Acne at any time in your life can affect your confidence which is why seeing an acne dermatologist in London makes such sense.
Many people will experience teenage acne during puberty, and for the lucky few that may be the end of it. To learn about teenage acne or our acne treatment for teens please click here.
However adult acne is surprisingly common and some people experience this for the first time when they are in their 30’s, 40’s or 50’s. This is known as adult-onset acne and can appear on the face, neck, chest and back.
More than 80% of adult acne occurs in women and can be associated with changes in hormone levels around the time of periods, pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control pills. Hormonal acne often occurs on the chin and lower face.
Another time when our body produces a hormone that activates oil glands and hair follicles causing acne, is when we are stressed. At our clinic we often see acne flare ups in adult patients who are experiencing some form of unusual or excessive stress in their lives.
Other triggers for adult acne could be as a result of changing a skincare routine, using inappropriate skincare products or taking certain medications, including vitamin supplements.
At Dr Haus Dermatology we offer a full range of options for treating all types of acne. Whether you have an annoying spot on your face or painful cystic acne, we have years of experience in treating people just like you. Typical treatments range from prescription strength topical creams and gels to oral medication. For some people our Hydrafacial for acne is also a beneficial treatment.
Our Dermatologists are also highly experienced at providing laser acne treatments to our patients. Our clinic has a wide range of laser platforms to safely treat all skin conditions, including acne. Energy based treatments tend to lead to quicker results than other treatment options and laser treatment for acne can be especially suitable for anyone with acne rosacea. Acne laser treatment can also be carried out as part of a multi-faceted treatment plan, depending on the needs of the individual patient.
While some treatments may provide you with quick results, the best acne treatment may occasionally involve a longer term approach or combining different treatment options. No two people are the same and the treatment that our Acne Dermatologists recommend will always be tailored to the condition of your own type of acne and personal circumstances.
We believe that it is important to treat acne, and not leave it or hope for the best. In addition to improving one’s self-esteem, treating active acne will also minimise the chances of acne scars and dark spots developing later on.
Our acne treatments are suitable for both men and women.

I’ve been with the Dr. Haus for nearly five months, doing my treatment for acne, and the result was wonderful. My acne problems that I’ve had for over thirteen years has been resolved. Great professionalism of Dr. Haus; excellent customer service; a well-equipped clinic and a pleasant environment. Definitely a great dermatology clinic in London.
As a model it is really important for me to look after my skin. Recently I came out in a small case of acne and have been trying desperately to find the right products to help clear this up. A friend recommended me and it was honestly the best thing I could have done. My skin feels so fresh and I am really happy with the results. I would highly recommend to anyone!
