Acne is a horrible problem which affects not only teenagers but both men and women of all ages. Offering a variety of acne treatments and with thirty years experience of treating thousands of clients with acne, we are confident we can help you. Acne affects people to different degrees, from a few problem spots to painful pustules on the face, back and chest. Often clients come in despair having been on prescription medication, sometimes for years.
Many acne sufferers have skin which is both dry and oily at the same time. Most people would think this was impossible but if you are a sufferer then you will know it can be true. Your skin can be dry due to the lack of water, yet oily at the same time due to an excess of sebum (oil). Two totally different factors to deal with at the same time. This can be caused by over-enthusiasm when cleansing to get rid of the excess oil on the skin, resulting in stripping the skin of it’s protective layer and leaving it dry and flakey. Many clients despair at this stage and come looking for help.
During the consultation, which is free of charge, the condition will be assessed and we will suggest how we can help you, and how you can help yourself.
Treatments often include peels or a deep cleanse in the clinic and careful care of your skin at home.
We are generous with our time when advising acne clients, because we need you to understand what we are proposing and we need you to continue to support your treatment by having a careful routine at home. So we give you very precise instructions regarding home care!
Below are a few of the treatments we use to fight acne, but each person’s treatment will vary according to the skin condition, and will change in time, as we make progress.
