Acne is often thought of as a teenage problem, but this skin condition can affect all ages in both men and women. The problem can occur when hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells which lead to the appearance of pustules, papules and nodules. Following a breakout, residual scarring and hyperpigmentation can be a cosmetic concern for many patients. Approximately 80% of all people between the ages of 11 - 30 suffer from this condition, with many suffering well into their 40s.
Several studies report that acne has major effects on patients’ quality of life, validating acne to be the #1 skin disorder seen in dermatology practice. Active acne, which is characterized by ongoing breakouts, can be effectively minimized through platforms that target underlying causes of the acne without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. Acne treatment requires treating on multiple levels to achieve effective results:
- Targeting the bacteria
- Extracting the blockage
- Reducing inflammation
- Reducing oil flow
