Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. Pimples form when hair follicles within the skin become clogged. Though teenagers do make up the largest percentage of the acne-afflicted population, acne strikes adults, too. In fact, more than half of all adult women and about a quarter of adult men are acne-sufferers. Acne doesn't just occur on the face, it also can affect the back, chest, neck and shoulders.
No one knows exactly what causes acne. Some believe acne to be a result of a diet rich in chocolate or greasy foods, but there is little evidence that foods affect the development of acne. Another misconception is that acne is caused by dirty skin, which is also false. Stress is also blamed for the development of acne. Though stress does not cause acne, it can make it worse.
Most dermatologists agree that hormone changes, such as those during the teenage years and pregnancy, are major contributors to the development of acne. Hormone fluctuations can raise androgen hormone levels which cause oil glands to create more oil in the skin. The build up of dead skin cells and the secretion of oil on the skin clog pores and create acne. Though the exact cause of acne is unclear, Indigo MedSpa offers solutions to treat and heal this skin disease.
