About acne

Acne Vulgaris is a common condition, affecting up to 90% of teenagers. In nearly half of these patients, acne will persist into adulthood.

It is a chronic inflammatory condition of the sebaceous glands in the skin, resulting in commedones (‘blackheads’) and/or pustules. It primarily affects the face, but can also occur on the upper chest and back.

Acne and potential scarring can have a severe detrimental affect on a psychosocial level, affecting young peoples confidence and self esteem.

Appointments to get rid of acne account for a huge proportion of GP time, and many young patients often feel inadequately treated or helpless when treatment fails.
