What is Acne, Why Does it Occur?

Acne can be a very embarrassing and difficult to treat medical problem that affects patients of all ages, not just teenagers. Acne is the commonly used term for plugged pores, pimples, and deep lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on a person’s face, neck, back, shoulders, chest, and even the arms. Most teenagers get acne to some extent; however, this condition is certainly not restricted to any age group. Patients in their 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s come to our practice to be treated for this condition. Acne can be very upsetting, embarrassing, and even disfiguring. The early treatment of acne is crucial in order to prevent permanent acne scarring.
