Acne Skin Treatment in Uptown Mirdif Dubai
Treatment for acne depends on how severe it is. It can take several months of treatment before acne symptoms improve.If you just have a few blackheads, whiteheads and spots, you should be able to treat them successfully with over-the-counter gels or creams (topical treatments) that contain benzoyl peroxide.
See your GP if your acne is more widespread – for example, you have a large number of papules and pustules, or over-the-counter medication hasn’t worked – as you probably need prescription medication.
Prescription medications that can be used to treat acne include:
• topical retinoids
• topical antibiotics
• azelaic acid
• antibiotic tablets
• in women, the combined oral contraceptive pill
• isotretinoin tablets
Isotretinoin has a number of beneficial effects:
• it helps normalise sebum and reduce how much is produced
• it helps prevent follicles becoming clogged
• it decreases the amount of bacteria on the skin
• it reduces redness and swelling in and around spots
However, the drug can also cause a wide range of side effects. It is therefore only recommended for severe cases of acne that have not responded to other treatments.
Because of the risk of side effects, isotretinoin can only be prescribed by a specially trained GP or a dermatologist.
Several treatments for acne do not involve medication. These include:
• comedone extractor – a small pen-shaped instrument that can be used to clean out blackheads and whiteheads
• chemical peels – where a chemical solution is applied to the face, causing the skin to peel off and new skin to replace it
• photodynamic therapy – where light is applied to the skin in an attempt to improve symptoms of acne.
About Drs. Nicolas & Asp
Drs. Nicolas & Asp was founded by Dr. Nicolas who first established his small private practice in 1991 at the now famous DNATA building in Deira, Dubai. It was at this location that the practice quickly established itself as a leading Dental Practice with a reputation for providing the very best treatments in a safe and sterile environment where patients could feel comfortable and relaxed, were unrivaled at the time.
In 1994 Dr. Nicolas found himself unable to keep up with the demand for his services and was encouraged by patients and friends to look for larger premises. Somewhere that could take him nearer to realizing his goal of, eventually becoming the Largest Private Dental Health Care Provider in the U.A.E.
At this time two other prominent Swedish Dentists were looking to return to the Middle East having practiced General Dentistry previously for three years in Dubai. Husband and wife team Dr. Sven & Joan Asp, who were already highly regarded by their professional colleagues and members of their own community and shared the same standards and visions, returned to join Dr. Nicolas at his new premises back then, a small but ideally situated villa at the heart of Jumeirah.
