Teen Acne

Tenn Acne Geelong


We’ve all experienced the odd unsightly spot or two in our lifetimes, but when these spots turn to acne, it can be incredibly difficult to manage. What’s more, the cost of makeup where applicable and skincare products can add up. Acne can impact your day-to-day life, and can be quite embarrassing, especially when it’s near impossible to cover up.

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that is most common among teenagers and adolescents, but can affect people of all ages. We can help with Acne Treatment.

Suffering from acne? Contact Skin Nerd Geelong for a consultation with one of our friendly and experienced clinicians. We are experts in acne treatments in Geelong.



Acne is generally the result of a number of factors. It is predominantly genetic and hormonal, but may also be the result of:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetic predisposal
  • Hormonal changes – an increase in the androgen hormone can result in acne
  • Immune system
  • Blocked hair follicles
  • Lifestyle factors such as excessive stress, poor diet or stress and anxiety

Risk factors for the development of acne include menstrual cycle, anxiety and stress, hot and humid climates, and some forms of oil-based make up and skin care.

At Skin Nerd Geelong we understand the wide-ranging implications acne can have and work with you to treat all aspects of acne.

Common physical side effects of acne include scarring and pigmentation in previously inflamed areas. We have a number of treatments that can help with the physical side effects of acne, such as laser treatments, chemical peels and skin care consultations.



There are countless complicated acne treatments out there, ranging from expensive home topical treatments, chemical or drug products, plus diet or lifestyle changes that claim to remedy the situation. With so much conflicting information on the topic, it can be confusing knowing what to choose. Fortunately, the team at Skin Nerd can provide you with guidance and information.

We offer professional, knowledgeable and effective acne treatment in Geelong.
