Acne Treatment

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that typically occurs when your hair follicles become blocked with dead skin cells and oil. Acne usually shows up on your:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Upper back and shoulders

Acne is more prevalent in teens, but it can happen at any age and on various body parts. You might only experience mild acne that goes away with time, or you might have persistent acne that causes scarring and emotional distress.

Sudden-onset acne in older adults can signal an underlying medical condition, such as a hormonal disorder or autoimmune disease.

What causes acne?

Various factors can play a role in the development of acne, such as:

  • Bacteria
  • Excess oil production
  • Certain medications
  • Hair follicles that get blocked by oil and dead skin cells
  • Chronic stress
  • Certain foods
  • Aging
  • Family history
  • Excess friction, irritation, or pressure on the skin
  • Hormonal imbalances

  • Cleanse and moisturize your skin regularly
  • Avoid harsh scrubbing of your skin
  • Use medical-grade professional skin care products
  • Work with a skin care specialist
