A referral is required for management of acne with prescription medications.
Severe, stubborn or widespread acne generally requires prescription medications and a referral from your family doctor is required. This process can take several months, so in the meantime we recommend a consultation with one of our medical aestheticians who can get you started with appropriate non-prescription skincare programs and treatment options.
Mild to moderate acne can often be controlled without prescription medications. Thorough cleansing and the use of medical grade skincare products, regular exfoliating treatments like microdermabrasion or chemical peels, along with laser or light based treatments can all help keep to keep skin clear.
