Signs and Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms

Acne is a common skin condition that affects a large proportion of the population. It is characterised by redness, papules, whiteheads, pimples, and blackheads. The condition is often painful due to inflammation of the skin and lesions that occur as a result of picking at the affected areas. While most commonly seen in adolescents, it is becoming more prevalent in adults.

In the majority of cases, even after the acne has subsided, the skin is left with scars and marks. An increasing number of people are seeking acne treatment in Melbourne because this skin condition is not only physically damaging, but it can also be psychologically traumatic.

What Causes Acne?

There are several different types of acne but the contributing causal factors remain the same. These are thought to be: hormones, genetics, diet, psychology and bacteria.

Hormones

Hormonal changes mostly occur during puberty, though they can happen at any time. These changes can cause the levels of oil, sebum, and moisture in the skin to become imbalanced – and this imbalance can result in acne.

Genetics

Some people are simply more genetically predisposed to the condition than others.

Bacteria

As acne often involves open lesions and wounds (as a result of burst pimples or picking), it is a breeding ground for bacteria. Bacteria can cause excessive inflammation and often requires a longer acne treatment program

Diet

Although evidence for a strong link between acne and diet isn’t conclusive, it is believed that diet plays a role in enhancing its symptoms. High fat and high sugar diets can cause the skin to become excessively oily, blocking pores and resulting in pimples.

Psychology

Increased levels of stress can cause acne flares.
