Active Acne and Acne Scarring

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS

ACNE SCARRING AND ACTIVE ACNE

Almost everyone has had acne at some stage in their life. Constant breakouts can cause unsightly spots, unbalanced skin pigmentation and scarring that can have serious impact a person’s self-confidence and their social life. Often, their performance at school and at work is also affected.

Acne is a skin condition predominantly caused by hormonal fluctuations in the body. An increase in hormone production can cause the oil glands to plug more often, leading to a build-up of P. Acne bacteria in the blocked pores, resulting in skin inflammation and micro-abscesses. Using the wrong skincare products can further provoke the formation of acne. Finding the right skincare products and treatment can be overwhelming at times, especially without guidance from a professional.

If you are looking for an effective acne solution with professional medical treatment, you can get it both at The Lime Tree Clinic!
