Patients treated by Dr. Ismailjee over the years include teenagers with acne problems and adults with skin issues or problem skin. That includes adults who are predisposed to boils, as well as patients of all ages up who have picked up difficult to treat skin bacteria which often require multiple and prolonged courses of antibiotics, often over several months or even years. The problem these people face is that they can’t take antibiotics and surgical disinfectants every week. Their only other option, over-the-counter acne washes, mostly rely on the same set of ingredients, such as Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide, which are often harsh and not always effective.
Dr. Ismailjee has always preferred exploring natural remedies wherever possible, and that led him to start working with concentrated Tea Tree Oil (TTO). While patients universally disliked the pungent aroma of TTO, what they discovered was that it worked!
After using TTO for his patients over an extended period of time, Dr. Ismailjee found that they consistently reported fewer break-out occurrences, less severity of break-outs and even that break-outs were often prevented. They also reported less oily skin, and healthier, fresher feeling skin. After more than seven years of treating patients with some form of concentrated Tea Tree Oil, Dr. Ismailjee decided that it was time for someone to step up and create a product line that was easy to get and easy to use, and which harnessed the benefits of TTO and mitigated the negatives — Hello, Tea MD™!
