How to get rid of acne?

The appearance of acne can have a huge impact, but the effects of acne go beyond your skin, often affecting self-esteem and self-confidence. Managing acne and acne formation can be tough, with many turning to acne treatment to tackle the condition in the form of topical treatments or laser resurfacing to treat post acne scarring.


When visiting your GP, you may receive prescription acne treatments with acne medication consisting of topical retinoids, topical treatments, azelaid acid, oral antibiotics, or if you are a woman, the combined oral contraceptive pill. And in some cases, often if prescription medications aren’t working, your GP may refer you to an acne clinic or dermatologist.


Here at our award-winning London clinic, our skin specialists create tailored treatment plans using either AviClear, Obagi or other types of skincare.
