Acne is an extremely common skin condition that affects up to 80% of adolescents, however, it can affect people of any age group. It is characterized by papules (pimples), pustules (pus-filled pimples), open and closed comedones (whiteheads and blackheads), nodules (large pimples) and cysts. The development of acne lesions is thought to result from overactive oil secretion from sebaceous glands, blocked pores, and overgrowth of bacteria. Even patients currently being treated for acne may have flares, which can result from hormonal fluctuations and menstruation, genetic predisposition, stress and workout supplements. In severe cases, scarring from old acne lesions may result. Consult with ZROC’s professional Acne Dermatologists.
