Acne is a common skin ailment that primarily affects teens and young adults, but anyone can develop acne. Acne most commonly appears on the face, but it may also affect the back, chest, neck, thighs, and buttocks.  At New Visage, our team of skin care experts will help you determine the best course of action to treat your acne and restore clear, healthy skin.

What causes Acne?

Acne results from a combination of skin oils and dead skin cells, which can accumulate on the skin’s surface, clogging pores and hair follicles in the skin, and creating a perfect medium for bacteria to develop. It is this accumulated bacteria that typically produces such symptoms as whiteheads, pimples, and other blemishes in the skin. Acne may be hereditary or it may be caused by environmental factors.

What are some common symptoms of Acne?

Acne affects everyone in different ways, and symptoms may vary among individuals. Some people get more frequent and severe breakouts than others. Blemishes may appear as papules, firm lesions, nodules, and/or pustules. Most people get breakouts only in specific areas, be it the face, upper arms, shoulders, neck, chest, back and/or buttocks.

Can Acne be prevented?

Acne is not usually preventable because in many cases, it is a hereditary condition. Sudden onset of acne may be linked to dietary or environmental factors, cosmetics, or medications. In these cases, once the irritant is identified, it may be possible to avoid it, and this may prevent future breakouts. There are several effective treatment options that may be used to control and manage acne effectively. Proper and regular cleansing of the skin is essential to prevent pores from clogging and accumulating bacteria. With a professional, individualized skin care regimen, you may actually reduce the frequency and severity of your acne symptoms. Our skin care specialist at New Visage will be happy to discuss treatment options and recommend the best regimen for you.
