Acne has an important genetic component, but it can be secondary to hormonal changes, medications or the use of inappropriate skin products. Acne usually affects adolescents because it is related to the hormonal changes that occur at that age. Among the problems secondary to acne, the most important are permanent scars and emotional stress. However, the onset of the condition in adulthood, mainly in women has been more frequently observed. Laboratory tests may be necessary to evaluate the hormonal profile of these patients. In women, acne can appear concomitantly with menstrual irregularity, increased hair on the face and body and hair loss, constituting a hyperandrogenism. The use of masks during and after the pandemic has caused and/or aggravated many cases of acne.

The earlier the treatment starts; the less scars damage may occur in the affected area and the less self-esteem may be affected. The treatment is individualized and specific for each case because it depends on the type and the severity of acne. Patients who present skin spots and scars may also present good response to tecnologies, microneedling, peelings, collagen biostimulators, among others.
