Acne Treatment and Scar Removal
Acne Dermatologist (EU)
Looking for effective & affordable acne treatments? The Cosmetic medical clinic offers the latest effective acne treatments in Sydney. Acne is a chronic skin disorder characterized by white and black heads, pimples, redness, nodules, cysts and sometimes scarring. Overactive sebaceous oily glands are responsible for this condition, as is a genetic predisposition. Dead skin cells and sebum clog the skin pores, bacteria begins to grow inside the pore and the immune system fights the bacterial growth causing redness and pus. In darker skin we can see additional post inflammatory pigmentation. Treatment depends on the stage of the acne and can involve a range of creams, skin peels, deep skin peels, laser treatments and tablets.
Acne normally starts in adolescence and will be resolved by the mid-twenties. However, some people may still need to have acne treatment till the age of 30 or more. Various treatments and therapy are available, from topical treatments and facial peeling to treat acne scars and remove the acne until the higher type of procedures such as hormonal and oral acne therapy for more serious cases. You can opt for the right treatments by visiting doctors with experience in this area to diagnose your problems and determine your skin concerns.
