Confidence and a Clear Complexion

Confidence and a Clear Complexion

Summertime. We plan for it all year, and then in the blink of an eye, a new school year is upon us. For some adolescents and young adults, the beginning of a new school year can come with the added stress of unwanted, stubborn acne.

The frustration of trying countless over the counter remedies can be overwhelming. 

Oftentimes, patients have been battling their acne for years and the expense of trying and failing various over the counter options far outweighs a visit to the dermatologist. 

Unfortunately, there are no overnight cures for acne. With so many prescription treatments available, it helps to have the expertise of a provider that can choose which one is right for you.

Which Treatments Will Work for You?
