The website for The Acne and Rosacea Association (ARA) UK has launched, allowing for both practitioners and patients to learn more about the skin conditions.
The ARA UK is a charity created by consultant dermatologist Professor Tony Chu, medical director of West London Dermatology Centre, to educate aesthetic practitioners about acne and rosacea. It provides information on the development of the conditions, complications and how to effectively treat the many different cases.
By enrolling in the ARA UK, practitioners will access relevant up-to-date information surrounding acne and rosacea, as well as webinars. Enrolled clinics will also be listed as an Accredited Treatment Centre on the ARA UK website and linked to pharmacies who will refer them to patients.
Dermatological company SkinMed are working with the charity, assisting in driving patients to relevant practitioners and clinics.
Peter Roberts, head trainer and managing director at SkinMed said, “We are so proud to be the main sponsor of a charity where we have invested so much funding and expertise, from their website, leaflets, accreditation seminars and workbooks, to printing, communications and the promotion of the charity’s aims.”
