Coronavirus Update

We are still able to take patients under care for Roaccutane despite the coronavirus situation. We’ve established a process whereby consultations and check ups can be done via video link, and prescriptions can be posted to patients. The only requirement for clients to leave their home is to fill their prescription and for periodic blood tests at a sterile lab in central London which normally takes about 15 minutes. We are able to issue you a letter to confirm travel to/from the lab is essential as part of medical treatment.

We’ve had a large number of patients coming to us who were scheduled to come under care for Roaccutane with the NHS, which has now been cancelled due to the coronavirus situation. We can also take patients under care mid-treatment if your current doctor is no longer able to treat you.

Roaccutane by Private Prescription

Why let acne spoil your life when there are safe, fast and effective cures available?

Adult acne treatment with Roaccutane (aka Accutane or isotretinoin) is now available via private prescription in London from our Cosmetic Dermatology division in Harley Street.

There is now no need to wait 6 months or more for an NHS appointment or risk ordering from online pharmacies. You can enjoy the fast, effective results of Roaccutane (Accutane) while being safely monitoured by a professional Dermatologist for a fixed price that includes two blood tests, assessments and pregnancy tests as required.

What is Roaccutane (Accutane)?

Roaccutane (Accutane) is one of the most effective treatments available for adult acne vulgaris. Roaccutane (Accutane) is a prescription only medicine that helps to dry oil glands and get your active adult acne under control. Roaccutane (Accutane) is appropriate for moderate to severe acne and you must be seen regularly by your botonics Dermatologist during treatment. Roaccutane (Accutane) is a retinoid derived from Vitamin A and occurs in small quantities naturally in the body. Adult acne has been effectively treated with Roaccutane (Accutane) for over 30 years.

Benefits of Roaccutane (Accutane)

  • When under professional supervision of an appropriate prescriber, Roaccutane (Accutane) is perhaps the fastest, most effective and longest lasting treatments available today for adult onset acne
  • While the makers of Roaccutane (Accutane) do not claim it to be a cure, many clients are effectively cured in the long term, or enjoy several years of clear, spot free skin

Appointments to see the prescribing skin specialist and have blood tests are generally available within several days, allowing you to have Roaccutane (Accutane) treatment quickly and at your convenience. While under the care of your botonics Dermatologist for Roaccutane (Accutane), you can also receive free prescriptions for our professional range of skin care products. These products are only available via prescription through Dermatologists, and can help maintain and improve your skin even after you complete your course of Roaccutane (Accutane).

Why Not Just Buy Roaccutane (Accutane) from an Online Pharmacy?

While it is perhaps the most effective treatment available today for adult acne, Roaccutane (Accutane) can have some serious side affects such as damage to internal organs, depression and it can cause birth defects. This is why it is critically important to undertake a course of Roaccutane (Accutane) only under the professional supervision of an experienced Dermatologist. Horror stories abound about people trying to save a little money by purchasing Roaccutane (Accutane) without a prescription online.

Prescribing the correct dose for you depends on numerous factors such as the severity of your adult acne and your body weight, so self-prescribing Roaccutane (Accutane) causes a real threat to your health. Even if you get the Roaccutane (Accutane) dosage correct, you can never be sure what you’ll get when you order from an online pharmacy. While there are some good ones these days, many online pharmacies sell generic medications or placebos containing chalk/talcum powder or will send you out of date medications.

At botonics, you will receive the blood tests (two included), personal assessments and pregnancy tests necessary to ensure you enjoy the benefits of Roaccutane (Accutane) while safely avoiding any nasty side effects.

What’s Included

The first step toward Roaccutane (Accutane) treatment is a consultation with your botonics prescribing skin specialist. If assessed to be suitable for treatment, you will then be booked in for an initial blood test (out of hours appointments available) and instructed to go on birth control if applicable. You will be prescribed your first course of Roaccutane (Accutane) subject to your blood and pregnancy tests.

Most courses of Roaccutane (Accutane) last 5 – 7 months during which time the skin may become red and dry. Often, acne becomes a little worse before improvement occurs. Roaccutane (isotretinoin) can cause birth defects. Therefore, it is a requirement that during the 5 – 7 months you will be required to take Roaccutane (Accutane), you do not become pregnant. To learn more about adverse side effects, precautions during and after treatment, see our section on Roaccutane (Accutane) Client Information.

Treatment with Roaccutane (Accutane) includes the following

  • Your initial consultation and assessment with our experienced prescriber
  • Two blood tests
  • Regular prescriptions for Roaccutane (Accutane) that can be filled at any pharmacy
  • (For men) 4 assessments with your Dermatologist during the 5 – 7 month treatment phase
  • (For women) 7 assessments with your Dermatologist during the 5 – 7 month treatment phase, including monthly pregnancy tests

Price of Roaccutane (Accutane) Treatment

The cost of your Roaccutane (Accutane) treatment is a fixed price. Prices, which are all inclusive of your initial consultation, two blood tests, regular assessments, pregnancy tests (if applicable), taxes and charges, are as follows:

  • £1,200 for men
  • £1,600 for women

Cost of Roaccutane (Accutane)

The treatment price does NOT include the cost of Roaccutane (Accutane), which must be purchased from a pharmacy via prescription. The dosage prescribed to you will depend partially on your body weight. A rough guide as to the cost (as at September 2008) of Roaccutane (Accutane) based on body weight is approximately £36 per stone of body weight over the course of treatment. For example, a 10 stone client would therefore expect to pay £360 over the course of 5 – 7 months to the pharmacy for the Roaccutane medication.
