About Acacia Dermacare
Acacia Dermacare was founded by Dr Lance Setterfield in May, 2005.
Unlike many of the Cosmetic Clinics and Spas exploding onto the scene that tend to cater toward fixing surface problems, Acacia Dermacare is dedicated to enhancing skin health for the long term, using science-based, individualized programs for men, women, and children. These programs are less invasive, using cutting edge technology to assist with clinical diagnosis and objective monitoring of progress.
Restoring the physiology of skin cells not only prevents sun and environmental damage, but also reverses or delays the effects of aging. Dr Setterfield is presently achieving this using Environ products in conjunction with other medically recognized treatments. Thus, the individual will appear their best once skin health is restored.
Apart from skin health, Dr Setterfield offers help in other areas using Botox Therapeutic for those suffering from migraines, neck pain, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and TMJ.
