A common skin condition which occurs when hair follicles are plugged with dead skin cells and oil. They commonly occur on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. This condition is commonly seen in teenagers. It is a relatively benign condition that may resolve on its own. In severe cases, it can cause scarring.
Acne may be triggered by hormonal changes that occur during puberty, mensuration, pregnancy, and starting or stopping birth control pills. It can also be caused by certain medications such as lithium and oily creams.
At One Skin Clinic, Dr. Najia Shaikh will recommend a treatment protocol from a variety of options depending on your skin type and the severity of your condition to bring back the healthy, smooth appearance to your skin.
