Prescription Acne Treatments and Non-Surgical Treatment
8th September 2015
Acne can be a very unpleasant skin condition for those affected.
It is commonly thought of as ‘teenage spots’, but full acne can be very much more serious. It can extend well beyond the teenage years and some people suffer throughout adult life. What’s more, acne sufferers can be left with deep pitted acne scars which spoil the appearance of the skin.
In his latest video, Dr John Quinn states that prevention is the key for skincare in your 20’s through good skin care practices including sunblock, but also by treating any more serious conditions such as acne with prescription medication. He explains:
Being a medical doctor, I prescribe appropriately for a number of medical conditions, such as acne vulgaris and also pigmentation problems.
Professional skin treatments are also available at Quinn Clinics, which can be helpful alongside or following prescription medication, or as an alternative treatment for milder cases:
