There are many types of tablets used to treat acne, ranging from vitamins and supplements, through to antibiotics and special tablets prescribed by dermatologists. Depending on the severity of your acne, your previous success and failures, our team will come up with an effective solution to treat and cure your acne. In most cases we combine a tablet with a cream called a ‘retinoid’, in severe cases of acne a drug called Oratane or Roaccutane is used. We can also combine tablets with chemical peels, or even laser treatment.
The Acne Specialist Clinic uses various treatment combinations to tailor a acne-free program for you. An individualised approach gives the best outcomes.
