Acne is a skin condition caused by an over-activity of the glands that secrete oily substances onto the skin. When pores get blocked, this oil is trapped and bacteria begin to grow. If the pore becomes inflamed, a red, swollen pimple appears.

While most commonly seen on the face, there can be issues with acne on the chest, neck, shoulders and back. Blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts are all forms of acne.

There are several options available to help clear acne ranging from medication to chemicl peels to the use of proper skin care products. Often the most successful treatment involves a combination of approaches. SkinfitMD in Surrey also has treatments for acne scars.

From cleansers and toners, to moisturizers and sunscreens, we will choose products that will not only help your acne, but will revitalize your skin without aggravating it.

  • Prescription medication

There is a wide range of prescription products that are effective acne treatments such as topical retinoids, antibiotics, birth control pills (for women only) and Accutane. These medications often become the foundation of acne treatment and are used in combination with the above treatments to help clear acne.
