What Is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by the appearance of pimples, blackheads, and cysts, primarily on the face, neck, chest, and back. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, often exacerbated by hormonal changes, stress, and certain lifestyle factors.


Acne is more than a skin condition; its effects extend to various aspects of an individual's life:

  • Physical Discomfort: Severe acne can be painful and lead to persistent skin irritation.

  • Emotional Impact: It often affects self-esteem, potentially leading to stress and anxiety, especially in social situations.

  • Risk of Scarring: Without proper treatment, acne can leave lasting scars and marks on the skin.

Recognising these multifaceted impacts, COSMEDIC is committed to offering effective and empathetic solutions for acne treatment.
