ACNE/POST-ACNE HYPERPIGMENTATION AND SCARRING
Acne vulgaris (acne) is an inflammatory disease, that may predominantly affect the skin of the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders, as there are large numbers of sebaceous glands in these areas. As a rule, acne patients develop the condition between the ages of 12 and 25. Among the factors most frequently triggering acne there should be mentioned hormonal changes, stress, gastrointestinal pathology, excessive sweating, genetic predisposition. Effective acne treatment requires appropriate facial skin care and topical medications. In some cases, your dermatologist may prescribe oral medications.
Severe forms of acne can cause scarring, and that is why a timely and medically relevant therapy is essential.
