You know very well that your skin doesn’t look or feel its best. You can try many different cosmetics, changes to your diet, and various ointments but at the end of the day the spots return and you feel hopeless and exhausted.
Mild and moderate acne can be successfully treated in skin clinics now. With severe acne I sometimes would advise prescription or over the counter medications available at the local pharmacy for daily skin care. But for the majority of my clients, the anti-acne regimen I provide in my clinic is sufficient to help with most issues.
I have selected treatments that I find are the most effective acne treatment for my clients. So far I have achieved very good results and I am positive that I can help you too.

...that the full cycle takes 4 weeks as this is the time required for complete skin cycle renovation. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest and back.
It has great efficacy and is highly recommended for teenagers over 16 year old including boys and young men.
Most of young people experience skin imperfections such as black heads, white heads and spots. These may be hormone related and often occur on the forehead, chin and along the jaw line. No type of acne should be ignored and taking action early can prevent its development and potential scarring (see Scar Treatment).
