The Arizona dermatologists and dermatology specialists at the Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale (SCCS) have announced an expanded teen skincare program, aimed at providing better information teenagers.

Pimples, pustules, whiteheads and cysts. They’re not pretty, but with 80 percent of teens suffering from some form of acne, from the occasional breakout to the most severe cases, it’s time to talk about teen skincare, according to the dermatologists and dermatology specialists at the Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale (SCCS).

Teen acne is a treatable condition that affects 80 percent of the teen and pre-teen population and the dermatology specialists at SCCS specialize in the education and treatment of teen and pre-teen acne.

“There is a lot of misinformation out there about what causes acne,” said Robert J. Casquejo, PA-C and owner of the Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale. “Some people think acne just comes from dirty skin and washing more often will cure it, and that’s simply not the case.”

Common causes of teen and pre-teen acne are the use of oil-based makeup, oil introduced to the pores by touching the face with the hands, using the wrong type of soap on the face, using the wrong type of over-the-counter acne treatment for the skin type or type of acne, stress and changes in hormone levels.

“The reasons for acne are many and varied,” Casquejo said, “but they are also treatable. Young people don’t have to live with uncontrolled acne. A great deal can be done to reduce and prevent acne breakouts.”
