Teenage Acne Treatment

Boost Your Teen’s Self-Esteem and Self-Image

Acne.  It’s a word even the most confident teenagers hate to mutter. It’s distracting. It’s embarrassing. It hurts. And it can scar for life—both emotionally and physically.

Luckily, though, modern medicine has provided many more solutions for the treatment of confidence-crushing acne.

Because everyone’s skin is different, it is important to have one of our Sona dermatologists diagnose your teen’s specific skin issues. For example, sensitive skin may not react well to the OTC benzoyl peroxide. Oily skin might need a stronger solution, whereas dry skin could require a combination solution that doesn’t make the face too flaky.

Treatment options can include:

  • Retinoids (derivatives of Vitamin A)
  • Combination product containing adapalene paired with benzoyl peroxide
  • Oral antibiotic
  • Isotretinoin (formerly known by the brand name Accutane)

If your pre-teen or teen is experiencing painful, severe, or just-plain-resistant acne, do him or her a favor and book an appointment with one of the skilled doctors at Sona Dermatology & MedSpa’s Lake Norman or Ballantyne location. Though it typically takes months to see a dermatologist, Sona offers the wonderful option for same-week, and, in some cases, next-day appointments (depending on availability). You can even book your child’s appointment online.
