Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.

Any type of acne breakouts can be frustrating, and they can also leave scars on the face and other areas of the body when the body works extremely hard to heal the wounds caused by acne, which leads to an excess of collagen build-up in the skin. This collagen can stay in place permanently, which causes acne scarring. Acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. However, acne scars do not have to be permanent, as at SBEC we can help to get rid of them permanently.

Blackheads and whiteheads
Blackheads are known as “open” comedones are follicles filled with excess oil, debris and dead skin cells which oxidise, giving them a black or dark appearance. Although anyone can suffer from blackheads, they appear most commonly on an oily skin type and can be present at the early stages of mild to moderate acne.
Whiteheads are identified as “close” comedones. The follicles beneath the skin become filled with bacteria and have a very small opening at the top of the skin. Air isn’t able to enter the follicle. The reason why it stays white is that the bacteria inside of it doesn’t undergo a chemical reaction.
