What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition many people experience in Singapore. It is caused when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and/or dead skin cells. This will lead to whiteheads, blackheads or pimples forming. Although acne most commonly affects teenagers, anyone can be suffering from acne breakouts at any age.

There is no real cause for concern if you have acne. However, severe cases of acne can cause extreme physical or emotional pain. If acne is not treated, it can cause acne scarring which may take a long time to heal and fade.

Acne is treatable at any stage with numerous effective treatments on the market today. The sooner you address your acne problem, the easier it is to treat and reduce your risk of acne scarring.
