The trouble with spots
For many people acne can be an annoying and embarrassing problem. Acne is a condition where hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells, resulting in whiteheads or blackheads. Acne is most common in teenagers, however, it can affect people of all ages. Severe acne can cause emotional distress and scarring. The earlier treatment is started, the lower the risk for such problems.
If you’ve tried over-the-counter (nonprescription) acne products and they haven’t helped, the doctors and nurses at Upper Hutt Skin Clinic can help you:
- Control your acne
- Avoid scarring or other damage to your skin
- Make scars less noticeable
Help is here!
Research shows that controlling acne can prevent future outbreaks and scarring, which can result in clearer skin and improved self-esteem and confidence. The doctors and nurses at the Upper Hutt Skin Clinic will do a skin assessment and develop a personalised management plan which will involve one or more of the following treatments; blue light therapy, photodynamic therapy, microneedling, allmedic™ skincare products and oral and topical therapies.
