Trained dermatologists know what products to use and can cater their recommendations for your teen specifically. They can also point you in the right direction for medical grade facials to get regularly to clean the skin and clear out clogged pores.
Choose Excellent Skincare
When choosing products to treat acne it is always best to go to a trained esthetic professional to get medical grade formulas. Acne treatments that can be found at department stores don't work for everyone and are often laden with ingredients that make acne worse, such as fragrance.
When left untreated, acne can cause scarring that can only be maintained with costly esthetic procedures. It is better to invest in quality skincare that actively combats bacteria and oil production than to waste time and money on products that just don't work. Over time your investment will be worth it for your teens confidence and skin health.
Figuring out what works for your teen can take some time. Everyone's skin reacts differently to ingredients and treatments.
Curing acne is truly a patience game. Try not to get frustrated when one product or treatment isn't working. Keep trying and working with your dermatologist to see what works for your teen. Clear skin is on the horizon!
