Acne & Acne Scar

Acne & Acne Scar

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes deeper, painful cysts. 

Acne can appear on the face, chest, back, and other areas of the body. It is most prevalent during adolescence but can affect individuals of all ages. 

Factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, diet, stress, and certain skincare products can contribute to the development of acne.

What you need to know?

Acne affects both males and females of all races and ethnicities. It is more common in adolescent young adults with the majority (~85%) of 16 to 18 year olds affected. However, it can sometimes occur in children and adults of all ages.  

Acne is due to a combination of factors as follows (list is not exhaustive)

  • Familial tendency
  • Hormones
  • Acne bacteria
  • Distension and occlusion of hair follicles

Acne is usually confined to the face, but it may involve the neck, chest and back. It is characterised by the following

  • Comedones (blackheads and whiteheads)
  • Inflamed papules and pustules
  • In severe acne – nodules and cysts
  • Post-inflammatory pigment and scars
  • Severe social and psychological effects

Severity of acne is broadly classified into mild, moderate and severe acne. The severity will normally guide the treatment recommendations.

This will depend on the severity of the acne. Treatment options include e.g. topical creams (retinoids), oral medications (antibiotics, isotretinoin) and procedures (PRP, lasers), etc.
