The teenage years are difficult enough on your children; acne makes it even harder. But acne isn’t something your child has to simply “live with.” The board-certified pediatricians at High Desert Pediatrics can help! Fully qualified to treat most cases of teen acne, we’ll be able to examine and identify the severity and prescribe treatments to help.
Why Seek Teen Acne Care?
Chronic acne isn’t a teenage thing; it’s a medical problem that can cause permanent scarring and greatly affect your child’s self-esteem. Getting qualified acne care for your teen will provide numerous health benefits, including:
- Improved self-esteem
- Better hygiene habits
- Improved physical appearance
- Better nutritional habits
- Improved chances of avoiding scars
We can provide treatments such as oral antibiotics to control and reduce inflammation, topical treatments to use on the skin and recommend lifestyle changes such as nutrition, exercise and facial hygiene to help your teen control their acne.
