How Do Dermatologists Treat Acne?

3rd February 2021

If you’re dealing with repeated outbreaks and spotty skin, a dermatologist could provide the answers – and treatment – you’re seeking. Our team, based at our Manchester skin clinic, can help you on the journey to clearer, glowing skin and can help combat active spots as well as past scarring.

Do I have acne?

Acne should be properly diagnosed. If this hasn’t been done by a doctor, our dermatologists can do this for you. It’s important to rule out any other skin concerns that may present with similar symptoms, such as rosacea, which can appear as bumpy, red and inflamed skin (treatment for this is very different to acne treatment). There’s a great guide on the NHS which covers the sorts of spots you may have and other symptoms which can indicate acne.

Can acne be treated?

Yes, acne can be managed and treated by your dermatologist or doctor. However, it’s worth pointing out that while many doctors have a broad knowledge of medical concerns, dermatologists specialise in looking after skin.

How can I treat my acne?

Our treatment process very much depends on the symptoms you’re presenting with and your specific skin concern.

  • For those with oily skin, our dermatologists recommend chemical peels and skincare
  • In cases of rosacea, lasers can be effective in treating inflammation
  • If you have scarring, microneedling and chemical peels can be effective in skin resurfacing
  • Those with milia can undergo extractions and again, look to skin peels
  • Treatment for those specifically with acne includes skincare, peels and oral medication

What’s the right treatment for me?

This can be determined through a consultation with our expert dermatologists, here at our Manchester skin clinic. We’ll help diagnose your skin condition, recommend appropriate treatments and could even advise on lifestyle factors that may be affecting your skin.

How much does acne treatment cost?

This really depends on the treatment you choose, however we do have a detailed price list with more information.

How do I book treatment?

A consultation at our Manchester skin clinic will be your first step on the journey to brighter, clearer and more radiant skin. It also helps us to ensure you’re happy and comfortable with the process, and your skin goals can be met realistically.
