At the Harley Street Skin Clinic, we understand skin. That's exactly what enables us to identify a skin-related problem and take the appropriate course of action. Acne - although a particularly difficult complaint to treat - is no different, and there is always something that can be done. It is merely biology. A science - no more, no less.
We understand that beating acne can feel like a Herculean task, but we're here to show you that it is doable, if you only know where to begin.
First things first...
Acne, or Acne Vulgaris, is one of the most common skin conditions worldwide today.Acne is a condition characterised by lots of pimples, bumps, lesions, redness and inflammation as well as sometimes infection and cysts. It can be extremely painful and even result in significant scarring in later years. Acne doesn’t discriminate, and sufferers range from teenagers right the way through to full-grown adults, both men and women alike.
It often occurs during puberty, as this is when the sebaceous glands are activated. These glands are what produce oil to lubricate the skin, and this oily secretion is known as sebum. Excess sebum buildup as well as debris and bacteria can cause these glands to become blocked or infected which is when visible blemishes appear on the skin.
Most commonly, acne will arise in areas such as the face and neck, the back, the shoulders and the chest. Contrary to what is often assumed, acne is not by any means an indication of poor hygiene, in fact, excessive cleaning can equally cause dryness and further irritation.
This often leads sufferers to feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. We're here to tell you that it is possible to strike the perfect balance, as well as stand up to a difficult complexion which has caused nothing but anxiety, stress and embarrassment.
Those susceptible to acne may, unfortunately, always have to pay a little more attention to their skin than most, but acne is entirely manageable with the right course of treatment. While it cannot be cured, it can most certainly be controlled. That's where we come in…
With a wealth of treatments, designed just for you...
Gland blockages can be triggered or worsened by factors such as makeup, hormone changes, menstruation, stress and even certain medications (typically those which are lithium or androgen based). Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of know-how to fight acne back.
Many people assume that it is just a case of cleanliness, and that these oil breakups can be prevented by merely washing away all of that excess oil. While this may somewhat improve the surface appearance of the skin, it is actually counterproductive to acne sufferers longer term. This is because repetitive cleaning does not affect the production of sebum beneath the surface whatsoever, just weakening and drying out the skin. As skin needs moisture in order to effectively shed skin cells, when it is excessively dried the body compensates by producing even more - you guessed it - oil.
