Anyone who’s been there will tell you there are few things more mentally anguishing (or painful) than going through your day with a big ol’ cystic monster on your face, or even a collage of the ugly bastards. Television treats us to a barrage of products that promise to clear our skin and make us look like Jessica Simpson or Puff Daddy, but for people with serious acne problems, common household products like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid just don’t do a whole lot, and often make it worse. The last resort for many is Accutane, a toxic drug that can compromise liver health and pretty much demands you don’t drink booze for the duration of a year’s treatment — not so fun. Enter Dr. Zeyi Chen’s groundbreaking treatment. After years as a dermatologist in China, followed by a residency at MUSC, he set up shop in West Ashley and developed a series of natural products like a Vitamin C oil that, combined with microdermabrasion and his facial peel cocktail, will have your once zit-ladened skin healthy and glowing in a matter of weeks, nontoxic style.
