Our specialists treatments can help with skin problems such Acne and Rosacea. Please contact us to find out how we can help.

Rosacea (problematic skin) 

Rosacea is a skin condition we are seeing more and more of.  People often ask what is it?  Rosacea normally starts off with some or all of the following signs and symptoms:
  • burning and stinging sensations on the skin
  • permanent redness 
  • spots (papules and pustules) 
  • small blood vessels in the skin becoming more visible 

Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad, followed by periods when the condition is less severe and less problematic.  

What causes Rosacea?

Unfortunately there isn't a simple answer to this question, however, several triggers have been identified that may make rosacea worse.  These include:

  • exposure to sunlight 
  • stress 
  • strenuous exercise 
  • hot or cold weather 
  • hot drinks 
  • alcohol and caffeine 
  • certain foods, such as spicy foods 

We have several specialist treatments for Rosacea, depending on the severity, and in some cases if it is also accompanied by Acne.  Not only do we look at your skin condition, we also take into account diet, lifestyle etc. 

Here at Refine we've had great success in alleviating the redness and discomfort associated with this skin condition. It is advisiable to come along for a full lifestyle consultation.


Acne is a common skin condition of the face (or body). 

The spots can range from surface blackheads and whiteheads – which are often mild – to deep, inflamed, pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can be severe and long-lasting and lead to scarring 

The first step to treating Acne is understanding it.  There are differing forms of Acne  and each should be treated slightly differently, these can include:

  • teen acne
  • adult acne
  • acne rosacea
  • nodular acne
  • cystic acne
  • acne conglobata.

When it comes to acne not all blemishes are created equallly. Whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, therefore here at Refine we have a solution for all your acne problems.  

We can provide in-salon treatments together with a great range of homecare products which will compliment your skin regime.

Our clients love us, find out why!

I spent over £3k in France in an attempt to correct my acne problematic skin, unsuccessfully.  Following a move to the UK, a friend recommended I go to see Karen at Refine.   After a few months of treatments my skin is perfectly clear of Acne and the old scarring is minimal. I cant recommend the Refine salon highly enough.
