Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands and excess keratin production, leading to excessively oily skin that is prone to blackheads, white heads, pimples and cysts.
Sebaceous gland activity is governed by our hormones. The oestrogens (the female hormones) suppress the sebaceous glands, whereas the androgens (the male hormones) stimulate them.
Adult acne may often be the result of a hormone imbalance in females, and it is important to have this investigated by your doctor, particularly if you have other symptoms of an hormonal imbalance such as irregular periods and/or excess body hair.
The bad news is, adult acne can persist through your 20s and even into your 30s. The good news is your adult acne can be successfully controlled with the Clearskincare Acne Programme.
The Clearskincare Acne Programme is a comprehensive treatment programme. We diagnose the underlying cause of your acne, initiate a skincare and treatment programme to control your breakouts and we offer a range of treatments to improve the appearance of both pigmented and depressed acne scarring.
Every programme is individually tailored and your progress is carefully monitored to ensure the best outcome.
The Clearskincare Acne Programme can be adjusted for each individual.
