Around 95% of people between 11 and 30 in the UK experience acne. But here’s the good news: we can help you out.

What is acne?

Acne is a very common skin condition. So don’t freak out. It usually starts at puberty, but it can also start later for some people. The effects could go from a few spots on the face, neck, back and chest to a more serious problem that may cause scarring and impact self-confidence. Acne usually tends to disappear by the late teens or early twenties, but it can persist for longer in some cases.

What causes acne?

Hormones, my friend. During puberty, your body experiences a lot of hormonal changes. Certain hormones cause the oil glands in the skin to produce more oil (called sebum). This increase in oil production becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and causes redness, swelling and pus formation. The hormones also cause the hair follicle to thicken causing blockages (blocked pores).

How do our acne treatments work?

When acne becomes an issue for you, the medicines you get at a retail store may just not be enough and you need something stronger. FromMars is a registered UK pharmacy and our doctors will assess your needs and can prescribe a combination topical gel called treclin which contains an antibiotic and Tretinoin. The antibiotic works to reduce the infection of the spots and prevent the growth of bacteria in affected skin. The Tretinoin has an anti-inflammatory effect and improves the quality of the skin by stimulating cell growth and repair. This dual action approach has been medically proven to be very effective and is often used as the first choice when you need a real solution for acne.
