Acne can continue into adulthood

Acne affects most people at some time in their life; usually during puberty; that’s why acne is prevalent in teenagers. However, acne is not just a teenage affliction and can affect adults well into their 40′s.

Acne can be very distressing and lead to serious anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and even depression.

Adult acne can result in acne scarring

All to often adult long-term severe acne sufferers also suffer from the added affliction of acne scarring after years of traumatic acne erruptions.

With laser acne treatment, even skin with acne scarring can be improved. Laser treatment reduces the appearance of acne scars by aiding the production of collagen, which in turn leads to the growth of new, smoother, better-looking skin.

What causes teenage acne

During puberty increased oil production can clog the skin pores, causing a reaction.

Just below the skin surface are many small sebaceous oil glands that produce sebum, an oily substance that protects and water-proofs the skin.

Acne characteristics

Acne is a chronic disorder of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands, characterised by blackheads, pimple outbreaks, cysts, infected abscesses, and in sever cases, scarring. Acne begins with excess oil production, blocked pores and acne causing bacteria. Inflammation then follows.
