Acne treatments are in high demand as clinical studies indicate between 40% and 55% of the adult population in the 20 to 40 age group has been diagnosed with low grade, persistent acne and oily skin, with the primary catalyst as chronic stress.
Balancing personal and professional responsibilities makes this generation of adults the most time-compressed generation in history. The constant, continued and heightened level of stress that throws our ardenal glands into overdrive, which in turn can boost sebum production, setting the stage for acne development and resulting in the need for acne treatments.
Acne treatments are targeting bacteria: Once there’s a boost in sebum production, the cascade of events leading to the breakouts begins: oil spills onto skin’s surface and acts as a binder, creating a mixture of oil and cells that blocks oxygen from entering the pores. The lack of oxygen creates the ultimate breeding ground for bacteria, which leads to the swelling, redness, and inflamation around the follicle – characteristic signs of acne.
Cases of Adult acne are often more persistent and inflammatory than teenage cases.
