Facial Acne (Acne Vulgaris)

Facial Acne (Acne Vulgaris)

Acne or acne vulgaris is a common skin disease in both males and females that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne usually appears on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders.


The main signs of acne vulgaris are areas of scaly red skin, blackheads and whiteheads, and inflammatory lesions or pimples and possible scarring.

Acne is very common among teens. About 8 in 10 preteens and teens have acne, along with many adults. In fact, about 17 million people in the United States have acne. Acne is so common that it’s considered a normal part of growing from a kid to an adult. It usually gets better after the teen years. Some women who never had acne growing up will have it as an adult, often right before their menstrual periods.
