London Acne Treatment Clinic
- Does your acne affect your confidence?
- Have you tried over the counter products but still suffer with problem skin?
- Once your acne has cleared, are you left with scarring on your skin?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Fortunately, acne is treatable and Dr Daniel Glass and the team at The Dermatology Clinic are experienced in resolving even the trickiest outbreaks. Using a wide range of topical and systematic treatments at our Harley Street, London based clinic, we can clear up your acne and minimise scarring to help restore your confidence.
An acne-type rash can occur at any age, but affects virtually every teenager. During our teenage years, our bodies undergo hormonal changes that cause glands under the skin’s surface to produce excess oil called sebum, which leaves the body through our pores. When the pores are blocked, the oil becomes trapped underneath, causing a pimple to appear.
This is why we get mild acne in the form of blackheads and whiteheads. Spots usually appear on the face, but they can sometimes be found on the neck, chest and back as well.
The acne rash is a reaction to a bacterium known as P. acnes, which multiplies in the natural oil found in the skin pores, forming comedones (blackheads). This can spark an immune reaction that causes inflammation. The skin reddens and the pimple becomes enlarged and can fill with pus.
Severe acne is difficult to treat without professional help, but experts at The Dermatology Clinic offer a number of treatments that produce excellent results and restore the skin with minimal scarring.
Can anyone suffer from acne?
Although most common in teenagers, acne can occur at any age and our team is experienced in treating adult acne using a range of effective treatment methods.
How is acne treated?
Acne can be treated in many ways, depending on its severity. Our experienced dermatologists in London can help to clear acne even when over the counter products haven’t worked.
Topical treatments include creams, lotions and gels that are applied to the skin to reduce redness. We might also prescribe antibiotics to help clear your acne. If your acne is severe or inflamed, it’s important to begin treatment as soon as possible to lower the risk of scarring.
If your acne is so severe that it doesn’t respond to the above treatments, we may prescribe medication that reduces the production of sebum so the pores are kept clear.
When your acne is cleared, The Dermatology Clinic team can also help you work out a regimen to prevent further outbreaks.
