Acne is usually thought of as a common teenage problem – 80% of 11-30 year olds will be affected. However, unfortunately we see many people in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s who also suffer from acne.
Acne is a condition that causes spots to develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest. These can range from mild blackheads and whiteheads to in the worst cases pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can be inflamed, angry and painful. This severe form of acne can unfortunately be quite long lasting and can lead to scarring.
Areas of pigmentation can also follow after inflammatory spots such as those caused by acne, and this occurs more commonly in darker skin types.
There are effective treatments available which reduce and prevent the activity of the acne in order to stop the severe inflammation and pigmentation.
