Acne is a common chronic skin condition characterised by pimples on the face, chest and back. This occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged with excess oils, dirt and bacteria and in turn become inflamed or infected. This inflammation can even cause tissue damage that may lead to scarring as well as hyperpigmentation.

Acne & Acne Scarring

Acne is a common chronic skin condition characterised by pimples on the face, chest and back. This occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged with excess oils, dirt and bacteria and in turn become inflamed or infected. This inflammation can even cause tissue damage that may lead to scarring as well as hyperpigmentation.

What causes acne?

The cause of Acne is multifactorial and usually occurs as a result of increased levels of androgens (such as testosterone) in the body. This results in an increased production of oil (sebum) produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands, along with the thickening of the outermost layer of the epidermis. The skin’s pores inevitably become clogged and blocked with excess oil and skin cells. This leads to the formation of a pustule (pimple) which turns into the perfect breeding ground for bacteria to cause full-blown acne. Acne affects both men and women, not only in during their teenage years, but may very well affect adults well into their 40’s and 50’s.
