What is Acne?
Acne breakouts usually occur in younger men and women, especially during puberty, and can be psychologically distressing. Although it is often associated with adolescents, it also commonly affects adults.
Some people have naturally acne-prone skin, resulting in severe acne that seldom goes away throughout adulthood. Adult acne can also occur due to hormonal changes, inflammation of a hair follicle, clogged pores, bacteria, and lifestyle factors such as stress and poor eating habits.
It is important to note that acne is not only the pimples we’re familiar with on the surface of the skin but also blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.
Can Acne be Cured Permanently?
Most people with active acne seek help from a GP, who can recommend a combination of topical skincare products and prescription antibiotics. These will help manage breakouts, but will not cure acne. Unfortunately, there are currently no ways to permanently cure acne.
Occasionally, in severe cases, it can be treated with a drug called Roaccutane under the supervision of a dermatologist. However, while conventional antibiotic treatments are a clinically proven cornerstone of most acne treatments, most patients prefer not to use prescription medications.
If you have a less severe form of acne or you would prefer not to undergo the conventional drug treatments, we offer one of the most effective aesthetic acne treatments currently on the market that improves the symptoms.— Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).
