Your skin is the organ that comes into contact with the rest of the world. It prevents dehydration and keeps harmful microbes out. Your skin helps you feel things like heat, cold and pain. When the balance alters its time to seek help and develop a good in clinic and at home routine.

There are two main types of acne: non-inflammatory and inflammatory.Acne can cause significant negative psychological effects including lowered self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. The most common types of pimples are blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.

Dermatologists diagnose acne vulgaris in three grades of severity: mild, moderate, and severe.


Mild acne is characterised by a small number of acne lesions (less than 20 comedones and 15 lesions).


People with moderate acne typically have between 20 and 100 comedones, and 15 to 50 inflammatory lesions.


When an individual is diagnosed with severe acne, a dermatologist not only considers comedones and surface level lesions, but they’ll also look to see if there are any cystic lesions present. Severe acne is categorised using the following metrics: 5 pseudocysts or more, 100 comedones or more, 50 inflammatory lesions or more

Many symptoms such as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all types of acne.  The good news is that it can be helped by developing a good skincare and in-clinic treatments.

Scars are a natural part of the healing process.  Most will fade and become paler and almost invisible over time, but sometimes they don’t fade enough, making you feel self conscious about them.

There is hope:
