Adult acne is far more common than you might think. At SkinCenter, our skilled team of doctors and clinicians see patients in their twenties, thirties, forties, and even fifties for adult onset acne. Perimenopause and menopause can also trigger adult acne – so if you find yourself suddenly troubled by an issue you thought was long behind you, know that you’re not alone, and that there is help.
What Causes Acne in Adults?
The causes of acne in adults are much the same as the causes of acne in teens. Stress and hormone changes are two contributing causes. So too are family history, sensitivity to ingredients in products, or an underlying medical condition. If you’re searching for skin care products that won’t trigger your acne, talk to the SkinCenter team. We carry an entire line of carefully selected products you can use to clean, nourish and protect your complexion.
Acne that is caused by fluctuating hormones or other medical concerns may be best addressed via prescription medication. Treating the root cause alleviates the acne. Your SkinCenter physician will work closely with you to determine the best route to controlling your adult acne. Individualized, medically supervised skin care is often the fastest way to see a lasting improvement in the complexion.
Acne lasers are a safe, effective way to reduce the size of the oil glands in your face. At the same time, the acne laser stimulates the body’s natural collagen producing mechanisms. This combination results in smoother, softer skin with fewer pimples and black heads— plus, the added benefit of a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles!
Adult acne can form anywhere on the body. Pimples can appear on your face, neck, back, torso, arms and legs. Laser treatment is the gold standard for body acne. In the hands of a skilled clinician, the blue light effectively eliminates the bacteria that causes acne outbreaks. Acne lasers are customizable, which means you get the appropriate intensity treatment for your unique skin type, pigmentation, and texture.
