As anyone suffering will know, this can be very distressing seeing as acne can cause stress and anxiety, leading some to withdraw socially and experience feelings of depression.
In fact, according to a 2016 survey by the British Skin Foundation, 63 per cent of acne sufferers experience lower self-confidence and over a third of people self-harm or have considered it because of their acne. If you can’t withstand the waiting list, you can seek out a private dermatologist for specialist treatment – but it’s likely to come at a price.
If you’re one of the millions of people who experiences acne or other skin conditions, you’ll know how hard it is to get professional help. You can visit your GP, who may only have a few minutes to see you, or else may add you to a lengthly waiting list for help on the NHS.
Enter Dermatica, the trail blazing new online skincare service that is democratising access to dermatologists, making it easy to access targeted treatment no matter where you live, nor whether or not you have hundreds of pounds to spend on your skincare regime.
All you have to do is complete a questionnaire upon sign up, providing information on your skin, medical history and any treatments that you have previously tried. Then, the team of consultant dermatologists, pharmacists and GPs provide personalised treatment plans and skincare treatments, including prescription-only medications, follow up appointments and on-going advice to check up on progress as well as unlimited confidential advice.
After the online consultation is complete, the professional-grade products are then sent out in the post, arriving on your doorstep the next morning, offering acne suffers lightening-speed support that hasn’t previously been possible.
It seems the skincare revolution has arrived…
