Does my son or daughter have to take medication to control their acne problem?
You see the physician for 5-minutes and are handed a prescription for antibiotics, Retin-A or, the often dreaded Acutane. Is this all they have to successfully deal with stubborn acne? Well, yes when addressing it medically. Medications largely try to control the side-effects of blackhead impactions in the skin—bacterial buildup that can cause inflammation and infection which is the root of most common acne conditions.
But, treating this problem as I do, through a steady, repeated removal of the blackheads which controls the bacteria buildup cycle, is time consuming—a successful approach that no physician can affordably offer patients.
We have so many great success stories among our teen and young adult clients, people who have felt the relief and social confidence that comes with clear skin. It's rare for any of them to need medication once our treatments have had time to produce the results they normally do. So, kick the acne drug habit and visit us!
