Adult Acne

At Cosmedics, we see many patients in their 20's, 30's and 40's who are still really struggling with acne on a day to day basis. It can even recur in the 50's and late onset acne is especially an issue for those undergoing hormone changes (e.g. menopause) or stress.

Symptoms of Acne

acne scarring

  • Spots on the skin, ranging from mild blackheads and whiteheads to tender pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can become infected
  • Greasy skin due to excessive production of sebum
  • Usually occurs on the face, back and chest
  • Flushing (redness) or skin pigmentation, especially in darker skin types

Causes of Acne

  • Acne occurs where bacteria infect a hair follicle which has been blocked with excessive sebum, causing blackheads and whiteheads which then develop into full blown acne with spots and pustules
  • Genetic condition – tends to run in families (although not always)
  • Hormonal changes (e.g. puberty, menstrual cycle, menopause, pregnancy)
  • Environmental factors such as stress or exposure to pollution

Acne Treatment

There are effective treatments available which reduce and prevent the activity of the acne in order to stop the severe inflammation and pigmentation. Our treatments are designed to address the underlying problems of blocked pores, excessive oiliness, and inflammation / infection, whilst at the same time improving the overall texture and resilience of your skin.

Acne Scarring Treatment

Cosmedics Skin Clinics in London offers private acne treatment with a consultant dermatologist in our London clinic (Putney). Private prescriptions can be given with minimal waiting times. What’s more, our dermatologist can recommend other treatments which may be helpful alongside medication e.g. laser, peels, microdermabrasion. A structured programme of treatment for the acne which works from the inside (medication) as well as outside (skin treatments) can offer excellent results.

Treating the acne will prevent the appearance of long-lasting scars. Talk to Cosmedics about the next steps for you.

I have been to cosmedics UK for first time for removing skin tag. Dr, Vardy was very helpful. She explained every detail for removing the tag. Gave good advise and was very comfortable to talk to. She listened everything I talked with her. I was happy to see her and had my treatment. Thank you.
