Acne (Pimples )

What is Acne?

Acne is the most common skin disease in adolescence and for many it can continue into adulthood(20% men and 35% women).It typically affects the areas where there is the densest population of sebaceous glands and hair follicles( face,upper arms,shoulders upper chest and the back).

Though not dangerous, they can leave some ugly scars and pigmentation behind. Successful acne treatment varies from individual to individual. At Skinsecrets we offer array of treatments which includes both topical and oral medications along with peels,lasers,injections and led light therapy.
