Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, affecting people of all ages. Almost 80% of teenagers have acne of some severity, but generally grow out of the condition by their early twenties. However, some individuals suffer from the condition well into their thirties and beyond.
Acne is caused by the overproduction of androgens, hormones that stimulate the sebaceous glands causing them to enlarge and increase the sebum production. This increase in oil production, coupled with dead skin cells, results in blockages in the hair follicle and sebaceous glands.
Timely treatment of acne is very important since in some cases acne leads to scarring, which is ultimately very difficult to treat.
Treatments for management of Acne
These are very safe and effective in exfoliating the surface layers of the epidermis. Regular superficial peels remove the dead cells on the surface of the skin that are responsible for the blocked pores that lead to acne formation. At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we offer a variety of chemical and natural (herbal) peels. Best option for you would be discussed during your consultation with one of our trained professionals.
We also have top of the line Fractional Resurfacing laser which could be used for ultimate skin resurfacing should the therapist deem it suitable for your individual skin type and indication. Fractional Resurfacing is used to treat Acne Scars (all types) as well as open pores and over-active sebaceous glands.
Post inflammatory pigmentation is also commonly found in patients suffering from acne. Pigmentation may at times be more apparent and disfiguring than the underlying cause itself.
Each patient is different and treatment is planned accordingly. Some patients require simple treatments, while others may require a set of multiple treatments at the same time. If you can email us your pictures and we will be able to guide you in a better way.
At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we believe that treatments should be tailored to individual needs. Our trained professionals are able to combine one or multiple treatments for optimum results.
