Teen acne


Many people are curious to know why acne is so closely associated with teenagers. The answer is simple, our hormones are changing radically during the adolescent years, and our skin is also extremely sensitive. Skin tends to produce much more oil than normal during these years so this can also be a key factor of teenage acne breakouts.



This section highlights the importance of parents being able to understand their teenage children’s acne problem, to help their children overcome this embarrassing stage of their life.

Parents are encouraged to talk openly with their teen about their acne, encourage good habits and even search for a qualified dermatologist, so your teen can start their acne laser treatment. This can be achieved by visiting a reputable skin laser clinic such as sk:n clinics.
