What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that causes blemishes on your skin, often on your face. It’s a common concern, affecting nearly everyone at some point. Acne is caused by clogged pores and frequently affects teenagers and young adults, but older people may have or develop acne as well. Treatments available at Integrated Dermatology of NJ offer the beautiful, healthy, pimple-free skin you deserve.

Which symptoms can acne cause?

Acne may appear as:

  • Pimples
  • Red bumps
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Pus-filled lumps
  • Painful bumps
  • Cysts 
  • Nodules

Acne might develop on your face, back, shoulders, chest, or other areas. When not treated, it can affect the appearance of your skin and drain your confidence. It may also leave scars.

What increases the risk of acne?

Anyone may develop acne at some point, but it’s most common among teenagers and young adults because of hormone changes. It’s the most common skin condition, affecting about 80% of people ages 11-30 to some extent.

Women may develop acne more often than men due to hormone fluctuations. Acne triggers include wearing tight-fitting clothing, being in high-humidity weather, using oily personal care products, undergoing stress, and taking certain medications. A family history of acne and pregnancy also increase your risk of developing acne.

Eating certain foods might increase acne breakouts. For example, some people have more acne when they eat carbohydrate-rich foods, such as bagels, bread, or chips. 

How does my specialist diagnose acne?

Diagnosing acne includes a review of your medical history, a discussion about your symptoms and medications, and a skin evaluation. Your provider personalizes a treatment based on your age, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

  • Oral medications
