Acne is the most common skin problem seen by doctors and skincare professionals. It affects men and women of all ages and occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and skin oils. Acne is typically seen on the face, but can also affect the back, shoulders, and arms. It is more common in those individuals who have oily skin, however genetics and hormones may also play a role in its occurrence.
Although typically associated with the teenage years, it is not uncommon for adults to suffer from acne – even if they did not have it as a teenager. Hormonal acne is particularly common in adult women.
Acne, and its effect on physical appearance, can have devastating psychological, social and emotional effects on the sufferer. Even mild pimples or blemishes can bring on feelings of low self-esteem, embarrassment, and depression. Treating acne early on is vital in order to keep the condition from worsening and causing permanent scarring.
