Frequently asked questions
Although teenagers often get acne, it can affect adults of any age.
What causes acne?
Acne develops on the skin when the pores become clogged, which may occur as a result of an overproduction of oil, a buildup of bacteria or the shedding of dead skin cells. When these substances build up in the hair follicle, they form a soft plug that forces the follicle wall to bulge and protrude from the skin, causing a lesion to develop.
Symptoms of acne can include blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, nodules, pustules, redness and swelling.
No; it can make them worse. Pimples should never be opened except by a dermatologist because of the risk of infection.
Acne treatments vary depending on the type and severity of lesions, and the patient’s skin type, age and lifestyle. Treatment options can include topical creams and ointments, and prescription oral antibiotics. To remove acne scarring, treatments such as dermabrasion or laser therapy may be recommended.
Yes, you can wear light make up – but it’s probably best to avoid it entirely if you possibly can. Choose your products carefully i.e. preferably use non-comedogenic make-up. Wash your face twice a day with gentle cleanser and after sweating. Always remove make-up before going to bed.
