All about Acne

Acne is one of the most common problems that prompt people to seek the help of a dermatologist. Teenagers are not the only ones affected by this disfiguring skin condition. Up to 30% of diagnosed cases occur in people over the age of 25. Some are forced to deal with breakouts in their forties, fifties and even beyond. It's not a pretty picture. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help manage this common skin condition.

What Causes Acne?

Overproduction of sebum is a primary cause of acne. Sebum is an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands on the skin. Sebum production is affected by hormone fluctuations, offering a partial explanation as to why the condition is more prevalent among teenagers.
