More than 60 million Americans suffer from some form of acne breakout. Acne affects more than 80% of all teenagers at some time in their lives, and clogged pores comprise more than 25% of all visits to the dermatologist. These whooping numbers reveal one major thing- acne is common! And it affects everyone. And not just that, these statistics continue to increase with every passing year. In fact, it has now hit epidemic proportions in adults, especially women. What used to just be a teenage problem is now a real challenge in adults’ lives.
For teenagers and adults, acne can cause severe depression and anxiety and they tend to be our most compliant clients.
What Acne is Not:
It is not due to dirty skin.
It is not due to eating chocolate or fried foods.
It is not just a teenage problem
Then Why Do I Have Acne?
It can be caused by certain drugs, hormonal changes, medications or exposure to certain chemicals but in the majority of cases, acne is an inherited tendency.
The Science Behind Acne:
Acne is an actual disease of the pores. Dead skin cells shed way quicker in the acne prone-pore as compared to the normal pore. As a consequence, it forms a plug along with sebum and hair and this is where the problem begins. If the body doesn’t see the plug as an invader, then it remains as a noninflamed lesion aka a blackhead. If it does, then it transforms into pimples, pustules and cysts (acne).
