What causes Acne?

 Acne is a long-term skin condition generally associated with breakouts of Whiteheads, Pimples Greasy Skin and in some severe cases can lead to scarring.

 The over production of sebum or oil often leaves the skin looking shiny and greasy rather than healthy and vibrant. Over production of sebum can be provoked by a number of factors, including physical and emotional stress, over washing and excess moisturiser application.

Acne  - Treatments

Whilst acne is a treatable skin condition not all treatments are as successful as others!

 Many over the counter products formulated to help with oily skin don’t  penetrate deep enough to help address the problem.

 Obagi CLENZIderm M.D™ Systems are the only prescription based acne treatments that contain a patented, soluble form of 5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) which being more easily absorbed by the skin, has been clinically proven to penetrate the follicles for effective reduction in both P. acnes bacteria and associated lesions.
