Acne and skin treatments
Active acne is a common problem that typically arises in adolescence but can also appear in the mid-twenties or even later. Regardless of the age acne breaks out, it can have a very damaging effect on self-esteem and self-confidence.
We each have lots of small glands, known as sebaceous glands, below the surface of the skin. These glands produce a natural oil called sebum. Typically this oil helps to keep the skin supple. When there is an over production of sebum, the hair follicles and pores can become blocked, creating an ideal environment for bacteria. This bacteria causes inflammation and redness associated with acne.
Common in both males and females alike, acne can be difficult to treat with topical creams and gels.

Some Of Our Most Popular Treatments For Active Acne
Obagi Clenziderm® is a prescription-strength programme, designed specifically to treat teenage and adult acne. Obagi Clenziderm® is the only acne treatment system with a liquid form of benzoyl peroxide which is clinically proven to provide visibly clearer skin in as little as 2 weeks.
Whereas other skin systems only treat the surface of the skin, the powerful treatment of Obagi Clenziderm® works deep within the skin to unclog pores and eliminate the bacteria that irritates the skin and leads to acne outbreaks.
Peels are designed to remove dead skin cells,* resulting in a renewed and a healthy-looking complexion. Combined with ingredients to reduce inflammation, this can be an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of rosacea.*
This is all achieved without surgery, and the subsequent side effects associated with surgery. It is painless although for a few days you may see skin peeling and a mild swelling on the area that has been treated.
