Teenage Skin Clinic
There isn’t one type of teenage skin any more than there is one type of skin at any age, but most teens will experience congestion, excess oiliness, breakouts and or shine at some point during adolescence. Some of these problems can follow us into our twenties and beyond, but it is best to start managing issues as they arise. Skin problems can make an already challenging time positively difficult for teenagers, but a compact collection of simple, straightforward products and treatments will help enormously.
We use a variety of the latest treatments to help teenagers who are affected by acne to regain smoother, clearer skin. If you are under 16, you will need to be accompanied by an adult to attend a consultation and treatment sessions. However, if you’re between 16 and 18 you can attend alone. Some treatments may not be offered depending on your age but this will be discussed at your consultation.
Long Term Results
Long term results will be achieved through not only a good skincare program but also diet and lifestyle changes. We work with a nutritionist and in our experience the best results are achieved when dietary advice is followed along with a skincare program to treat internally as well as externally.
Treatments are available to clients up to 18 years old.
* If needed we may recommend stronger treatments to prevent acne scars such as topical or oral antibiotics, prescription-strength topical retinoid, or both. In this case we will refer you to a dermatologist

Let's get serious about your skin.
In order to create the perfect skincare plan to address your specific needs, a thorough skin consultation is essential. Your first visit will always start with a consultation taking 30–40 minutes.
