Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the UK, it will affect most of us at some stage of our life, most often during adolescence. It is an inflammatory condition which leads to oily skin and development of spots, including blackheads and whiteheads. Papules and cysts are also common. It can affect areas such as the face, chest and back. 



Whether it’s teenage acne, adult acne, hormonal acne or any other form of acne, we have a wide variety of acne treatments and the best of the best expertise to help you get your skin under control. Due to fluctuating hormone levels that come hand in hand with puberty, acne affects most people aged between 12 and 25. 

Nonetheless, it has become far more common in adults, in recent years. Put simply, acne starts with trapped sebum or a clogged pore. This results in a build-up of Propionibacterium or P acnes. This bacteria loves to chomp on all our dead skin cells and oil, which in turn irritates the skin and causes spots. 

There are many factors that can cause acne, including hormones and genetics. Even diet and pollution can play a part in making acne worse.
