Acne is a common, yet troubling, skin condition that affects around 80% of the population at some point. Although teens typically deal with acne the most, adult-onset acne is also a frequent problem. Get the help you need to enjoy clear, beautiful skin at Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta. Dr. Spitzler and Dr. Murad can provide advanced solutions to keep your skin healthy and clear of acne.
Your skin and hair are lubricated and protected with an oily substance called sebum. This substance can combine with excess dead skin and plug pores and hair follicles, causing acne. Untreated, acne can become inflamed and infected. Severe acne can be painful, unattractive, and even leave visible scars behind.
Acne frequently appears on the face, neck, shoulders and back, but it can develop anywhere on the body. Many over-the-counter treatments for acne are available and can help with small outbreaks. However, many home treatments or recommendations can actually be harmful, such as squeezing or shaving over acne. These actions leave visible scars that mar your appearance.
