Acne is a universal condition. A person is more likely to develop acne than any other disease.
It usually starts in adolescence and resovles by the mid twenties, but may continue beyond this age. Some degree of acne will affect over 90% of men and over 80% of all women at some time
in their lives, and many of these cases may require the help of a physician.

Acne develops earlier in women than in men and this may be due in part to the fact that, in general, women mature earlier than men. In fact, comedones (black heads and white heads)
may be an early sign of puberty and often preceed more inflammatroy lesions (pimples) by two
to three years.

Acne is a chronic, inflammatory condition that affects a particular type of pore or follicle know
as the sebaceous follicle. These sebaceous follicles contain large oil glands (known as sebaceous glands) with deep and winding canals and a small, thin hair. These follicles are
most numerous and the largest on the face but can also be found on the ears, neck, chest,
back, and upper arms. Beacuse of their structure, they are prone to the development of comedones. These comedones may then progress into pimples, pustules, and even cysts or nodules.
