During your acne treatment plan you will have monthly consultations with the dermatologist responsible for your on-going treatment. At each appointment your consultant will carry out short skin examinations to monitor your progress. On some visits you will be required to have blood tests so that your dermatologist can make sure that the medication is having no adverse effects. If you are female, you will also be required to undertake a pregnancy test at each of your appointments.
Your treatment plan will be built around you. Your next steps will be thoroughly explained, and written information and instructions on your treatment will be provided. Depending on your weight and the severity of your acne, the dosage and treatment length will vary.

Why put up with Acne?
Acne sufferers in the UK spend many years trying different creams and tablets. Some get a partial improvement, some get no response and some are told nothing further can be done. Most are not given the best options for a long term result. So people carry on living with acne which slowly builds embarrassment, withdrawal and begins to leave scars.
We believe that in the twenty first century, acne is no reason to hide. Diamond Acne Cure provides the only treatment with the highest cure rate combined with close professional supervision and excellent quality monitoring. No matter how long you have had acne, you’ll see results within four weeks and will feel in much more control of your skin. Many people are clear in four months and feel a whole new sense of confidence.
Why Happens At My First Appointment?
Your medical background and acne severity will be assessed by a Consultant. All suitable treatment plans are discussed. Many people like to discuss details of taking isotretinoin and what to expect over what time period. Should you wish to start the Diamond AcneCure programme, then your baseline blood tests and weight are obtained along with a clinical photograph. If you are female, a pregnancy test is performed at the same time.
Within 7 working days, you are usually able to start your treatment!
What Happens After My First Appointment?
You will receive a letter with a written record of your consultation. A copy of this letter will also be forwarded to your GP and other specialists involved in your care unless you request otherwise.
Throughout your programme, you will have access to your dermatologist by telephone or email to answer any concerns or queries regarding your treatment.
You will require a monthly follow up to monitor response, tolerance and dose adjustment as required. Your next appointments can either be booked on the day of your consultation, or can be made over the phone, by email, or online booking.
For females, a pregnancy test is required every month and for all patients, blood tests are required at week 4, 12 and 20. Your medication is supplied on a monthly basis either at the clinic or to your home address.
