Acne in adults

People of any age can get acne. There are a range of different treatments for adults, and lifestyle changes that can help too.

What causes acne?

Acne happens when the hair follicles on your skin become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.

There are many reasons why this happens. Hormonal changes, stress, makeup and skincare and even our genetics can trigger flare-ups.

Are acne scars permanent?

Depending on how severe your acne is, the scars it leaves behind can be permanent.

Some scars may be raised. This happens when too much collagen is produced in an affected area.

Other scars are depressed. They look sunken because you have lost tissue in the areas where acne has affected your skin.

This doesn’t happen to everyone. But if you do have permanent acne scars, private, in-clinic procedures like microneedling and chemical peels might help to reduce their appearance.

How can acne treatments help my skin?

Medicated treatments can help address irritation, inflammation and pain. There are anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory medications available. Your GP or pharmacist can advise you on the best treatments for your needs.
