Hey Maureen, I Have Been Struggling With My Skin Since I Was In

Question

Hey Maureen, I have been struggling with my skin since I was in my teens. I have black spots on my face due to pimples that just don’t want to go away. Believe me I have tried everything. Your help will be appreciated.

Answer

I’m so sorry to hear that you are having these issues. My honest opinion is that if you have tried everything, I feel that I would like to have a look at your skin. There are so many treatment and product options for patients with these kinds of issues, and it can be very frustrating to chop and change and try this and that. I would suggest that you let us take a look at you and we can discuss all the things you have tried already and make a plan based on the history of your skin care and based on what we can see in front of us right now. It may just be that you need a series of the RIGHT chemical peels and some laser and the right moisturizer. It could be that you’ll need to also consider some oral supplements to get your skin back into balance. The options are endless, but I really feel we should do what is best and right for you from day one so as not to waste any more time or your money. I hope that I will get to meet you soon!
