At Sun & Skin Medical Centre, our skin doctors offer a variety of different acne treatment options. Our experienced doctors will assess your skin and determine the cause of your acne, before offering a suitable treatment plan for your condition.
Acne – otherwise referred to as pimples – is a common skin condition that can affect people of all ages, but is more common amongst teenagers and young adults. It is more common in people with oily skin, and can occur on the face, back neck, or chest areas.
It is usually the result of increased hormonal activity (androgens), which results in excessive production of oils (sebum) on the skin. This, in turn, clogs the pores and allows for bacteria to grow. These bacteria cause inflammation and pus to develop, which appears as redness, lumps and cysts on the skin.
Acne treatment is important, because if left untreated it can lead to scarring, even if you do not pick your pimples. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may also result from having acne. Therefore acne and acne scarring may have a profound impact on a person’s self-esteem.

At Sun & Skin Medical Centre, our experienced skin doctors will conduct a through assessment of your skin before advising you on which acne treatment or treatments will be most beneficial.
Acne treatment generally involves three key areas: reducing oil on the skin, clearing out the pores of the skin, and reducing and controlling any inflammation.
Sun & Skin Medical Centre takes a tailored approach to acne treatment for each individual. We offer a range of dermaceutical-level products and treatments; our doctors can make their recommendation as to which are the most suitable products for your skin type.
Our skin doctors are also highly experienced with medical acne treatment, so we can offer medicated scripts to address the root causes of your acne. These work best when used in conjunction with our skin care product range.
At Sun & Skin Medical Centre, we also offer a range of aesthetic treatments that are performed by our team of professional skin therapists. Your skin doctor may recommend some of these as beneficial, complementing the medical treatment and at-home skin care regime that your doctor prescribes. These treatments include medical-grade peels, facials, LED therapy, microneedling and laser.
Each acne treatment plan is tailored for the individual patient’s needs and personal preferences. There is no ‘one’ best treatment that suits everybody. During your consultation, your skin doctor will take the time to conduct a thorough assessment of your skin and medical history. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have regarding the different acne treatment options that are recommended for you.
Working together with your skin doctor, you will receive an acne treatment plan that suits your condition and your lifestyle.
