Most teenagers have some degree of acne, but for adults, teens, and even children who suffer from severe acne, the condition can be devastating, resulting in scarring, anxiety, and social withdrawal. Consulting an experienced dermatologist is the first step toward pinpointing the source of the problem and eliminating unsightly pimples and lesions.

Acne is a condition that causes follicles under the skin to clog, creating blemishes. The condition primarily affects the face, neck, back, chest, and arms. Cases range from mild and virtually unnoticed to severe and very unpleasant to look at.

What causes acne? No one in the scientific community is really sure. Hormones most likely contribute to the condition, but there is little evidence that diet or lack of cleanliness are linked to acne. Hormone imbalance, use of greasy products and stress can worsen the condition, but they don't cause it.

Regardless of the reasons behind acne, there are proven solutions that can lessen blackheads, whiteheads, redness, and skin irritation. If blemishes and pimples are preventing you from interacting with others or living up to your full potential, it's time to speak with a dermatologist who can help you find a treatment option that best matches the severity of your acne.
