Acne is one of the most widespread, persistent and psychologically distressing skin conditions, with 80 per cent of 11 to 30 year olds affected at some point in their lives. It is a systemically caused inflammatory skin condition. Sadly, there is currently no cure, only treatment. But treatments have evolved considerably over recent years, allowing sufferers of acne to enjoy clearer, smoother, skin with far fewer flare-ups.
Everyone's acne is different, so it is vitally important you receive the correct diagnosis from a medical professional. Together we are best equipped to treat and help you regain control over your skin. Our medical professionals are experts in dealing with acne-prone skin, helping over 4,000 sufferers each year. So you can be sure you are in the safest, most knowledgeable hands.

To prevent acne scars from developing it's important to treat your acne properly in the first instance; if you have active acne this will need to be treated before you start treatment for scars. You should also avoid picking, and squeezing your spots as this may worsen marks and scarring.
Many people get confused between what they think are acne scars, but are in fact acne marks. Scars are deep indentations in the skin and much harder to remove, deep acne scars usually require laser treatment to truly get rid of them.

Rosacea is a common, persistent and potentially psychologically distressing skin condition, with an estimated one in ten UK sufferers. It affects more women than men, typically in their 30s to 50s; however symptoms can begin to show from early 20s. It is primarily seen on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin, as well as the neck and chest and is often mistaken for acne, eczema or some other skin allergy. Left untreated, symptoms will worsen, so early action is advised. Sadly, there is currently no cure, only treatment and avoidance of triggers. But treatments have evolved considerably over recent years, allowing sufferers of rosacea to enjoy clearer, smoother, stress-free skin. At sk:n we offer market-leading, clinically effective treatments and products. We understand and empathise with your battle against rosacea and can help.
