Acne is not just a teenage problem. Many people suffer in silence into their 30s and 40s; in fact, 20% of women and men continue to have acne beyond their teens.

Book a no-obligation skin consultation with our doctor or one of our aesthetic therapists to learn more about YOUR skin and the treatment options we have available to help you achieve clearer skin.

We understand that acne often has a significant psychological impact on the sufferer. We only offer treatments which have strong evidence of their effectiveness. Alternative medical treatments e.g. long term oral antibiotics, will be available via your GP and Dr Patel can discuss these options with you as well. Not all acne is the same; it is important that the treatment your skin receives is appropriate for your skin type and also sub-type of acne. Your skin consultation will ensure you receive a tailored program individual to your needs.

Many of our clients who have enjoyed highly satisfying skin clearance, have reported that it took them months or even years to seek alternative treatments such as skin peels, due to misconceptions they had. Not all peels are the same, just as not all  cosmeceuticals are or indeed IPL machines. We offer a wide range of treatments like iPRF, Fractora and many more to help. With over 35 years combined clinical experience, our team has confidence in the world-class products we offer. If you are suffering with skin problems such as acne, please do come and see us for a consultation, even if it just to get some sensible and balanced advice about how to better manage your skin. There is no obligation to book any treatments.




Our therapists offer a FREE skin care consultation where they can go into more depth about the fabulous range of products and treatments we offer.

Chemical Peels

Gone are the days when the only immediate result one could expect from a medical-grade skin peel was 2-4 weeks of suffering painful, red, blistering skin. Technology has moved on and the clinical team at Perfect Skin Solutions have over 15 years experience in this area alone. Peels are one of the most effective methods to achieve a smoother and brighter complexion and our carefully selected range is certainly superior to salon treatments such as dermabrasion.

Cosmeceuticals are medical-grade cosmetic products, scientifically formulated to get active ingredients to the target area within the skin. Although fake products can be found on the internet, UK distributors will only supply these products to clinics like ours, as it is important to match the correct product(s) with your skin type and need. We receive consistently positive feedback from clients who use recommended skincare products. Continued use also helps maintain the benefits of your treatment(s) eg fighting on-going sun damage or controlling rosacea once settled. Read some of the truths about skin creams, in our FAQ section below!

Mesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins directly into the skin where it is needed.

You will have a thorough skin consultation with our doctor or nurse and the appropriate peel treatment for your skin, will be advised at that time. Dr Patel can also discuss all the management options available for specific skin conditions such as rosacea and acne.

Acne FAQs


The most common type of acne is acne vulgaris. This can be triggered by several factors, including hormone imbalance, overproduction of sebum (the oily substance on the skin) and growth of bacteria (known as P. acnes).

Acne forms when pores become clogged with sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria. If the clog occurs below the skin surface, this creates a “whitehead.” If the clog reaches the surface, a “blackhead” forms (the black is not actually dirt; its bacteria which darkens when exposed to oxygen). Clogged pores can pop and spread oil, causing more pimples and lesions. For this reason, we would encourage you to use an appropriate skin cleanser specifically formulated for acne-prone skin. Our award-winning cosmeceutical range offers some excellent cost-effective options.


Mens’ glands are larger and produce more sebum (or oil), therefore making acne more prevalent among men than women. In fact, it is a testosterone-related hormone that is responsible for activating the glands that produce sebum in the first place.


While external factors do not play a direct role in causing acne, they can aggravate an acne condition. These factors include improper cleaning, using inferior products, food allergies, an improper or vitamin deficient diet, an imbalance in skin’s PH structure (since skin acidity is what controls acne bacteria), climate (heat and humidity both contribute to more acne bacteria production), hormonal fluctuations and stress.

This is a rather simplified view of acne and we would be happy to bore you with more in-depth science at your consultation, if you wish!
