Acne

Almost all of us suffer from the effects of active acne at some point in our lives, particularly during times such as puberty and pregnancy when hormone levels are fluctuating. This inflammatory skin condition causes breakouts in both men and women of all ages, most commonly in areas such as the face, chest and back.

Acne is caused by a complex interplay of factors whereby excess oil from overactive oil glands results in the blockage of pores. Bacteria which normally live on the skin surface can then multiply within the pores, driving inflammation and resulting in spots. There are various types of acne, including whiteheads, blackheads and cysts, and some patients are more prone to acne due to their specific genetics and hormones.

Those suffering from acne understand all too well its effects on confidence and self-esteem, but finding a solution that works for you is no easy task. It is important to understand the type of acne you suffer from in order to successfully treat it. After her own personal struggles with acne, Dr Anjali has a special interest in this field and is one of the UK’s leading experts on acne and its treatment.
