Although acne (acne) is generally associated with adolescence, we can say that it does not have a specific age, period or time. Adult acne (acne) and adolescent acne (acne) have similar causes and treatments in many ways. However, adult acne (acne) may have some special features that will distinguish it from others.
In a study published in 1979, it was seen that acne (acne) problem is common in adults over the age of 18, and 5% of women aged 40-49 years experience acne (acne) problems.
By 1997, this problem, which is seen in adults over the age of 25 and called adult acne, started to attract more attention, and in a publication published this year, it was shown that 76% of people suffering from adult acne were women, on average 35.5 years old. These people predominantly had persistent acne problems, and only 18.4% of these people had adult acne after the age of 25 due to changes in hyperandrogenism.
According to a study by the American Academy of Dermatology, 15% of adult women continue to deal with the problem of acne (acne). The interesting thing is that even individuals who did not have acne (acne) problems when they were young are likely to encounter this problem in adulthood.
Francesca Fusco, professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, sums up the difference between the two eras of acne (acne): “Adulthood acne (acne) usually occurs on the lower half of the face, while adolescent acne (acne) is typically found on the upper half of the face. . Adult acne (acne) is as deep as adolescent acne (acne) and appears as cysts or as hard nodules under the skin. The appearance of puberty acne (acne), on the other hand, stands high like a protrusion on the face.”
