Acne is a disorder of the sebaceous gland. It can cause significant inflammation in the skin with the potential for scarring. Acne needs to be treated quickly and effectively to avoid secondary scarring of the skin.
Acne affects 8 out of 10 people. We are seeing more and more cases of teenage and adult acne due to a combination of dietary and lifestyle factors. Most cases of acne nowadays are resistant to antibiotic therapy due to global antibiotic overuse.
