What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects most teens during puberty. We have all known people around us who have had a few pimples and others who have been affected more seriously. Acne can affect self-esteem and when left untreated, it can leave permanent scars. Although it usually appears during puberty, acne can start, continue or even recur in adulthood. 80% of adult acne cases are present in women.
The appearance of acne occurs when there is an over-production of sebum in the sebaceous glands which clogs the pores. We all have bacteria on our skin. Some of them love the fatty medium caused by this excess of sebum and will start to multiply, causing inflammation of the follicles visible in the form of red pimples. Acne can also take different forms:
Often, people’s first reaction is to try to find a low-cost solution on their own. This may include buying products online or at the pharmacy, however, these products often give very little results. Others may try to use make-up to camouflage the acne. Often times this worsens the situation due to the plugging of the follicle openings from the outside, leading to the accumulation of sebum. Others may believe that nothing can be done and let their acne deteriorate, risking leaving permanent scars on their face.

We can offer you real solutions, in addition to treatments and products that are not offered in the public health care system. Our solutions are effective and customized to each person’s needs.
