Acne is a very common skin condition that affects 95% of teenagers and adults to some extent over the course of their lifetime, and we understand this skin condition can have a negative impact on our self-esteem. Here at Laser Clinic North Wales, we create a bespoke treatment plan to help effectively treat acne.
Acne is commonly triggered by hormonal imbalances that result in the body creating excess sebum (oil). Sebum is a naturally occurring substance produced by the sebaceous glands in skin. It’s primary function is to waterproof and moisturise the skin by flowing out of follicles onto the skin surface. When we produce too much sebum, which captures dead skin and other cellular debris, the follicles can become blocked. Bacteria can build up in the sebaceous glands using sebum as an energy source and travels up through the follicle to the surface of the skin. This results in blackheads, whiteheads, red or pus-filled spots and inflamed skin.
