Acne is an extremely common problem, which can affect a person’s confidence in their appearance significantly. Sometimes acne leads to serious emotional problems and it is essential that patients get effective treatment and advice.

We do NOT offer treatment with isotretinoin (‘Roaccutane’); this is best provided in a hospital based service. If you think you need isotretinoin, ask your GP to refer you or book to see a Consultant Dermatologist privately.
