Cystic Acne is the most severe stage of Acne and needs to be controlled quickly to prevent disfiguring and permanent scarring. A Dermatologist who can prescribe strong medication, such as Roaccutane, is the best treatment option for cystic acne.

About Acne. Acne is the most common of skin diseases and anyone can have an acne breakout. This involves an increase in oil flow through the hair follicle, causing oils and dead skin to create a blockage seen as either a black head or white head.

The stagnant oil and excess dead skin is the perfect environment for P. Acnes (bacteria that causes Acne) to thrive. The P. Acnes bacteria gorges itself on the surrounding skin, creating a pustule (painful, inflamed, red, pus filled pimple), and it is in this stage is when permanent scarring can form.

The most prevalent and serious cases are seen in adolescent boys, due to a spike in the hormone testosterone, it usually resolves spontaneously by mid-20’s, however the acne scars can stay for life.

How we can help. In the case of Acne, there are several physiological changes that exacerbate the condition therefore a multi-phased treatment is your best option. A customised and regular treatment program will help to reduce oil flow, thickening of skin, inflammation, bacteria and remove congestion, allowing the breakouts to heal faster.

Quick Results. No Downtime. To ensure quick results during your treatment program, increase the skins healing capacity, prolong time in between follow up sessions and help prevent further acne breakouts, the daily use of acids, an anti-inflammatory serum, anti-bacterial lotion and an oil free sunscreen is recommended.
