Acne is very common and affects 90% of teenagers. Adult acne is also common, particularly in women.
Perth Dermatology Clinic offers individualised acne treatment, including isotretinoin therapy for moderate-severe acne.
General skin care, a healthy diet, regular exercise and sensible amounts of natural sunlight are helpful adjuncts to the specific treatment of acne.
Specific treatment of acne includes topical creams and gels, oral antibiotics, the oral contraceptive pill and oral isotretinoin.
These treatments are often very successful, although a subset of acne can be more difficult to treat.
Prompt acne treatment helps to prevent acne scarring and maintain a healthy self-esteem.
Perth Dermatology Clinic offers priority appointments for those with severe acne.
