Acne & Rosacea Treatment

Acne
A Moderate Case of Acne

Maxine has attended several specialist dermatology training days. This has increased her knowledge and ability to treat clients with a variety of skin complaints. The two most common are acne and rosacea.

Acne Vulgaris is a common disease of the pilosebaceous unit. It affects both sexes and can peak in teenage years, also in 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. It occurs on the face, chest and back. There are four grades/severity of acne. This causes physical skin changes, from blackheads to large cystic lesions and scarring.

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition whose exact cause is unknown. It’s normal characteristics are facial redness, burning/stinging, papules/pustules and visible red veins.

Rosacea normally starts between the ages of 30 and 50 years, more common in females. Typically patients are fair skinned. A large proportion of these people are undiagnosed and untreated.

There are primary and secondary features of Rosacea, also four subtypes.

It can range from flushing, pustules and broken capillaries to eye problems and nose thickening. Although the exact cause is unknown, certain trigger factors may worsen the condition. These include emotional stress, hot drinks, alcohol, spicy foods, exercise, hot/cold weather, hot baths/saunas.

Acne and Rosacea often has a negative psychological and social impact on the individual. Many sufferers are ashamed of the way they look, loose self confidence and can become depressed.

How Can it be Treated?

Maxine will undertake a full assessment with each client, including background and medical information, making a diagnosis, to formulating a treatment plan. Early intervention is important if possible to manage and treat the condition more successfully. A combination of treatments are sometimes required including topical treatments and systemic treatments. These can all be prescribed for you and provided by Maxine. She will also seek regular re-assessment and support to each client, as the treatment process will take several months.
