    Our dedicated team of doctors have decades of experience in treating stubborn acne with many patients,

    Acne can be an uncomfortable and stressful skin disease. Acne is one of the most common skin problems faced by teenagers and young adults. Acne arises as sebaceous glands present in hair follicle start to secrete oil or grease which in turn produces sebum, a solid white substance. When skin cells in the follicle shed, they mix with the sebum and block the follicle. As more and more sebum gathers, it swells out on the skin and creates an ideal environment for the propionibacterium acnes bacteria. Common sites for Acne are face, chest and back. The bacteria builds up along with other debris from the skin surface blocking the follicle causing inflammation giving rise to blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and pimples. Acne has several stages, each distinguished by the type of spots that you are suffering with. This may include common spots such as whiteheads and blackheads, or more severe spots such as cysts and nodules.

    Many acne patients suffer from low self-confidence, low self-esteem especially for those who have acne on their face.

    Stages of acne


    What can trigger acne flare-ups?
    There are a number of factors that can make acne flare up or lead to “breakouts”, although triggers can vary from person to person. Avoiding the things that you notice may make your acne worse is a good way to help control your acne. For example,

    CosmeticsMake-up and hair care products can clog pores. When shopping, look for the following acne-friendly terms on product labels: “oil-free”, “non-comedogenic”, or “non-acnegenic”.

    Physical pressure
    Pressure due to a chin strap, phone receiver, sports helmet, headband, guitar strap, bra strap and other tight clothing can lead to localized acne that develops at the point of skin contact.

    Sweating can worsen acne in some people. Most likely, it is because sweating helps to clog pores, especially if trapped under clothing.

    Washing your face twice a day with a mild cleanser is recommended for acne-prone skin. Cleaning it more often, scrubbing/exfoliating, or using strong cleansers or astringent products (i.e. toners with alcohol) can actually strip the skin and irritate it, which can lead to more acne.

    Certain medications can cause acne to flare up, such as oral corticosteroids, some contraceptive pills (progestin only), and anti-convulsives, to name a few.

    Menstrual cycle
    Many girls and women may notice that their acne flares up as they are nearing their monthly period.

    Picking or squeezing
    Touching acne lesions can make them worse and raise the risk of permanent scarring. Squeezing or popping pimples can cause an eruption of sebum and bacteria into surrounding skin tissues leading to more swelling and redness and possibly infection.

    Actually, no study has yet proven that any specific foods or dietary habits can cause or worsen acne. However, if you find that a certain kind of food seems to aggravate your acne, try removing it from your diet. Removing entire food groups from your diet, though, is not healthy so is not recommended.

    What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

    What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
