Acne is a skin condition which can be painful, challenging and affect one’s mental well-being, and confidence and can result in scarring. Acne skin is characterised by red pimples on the skin due to inflamed or infected oil glands and can be present amongst all age groups. We provide several solutions to help you regain control over your skin. There are three stages of Acne – mild, moderate and severe. Acne can occur commonly on the face, neck, shoulders and back. The swelling of the skin is from the oil gland, hair follicle and skin cells all getting “plugged” together, causing bacteria leading to an infection. Although acne is prominent in our teenage years, some cases follow us until we are well into our adult life. The main causes of Acne can be varied and can include some medications that contain androgen, lithium greasy cosmetics, hormonal changes, emotional stress and menstruation. Some adults have naturally oily skin, and for others, it is because they are lacking a regular skin care regime. Still others continue to experience hormonal shifts due to menstrual cycle fluctuations, menopause, and endocrine system disorders. Therefore, many adults can experience breakouts. So, since there are some elements we can’t change such as hormones and menstruation, we can provide treatments to gradually improve and develop healthier skin. Our treatments and products strengthen and improve your skin texture, and target overactive sebaceous glands, preventing future breakouts. Our doctors will be able to provide a tailored treatment plan suitable for your skin type. Solutions: Chemical peels, LED light therapy, Laser rejuvenation, Fractional CO2, Pico Laser, Radiofrequency Microneedling
To avoid incurring a fee and so that we can have time to fit another patient into your cancelled appointment slot, we require cancellations to be made more than 2 working days before the appointment. Cancellations which are made 48 hours (2 working days) or less before a consultation/treatment will incur a fee. We reserve the right to refuse any further appointments for patients that have 3 Non Attendance of appointments. Late Arrival Policy We run a tight appointment schedule and do our best to run on time. We also understand that life isn’t perfect. If a patient is running late, then we will do our best to fit them in. If they are more than 15 minutes late and if the next patient has arrived, we will see the next patient, and then try and fit the late patient in after. If a patient is running so late that they have missed their entire appointment and it is the next person’s appointment, we will see the next appointment. We will attempt to still fit the patient in later in the day, but it might require some waiting time on that day, or it might not be possible and the late patient will have to be rescheduled. Thank you for your cooperation.
