Understanding Acne

Acne is a common skin condition with symptoms including spots, excess sebum and hot or painful skin. Almost everybody experiences acne on the face at some point in their lives.

Some sufferers also contend with acne on their chest and backs too. It is thought that 95% of those aged between 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent. If you are one of them, it can be difficult to know where to begin.

Teenage Acne

Those aged between 14 and 19 are most likely to be affected by acne, as the condition is linked to fluctuating hormone levels which is prevalent during puberty.

Acne during Menopause

Hormone fluctuations are also common during peri-menopause, so some women may find they suffer with acne later in life too.

Acne Symptoms

Acne is a multifactorial condition, with symptoms such as blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts.

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
