What Causes Acne?

Acne is a skin concern that emerges from the overproduction of oil by the skin sebaceous glands. Whilst the oil normally lubricates the skin, it can sometimes get trapped in blocked oil ducts, bacteria forms and just like magic, a pimple is born.

Hormonal changes and particularly chronic stress can also cause the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands in the skin, and lead to increased levels of acne causing bacteria. This typically results in painful, inflamed lesions that can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs, and virtually any other part of the body.

Pimples and acne are a widely recognized problem that affects almost 30% of Australians, with over 50% of adults now experiencing adult acne later in life, a problem that is thought to be stress induced. Regardless, for most facial scars, acne scarring and blemishes profoundly impact on their self-confidence and contentment.
