- 85% of individuals between the ages of 12 and 25 estimated to be effected.
Most of us will experience some form of acne in our lives, with up to 85% of individuals between the ages of 12 and 25 estimated to be effected. Acne is usually the result of hormonal changes or imbalances within the body, and so can be brought on by puberty, pregnancy, or the menstrual cycle, or else the result of medical conditions that affect hormones, such as PCOS. No matter what the cause of acne, the effects can last long after the initial pimple is a distant memory. Acne scarring can occur, usually a result of picking or squeezing blemishes. At Define Clinic, we recommend treating acne scarring early on, rather than waiting, as it may become more noticeable over time. Acne scarring can also be prevented in ways that we can treat active acne at Define Clinic.
When it comes to scarring, laser skin resurfacing can aid the improvement of the texture and tone of the skin, diminishing the appearance of any acne scars by encouraging the production of collagen for a smoothing effect. Microneedling may also be recommended for increased skin repair.
