Acne

Acne is one of the most common skin diseases. Whether it is mild, moderate or severe it can have damaging physical and psychological effects. Dr Austin sees many patients of all ages who suffer from acne.

At the Austin Clinic we invite you in for a consultation with Dr Austin where she will assess the possible causes of your acne and treatment options that may benefit your skin. Treatment options vary depending on the cause. Acne can be caused by hormones, triggered by diet, poor skin hygiene, reactions to products or makeup.

There are several typical treatments for acne. Medical grade skin care products may be suggested instead of, or in addition to your current skin care regime. A change in diet may be recommended as well as a series of treatments, such as Microdermabrasion. The doctor may also suggest topical or oral prescription products for more severe acne.

Unfortunately there is no ‘quick fix’ for acne but by following the advice of your doctor, acne can be treated very effectively.
