Acne: More Than Just Pimples
Monday, March 28, 2016

Did you know that acne can have profound psychological effects well beyond the teenage years? Far more than just a nuisance of puberty, acne (even mild acne) can cause significant social and psychological harm, to say nothing of long-term physical effects such as scarring.

Acne affects adolescents at a critical time in their social development. Studies have found strong links between physical appearance and peer status, and acne can be a contributing factor in self-esteem and body image issues that plague young people in the age of social media where they are constantly on display. Because psychological issues like these occur during the formative years, they can have profound impact on everything from classroom engagement and learning to sports participation, and in some people the distress of acne may even result in depression.

The good news is that the variety and potency of acne treatments is improving rapidly. "The absolute best way to improve negative feelings about acne is to treat it," says David Pariser, MD, a former president of the American Academy of Dermatology.
