Acne treatment explained
Acne is an extremely common skin condition and is likely to affect most people at some point in their lives. It often develops on the face, but can also appear on the chest, shoulders, back and other areas of the body. If severe and untreated, acne can also lead to scarring, permanently marking the skin. Scarring can be skin coloured, red or pigmented. At our Central London clinic, we treat both active acne and past acne scarring.
Acne is characterised by bacteria, oil and inflammation. There are many triggers including hormones, stress, over exfoliation, incorrect product use and even diet in some people. When it heals, it can leave behind scarring.
Acne spots vary in size, type and number, and include:
- Blackheads & whiteheads: yellowish bumps that can feel sore and firm
- Papulses & pustules: red bumps, which may have a white tip and be pus-filled
- Nodules: large, hard lumps under the skin
- Cysts: similar to nodules, but pus-filled
At Adonia, our approach is to find the solution for your skin. We carry out robust consultations to understand your triggers and then recommend appropriate treatments. We also use a holistic approach to treatment to look at managing underlying triggers as well as evidence based treatments to calm breakouts.
Treatments at our clinic include effective skin care, topical medications such as retinoids and antibiotics when needed, chemical peels to resurface and rejuvenate skin, LED therapy to target redness and inflammation. We also treat acne scars, hyperpigmentation (red or brown skin patches) and scarring using a variety of treatments including: Medium depth chemical peels, laser, PRP, microneedling, HIFU and subcision.
