I have significant experience of treating patients with acne (both teenagers and adults) and have witnessed many times the spiralling effect that it can have on a person’s self-esteem. What seems a simple skin issue to some, can have a huge impact on a person’s psychological well-being.
One of the key challenges of living with acne is the uncertainty about when is the best time to seek medical advice, and I wish that people did this earlier in their journey, to prevent acne from scarring especially. Often, by the time specialist advice is sought, a person has already been through a long struggle of multiple treatments and home remedies, which may have been ineffective or made the problem worse.
I am committed to ensure that each patient receives a customised approach and the most effective treatment options. Ultimately, I strive to get the best results for patients and restore their skin confidence back, since there is a lot that can be done for acne.
