What is acne?

acne-webAcne is a disorder of the skin caused by an inflammation of the oil glands. Acne is the most common skin disorder, affecting 85 per cent of Australians aged 15-24 years old. Almost all of us have had acne at some point in time. However, for some young people acne is a far more serious problem with the possibility of permanent physical, mental and emotional effects. Acne usually starts at puberty when increased levels of sex hormones (known as androgens) cause an increase in the size and oil production of glands. It is not uncommon to see acne effect people of all ages.

What causes acne?

It is important to remember that there are many factors that contribute to acne and this can make acne difficult to understand and treat. Acne can occur when the oil glands (pores) in the skin become blocked. If the pore becomes blocked, oil builds up and causes irritation. Bacteria rapidly multiply within these blocked follicles causing the inflammation we refer to as a pimple.
