Understand Acne So You Can Get the Treatments You Need

What exactly is acne? Blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples are all types of acne, a skin problem that troubles people of all ages, not just teens. Acne occurs when a hair follicle gets plugged with sebum (an oil produced in sebaceous glands) and dead cells.

If you've suffered from acne, you know that it can lead to serious self-image issues and a lot of heartbreak, especially among teens and young adults. Your dermatologist will discuss treatment options with you to determine which treatment will successfully minimize your flare-ups and minimize acne-related scarring. The key to successful acne treatment is patience - while you may not see changes overnight, your treatment will almost certainly be successful.
