Different types of acne respond to different treatments. Depending on the type of breakout you may be able to get results from a variety of products, such as a retinol, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide or a combination of these products. We carry SkinMedica products at our office and see wonderful results in our patients. An acne facial or consultation with an experienced esthetician would put you on the right track.

I’m very fair skin, blue eyes, but I’m debating if it is actually rosacea that I’m suffering from or just a natural rosy Irish complexion. I’m so confused and don’t want to be wasting more money on rosacea products that won’t even be effective for myself because the statistics say sufferers are usually 35-40 when they do develop the condition but I’m only 16. I just want to get to the root of this very frustrating problem.
