Acne

Acne Prevalence

Acne is a common problem in the United States, among both adolescents and adults, with roughly 70% of adult women and 30% of adult men having some form of acne. Approximately 85% of adolescents have some form of acne. It typically begins in puberty, with the onset of hormonal stimulation of the oil gland and hair follicle (pilosebaceous unit).

Causes

Acne is predominantly a problem of adolescence with initial comedones or blackhead formation. Dead skin cells that are too adherent to one another combine with oil to plug the follicles. Bacteria and inflammation ensue, leading to superficial pustules or deep cysts. Oily moisturizers, hair, or even haircare products can also induce acne, known as pomade acne. Mechanical friction can aggravate existing acne and cause severe flares.
