Understanding Acne

What is Acne?

Acne is a common, inflammatory skin condition that happens when your hair follicles become clogged with oil or dead skin cells. This condition is typically characterized by local breakouts in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples. The most common areas for acne breakouts are on the face, back, chest, and shoulders.

Who Gets Acne?

People of all ages, skin types, and races can get acne. Although acne is more common in teens and young adults, it can happen to newborns, children, and continue into adulthood, as well.
