Acne Treatments

Acne is a skin condition usually caused by hormonal inbalance in the body, it occurs most commonly during the teenage years and early adulthood, but also during pregnancy and the menopause. It can also be caused by stress and using incorrect skin products. It is characterised by oily skin, open and blocked pores causing black heads, spots, and sometimes cysts.

Your skin can be significantly improved with a combination of professional skin care treatments, a good skin care regime, diet, and also may require medical intervention.

My aim is to help you improve your skin, by giving you advice on skin care products, professional skin treatments, and home care instructions. Consistency is really important with improving the appearance of acne, so committing to a course of treatments or programme is really important for you to see the results you want. Your programme will consist of a course of treatments and will include home care products which I will recommend for you idividually.
