Acne & Acne Scars
Pimples, blemishes, zits—acne goes by many names, but no matter what you call it, it’s a problem that nobody enjoys dealing with.
Just about everybody is affected by acne at some point in his or her lifetime. Every morning, about 50 million Americans wake up and look in the mirror to find these unwelcome red bumps speckled across their skin. While acne is most common with teenagers, many adults continue to struggle with ongoing breakouts or the scars that acne left behind.

What is causing your acne?
In most cases, acne is caused by the effects of puberty in young adults and adolescents. However, there are many factors that can be causing even adults to still struggle with the occasional breakout, such as genetics, hormones, menstruation, stress, specific foods, and certain medications. Even once the acne stops, the discolored scars and pockmarks often stay behind.
