Dermatology Specialist Skincare Advice
Our team at the Blemish Clinic, including our lead aesthetician and specialist skin care advisor, alongside our dermatology specialist consultant nurse, Jan Birch can advise on professional, medical-grade and prescription skincare, anti-ageing regimes, and treating problem skin with topical skincare solutions. Medical grade skin care products have a higher percentage of active ingredients than over the counter products.
Medical grade skincare for medical skin problems
We treat medical skin problems and long-term, chronic skin conditions with prescription skincare, clinic-only skincare regimes, and conventional medicine.
At Blemish Clinic, we use a wide range of cosmeceutical skincare brands – clinic-only, professional products that bridge the gap between cosmetic creams and pharmaceuticals – that are designed to ensure they contain the right ingredients in the right concentrations to target specific skin concerns such as, acne, irregular pigmentation, rosacea, dry skin, oily skin, dark circles, dull skin with rough patches or uneven complexion, and many more.
Following a skin consultation, we can tailor a skincare regime, using products from differing brands that best suit your skincare needs. We are proud stockists of the following: SkinMed, Emepelle, Obagi Medical, Skinceuticals and Heliocare.

"Having suffered from sensitive skin all my life, I would not trust anyone else. Jan is very knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with skin problems. The advice given has helped me immensely. The Blemish team are very professional."
Skin consultations are available with our specialist skin care advisor and lead aesthetician. If you have a more complex skin condition you can also be referred for a consultation with our dermatology specialist consultant nurse, Jan Birch or our consultant Dermatologist, Dr Andrew Winter.
During your consultation, a full medical history will be taken to discuss any underlying medical conditions and your skin concerns, as well as any medications you are taking that may impact on the treatments and skincare advice that we can offer you.
A full skin assessment with be performed using special lighting and technology that allows us to analyse pigmented lesions, sun damage, or any areas of concern. If further concerns are raised about any moles or suspicious lesions on your skin, you will be referred onwards for a dermoscopy assessment with either Jan or Dr Winter.
The products that we use and recommend to our patients have high concentrations of extremely active ingredients, a far cry from what you might find in a high street chemist or supermarket, therefore, you will require a thorough consultation to assess your individual needs before we can create and prescribe a bespoke skincare treatment plan.
Cosmeceutical skincare brands are usually only available through clinics and are professional products that bridge the gap between cosmetic skin creams and pharmaceuticals. They are designed to ensure that they contain the exact ingredients needed to target and treat a specific skin condition, but also have those ingredients in the right concentrations or strength to actively work and make a real difference to your skin health. Many of the off-the-shelf products you have tried may contain similar ingredients but in such low concentrations that their effect is minimal compared to higher concentration products that require medical supervision during use. It is for this reason that you must have a consultation first, and we follow up with you to ensure that the skincare programme is working, adjusting the ingredients and products used if required.
Using a variety of topical skincare products, alone or in conjunction with other treatments available at the Blemish Clinic, we can help to treat skin conditions and concerns including, acne, irregular pigmentation, rosacea, dry skin, oily skin, dark circles, dull skin with rough patches or uneven complexion, and many more.
We will tailor a skincare regime, using products from differing brands that best suit your needs.
We are proud stockists of the following brands:

Emepelle is a revolutionary product that has been formulated to treat menopausal skin ageing, specifically targeting, rejuvenating, and restoring skin so it is hydrated, brighter, and firmer.
Menopause, and the decline in levels of oestrogen have a significant effect on skin health and skin ageing, with a 1% loss of collagen per year prior to menopause, in the perimenopausal period, a 30% collagen loss during the first 5 years of the menopause, and subsequently a 2% continued loss of collagen every year post menopause. Emepelle uses their MEP Technology® to address collagen loss in the skin to rejuvenate and restore, whilst rebalancing skin health with the use of retinol, peptides, antioxidants, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. MEP does not add oestrogen to the body; however, it rejuvenates menopausal skin by encouraging the skin to behave as if the oestrogen were still there, encouraging key skin cells to activate new oestrogen receptors.
Obagi Medical products have the accolade of being the number one physician dispensed skincare range in the world. With over 30 years of clinically proven results, and products that must be medically prescribed, they offer real topically delivered solutions for younger, healthier-looking skin, and those patients suffering from acne and pigmentation problems.
