Fifi is getting older now, growing up in so many ways. She is getting very fussy about her personal hygiene, about her hair getting greasy or her nails dirty. It is nice to see her worrying about things like this, things that are within her control. One of the things I remember suffering from as a teenager was acne. Sadly as a teenager there is not much you can do to prevent it, but is there anything you can do to help yourself?
I have been contacted by Sk:n to share with you what they offer, its the sort of company we all hope we never need but it is great for people that do. Acne is not just a skin condition - for some people it destroys there confidence and ultimately as far as they are concerned their lives.
Most of us have been there in our teenage years: staring endlessly into the mirror wondering,'What's the best spot cream?''Is there a cure for acne?'
We know how distressing it can be for teenagers who suffer with acne and we're on hand to help by offering a free in depth skin consultation with one of our experts who will tailor a skin treatment and products regime to you.
I was lucky I outgrew mine but I know some of my friends at school were more affected than I was. Some of them really suffered badly and were left with marks and pitting on their faces.
Sk:n offer various treatments for people like them, they tell us
Acne scarring occurs in the dermis, which is the area of skin immediately below the surface that acts somewhat like a cushion. When people suffer with acne, the dermis becomes inflamed as the body attempts to repair the wound created when scaly skin, pimples or blackheads are burst or otherwise removed.In more severe cases, the body can effectively put "too much effort" into dealing with the wound, meaning that there is an excess of collagen built up. This collagen may stay in place permanently, creating the scarring. This scarring often occurs in a way that creates a pit in the skin, sometimes known as an ice pick scar

It is not only teenagers who are bothered.
Acne is often considered a predominantly teenage affliction, but it can also affect many people long into adulthood. People can suffer from adult acne into their twenties, thirties and even as late as their forties. In such cases the effect on self-esteem and self-confidence can be serious and can even cause depression, which is why sufferers often seek adult acne treatment.and so they also offer acne scar treatment
Ross Marriott, 21 recently visited sk:n clinics after researching treatments through their website and decided that Dermaroller treatment sounded like it could be the solution he was looking for. Ross talks about his experiences with acne scarring and how his life has changed with the help of sk:n clinics and Dermaroller.
After an in-depth consultation with Dr Askari Townshend at the Northampton sk:n clinic, I was excited to start treatment. He explained all about how Dermaroller works and how I would optimise results by following a regime at home too. At first I was worried that it would hurt but that fear soon went away as a numbing cream was applied to my face prior to treatment that relieved any discomfort.
I have been lucky that mine has not reoccurred and that none of my children were ever bothered by it, and I hope the same for the grandchildren but Sk:n's website certainly has some useful information.
