When it comes to acne, many people have often tried a variety of ‘over the counter’ acne treatment with very little success.
While there’s a wide range of acne treatment, there are very few that actually help. This can particularly be frustrating when none of the treatments actually help with your condition.
Whether you’re dealing with acne on your face, back or elsewhere on the body, acne spots can be debilitating to live with.
But you don’t have to suffer. There is an array of treatments that have been scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of acne and to help manage the symptoms.
Acne, also known as acne vulgarise, is a result of oily secretions under the skin that block the tiny opening of hair follicles. When these become blocked, it leads to blackheads, whiteheads, papules, nodules, cysts or pustules.
Although this condition most commonly affects teenagers, it can affect any age group. Sufferers will experience oiliness of the skin around the face, upper parts of the chest and back. These spots can be painful with the colour ranging from red or yellow with whiteheads and blackheads, or a mix of all these features.
Acne causes can include, hormonal changes, genetics, inflammation and bacteria. Many female sufferers of acne also report a worsening of their condition around their menstrual period.
In some cases, acne can be so severe that it can leave scarring, even milder acne can also result in scarring especially if the sufferer picks the spots.
There are many types of acne, and at Everything Skin Clinic™ we can treat them all.
Acne is a systemic condition, which means it manifests itself in different ways. The different types of acne can include:
Whichever type you’re suffering from, our various acne treatment can help combat your symptoms.
All of our treatment plans are personalised to each individual patient. During your consultation, one of our expert dermatologists will identify the type of acne you have and the severity of the condition. We will then put together a personalised treatment plan that is most likely to target and visibly improve your condition.
There are many treatments, both prescription and over the counter, whilst over the counter treatments may be perfectly suitable for the mild acne, a patient will need to consider prescription treatments when over the counter treatments are no longer effective.
Many female sufferers find that oral contraceptive pills are helpful in easing the symptoms of acne.
One medication, in particular, has a very high success rate in the treatment of stubborn acne and is available on prescription.
The main aim of treatment is to prevent scarring and reduce active acne, with early treatment being important to achieve this goal.
In general, our treatments aim to:
As well as offering the best possible treatments available specifically to your condition. Most acne treatments will target only a specific type of acne lesion. But some people will have a variety of acne lesions. Some treatments will be ‘broad spectrum’, which means that they will target all the lesions seen in acne.
Acne treatment can be different from person to person, the treatment you have will be individualised by a trained dermatologist who can understand your condition and the severity of it.
Medication is available on prescription by a fully trained dermatologist who understands the way the medication works and is able to monitor the treatment carefully.
Everything Skin clinic™ is one of very few clinics that can prescribe medication.
There are many myths around medications for this condition, as a result, it’s important to consult a fully qualified consultant dermatologist who can discuss the right treatment for the type and severity of your condition.
It’s important to note that early treatment can prevent scarring, both physical and psychological.
