ACNE

WHAT IS ACNE?


Acne is a condition involving hair follicles and sebaceous glands of the skin. When trapped sebum gets infected, it can become inflamed and result in swelling, redness, and pain. This can be unsightly and if left untreated can further lead to permanent damage and scarring.

Acne is a common skin condition arising from clogged hair follicles under the skin, often due to a mix of sebum and dead skin cells. This blockage results in lesions like pimples or zits, affecting skin clarity and health.
