What is Acne?
Acne is an occurrence of inflamed or infected sebaceous glands under the skin due to blocked hair follicles. The infected glands can appear on the face, neck, back and body which cause blemishes such as black heads and spots to appear on the surface of the skin, resulting in red, sore, breakouts which can leave scarring.
DestinationSkin can offer acne sufferers a number of different treatments to suit their skin types, and to help address those concerns. Acne treatments can range from laser treatments to skin peels.
Who Does Acne Effect?
Acne is very common in teenagers and younger adults. About 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 will be affected by acne.
Acne is most common between the ages of 14 and 17 in girls, and between 16 and 19 in boys.
Most people have acne on and off for several years before their symptoms start to improve as they get older. Acne usually disappears when a person is in their twenties.
In some cases, acne can continue into adult life. About 5% of women and 1% of men have acne over the age of 25.
