Acne can be a challenging skin concern to live with. Fortunately, progress has been made in understanding and treating acne. This common condition is often triggered by more than just puberty or hormonal changes. Factors such as a poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, inferior skincare products or simply not taking enough care of your skin can all generate unwanted outbreaks.

While based on professional experience, this information is still just a general guide for overall skin health. There is no substitute for coming in and talking to us personally. For a tailored treatment plan and specific advice come and see us for a complete skin profile where we will talk about your particular concern and what your skin needs.

What causes acne?

Besides the obvious triggers already mentioned, there are many other potential causes of acne and various options for treating and reducing this distressing condition. Remember, acne does not need to be permanent! If you treat your skin with the right cleansing and maintenance routine, find out the source of your breakouts, and take care of them as soon as they appear, then the concern can thankfully be short-lived.

 

Is there a permanent cure?

While knowledge of the condition and the quality of treatment continues to expand, acne remains a potentially complicated condition. Today, there are many effective ways to drastically reduce the severity of breakouts and control oil flow. However, it is important to recognise that persistent acne can be a symptom of more serious underlying problems that you may need to consult a doctor or dermatologist about. Advanced skin treatments, when used regularly, are a cost-effective and proven long-term method for controlling acne and oily skin.
