Acne is a skin condition that can occur at any age, but is commonly experienced during the teenage years. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria. Hormonal changes, certain diet and lifestyle factors can trigger oil production, leading to an increased risk of acne.
To prevent future breakout and minimise scarring, acne should be treated promptly.
At MediDermic we combine our acne treatment with cosmeceutical skincare and treatments. This helps alleviate acne outbreaks, unclogging pores and targeting the Propionibacterium bacteria.
We can begin treating acne scars if acne is under control, as outbreaks can result in the production of new formation scars.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just severe or picked acne that causes scarring. Acne scarring can manifest even from mild comedonal acne (commonly known as blackheads) in certain individuals. That’s why it’s crucial to keep a watchful eye for early signs of scarring, such as minor indentations in the skin. Taking proactive steps towards treatment at this stage can prevent lasting damage.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a condition where the skin changes to a brown or red colour, is often mistaken for scarring. However, it’s simply a temporary change in skin colour that typically resolves with time. As we age, the natural thickness of our skin’s collagen and fat layers decrease, which can make scars appear more pronounced. This is a common reason why scarring may seem to worsen over time.
