Acne & Acne Scars

Acne is a common condition affecting the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It often begins in adolescence, but can persist or even present for the first time in adulthood. The clinical picture can vary significantly. Acne can be characterized by open comedones (blackheads), closed comedones (whiteheads), inflammatory papules and pustules and cysts. Without early intervention, it can cause permanent scarring.

Please note: To obtain medical advice and prescription based treatments for acne by one of our Dermatologists, you must obtain a referral from your family doctor.

Acne can lead to significant emotional distress and have an adverse psychological impact. Our Dermatologists provide tailored treatment plans to address the specific concerns of our patients so that they can feel confident in their skin. We also offer solutions to address acne scarring once the inflammation is controlled.
