Acne is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles under the skin become obstructed. Although most common on the face, acne outbreaks can also occur on the neck, chest, shoulders and upper back.
Acne can be caused by numerous factors: hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, normal changes during the period, pregnancy, menopause, diet high in refined sugar or carbohydrates, certain medications such as oral contraceptives, corticosteroids, lithium and barbiturates, as well as certain cosmetics and chronic stress.
Impact on daily life
People with acne may experience depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, poor self-image, lower quality of life, and loneliness.

Our team will choose the treatment that best suits your type of acne.
As a rule of thumb, when dealing with a comedonal type of acne (whiteheads, blackheads), a topical treatment is recommended, usually in the form of creams. When the inflammatory component (pimples, pustules, cysts) is predominant, tablets are the most effective treatment option. During the consultation, the dermatologist will take into account these elements as well as your skin type to determine which is the best course of treatment for you.
