Understanding Acne: Types, Causes, and Treatments at Clinic1618

Acne is not just a teenage predicament. It affects people of all ages, and its presence can significantly impact one's self-esteem and confidence. At Clinic1618, we understand the complexities of acne and are dedicated to providing personalised treatments that address not just the symptoms, but the root causes.

Types of Acne

Acne comes in various forms, and identifying the type is crucial in determining the most effective treatment. The primary types include:

  • Comedones: These are the non-inflammatory versions, known as blackheads and whiteheads.

  • Papules and Pustules: Often called pimples, these are small, red, inflamed bumps that may have pus.

  • Nodules: These are larger, harder bumps beneath the skin's surface.

  • Cysts: These deep, painful, pus-filled bumps can cause scars. •

    Causes of Acne

    Understanding the causes of acne is vital in its management. While the exact cause may vary from person to person, common factors include:

  • Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can trigger acne.

  • Diet: Certain foods, particularly those high in dairy and carbohydrates, may aggravate acne.

  • Stress: It doesn't cause acne, but it can exacerbate existing conditions.

  • Genetics: If your parents had acne, you might be more prone to it.

  • Medications: Some drugs can contribute to acne development.

  • Cosmetics: Oil-based makeup and skincare products can clog pores.

    Treatments at Clinic1618

    At Clinic1618, we offer a variety of treatments tailored to the individual's needs. Some of our most effective acne treatments include:

    • Chemical Peels: Professional peels can exfoliate the skin and help reduce acne and scarring.

    • Laser and Light Therapy: These treatments can target bacteria and reduce oil gland activity.

Prevention and Maintenance

Preventing acne flare-ups is as important as treating them. We recommend:

  • Regular Skincare Routine: Gentle cleansing and the use of non-comedogenic products

    can keep the skin clear.

  • Balanced Diet: A diet low in sugar and dairy can help some people manage their acne.

  • Stress Management: Techniques like meditation and yoga can be beneficial. •
