Steve Harvey show presents very successful treatment for teen acne


On Friday, June 13, 2014, the Steve Harvey show, syndicated on NBC, presented an important medical opportunity.  It presented a young male (age 14) and female (older) teenager with very severe acne, and discussed all the social disadvantages they faced.  Then a female New York City dermatologist demonstrated the treatments, with laser peel surgery, and various antibiotics and peels,.that eliminated most of the visible pitting and scarring, with almost unbelievable cosmetic results.  I presume that the show paid for the procedures, which would have cost probably over $100000 each.  I don't know whether insurance companies would have covered cosmetic treatment for acne for teenagers under Obamacare, but it certainly sounds very important to the teens who benefit.  

Harvye had not yet provided a link to this part of the episode.
