More than 85% of teens have zits, which first appear around puberty, but can appear as early as age 8, due to sudden hormonal fluctuations and increased hormone production.  These hormonal changes trigger an overproduction of sebum (oil) in the oil glands causing those clogged pores that eventually lead to acne.

Acne can have profound impact on your self-esteem.  Growing up is hard enough without the added stress of acne, but you don’t have to suffer, there are treatments for teens that can get rid of your acne.  Often, teenagers are impatient with over-the-counter acne treatments that just don’t work—and we understand your frustration.  At Clear, our providers develop a plan that works for you and your busy lifestyle by offering a vast array of options from topical medications, washes, peels, and oral medications such as antibiotics.  Hey, we were teenagers once too-we feel your pain!
