As the new school year begins now is the time to get your teen’s acne under control. Acne can affect a teen’s self-confidence and personality and can cause scarring if left untreated. Acne can be hereditary and stress is known to make it worse. The effect of food and acne is controversial though there is some evidence that diets high in dairy, grains and sugars may play a role.
There are many treatment options available, both over the counter and prescription medications. Over the counter products with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acids are often helpful in treating mild acne. But, more severe or persistent cases often require prescription medications. The specialists at Pariser Dermatology treat acne by addressing it from all angles, whether it be from oil production, blocked pores or bacteria. There are many types of treatments available for the mildest to the most severe cases, from topical options such as washes or creams, to pills that treat acne systemically. Pariser Dermatology takes into consideration all possible factors and preferences to create an individualized acne regimen specific to you or your child.
Many acne treatments can take weeks or longer to start working, so don’t delay in making your appointment.
