What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that includes things like pimples, cysts and blackheads.

It generally affects the face, but can also appear on the back, chest and shoulders. Severe cases of acne can cause scarring, uneven skin tone or pitting.

Four main factors cause acne: excess oil production, bacteria, excess activity of a type of hormone (androgens) and hair follicles that are clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Some other factors that worsen acne include menstruation, with acne flare ups a week before, pregnancy, weight, genetics, diet, stress and certain medications. 

There are multiple preventative and acute management treatments available for acne in both oral and topical forms.

FAQ

What are my acne treatment options?

There are many different kinds of acne treatment, including topical agents, oral treatment options, hormonal treatment including the contraceptive pill and roaccutane.

What is roaccutane?

Roaccutane is a prescription acne medication that is only prescribed by dermatologists for severe cases of persistent acne. Rosemary does not currently prescribe roaccutane.

How long do I need to be on acne treatment?

The duration of your treatment will vary based on what you are prescribed. Facial regimen is indefinite, while topical treatment can range from 3 to 6 months and then be used as needed. Oral treatment can be prescribed from 6 to 12 months.

Why is it important to treat acne?

No matter your age, acne can have a devastating effect on your confidence. Some acne can even cause scarring and pigmentation which can be irreversible or very difficult to treat. That’s why being prescribed a personalised acne treatment plan is so important.

Why can’t I take certain medications for my skin if I am planning pregnancy or am pregnant?

Certain medications to treat pimples and acne are contraindicated for pregnancy or pregnancy planning as they can affect the health and development of the fetus. It is important to inform your healthcare providers if you are family planning, are pregnant or breastfeeding so they can prescribe a suitable acne treatment plan for you.

When would I need further investigation?

Dermatology review may be required if your acne isn't improving from the treatment you've been prescribed or if you're experiencing severe scarring.
