Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages, causing various types of blemishes and imperfections on the skin. While it is often associated with teenagers, acne can persist into adulthood and can have a significant impact on an individual’s self-esteem and quality of life. Our London clinic offers specialised medical-grade skincare treatments to effectively manage and treat acne, helping you achieve clear and healthy skin.

Causes of Acne

Acne develops when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This can lead to the growth of bacteria, inflammation, and the formation of different types of acne lesions. Hormonal changes, genetics, certain medications, and lifestyle factors can contribute to the development of acne. Common triggers include:

  1. Excess Oil Production: Increased sebum (oil) production can clog pores, leading to the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples.

  2. Dead Skin Cells: The shedding of skin cells can mix with sebum and block hair follicles, promoting acne development.

  3. Bacteria: The presence of the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes can exacerbate inflammation and contribute to the formation of inflammatory acne.

  4. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones, such as during puberty, menstrual cycles, or hormonal disorders, can lead to increased oil production and acne.

  5. Diet and Lifestyle: Certain foods and lifestyle factors, such as high-sugar diets and stress, can influence acne development.

Types of Acne

Acne can manifest in various forms, including:

  1. Whiteheads and Blackheads: Non-inflammatory lesions caused by clogged pores.

  2. Papules: Small, red, raised bumps caused by inflamed hair follicles.

  3. Pustules: Similar to papules, but containing pus at the center.

  4. Nodules: Large, painful, solid lumps beneath the skin’s surface.

  5. Cysts: Deep, painful, pus-filled lesions that can cause scarring.
