What is acne?

Acne, or acne vulgaris is a common condition affecting the hair follicle and sebaceous gland. When oil or dead skin cells block the follicles, blackheads, whiteheads, spots and pimples can appear.

Usually on the face, check and back areas of the body it can lead to scarring. It is very common – affecting millions of people worldwide, predominantly in teenage years but unfortunately often into adulthood.

What causes it

Acne can be caused by:

  • Hormones
  • Hormonal conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which may also cause irregular periods, weight changes and unusual hair growth
  • Cosmetics and medication
  • Diet
  • Genetics

How can we treat it?

Acne may be common, but it needn’t be left untreated – particularly because it can lead to acne scars. We know acne can feel very personal, so it needs particular care and attention.

If you’re suffering from acne, come and see us. Following a consultation with our doctor, you’ll be placed on an appropriate acne treatment programme. This may be through advice, prescriptions, creams, a programme of peels and acne facials to help clear the dead skin cells, or a combination of all four. We can also support with acne scar treatment if needed.

You’re in safe hands – we will do a thorough assessment with you before treatment to ensure the best results.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
