Acne and Rosacea Association UK (ARA UK) Accredited Treatment Centre

We are delighted to be an Acne and Rosacea Association UK (ARA UK) Accredited Treatment Centre. This allows us to confidently guarantee and provide sufferers with the correct and accurate information, help and support in achieving the best results in their treatment.

The ARA UK is a charity created by Professor Tony Chu, to educate aesthetic practitioners and dermatologists about acne and rosacea in terms of the development, complications and how to effectively treat the many different cases. Acne and rosacea are skin conditions which millions of people in the UK face. 1 in 10 people have rosacea and 85% of people will have acne at some point in their lives –the statistics are staggering.

Professor Tony Chu teaches cutting-edge techniques for treating acne and rosacea. By utilising these techniques, we are more able to accurately assess and treat each patient.Acne and rosacea can have a profound impact on the quality of life of sufferers but are sometimes poorly treated and can be trivialised by health professionals. This charity aims to improve the management of these diseases by training Doctors, nurses and pharmacists on the best ways of treating them and solutions to various pitfalls that can be encountered. We aim to provide sufferers with information, help and support in achieving the best results in their treatment.

The ARA UK provides a training program for doctors, clinics, nurses and pharmacists in the modern management of acne and rosacea and treatment of long term sequelae including scarring,  telangiectasia and rhinophyma.

What it means to be accredited?

The Acne and Rosacea Association UK (ARA UK) accreditation consists of watching three webinars, twoon acne and acne scarring and one on rosacea. Then there are two exams to complete, one on acne and oneon rosacea.

 

Once complete theseare then marked by Professor Chu and the results are sent back. Any questions that are answered incorrectly are highlighted and resources are given to make sure the knowledge is improved to the highest standard.

 

Throughout the webinars, Professor Chushares his experience from over the years, diagnosing some of the more difficult and rare cases of acne and rosacea, what to avoid and how to treat each case with

precision.

 

With there being many different possible acne cases and also scarring which is especially hard to treat, it’s so important that you accurately diagnose the patient and provide the correct treatment for the solution –there is no such thing as ‘one product suits all’.
