What is acne?

Acne is an incredibly common inflammatory skin condition. Most people associate it with the teenage years, but it can happen at any time in your life.

Because acne is so common, there is a lot of conflicting information about the best way to treat it – but it doesn’t need to be complicated! With realistic expectations and a consistent routine, it is likely that you will be able to control your acne symptoms the majority of the time.

What causes acne?

It’s probably not a big surprise that acne is linked to our skin’s oil production. The hair follicles on our skin are attached to small sebaceous glands, which stop hair drying out by producing oily sebum. Too much sebum, combined with dead skin cells and usually harmless bacteria, can then block hair follicles. These blockages are the cause of both individual spots and acne.

What treatments are available?

Acne and spots can be frustrating, and often embarrassing, for many adults – but that doesn’t mean they can’t be treated!

The best way to manage acne is by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, treating bacterial infection and reducing inflammation. This also helps to prevent acne scarring. 

With the help of medical-grade skincare and professional treatments like chemical peels and microneedling, the appearance and occurrence of acne can be both managed and improved.

I qualified as dentist in 2007 and have since gained a Level 7 qualification in injectable treatments (the highest possible), so you can trust that I have the skills and knowledge to deliver your treatment safely and successfully.

I completed a six-month mentorship programme with Dr Lee Walker (a leader in the industry), which has ensured I am working with the most evidenced-based research in aesthetics. I also recently took part in an ultrasound and cadaver course, which allows me to see where blood vessels are and reduce the risk of complications.

In addition, I am a senior clinical mentor, an international speaker and a key opinion leader for a dermal filler brand, demonstrating my extensive experience training other medical aesthetic practitioners.

My team and I are fully trained and equipped to manage any adverse events that may occur, thanks to my training and membership of the Complications in Medical Aesthetic Collaborative (CMAC). You can trust you are in safe hands when you undergo any treatment at my clinic.
