Acne in Children
Acne is mostly associated with children going through puberty. It is a very common condition in both teenagers and young adults, and acne is most common in girls aged between 14 – 17.
Boys also commonly suffer from acne, but slightly later than girls, from the ages of 16 -19. This is only because boys start puberty later than girls.
Many teenagers and young adults will go through periods of mild acne and more severe acne as they grow up, and most of the time, their symptoms will start to improve as they get older.
Acne in Adults
Adult acne is a term applied to acne that affects anyone over the age of 25. Acne will usually disappear by the time a person hits their mid-twenties, but for some people, acne carries on throughout their adult life.
According to research, around 3% of adults over the age of 35 have acne. However, once women hit the menopause, acne is far less likely and isn’t often seen in women over 44.
Without treatment, adult acne is unlikely just to go away on its own, and since there’s a high risk of scarring we would recommend talking to an expert to treat your adult acne.

Medical acne treatments
In the course of many acne treatments, medicine is often the first step. Medical treatments can suppress the inflammation on the skin, correct the skin function and eradicate the acne producing bacteria until the acne disappears.
The medical treatments we provide are in the form of topical creams, topical retinoids and topical antibiotics.
Our chemical peels are applied to the skin to stimulate new growth and remove dead skin cells that clog up the skin causing acne. The chemical peels we provide can also be tailored specifically towards targeting the acne causing issues within the skin. This procedure is designed to improve the acne and the appearance of your skin. At your face consultation, we will discuss the different chemical peel options with you so that you can choose the right chemical peel for you.
At The Wellington Clinic, we use chemical peels such as Obagi Radiance Blue Peel, The Perfect Peel with or without the Acne Booster and The Perfect Peel Superblend.
