FAQ About Acne: When Does Adult Acne Stop?

FAQ About Acne: When Does Adult Acne Stop?

Posted in Adult Acne by . | Leave a Comment
At what age will my adult acne stop? The unfortunate answer is that, when left untreated, acne can persist into your 50’s.   Hormonal changes can stimulate increased production of sebum in the hair follicle.  This produces an ideal environment for the p. acnes bacteria to thrive.  The key for all adults experiencing acne is to start an anti-acne regimen at the first sign of a breakout.  Using topical medications, at-home cleansing brushes and in-office laser treatments when necessary can help to keep adult acne under control. Can I use my teenage child’s acne medications? We recommend checking with your dermatologist prior to using your children’s acne medications.  While the armamentarium of acne medications is similar for teenage and adult acne, it is important to treat the type of acne that you have and keep in mind the specific needs of your skin.  We do have many parent/child duos that come to the Clear Clinic together for their treatments and share their at-home blue light device, but typically we recommend using the acne medications recommended specificly for your skin.
