Overview of acne

Talk to the Cosmetic Medical Clinic about our services for acne and acne scar removal in Sydney Acne, medically known as Acne Vulgaris, is a disorder of the of the pilosebaceous unit, is made up of a hair follicle, sebaceous gland (oil gland), and a hair.
It can affect people of all races and ages but most commonly occurs during puberty when the sebaceous glands come to life due to stimulation from the hormones produced by the adrenal glands. Acne occurs when the skin’s oil glands produce too much sebum, an oily substance that moisturises the skin. This excess accumulation of sebum along with dead skin cells creates a plug that blocks the pore. This blockage becomes infected with bacteria, resulting in swelling and the formation of a pimple. For the control of acne, it is recommended that individuals use the Q-Switch Laser FRAC3.

Overview of acne scars

Acne scars are textural changes that may occur as a result of severe acne. If acne is left untreated, it may lead to scarring. When acne occurs, large pus-filled spaces known as cysts form, destroying the surrounding skin tissue and hindering the healing process. Once the cyst empties the area, allowing it to heal, it leaves behind a scar on the face.

The procedure for correcting acne scarring is dependant on the basis of an individual’s skin type, and the type of scar. For the removal of acne scarring, we here at the Cosmetic Medical Clinic recommend the EXEL02 Co2 Laser Fractional Skin Resurfacing procedure.

Tips for ACNE prone skin:

Wash your face about twice each day. Do not wash it more often. Use a mild soap made especially for people with acne, and warm water. Do not scrub the skin

Don’t try to burst the pimples. You may push the infection further down, causing more blocking and worsen the swelling and redness. Popping pimples makes scarring more likely.

Keep your hands clean by washing them regularly and try to refrain from touching your face with your hands.

Always wash your hands before touching your face. This includes before applying lotions, creams or makeup.

Glasses should be cleaned regularly as they collect sebum and skin residue.

Your skin needs to breathe. If your acne is on your back, shoulders or chest try wearing loose clothing. Tight garments, such as headbands, caps and scarves should be avoided – if you have to wear them make sure they are cleaned regularly.

You should NOT use any chemicals including moisturiser and makeup so that pores do not clog up with any particles.

Hair collects sebum and skin residue. Keep your hair clean and away from your face.

Too much sun can cause your skin to produce more sebum. Try to reduce exposure.

If you shave your face, do it carefully. Use either an electric shaver or safety razors. If you use a safety razor make sure the blade is sharp. Soften your skin/beard with warm soapy water before applying the shaving cream.
