Acne is a type of skin condition that happens when the pores on your skin get clogged up by oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. This causes whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples, and affects people of all ages, but most commonly teenagers.

Acne can be caused by a number of things such as hormonal changes, medications, diet, stress, and your environment. But, with proper treatment, especially when done as early as possible, it can be managed and eventually eliminated.


Rosacea is also a skin condition which causes redness, flushing, and acne-like breakouts. This redness appears noticeably on your cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin.  These symptoms can worsen over time and become somewhat permanent, so getting treatment right away is a must.

There is no known cause for rosacea nor a specific test to diagnose it, which can lead to a likely misdiagnosis. At Western Skin Institute, our doctors are able to identify rosacea based on your symptoms and through skin examination, and provide you with the proper treatment.

Skin conditions like acne and rosacea can be treated through photodynamic therapy. Western Skin Institute also offer specialist general surgical services and Smooth PDO threat treatment.
