Adolescence is an exciting time, but at NicholsMD of Greenwich, we know that it can also be a troublesome time for many teens who suffer from skin conditions, especially acne. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disease in the U.S., and it affects the majority of teenagers to some degree or another. We understand that acne can greatly affect a teen’s self-esteem and therefore, we advocate early intervention and treatment. Effective treatment can prevent complications such as permanent dark marks and deep scarring. Seeking support and care from a dermatologist can help to avoid years of embarrassment and social avoidance. Through our comprehensive acne regimens and procedure options, teenagers can achieve healthy, clear skin and most importantly, maintain it. For teens who don’t suffer from acne, many of the facials and treatments we offer can help to brighten and tone their skin for important events, such as proms, formals and graduations!
NicholsMD of Greenwich also treats a number of other skin conditions that teens worry about. Are you embarrassed to wear a swimsuit because of bumps on your shoulders and back? This could be an acne-like condition called folliculitis. Do you avoid raising your hand in class because of sweat under your arms staining your shirt? This could be a condition of excessive sweating called hyperhidrosis. Tired of shaving every day? Laser hair removal could be the answer to never having to shave again.
If you’re a teenager or a parent of a teenager, schedule a teen consultation today!

Chemical peels and microdermabrasion exfoliate the skin. The new, regenerated skin appears smoother, fresher, and more even-toned. These are great solutions to lighten marks, and to minimize the appearance of moderate to severe skin imperfections, such as acne scarring.
In a 20-minute light therapy session, you can speed up healing of existing blemishes, minimize future breakouts, and recapture your radiant glow. This treatment can be done year-round (i.e. even in the summer), and is an added boost to other procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion.
Micro-Needling is the technique of injecting small amounts of customized mixtures of vitamins, nutrients, hyaluronic acids, and peptides into the mesoderm – or middle layer of skin. These very small-customized doses are administered using tiny needles in specific areas, depending on the condition being treated – such as acne scars, melasma, or skin rejuvenation. This treatment can be done year-round!
Suffer from excessive sweating? Botox, and other neurotoxins, can be injected into the underarms, palms, and other areas of the body to treat hyperhidrosis, a term used to describe excessive sweating. It’s quick, safe, and effective!
