Dermatologist Near Me – Acne Treatment

If you have acne, finding someone to take care of your skin can feel daunting, intimidating and sometimes complicated. You’re not alone. Which is why we believe it should be easy for you to seek treatment for your skin. Here are 5 of our patient stories who have come to us seeking help for their acne.

 

Hannah

As someone who never had acne in high school Hannah thought she was one of the lucky ones. Then boom – she hit 18 and breakouts everywhere but quite heavily on the jaw-line which also caused her face to swell with the inflammation; it was so painful, physically, but also mentally. She went from a confident girl (as confident as you can be at that age) to somebody she didn’t recognize; she would avoid leaving the house (even her bedroom) and hated anyone (even her parents) looking her in the eye. She felt so ashamed, unworthy. When she had the courage to seek help from a professional dermatologist she found reassurance and treatments that the GP and over the counter creams couldn’t. She wishes she knew this help was out there sooner and whilst her skin is complex, the whole journey has been surprisingly easy once she was in the right place. She has been acne free for over three years and back to the confident person she wants to be.

Jodie


A young professional came to us following years of debilitating acne on her face, chest, and back. Having tried oral antibiotics through her GP with no success Jodie was in need of additional support. Living locally, she put googled “dermatologist near me” and found us. It was apparent from the first examination that she needed medication to get the active breakouts under control, and to reduce the risk of scarring which she was at risk of. Patience was in order to see results, but it was well worth it. After two months of medication, her skin was clearing and for the first time she was happy to attend the clinic without make up on. Within 6 months her acne had completely gone – it was life-changing – she’d never thought she would be able to leave the house without wearing make-up. Not only that – but her skin was also fresh and glowing. She started with a Dermatology Consultation and never looked back.

Ellie


Ellie has come to see us for acne treatment on her cheeks. Whilst she didn’t have severe breakouts, she struggled with persistent, stubborn spots on both sides of her face. Living in west London, she wanted a local dermatologist to support her skin in the run up to her wedding. Ellie did not want medications such as antibiotics but was desperate to get rid of her breakouts so she opted for BBL acne treatment to kill off the bacteria, remove congestion and the dead skin cells. After being treated once a week for 4 weeks, there was a marked improvement in her skin. Her pores were tighter, her skin radiant and whilst there were still a couple of breakouts they are not red, raw and angry. Her journey continues but she is very satisfied.

 

Harry


Harry came in with severe cystic acne. As a 16 year old he had been waiting on the NHS but it was severely impacting his way of life. His skin was so inflamed that it was swollen across his cheeks and jawline. Like so many acne patients, when he came in, he wouldn’t look us in the eye and his shoulders were hunched over. Following successful treatment his skin calmed and cleared, and his whole body language changed. It was great to see his general demeanour improve.

 

Helen (one of our founders)

Helen knows the impact of acne all too well. From hitting puberty in her early teens, breakouts plagued her until she was in her thirties and had opened a clinic where she felt safe and that would help her skin needs. A healthy person, she was always infuriated by people who would say – you need to improve your diet/wash properly/exercise more/exercise less/exfoliate/don’t exfoliate. This advice is not helpful – and downright confusing. So she set out to change it – for her own sake and for the sake of others and No. 23 Skin was born. Fortunately after strong topical medications, skinpen microneedling, and BBL laser, her skin is clear and healthy – and she is so grateful to the dermatologists who got her confident for the first time since being a teenager.

Don’t suffer in silence. Your acne is a big deal, and we know how to get rid of it – so reach out for advice on 02039411815 or contact us here/book online for a dermatology consultation.

Good skin days, always

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
