Acne 

We understand that acne often has a significant psychological impact on the sufferer. We only offer treatments which have strong evidence of their effectiveness. Alternative medical treatments e.g. long term oral antibiotics, will be available via your GP and Dr Rhatigan can also discuss these options with you. Not all acne is the same; it is important that the treatment your skin receives is appropriate for you and your acne subtype. Your skin consultation will ensure you receive a tailored program individual to your needs.

Tebiskin Skin Care
We highly recommend Tebiskin OSK skin care which is supported by the ARAUK with their TripleLock approach to acne control. Tebiskin is medically licensed and the only range of products to meet the criteria of the ideal acne treatment, addressing all four of the clinical symptoms as well as underlying triggers. Dr Rhatigan can help identify which products would be appropriate. 

Skin Peels
SkinMed’s Enerpeel Salicylic Acid 30% peel is often used as the cornerstone of acne treatment alongside the Tebiskin products. The unique patented carrier solution transports the salicylic acid AND Tebiskin’s OSK active ingredients into the hair follicles delivering high strength anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory spot busting effects. No other peel can do this. We also have Enerpeel Chest and Back for those with acne in these areas.
Clinical studies based at 5 university hospitals on patients with resistant acne (unresolved acne after 12 months of prescribed medication) were prescribed 4 Enerpeel SA peels, 2 weeks apart in conjunction with anti-acne topical regimen. This achieved a massive 84% resolution rate.

Derma FNS Fractional Needling System
Derma FNS is the latest innovative skin needling system used in acne scarring. Instead of the old-fashioned roller method, this vertical automated method minimises pain and bleeding whilst being able to target even deep acne scars and reduce pore size.
