Up to 85 per cent of Australian’s will develop acne during their life. Approximately 5 per cent will experience severe acne. Nearly half of men and women continue to experience acne into their thirties. It can be painful, distressing and embarrassing.
Many treatments today are useless and some are actually harmful. Effective treatments do exist, and it’s important to know about them because treating acne correctly can also reduce the likelihood and/or severity of scarring – a common side-effect. If scarring forms, this may result in more advanced medical treatments that involve laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels. These can be expensive, time consuming and often result in days, perhaps even weeks of downtime (you’ll most likely be house bound).
For this reason, properly managing acne is paramount.
Although it’s one of the most common skin conditions, it’s also one of the most difficult to deal with. It takes a deep understanding of the skin, your lifestyle, environmental factors, medications and much more to professionally treat and manage it and to ensure quality results. There is most certainly no one-size-fits-all solution.
