My parents are worried about any cosmetic procedure to help with my acne. I’m 17, do you have any recommendations for my family?
At 17 years of age I would concentrate more on prevention and cure of your acne then treatment of any scarring that you have had from your acne breakouts. A proper skin regimen and our Isolaz laser with Profusion has been extremely effective for our patients with stories similar to yours. These are FDA approved treatments with the Isolaz laser and I think that once your parents see the effect the Isolaz laser has on your acne, and subsequently, the positive impact control of your acne has on your self esteem, they will be extremely supportive.
