Our service is based on a 4 step plan

  1. We seek to identify the trigger(s) that initiated your condition.
  2. We identify the secondary triggers present in your environment, lifestyle and/or diet that continue to exacerbate your condition.
  3. We develop a customized treatment plan to get your skin condition under control now and acknowledge that there are often individual requirements and differences across people suffering with the same skin condition.
  4. We treat your symptoms and address your triggers to help you work towards long term control of your skin complaint.

At your first visit - what to expect

We will take a detailed history, examine your skin and then clearly explain the treatment protocol and any individually prescribed topical and nutritional medications that are recommended for you. We assess every patient's skin needs on an individual basis to develop a customised programme rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach.

With respect to eczema, dermatitis and rosacea, there can be a wide range of variation between the topical and nutritional preparations prescribed from one individual to the next. In comparison, whilst psoriasis and acne represent two very different skin conditions, in both cases, there is more uniformity across individual sufferers with regard to response to topical preparations and internal supplementation requirements. You will generally be reviewed after two weeks to assess that you are responding to the treatment recommendations. In the majority of cases, you will be reviewed on a monthly basis for approximately three months until your skin condition is resolved or significantly reduced.

The Natural Skin & Psoriasis Clinic prescribes nutritional and botanical medicines and topical ointments and creams to treat skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis, Acne and Rosacea. This clinic treats everyone individually as what may work for one person may not be appropriate for your condition. It is this appreciation of individual differences that ensures you get high quality attention and care. Our protocols focus on treating the underlying causes that continue to drive your skin symptoms including dietary factors. We use customised, topical ointments and creams and the prescription of targeted nutritional and botanical medicines to assist in the restoration of your skin's health.

Importantly, we are not a dermatology clinic. If you have an undiagnosed skin condition of recent onset, please see your GP or dermatologist before booking an appointment at this clinic.
