As our bodies enter the menopause, oestrogen declines but the level of androgens (male sex hormones) stay the same. Androgens can overstimulate oil glands and clog hair follicles, so this imbalance can lead to acne.
Lymecycline is an antibiotic treatment used to help treat acne.
The usual dose given for acne treatment is one capsule daily, preferably taken in the morning.
Lymecycline may be suitable for you if your acne is moderate to severe and has been unresponsive to topical treatments alone.
Lymecycline 408mg - 28 Capsules

“I can’t recommend this service enough. I wasn’t getting the answers I needed from my GP, but days into my LIVVE treatment plan I’ve got my life back. My mood is stabilised, I’ve got my energy back and no more brain fog. Thank you for giving me ME back.”Mrs A
