Acne

Acne, also called acne vulgaris or acne conglobata, is an inflammatory disorder of the pilosebacous, or sweat, glands. The disease is caused by an increase in both keratin and sebum (oil) production within the gland.


Acne Factors: Hormones, allergens, friction from garments, excessive cleaning, bacteria, skin irritation, and excessive picking are among the many factors that contribute to the onset and severity of acne. Acne can be superficial—blackheads and whiteheads. It may also be deep, characterized by pustules and cysts. Acne is worst when bacteria are involved with excessive picking; a habitual process which often leads to life long scarring. [1]


Acne affects 85% of individuals between the ages of 12 and 24. [2] It commonly begins during puberty as a result of the increased hormone production. Androgens (testosterone) are the primary hormones that affect acne by causing increased sebum production. [3]


In the majority of cases, acne usually resolves by the 3rd decade of life. It does, however, have a guided misconception in older adults. Persons in this age demographic generally view the condition as a “disease” of adolescents and young adults. Many older adults fail to realize that it can affect them well into their 40's and 50's.
