Acne is a common skin problem that can leave extensive scars and skin changes. While acne is more common in young women, it can occur at any age, and the scars left behind can last a lifetime. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we offer effective acne and acne scars treatment at our medical center in the Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, area.
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that affects an estimated 50 million people every year in the U.S. The majority of people with acne problems are between the ages of 12 to 24 – 85% of people in this age group have at least minor acne. Different forms of acne, from small white and blackheads to larger cystic acne, can create large lumps and deeper pockets in the skin.
The face is a common area for acne, but it can also appear on the chest, back, neck and shoulders. Keeping the skin clean is important, but it is not always enough to control severe acne breakouts. Medical treatment for acne is available, including medications and skin procedures that can control bacteria and internal health conditions that cause acne breakouts.
