What Causes Adult Acne?

Posted in Adult Acne by . | Leave a Comment
Adult acne can show up anytime after your teenage years; some people experience adult acne during their twenties, while others experience adult acne much later in their lives.  Dr. Schweiger notes that, "Acne can occur at anytime.  We most commonly see acne in teenagers, because of increased sebum production due to changes in androgen levels that occur during the teenage years.  However, adults also experience hormonal changes, and other factors that can cause the development of acne." Women with adult acne often experience hormonal acne that shows up on their chin and along their jawline.  For women who are not trying to conceive, medications such as oral contraceptive pills and spironolactone help to block the androgenic hormonal influence that lead to these breakouts.  Both women and men who experience adult acne can benefit from in-office laser and light-based treatments that help to clear acne quickly.  Treatments such as Photodynamic Therapy and the Isolaz acne treatment address multiple factors that lead tot the development of acne in adults.  For adults with active social lives and numerous work commitments, it is important to explore the fastest and most effective acne treatment options. Other treatments for adult acne include prescription medications, such as oral antibiotics, topical antimicrobials, and topical retinoids (which are also anti-aging!)  Some patients with severe, recalcitrant adult acne benefit from a course of isotretinoin (commonly known as Accutane) therapy.  It is important for adults experiencing acne to visit the Clear Clinic for prompt treatment of their acne; delaying the treatment of adult acne can result in permanent scarring.
