Acne

Acne

Acne is a skin condition which causes clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), inflamed pimples (pustules), and deeper lumps (nodules). Acne occurs on the face, back, chest, neck, shoulders and upper arms. It is most common in adolescents but oftentimes adults in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and even older adults can develop acne. Untreated acne can leave permanent scars. Topical and/or oral antibiotics are often prescribed to treat acne. Chemical peels, laser treatments, injections of corticosteroids, birth control pills, and microdermabrasion are other common treatments for acne.
