Overcoming Acne & Acne Scarring
Acne is a skin condition in which hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells causing blackheads and spots that often become inflamed and painful. It is most common among teenagers but can affect people of all ages.
Acne scarring occurs where spots/lesions have become inflamed and the tissue is destroyed. This results in the body making scar tissue which is not smooth like normal facial skin and it can appear lumpy and slightly discoloured.
In her Thorpe Bay clinic, Nicola Fielding offers a range of treatments to help combat acne and acne scarring –

Nutritional Planning/Food Intolerance Testing
Dairy products are best avoided in acne sufferers. It is thought that hormones in milk and other dairy products may have an effect on the body and skin. Food Intolerance Testing can help to pinpoint any other foods that the digestive process may struggle with and therefore be overburdening the system
