Teens attending 'parties' to learn about treatments for acne

Youngsters in Long Island, New York, are coming together at a leading cosmetic surgery clinic for 'teen parties' to learn about skincare and how to deal with acne. Cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr Stephen T. Greenberg launched the sessions at his practice in Woodbury, Long Island, and the idea has proved popular with teenagers who gather for acne treatments, facials and microdermabrasion treatments.According to Dr Greenberg, the parties have attracted boys and girls who are keen to improve their complexions. He says the results can also help boost the self-confidence of teens who are often concerned about their appearance and how they are perceived by others. The mother of one teenager who has attended sessions at the clinic described them as "inexpensive, effective and worth every penny of it". "The renewed confidence in my son is priceless," she added. Along with advice, some young people who attend the clinic have opted to have laser treatments, which can be used to reduce the effects of acne breakouts.
