Acne is an extremely common problem in today’s youth, but also affects many young adults too. Known as one of the most burdensome skin conditions today, acne can affect one’s confidence and happiness and even cause distress. At AP Skincare, we’ve got a range of fantastic acne treatments designed to tackle spots. So, if you’re struggling to control your spots with popular creams and ointments, it may be worth booking in for the AP Skincare service.
Around 80% of people aged between 11 and 30 are affected by acne – so you’re certainly not alone if you suffer too. While acne tends to disappear when we hit our 20s, about 5% of women and 1% of men still suffer from acne after the age of 25. While it’s commonly linked to the changing hormone levels during puberty, acne can actually appear at any time as a result of abnormal sebum.
When larger amounts of oil are produced next to the hair follicles in the skin, a bacterium called P.acnes becomes prevalent. Over time, this becomes more aggressive and leads to inflammation and pus, while the thickening of the inner lining of the hair follicle leads to blockages in the pores. Unfortunately, washing your skin and maintaining a good skincare regime doesn’t unblock these pores.
At AP Skincare, we offer a range of treatments to help regulate the skin’s oil production and consequently reduce the problems of acne. Our treatments are suitable for teens, young adults, and those over 25; if you suffer with acne, we’re likely to have the perfect solution.
One of the best things about our acne treatments is that they’re tailored to you. Many of the products you find in chemists or beauty stores are designed to meet the general needs of acne sufferers – not your specific needs. At AP Skincare, we determine which treatment will work best for you following a clinical consultation that looks at your lifestyle and skin needs.
