Acne refers to the common skin condition whereby an individual’s hair follicles become congested with oils and dead skin cells.

An outbreak of lesions (or pimples) occurs when these follicles become blocked with an oily substance called sebum, which builds up under the skin causing swelling and inflammation.

Most often these breakouts occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.

There are various types of acne such as whiteheads, blackhead, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts which can be treated in various ways. A multidimensional approach utilising a combination of the following devices can be used to prevent and treat acne.
