What is acne?

Acne vulgaris is a very common skin condition that usually starts in teenagers. It is characterised by blackheads, whiteheads, pus-filled spots and oily skin. The acne bacterium (propionobacterium acnes) can multiply in those prone to acne. This triggers inflammation and the formation of red pus-filled spots. For the majority it tends to resolve in the late teens or twenties but for some patients acne can persist for many years.

How can acne be treated?

Acne treatments fall into several categories:

  • Topical treatments that are applied directly to the skin
    -these are very effective if used correctly for mild to moderate acne.
  • Laser Treatments (Pulsed Dye Laser)
  • Oral antibiotics (tablets that are taken by mouth)
  • Oral contraceptive pill (female patients only)
  • Roaccutane (by prescription and consultation for suitability)

Other treatments.
These including blue light laser and chemical peels. They are extremely effective for mild to moderate acne but may require several treatments over a period of time.

Fractional RF with Needling is a very effective treatment for treating acne scarring and facial rejuvenation.

Post-acne scarring:
Laser resurfacing of facial skin or phenol peeling to reduce post-acne scarring are established techniques requiring the skill of an experienced doctor. These would be required for moderate to severe acne scarring. Microneedling is a more gentle procedure for mild to moderate acne scarring and gives very good results after a few months.
