Acne is a skin condition that can affect all ages. It occurs when hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells which often results in whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne usually occurs on the face, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne can range in severity and cause emotional distress and scaring.

Risk factors include:

  • Age (most common in teenagers)
  • Hormonal changes
  • Family history (genetics do play a role in acne)
  • Greasy or oily substances on the skin
  • Friction or pressure on your skin
  • Stress 



At Advantage Skin Clinic, we suggest a combined treatment plan involving both a doctor and a dermal clinician. A consultation with one of our doctors can identify acne causes and provide prescriptions for its treatment.
