Teen Acne

Acne is a skin condition that results in inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions. It is commonly associated with adolescent skin, however it actually affects many age groups at different stages of life. While some forms require medical/dermatological attention, most people will improve by following a daily skincare program.

Acne Facts

  • 40% of females are affected, peaking at 14-17 years of age.
  • 35% of males are affected, peaking at 16-19 years of age

Causes of Acne

  • Hormonal changes (from teens – adulthood)
  • Dead skin cells
  • Excess oil (sebum)
  • Bacteria (P. Acnes Bacteria)
  • Redness and irritation
  • Environmental damage
  • Damaged and weakened skin

For teens, acne can be especially stressful to deal with. It’s important for teens to learn the basics of good skincare and to use the proper skincare products that will treat and prevent acne.

Acne starts when bacteria breeds in sebum, especially in hair follicles. Sebum production is stimulated and produced within hair follicles. Hormones stimulate rapid cell growth.  An infection results, causinga  pimple to develop.

PRIORI® Advanced AHA can treat dead skin cells, bacteria, inflammation and the oil glands with homecare products and a professional treatment plan.
