Our consultant dermatologists know what a huge impact skin disease can have on your life.  Early accurate diagnosis and treatment can bring about an excellent improvement in quality of life even for incurable conditions.  Our dermatologists are able to diagnose and treat most skin conditions, including conditions of the nail, scalp and genitals, not just Acne.

Acne Overview

Acne is a common condition comprising blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and greasy skin.  It can affect the face, scalp, chest, back, armpits, groin or indeed any area where hair grows.  The things to look out for in acne are whether it is leaving permanent scars or causing psychological stress or even depression, in which case treatment should be sought urgently.

Acne Treatment Options

Acne can be treated with tablets or lotions.  The basis is to treat either the bacterial/infective component with antibiotics, the hormonal component with hormone suppressing contraceptive tables (women only) or the grease-gland over-activity with retinoids.

Remember, although many skin conditions are not curable, acne often is.  See our before and after images showing how treatment can render the skin clear.  There is no need to suffer acne.  Get in touch and let one of our consultants treat your condition.
