Acne & Problematic Skin

Acne can be incredibly frustrating, especially when we discover pimples and congested skin can affect us at any age.

Problematic skin can come in many forms - rashes, whiteheads, the odd painful pimple or cystic under-the-skin acne, and these can all really impact our self-confidence. This is exactly why we’re here to help!

What causes acne?

Acne is generally caused by in imbalance in oil production in the skin. This can be brought on from a number of factors, including hormones, environmental factors or weather, irritating skin products, or the food you’re eating.

How can I prevent acne, and how can I treat it?

Unfortunately we can’t always control some factors such as our environment and hormones, so other than adjusting your diet, the best way to prevent and treat acne is to help balance the oil production in your skin. This can be done through using a combination of in-clinic skin treatments and the right topical skincare, containing actives such as retinoids and salicylic acid.

First time at Nicola Quinn and I enjoyed every moment! The friendly lady on reception set a lovely tone and the atmosphere was very calming. Grace recommended a facial to suit my needs and I really appreciated her flexibility in this. She was professional, friendly and knowledgable throughout. Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend!
