adult acne

Acne isn’t just a teenage problem; adults can (and do) get it, too. What’s the solution? Visit us at the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center for personalized adult acne treatment. If you’ve tried conventional therapies without seeing the results you want, try something new. We can help you rediscover clear skin.

Adult Acne: How Common Is It?

Adult acne is more common than you might think. Many adults with acne have struggled with the problem since their teen years. Other adults have enjoyed a lifetime of clear skin, only to discover that acne can hit during adulthood. Often, conventional treatments that worked to treat acne as teens aren’t as effective as adults. Adult onset acne is very common in women going through menopause.

Acne is frustrating at any age, but it can be especially embarrassing as an adult. You don’t have to be self-conscious with us, as many of our acne patients are adults. We can help you, even if conventional treatments have failed.

What Causes Adult Acne?

Adult acne can have many causes. If you have adult acne, odds are one or more of these factors are at play:

  • Fluctuating Hormones
  • Stress
  • Genetics
  • Hair and Skin Care Products (choose products that are non-comedogenic and oil free)
  • Undiagnosed Medical Condition
  • Medication Side Effect

Right now, it might feel like acne will plague you forever, but don’t worry—most cases of adult acne are treatable. With help from us, you can have clear skin again.
