If it seems virtually every teenager has some degree of acne trouble, you’re right.
Overall, 85% of US teens are afflicted by this annoying/embarrassing condition.
Teenage acne is more than just a social or psychological problem for teens, it
can also lead to scarring that lasts a lifetime. That’s why Dr. Jones advises his
patients with teenage children to take a proactive approach with acne treatment.
More so than many other cosmetic procedures, acne is very individualized. Each
person has a different reaction to various treatment options, so Dr. Jones’s
experience can really play a role in finding the correct solution.
What are Dr. Jones’s acne treatments?
