Acne is a common yet distressing condition that affects both males and females at all stages of life. It is a chronic skin disease of the oil follicle (sebaceous follicle) characterised by four main pathological changes—increased oil/sebum production, comedone formation, colonisation of the skin with Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) and resultant inflammation.
Combination treatment is often required to address each of these processes. A key component to treating acne is prescription medications; both oral and topical. These can only be prescribed by a doctor. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, sophisticated laser treatment and tailored skin care regimes also form part of Aesthetic Harmony’s doctor-led treatment plans.
