How Acne is Caused

1. Clear Pores. This shows a heathy follicle and sebaceous gland.

2. Duct clogged by dead cells, sebum starts to accumulate.

3. Bacterial infection, inflammation triggered – Pimple.

4. Follicle ruptures, pustule with fluid is formed, resulting in Acne.

Acne lesions or pimples happen when the hair follicles or ‘pores’ on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. A plugged follicle is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and create the red bumps and pus-filled red bumps known as pimples.

Scarring caused by acne looks very different from any other scars – it’s the deficit of collagen in the specific region that gives rise to acne scarring. After the acne has subsided, the affected skin region needs collagen to heal and if the skin underlying the subsided acne doesn’t have it, then it tends to get scarred during the healing process thereby giving rise to an ice pick scar.

Different types of acne

Most serious acne scarring is caused by the more severe forms of acne, with nodules more likely to leave permanent scars than other types of acne.

Mild acne

Mild Acne

This refers to the whiteheads or blackheads that most of us get at various times in our lives. It is annoying, but not debilitating.

Moderate acne

This type of acne includes red inflamed pimples called papules and red pimples with white centres called pustules.

Severe acne

Severe Acne

This severe acne causes nodules — painful, pus-filled cysts or lumps to appear under the skin.

Before and after microdermabrasion

Before microdermabrasion


“I’d had bad skin since I can remember, I exacerbated the problem by piling on make up and generally picking at breakouts. People who have never suffered from bad skin don’t realise how debilitating it can be. After spending hundreds of pounds on make up, I was desperate to find a solution that worked. “

After microdermabrasion


“The SkinBase Facials™ have made such a vast improvement to my skin that wearing foundation has for the first time in many years become a choice rather than a necessity, I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that the treatments have made such a huge improvement to my skin. I feel amazing.”

Oliver Wilcox - before microdermabrasion treatment


“I’ve had acne scarring for years and had come to accept that my skin would never look or feel smooth. I decided to try The SkinBase Facial™ following a long list of failed treatments, I really didn’t know what to expect.”

Oliver Wilcox - after microdermabrasion treatment


“I came for treatment for my acne and, the results were fantastic, the deep scars had visibly reduced and the overall feel and look of my skin was much smoother. Unexpectedly I also noticed a real improvement with the lines on my forehead.”
