Not just for teens, I see patients with acne every day, many of whom didn’t start to get acne until their 20’s or 30’s.

Quick fix: Acne spot treatment
1/4 cup hot water
1 teaspoon Epsom salt
2 drops iodine
1/4teaspoon tea tree oil

Combine hot water with Epsom salt and iodine and tea tree oil. Let mixture cool until it's comfortable to the touch. Saturate a Q-Tip with the mixture and gently dab on blackheads. This will allow them to loosen so they can be exfoliated off with one of the above scrubs.

Long–term solutions:
Isolaz treatments, Tanda LED treatment, ematrix for scarring
