Introducing Dr. Philippa McCaffery
Dr Philippa McCaffery, founder and medical director of Clearskincare Clinics was one of the first Cosmetic Medicine Clinics in Sydney. Dr McCaffery’s interest in Womens Health and in particular, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (the most common cause of Adult Acne in females) expanded the Clinic’s service profile to include skin correction programmes for Acne, Sun Damage, Pigmentation, Facial veins and Scarring. Dr McCaffery graduated from Sydney University Medical School in 1980. Following several years as a hospital resident, she undertook a Masters in Public Health in 1984 and spent the next fourteen years managing large hospitals in both the Public and Private health sectors in Sydney. She returned to clinical practice in 1998 and took over the CACI Clinic in Edgecliff, Sydney in 1999, which soon evolved into the first Clearskincare Clinic. Clearskincare Clinics are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and the Gold Coast with new clinics planned to open soon around Australia in a location close to you.
Why Does Acne Exist?
Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands which produce excess keratin and sebum on the skin that causes dead skin cell adhesion and skin pore blockage. This in turn causes harmful P.acnes, S.epidermis and S.aureus bacterial proliferation within the skin pores. The result leads to inflammation and redness of the skin pores, which take the form of bumpy and painful lesions – characteristic of acne.
How To Get Rid of Acne?
Given that the true cause of Acne and Breakouts are Rogue Sebaceous Glands, the most effective way to getting rid of acne is to treat these overactive sebaceous glands. Most of your skin’s Sebaceous or Oil Glands behave perfectly normally, making the oil that lubricates the surface of the skin. But men and women affected by Acne & Breakouts have Rogue Sebaceous Glands that produce too much oil and too many skin cells, creating Oil & Skin Plugs which start the Acne Cycle. Now that you know the key to getting rid of acne, find out the next step you need to take so you can be free of acne and breakouts TODAY!
