Practically all acne patients benefit from treatment at the Skin Hospital
Acne is one of the most common skin diseases, and there is extensive knowledge on how it should be treated. However, it is difficult to issue generally applicable instructions, because everyone’s skin is different and requires just the right treatment. You should contact the Skin Hospital if treatment you have tried yourself does not seem to work and the acne persists. You should also contact a dermatologist if your acne seems to continue for a long period, or erupts at an unusual age.
Acne treatment can be roughly divided into four categories, which include a suitable alternative for almost every patient. Treatments are also combined to suit the patient’s needs
Acne can be divided into five main types:
- Ordinary, or papulopustule acne
Ordinary acne creates red pimples containing pus, and both closed and open comedos, better known as blackheads and whiteheads.
- Comedo acne
Comedo acne is less severe than ordinary acne, with the symptoms limited to closed and open comedos.
- Cystic acne
Cystic acne is a more severe form of acne, consisting of hollow, painful infected abscess, causing scars on the skin.
- Acne conglobata
A rare type of acne that is difficult to treat, with double comedos and larger infected abscesses forming on the skin, which give off pus. These most commonly appear on the face, body and buttocks.
- Fulminant acne
A rare type of acne prevalent among young men. Fulminant acne causes not only cystic acne changes, but also strong general symptoms, such as fever, joint pain and osteomyelitis.
Up to 85% of young people suffer from acne
It’s the world’s 8th commonest illness, with around 9.4% of the world’s population being affected. It affects young people in particular: in the 11 to 30 age group, up to 85% are affected.
Acne can also be treated with home care. But even then, you should consult a skin care specialist for advice. The foundation of home care is regular washing and cleansing of impurities. Ask for further details from Nesi’s (online shop) skin care specialists.
Acne may return in adulthood due to factors such as sport or stress
If you develop acne in adulthood, this may be completely normal and be caused by sport, for example. Acne is an illness with multiple symptoms and a strong hormonal component. Acne is related to the same hormones that naturally increase muscle growth. However, dermatologist Carl Kyrklund explains that training cannot be directly blamed for acne. Acne in athletes has been studied from many angles; a common factor among those who train hard is the use of nutritional supplements.Our dermatologist lists three reasons for acne in athletes

Get rid of acne scars – even in adulthood
Acne stars can persist years after the actual illness. Up to 55 per cent of people are left with visible acne scars, which can reduce quality of life later. Acne scars are usually treated with a fraxel laser. A laser treats the scarred areas, making the skin smoother.

Skin rejuvenation can be accelerated with TCA exfoliation, the purpose of which is to remove dead skin and make the edges of acne scars less visible. Acne scars are best treated with a combination of exfoliation and laser. TCA exfoliation is also an effective anti-ageing treatment.Book a time for TCA exfoliation >
