Treating Acne to Improve Confidence
If you have a teen with acne and over-the-counter medicines aren’t working, come see us. It’s tough enough to navigate the world as a teenager without the added burden of being self-conscious about blemishes.
Acne isn’t caused by what your child eats or by not cleaning skin properly. It is caused by bacteria that can grow because of the rate at which the skin cells on your child’s skin fall, or slough, off. People with a slow rate of skin sloughing experience acne.
Even if your teenager doesn’t complain about the cysts, blackheads and whiteheads that come with acne, it doesn’t mean they don’t diminish confidence. Acne scars go more than skin deep. Pimples do not have to be an adolescent rite of passage.
Make an appoint to see Dr. Ketcham and learn about acne treatment options for mild to severe acne. They include antibiotics, topical and/or oral, and specific light treatments. Dr. Ketcham can recommend products, including cleansers that will help instead of aggravating the problem.
