Acne is one of the most frequent skin conditions seen by our medical professionals at Mid-Atlantic Skin. This is not surprising because according to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States.
Although it’s common, accurate information about acne can be scarce and thus frustrating for patients to find safe and effective treatments.
Acne consists of pimples that appear on the face, back and chest. About 80 percent of adolescents have some form of acne and about 5 percent of adults experience acne.
In normal skin, oil glands under the skin, known as sebaceous glands, produce an oily substance called sebum.
