Acne Awareness month
Different types of acne

Papules and Pustules

Those identified as bumps and pimples that make an unwelcome appearance. These inflammatory acne lesions can be sensitive and require specialised care.

Nodules and Cysts

The deep-rooted, painful acne that lurks beneath the surface. These severe forms demand attention, and our expert team is here to offer effective solutions.

Hormonal Acne

Often affecting adults, especially women, hormonal acne is triggered by hormonal fluctuations. It’s important to understand its causes to create a personalised treatment plan.

Acne Mechanica

Caused by friction, heat, or pressure on the skin, this type of acne is common among athletes or individuals wearing tight clothing or equipment

Acne Conglobata

A rare and severe form that results in interconnected, deep, and painful nodules. Professional guidance is crucial in managing this condition.

Acne Vulgaris

The most prevalent type, characterised by a combination of whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules. Our clinic offers tailored treatments to combat this common acne.
