Acne and Rosacea

Acne and Rosacea are both inflammatory skin conditions that have different pathways of disease but a similar outward presentation which can be distressing to the patient. Meyer Clinic understands both conditions well and undertakes a thorough consultation for patients including history taking, a discussion re hormone levels and how these may be affecting skin and can devise an effective treatment plan. Treatment in all instances is highly effective and it is very satisfying to see positive results for patients.

Acne can affect any part of a patient’s face and body, but mainly impacts the face, neck and back. It can cause skin scarring and can also affect a patient’s self-esteem. Treatment options with Meyer Clinic include medicated washes, tailored skin treatments, nutritional advice, chemical peels, LED light therapy and microneedling. Medication can also be considered including Spironolactone, which is safe and effective to use as part of a skin care regime. There are also many options to treat acne scarring and this can also be discussed during the consultation.

Rosacea mostly affects the faces of men and women between the ages of 30 – 60 yrs. It is a chronic condition that results in either pustules, or redness or both. Like the Meyer Clinic approach to treating acne, taking a thorough medical history is necessary and there are multiple treatment options available, ranging from simple skin care regime changes, nutritional advice, medicated skin creams to help with flushing, Botox to manage redness and laser to help with dilated facial vessels.

Dermapen® is the number one microneedling system and at Meyer Clinic we use it to successfully treat many patients who suffer with acne scarring. This is a minimally-invasive treatment that can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments and products in a long-term plan towards clearer, smoother, healthier-looking skin.

Research suggests that following a healthy diet can help prevent and treat acne. Specifically, foods rich in nutrients such as complex carbohydrates, zinc, vitamins A and E, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants are linked to lower levels of acne. Our Nutritional Therapist Dominique Ludwig is a specialist in treating skin conditions including eczema, acne, hyperpigmentation, psoriasis and rosacea. In consultation, she can take you through the most effective areas of nutrition to protect, heal, calm, balance and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

Acne scars can penetrate deep into the dermis so in order to repair them it as just as important to fill the tissue under the scar as it is to smooth out the surface of the skin. At Meyer Clinic, Dr Meyer has developed a skin bio-remodelling programme to treat acne and acne scarring. Profhilo®, which has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA) on the market, is injected under the indentation of atrophic scars to fill and remodel. Regular treatment is required to maintain results.

As part of Meyer Clinic’s treatment plan for acne and acne scarring, our skilled aesthetic therapists work with specially-formulated chemical skin peels. Fruit Acid, Salicylic Acid or Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) are used, in varying concentrations, to penetrate deep into the skin’s layers to unclog pores while removing the surface of blackheads and spots. The peels’ contents remain in the pores, working to keep them clean, which is perfect for improving acne-prone skin. Scars may also be less visible and the complexion will be smoother and more even overall.

An imbalance of hormones can play a huge part in triggering acne. Puberty, pregnancy, post giving birth, the menopause, andropause, and stress can all push hormones out of sync which can then impact the skin. At Meyer Clinic, under the direction of Dr Meyer, we offer a range of tests to help identify the cause of any hormonal skin complaints and conditions. Once we have that information, our medical team can create a tailored plan that works from the inside out to clear and brighten skin.

Let our expert skin therapists create a bespoke skincare plan for you. We use CLENZIderm M.D.™ Systems, the only prescription-strength acne therapies that contain a solubilised form of 5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) designed to penetrate deep into the follicle and clear acne fast. Use this at home as part of your journey towards improved skin health.
