What causes acne?

Although acne is prevalent among young adults, it is not uncommon for people to experience flare-ups later in life. Hormonal changes are the leading cause of acne and can occur during teenage years, menstrual cycles, pregnancy or stressful circumstances. [1]

Acne symptoms

Symptoms of acne

The most common symptoms associated with acne include inflammation, bumps, pimples and swelling. [2] If left untreated, acne can also lead to acute tenderness and scarring.

Topical applications are used to nourish and heal the skin, while oral antibiotics may be prescribed to moderate acne-causing bacteria and reduce further inflammation. [2]

Frequently asked questions

Acne occurs when dead skin cells and oil clog hair follicles on the skin, causing bacteria to multiply and inflame. There are many types of acne, including whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. Acne can present as occasional mild breakouts, or severe, painful chronic acne. [2]

Our hub.health medical team have extensive knowledge and experience in prescribing acne treatments. They only use ingredients they know and trust. These include prescription retinoids, hyaluronic acid, topical antibiotics, niacinamide, and azelaic acid.

The best acne treatment for you is dependent on your skin type, skin concerns, and the root cause of your acne. Mild or occasional breakouts can often be treated with over-the-counter pharmacy products. Recurring mild to moderate acne may require a prescription topical treatment, such as topical antibiotics or retinoids. [2] Treatment for severe acne may require oral antibiotics or retinoids. Skin that is sensitive or prone to conditions like eczema or rosacea will require extra caution.

Your assigned hub.health clinician will work with you to determine the best acne treatment for your specific skin type and concerns.

With hub.health, taking care of your skin is simple. Our medical team will provide instructions specific to your prescription upon approval.  

As a general guide, once your acne treatment has been delivered to your door:

  • Apply your acne treatment once daily in the evening, after cleansing and before moisturising. Make sure you wash your hands well after applying.

  • Due to the potent ingredients in your acne treatment, we recommend starting with a staggered application schedule – every second or third evening before building up to daily usage.

  • You should start seeing improvements in just weeks, with full results visible after 3 months.

Our medical team will work with you to determine the best acne treatment for your specific skin type and concerns.

If you notice a reaction to the acne treatment you’ve been prescribed, immediately stop using the treatment and consult with a member of our medical team for further investigation. You can start a consultation with a clinician via the patient portal.

hub.health clinicians are committed to providing the highest standard of care. To prescribe you the best acne treatment for your skin, our medical team will require photos of your skin, but don’t worry, confidentiality will always be maintained. You can upload your photos via the patient portal once you’ve completed your initial assessment.

Your initial consultation will cost $35, payable prior to doctor’s review. If you’re prescribed acne treatment, the cost is from $40 per month. We’ll express post your acne treatment each month, so you’ll never run out. You can cancel, pause, or delay your acne treatment at any time without cancellation fee.

In most cases a clinician will review your assessment and respond within 24 hours.

Once your treatment has been paid for, it will be dispatched within 1-3 days and sent via express delivery. Your product is shipped in an Australia Post package, which means it will be completely discreet.

Of course! If you log into your profile and head to the ‘Products’ tab, you will see a ‘Manage Treatment’ button. Click this and you’ll see the ability to send a message to your clinician. If you’re having any issues, just drop us a line at [email protected]

Yes, as part of joining hub.health, we will handle your repeat deliveries to ensure that you never miss one. If you ever wish to stop receiving your treatment, just cancel in the patient platform, or alternatively email [email protected]
