Give Your Teenager a Break from Acne

Jones, Tim MD, Blog- Acne. Edmond, OK

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.
