What Causes Acne?

There are a number of reasons why you might develop acne.

Excess oil production

Excess oil production can occur for many different reasons and is one of the leading causes of acne in teenagers and adults.

Clogged pores

Clogged pores can be caused by dirt, oil, and impurities on the skin. It’s important to keep your skin clean and hydrated to prevent acne from forming due to clogged pores.


Bacteria can cause acne. This is usually due to things like makeup, when a smartphone touches your skin, or if you constantly touch your face with dirty hands.

Hormonal changes

Lastly, one of the more difficult causes of acne to control is hormonal changes. This is why many people experience acne breakouts around puberty. It can also occur when taking birth control, when you’re pregnant, or even when you’re stressed. This can lead to many different kinds of acne forming on your skin and they can be difficult to treat with topical treatments.

Effective Acne Treatments

Thankfully, there are a number of effective acne treatments available. Whether you’re having minor breakouts or a more severe case of acne, there are several solutions available to treat acne.

Dermatologist Recommended Topical and Oral Medications

A dermatologist may suggest various topical and oral medications to help reduce the effects of acne. This is generally used for smaller cases where acne breakouts are infrequent or are caused by your lifestyle choices.

Your dermatologist will help you identify why your breakouts occur and also offer you advice on how to prevent them from happening. For instance, they may recommend that you avoid touching your face if they believe that clogged pores and bacteria are the main reasons for your acne breakouts.

Medical-Grade Skin Care

Medical-grade skincare refers to products that are offered by a dermatologist to be incorporated into your skincare routine. These products are powerful medications that can help soothe your skin, reduce inflammation, and deal with existing acne breakouts.

Am I a Candidate for Acne Treatments?

Anyone that suffers frequent acne breakouts is a good candidate for acne treatments. If you want to eliminate the appearance of acne, manage your breakouts, and also cope with the skin irritation that acne comes with, then acne treatments are a great solution to help you. Treatments can also help reduce the appearance of acne scarring after managing a breakout.
