New Clinic The Skin Investment Clinic opens in Little Somborne during Acne Awareness Month

A NEW clinic has opened in a Hampshire village offering solutions to treat acne and acne scarring as well as a range of anti-aging and anti-pigmentation treatments.

The Skin Investment Clinic opened its second base in Little Somborne, just outside Stockbridge, on June 6.

The business grew by popular demand from its clinic in Farnham, which led to the business becoming a franchise.

Holly Mason, the company’s founder, said she now hopes to open more franchises across the UK.

Holly said the business was already doing well and opened during Acne Awareness Month.

She said: ‘The clinic is in a very low-key setting, which we have found running our clinic in Farnham, makes patients feel more relaxed and at ease when discussing their skin concerns. They also feel comfortable arriving and leaving makeup-free and don’t have the stress of parking or bumping into someone on the main street.

In June, National Acne Awareness Month aims to reduce the stigma surrounding the common skin condition and educate people about its causes and treatments.

Skin Investment Clinic dermatologist Dr Benedetta Brazinni said, “Acne Awareness Month is important because acne can often be misinterpreted as a small number of pimples. It has a massive impact on mental health and patient confidence. It is best to treat acne early on to avoid scarring and people should be aware that it is rare for acne to go away on its own.

“It’s important for patients to come to a clinic, so they get the right diagnosis, medical advice and support and avoid any adverse effects from home products. At The Skin Investment Clinic, we are able to create bespoke treatment plans for patients so they know from the start what to expect.

Dr. Brazinni is on hand to help with general dermatology issues and anti-aging injectables. The dermatologist recommends a healthy diet, physical activity, a substantial amount of sleep, and resisting the temptation to choose free methods to prevent acne.

Acne bootcamper Phillipa Campbell suffered from “painful” bouts of acute acne which “severely affected” her daily life.

The Winchester Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
