What Does Acne Look Like?

Acne comes in different forms and can strike at any time in your life.  The most common acne 'spots' include:

Blackheads – these are bumps on the skin that are filled with excess oil and dead skin.
Whiteheads – when the skin over the blackhead stays closed, this is a whitehead. 
Papules – are small red bumps that often feel tender or sore.
Pustules – are similar to papules but are filled with pus.
Nodules – are large hard and often painful lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin.
Cysts – are large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils.

What Causes Acne & Acne Scarring?

Changes in hormone levels are the most common cause of acne - particularly during puberty.  These hormonal changes can cause the grease-producing glands next to the hair follicles in the skin to produce abnormal amounts of sebum.  

The increased sebum levels can cause the skin bacterium P.acnes to become aggressive, causing the inflammation and pus most associated with acne.

Another side effect of hormonal changes is a thickening of the inner lining of the hair follicle which can cause pores to become blocked.

What Are The Best Treatments For Acne?

If you are suffering from acne or blemished skin, please seek advice from your GP or a skin specialist.  Do not be tempted to pick or squeeze pus-filled spots or nodules as this can make the condition worse and lead to scarring.  At k:SPA skin clinic in Fareham, we will offer a bespoke treatment for your skin concern. Some of best acne treatments include:   

Hydrodermabrasion where we can gently exfoliate and resurface the top layers of your skin to remove clogs that cause blackheads.

Chemical peels to remove clogs and get rid of the dead skin cells that can lead to blackheads. 

LED Light therapy where beams of intense light reach below the skin's surface to decrease oil production and kill bacteria.
