Why Does Acne Affects Adults?

Adult acne is caused by excess oil production which clogs the pores and causes a reaction in the skin. It can also be caused by an increase of testosterone.Acne normally appears during puberty and decreases over time, but this is not always the case. Sometimes it can carry on into adulthood, which can be a cause of great distress. Many adults are also left with acne scars even when the condition has improved, and this can be just as difficult to deal with as the acne itself, leading many people to seek out effective adult acne treatment.

The Results You Can Expect From Adult Acne Treatment

In most cases of adult acne treatment, a six-week treatment programme is suitable, and in the majority of cases this is enough to lead to dramatic and long-lasting results.

You will generally begin to notice a real difference just a few weeks after starting adult acne treatment as the acne begins to fade.The skin becomes smoother and clearer, and the scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. All of this will lead to an improvement in self-confidence and give you a new lease of life.
