Once you have got through puberty and into your early twenties you might think you can stop worrying about acne being an issue that you will have to deal with. Unfortunately for some, adult acne is becoming a prevalent issue that they have to deal with, as more women and men visit their doctors and dermatologists to remedy their issues. Research shows that acne affects 9.4% of the global population, and whilst it is most common in teenagers, the rising number of adults affected by acne is something to take note of. At The Laser Treatment Clinic, we often receive enquiries from people looking to treat their adult acne issues, including scarring.
Adult Acne Treatment
Did you know that the latest statistics show that at least 50% of women suffer from acne at some point in their adult life? In a study undertaken last year, it was found that there has been a 200 per cent rise in the number of adults seeking specialist acne treatment.
Acne is caused by the over-production of oil from sebaceous glands, and this can be driven and caused by a number of reasons, often hormone levels. This leads to blocked and inflames pores causing bacteria to thrive causing pimples to occur. Adult acne can cause the sufferer to have a number of problems, including self-confidence and in some cases depression and anxiety.
When it comes to treating adult acne, it’s important to understand what will work for your skin, as choosing the wrong products has the potential to aggravate skin conditions including acne, making them worse and causing scarring to occur.
