Acne Awareness


For acne sufferers, it doesn't take a holiday or national month of awareness to be reminded of the uncomfortable effects of living with acne. 


It’s important to remember that acne can lead to low self-esteem and even depression – especially among students returning to school. That’s why September is Acne Awareness Month here at Third and Sherman Medical Plaza.

It can be challenging to know when it’s time to see a specialist about acne. You may feel it’s just acne, so why bother. Or you may believe that your acne’s not severe enough for you to see a doctor who specializes in skin diseases.

The truth is many people with acne can benefit from seeing a dermatologist. You don’t have to have severe acne.


Treating Acne

The quickest way to tackle stubborn breakouts is to book an appointment with Dr. Reese. There, Dr. Reese will discuss potential treatment options and, if necessary, start a prescription regimen. Call (509) 624-1184 to schedule your appointment.

Another option is to participate in a clinical research study. Premier Clinical Research is enrolling subjects for a variety of acne research studies. Qualified participants will receive study-related care for their acne and compensation for time and travel.


Acne Research Studies

PCR is currently enrolling participants for a variety of studies to evaluate potential new treatments for acne. If you are at least 9 years old and struggle with mild to severe acne, you may qualify for one of these studies.
