Acne is one of the most common skin complaints with a considerable proportion of people experiencing some degree of it at one point in their lives.

Acne can have huge emotional and psychological implications as it can affect people’s self confidence in a significant way. 

It most commonly develops on the face, back and chest and is characterised by blackheads and whiteheads (open and closed comedones), papules (bumps under the skin), pus-filled spots (pustules) or cysts.

Its development is multifactorial and the cause often determines its development and severity. If left untreated, it can also lead to scarring and hyperpigmentation.

Dr Fiona will assess your skin type during your initial consultation and discuss the best treatment options depending on your area of concern.
