Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with oil from the skin. It is characterized by blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring. It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back.
Studies have shown that acne can cause anxiety, reduced self-esteem, and depression. One of the benefits of seeking acne treatment from a physician-run aesthetic practice is the ability to combine prescription therapies, such as topical or oral medication, along with aesthetic skin rejuvenation procedures such as microneedling and lasers.
