Coping With the Emotional Impact of Acne

Coping With Acne continued...

Therapy worked for Liston, who began seeing Grossbart when she was 28. Soon, she was able to make acne less of a focus in her life. Within six months, she was seeing real improvements in her skin. "By a year it was pretty much gone," she says. "It's great. I haven't had any acne or skin problems in eight or nine years."

Now that her skin is clear, Liston can focus her attention on more important things, like her career, her family, and her renewed sense of self-confidence.
