Acne Dermatologist: Acne scar treatment

SHORTCUTS FAQ
Acne is a common skin condition in which spots develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest.

For all of these conditions, our experienced doctors will be able to examine and advise you and send you in the right direction for treatment, either under our care or under specialist dermatologist care. Make an appointment using our online booking form or by giving us a call.

Acne is most commonly thought to be caused by changes in hormone levels at puberty, during the menstrual cycle, or during pregnancy, but it can happen at any time.

Milder acne symptoms may be limited to surface blackheads or whiteheads, and in more severe cases, you may develop deep, red, pustules and cysts, which can lead to scarring. Papules and nodules (lumps of varying sizes which can be painful) may also be present.

FAQ

Is acne caused by poor hygiene?

No. It is important to keep your skin clean, but this will not prevent the appearance of new spots, and washing too much can actually make acne worse. Be careful not to rub or scrub the skin, as this can irritate it further.

Can a doctor help me with my acne?

Yes, a doctor will be able to help you with regard to the best method of treatment, and discuss how to avoid scarring and manage the condition.

Is it okay to squeeze spots and blackheads?

Squeezing spots is not recommended, as this can actually spread the bacteria in the pores and actually make things worse. Squeezing spots can also cause bleeding and lead to scarring.
