Acne is one of the most common dermatologic conditions, affecting millions of individuals in the United States. It’s a common skin condition that affects most people, to a varying degree, during their teen years. However, acne is by no means restricted to teenagers - adults in their 20's and 30's and 40’s are also susceptible to acne. Many effective forms of therapy and medications have been developed to help in the process of eliminating and preventing acne. If a patient suffers from acne, they no longer have to settle with the appearance of their skin because quality topical treatment is available.
“Acne isn’t something one can outgrow with age,” says Dr. Rebecca Baxt, New Jersey/New York board certified dermatologist and assistant professor of clinical dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine. “Years of untreated acne can leave a lifelong imprint on a person's face and can have an effect on self-image. While acne may not be curable, it is usually controllable and preventable.”
What is Acne?
Normal skin contains oil glands under the skin, which produce an oily substance called sebum. The sebum moves from the bottom to the top of each hair follicle and then spills out onto the surface of the skin, taking with it sloughed-off skin cells. When a person develops acne, the structure in which the sebum flows gets plugged up. This blockage traps the sebum and sloughed off cells below the skin, preventing them from being released onto the skin's surface. If a patient's pore's opening is fully blocked, a whitehead will be produced and if the pore's opening is open, a blackhead is created. If a whitehead or blackhead becomes inflamed, they can turn into red pustules or papules.
