Adult Acne

Acne vulgaris is one of the most common skin disorders in the UK affecting 80% of people at some point in their lives. Acne can affect adults and may also develop for the first time in adults after the age of 25 years.

Adult acne is more common in women and consists of two subtypes: persistent acne (acne that continues from teenage years and fails to clear) and late-onset acne (beginning after the age of 25 years). Acne in women can be particularly sensitive to hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle and many women will find their skin worsening during the pre-menstrual period. There will often be a family history of acne if it develops after adolescence.

There is no cure for acne, however there are many treatment options available that can make living with acne easier:
