that can affect the face, neck, chest and back.
Appearing as spots and pimples, the causes of this inflammatory condition can often be either hormonal, or due to blockages in the pores from excess sebum and dead skin cells.
At various points in our lives the body experiences fluctuations in hormone levels, with adolescence and the menopause being two significant examples, causing outbreaks of whiteheads, blackheads or pus-filled pustules on the surface of the skin.
The appearance of acne is often an unwanted concern that can be viewed as unattractive, with particularly severe cases commonly affecting the emotional well-being of the sufferer, causing feelings of lost confidence and embarrassment.
Although very tempting, it is important to refrain from squeezing or picking the spots as it can exacerbate the condition and possibly lead to further inflammation or infection.
It is not unusual for people who have been affected by acne to also experience acne scarring. These are the marks that are left behind after an outbreak has caused damage to the skin, resulting in the development of a visibly dimpled effect, which may also be accompanied by some possible discolouration.
Scarring generally fades over time, but it is not always the case that it will completely eradicate, and the condition can sometimes be hard to conceal.
At Ambra Aesthetic Skin Clinic, acne and acne scarring can be treated through Microneedling, subcision and TCA cross peel aimed at resurfacing the skin and restoring healthy properties to its structure. Deep cleansing and exfoliation can help to keep the skin in tip-top condition. We also recommend that you can maintain a good skincare regime at home with such as ZO- skinhealth and Obagi Medical range, to lessen the likelihood of further outbreaks.Book a Consultation
