Acne, breakouts, congestion, large pores and problem skin are common skin concerns that affect both young and old. If left untreated or treated in the wrong way, they can also lead to further skin problems including scarring, redness, hyperpigmentation and general inflammation. Quite often debilitating, they can significantly impact our self-confidence.

Acne is the result of overactive sebaceous glands and excess skin cell production, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads and cysts. Genetics and hormones are the primary impacting factors, but in some cases, it may be an external factor that can be causing, if not increasing, the severity of breakouts.  In both cases this changed hormonal activity stimulates an over production of oil.

At the same time the skin becomes thicker as cells no longer exfoliate in an organised way leading to congestion which is a mix of oil and dead skin cells. This provides the perfect breeding ground for Propionibacterium acnes (P acnes). This bacterium is responsible for the redness and inflammation that most often progresses on to the cysts and whiteheads.

Not all acne is the same and treatments need to be tailored to your specific needs to achieve the best results. Because acne is a stubborn and persistent condition, our experienced clinicians know the most effective way to tackle it is via a combination of treatment modalities. 

At Artisan, we offer a range of treatments to assist in the treatment and management of acne and problem skin.
