Acne is a common problem that starts with puberty; and for some can last years before completely clearing up. This is a conditions called adult acne, which affects a lot of young people in their 20s and 30s. As much as you would love to hear that acne will go away after puberty; for some acne only starts later in life due to hormonal imbalances, stress, lifestyle or due to underlaying medical conditions.
Will acne go away after puberty?
In most cases acne will finish by the time you are done with your teens. Regardless of sex, acne affects male and female patients alike and more likely to happen on people with oily skin. But for some, acne can last much longer in to their adult life, mainly due to hormonal imbalances. But of course there are other factors that can cause breakouts and prolong acne in to adult life. Whatever the cause; and whatever age you are, any signs of acne can have a big effect on how you feel about yourself.
Treatments for adult acne
Acne treatments are a complex process and should be left at the hands of your specially trained skin experts. Remember your skin is unique as you are. From our experience and years of treating patients with great results, a personalised approach is the most successful strategy when it comes to fighting the condition.
