Not Just for Teenagers
Despite the popular belief that acne is a teenage problem that you grow out of, the fact is that people of all ages can be stricken with acne at some point in their lives. It is also more common than people think, with 4 out of 5 people experiencing outbreaks at some point after the teenage years. Although it can be more common and severe for teens, it can persist well into adulthood and result in permanent scarring. Thankfully, microdermabrasion can effectively address this scarring.
How Acne Progresses
Acne begins in the skin’s oil glands right below the pore that is visible on your skin if you look at it with a magnified mirror. The follicle canal, where the hair is contained, constantly pushes the oil along with the hair growing out of the pore and onto the surface of the skin. However, if this natural progression of oil is blocked, then bacteria that normally live on the skin can infiltrate into the pore and grow under the surface of the skin. The body fights the resulting infection, leading to inflammation and swelling of the pore.
