Acne – Adult
Adult acne can be a continuation of teenage acne that never ended. This is called “persistent acne.”
Acne – Youth
While anyone can get acne, even adults, it is most common in teenagers. In fact, acne is considered a normal part of adolescence.
Acne scars generally result from inflamed blemishes that are caused by engorged skin pores. Skin pores can swell up from excessive oil, bacteria and dead skin cells, causing a break in the follicle wall.
