How to reduce adult acne

Finding an aggravated and red spot on the face is not a pleasant experience, but having a whole mass of them is even worse, especially if we take pride in our appearance. Adult acne is very common, affecting both male and female patients of all ages. Far from a problem associated with teenagers, adult acne can be an upsetting and debilitating condition.

You may have tried high-street shops, buying and trying every skincare product you can possibly find, or spent many visits at the doctor’s being prescribed creams and tablets that just won’t cut it. If your spots now affecting your life and your self-esteem as well as just your skin and you don’t know what else to do it might be time to seek aesthetic treatment from APSARAS Clinic in Coventry. We help patients from across the West Midlands including cities such as Birmingham, Derby, Wolverhampton and Leicester, uncover the smooth, fresh and healthy skin they long for.

First of all, in order to successfully treat the symptoms of adult acne, it’s important to find out what form of acne the patient has. There are numerous reasons for adult acne to develop, and it may occur at any age.

Acne comes in many guises but essentially it is a common skin condition that often affects teenagers and young adults of both sexes. This however can change person to person, and we even see patients in their fifties suffering with adult acne. It can affect the face or the body, and you will need a full skin assessment to discover if the skin concern is indeed acne.

Acne pimples or pustules can range from mild surface blackheads and whiteheads, to red and inflamed spots or cysts. They can have long lasting effects which may result in sore red blotches and even scarring. The main influences of acne are hormones, oily skin, bacteria and inflammation.

A hormone called androgen causes the sebaceous glands to enlarge, which is perfectly normal, but when they become over stimulated is when acne appears. Over stimulation of the sebaceous glands causes it to produce extra oil which mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells. The extra oil effects this normal process and makes it clog up which, in turn, causes acne.

As the glands clog more bacteria is produced and when this happens, naturally, your body will send an army of white cells to attack the infected area, which results in inflammation. Stress can also cause this to happen too.

Treating adult acne with aesthetic treatments

There many types of aesthetic treatments available to calm, reduce or clear adult acne. But acne is highly unique in each person that suffers with it and so treatments to suit your specific type of acne will vary.

If antibiotics or prescribed creams aren’t helping then perhaps our range of skin and aesthetic treatments could be the answer for you. APSARAS Clinic in Coventry has non-surgical aesthetic treatments for spots and blackheads, adult acne, and usually take from 2-6 sessions to see results. We offer solutions such as Deramrolling, chemical skin peels, and light therapy.

Even if you are seeking aesthetic treatments, keeping your skin clean is most definitely important each and every day, although this may not prevent spots from occurring or spreading. You should aim to wash the skin twice a day with a mild soap or cleanser and moisturise if skin tends to be dry.

Booking a consultation is the most important part of a patient’s journey as it gives the APSARAS Clinic team a chance to listen to your concerns and advise the best aesthetic treatment, or combination of treatments, to suit your requirements. During this relaxed one-to-one session we will carry out a skin assessment and discuss your options in detail – we tailor all treatments to the patient’s specific concerns, so a consultation is absolutely vital.
