Acne can occur at any stage of life whether you are male or female, and regardless of your skin type. It can cause a huge impact on confidence and self-esteem, but we can help you in a gentle but effective way without the need for medication.
It can happen at any point in your life. The normal acne triggers are:
What causes the actual acne/spot is an inflammation of the skin bacteria. This is often by the side of a hair follicle where the oil glands are. A blockage of the gland is what causes the spot to form.
Routes to clear skin
Inflamed or angry skin needs a gentle and consistent approach to help it recover. We work with a range of treatments to build a tailored approach for your skin. Our solutions are working across gentle exfoliation, against the bacteria, and to rehydrate, repair and rebalance your skin.

We look at your skin health from a holistic viewpoint
To get the best results for you, we need to work in partnership. You won’t get the sustainable results you want from just our treatments, or just from you making some changes at home. But, by working together and coming up with a plan that you can stick to at home, coupled with a clear treatment path for your acne, we can change your skin health.
Treatment from 13 years old
With parental consent and with the parent in attendance, we can now treat anyone from 13 years old and over. This is an addition to our clinic insurance cover.
The benefits of being able to work with this younger audience is that we can help them clear up their skin, feel better about themselves and prevent long-term skin damage; like facial scarring as a result of prolonged acne problems.
Because our approach is holistic, we can talk to young people about the importance of what they are putting into their bodies; that diet and water is very important to skin health.
We can also work to determine what the specific triggers might be for them. Being able to offer food intolerance testing at this stage is a great addition. Sometimes there is an underlying issue that can be a gamechanger for them, and not just for skin health.
It’s a commitment
Recovering from acne prone skin and achieving long term skin health, is not an overnight quick fix. We will work with you to determine the best route for your skin. This might include a course of a particular treatment, or a mix of different treatments.
You never need to be embarrassed
We have honestly seen and treated all types and stages of acne. Some of us at the clinic have suffered ourselves, which is what led us into this profession in the first place.
We want to help you achieve skin you are proud of and we have all the tools to get you there.
