I went to Baggot Street to have my acne treated. I had a dermatologist consultation and was given a prescription. She gave me a multi-pronged approach which I liked (regulation of hormones, sebaceous gland bacteria, etc.). She suggested I go on the oral contraceptive pill as part of this, but I didn’t want this at the time. I had done some research on the pill and voiced my opinions to the doctor. She suggested to take all the other approaches without the pill, but in the end, I decided to go with the pill after all. My skin has been almost perfect ever since.
I paid GP rates for the consultation (around 50 Euro) and the prescription was a separate bill. Any other consultant would have charged me at least 70/80 Euro. I contacted them for a repeat prescription. I sebaceous for this, but it was nothing out of the ordinary (20/30 I think). There were no side effects. My doctor was quite personable. I’d recommend them.
