Acne Treatment Reviews
A common misconception about acne is that it only afflicts teens and people in the adolescent
age group. However the truth is that a large number of adults do suffer from it. This leads to
physical, psychological and social effects on persons suffering from acne.
This effects can be long-lasting and cause problems. With adults, acne leaves behind permanent
and ugly scars since as the skin ages and loses collagen, it takes longer for the scars to heal.
It may be hard to diagnose psychological effects due to common misconceptions that accompany
them. For instance it would be logical to say that the psychological effects of adult acne is easier
to deal with since the person has matured and is not prone to teenage tantrums. However in
actual reality the psychological effect in adults may be even worse, since this is a condition
perceived to be specific to teens.
Nowadays it is easier for adults to seek treatment from dermatologists as acne continues being
recognized as a problem not confined only to teens but also to adults. Sales of over-the counter
treatments have increased as well as awareness about adult acne.
Research into adult acne has been extensively applied to determine it's causes and effects on
older patients. this directly leads to increased awareness about the condition and makes it easier
for more people to seek treatment.
Nowadays information about the condition is readily available from the web, medical journals and
publication. This means that the public can better understand it and how to combat it. More care
is also given to the psychological effects it has on adults. Remember that they, just like teens are
affected by people's attitudes towards them and how they are perceived.
In summary, the key to treating this affliction is to understand what causes it.Knowledge about
it,and how to treat it's physical manifestation means that the social and psychological problems
can be treated as well.
