Acne is a chronic skin disease fuelled by hormones, stress, and lack of sleep. It is characterized by oily skin, blackheads, comedones, and keloids.
Acne is a condition that affects up to 80% of the population with varying degrees of severity.
It is also genetic and tends to run in families.
Acne can lead to serious conditions such as cystic acne and acne vulgaris.
Acne can be active or relatively stable depending on hormonal activities. It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands. If left untreated, acne can result in inflammation, pigmentation, and scars, especially after being picked, squeezed, or poked.
It is important to begin treatment early on before acne develops into pigmentations and scars. This will reduce mental stress, increase self-esteem, and help prevent any associated depression.
There are many causes of acne, including environmental, lifestyle-based and unfortunately, some genetic.
Every person has a unique genetic makeup and, unfortunately, some of those genetic combinations make us more susceptible to acne than others. Varying levels of hormones, oil production, and bacteria can all contribute to making a person more susceptible to acne.
Acne has a higher prevalence in adult females, with up to 85% of adult women reporting a worsening of their acne in the days before menstruation.
Often students start to have acne outbreaks during examination periods due to lack of sleep and stress.
The single most important coping mechanism for female patients with acne is to use cosmetic camouflage. However, cosmetics can trigger or worsen acne in as many as 62% of cases.
Acne cannot be cured with laser treatments, but it can be cleaned, cleared, and controlled (CCC). Our treatment will help the skin to reach homeostasis (a stabilized skin condition).
Acne is a skin disease. The common myth is to let acne simply run its course, but leaving acne untreated can result in pigmentation which lasts for years, and scars that last for life. Acne scars lower self-esteem and confidence, and can even lead to mild depression.
