You thought you were long over the teen days of having to worry about acne. Well think again. Adult acne usually begins with “blackheads”.
Blackheads may look like dirt, but they’re actually the result of oil and dead cells getting trapped in a pore where they block the duct and mix with bacteria. They then turn black when exposed to air. There are many causes of adult acne, some common ones being stress, bad cosmetics, hormones and birth control pills.
It should be noted that products that worked on acne during your teens usually do not work on adult acne. It is recommended that you see a dermatologist as he/she has an arsenal of treatments to help clear up your skin quickly, and most are covered by insurance. If you are an adult who wants acne treatment in Bradenton, make an appointment today with our Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Paul Stevenson at The Eye Associates.
