What is acne?
ACNE CAN AFFECT US AT ALMOST ANY AGE
Acne is a common & stubborn skin problem that can affect us at any age, and on any part of our bodies. It occurs when oil produced by the sebaceous gland is trapped inside the hair follicle, promoting bacterial colonization that leads to inflammation of the follicle.
Acne is closely associated with hormonal changes - as such, teens and pregnant women are more prone to it than others.
With appropriate treatment, it is possible to:
- Reduce frequency of outbreaks
- Reduce redness and scars
- Obtain smoother skin texture
A personal consulation with the doctor is required prior to any treatment, in order to create a customized plan that will ensure optimal results for you.
