ACNE MANAGEMENT AND ACNE SCARS
Acne is characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), nodules (large papules) and possibly scarring. Acne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.
Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, affecting more than 96% of teenagers.
