Acne can affect all ages starting from the newborn, to teenagers and even adults. Acne can be the source of great emotional stress and may lead to emotional and physical scarring if not treated promptly and appropriately. The good news is nobody has to have acne because so many treatment options are available. Over the counter preparations can be helpful, but if clearance is not achieved within several weeks, prescription medication may be required.
For those patients who already have acne scarring, treatment may include certain skin care products, chemical peels, soft tissue fillers, and dermabrasion.
