Acne is a condition in the skin that appears when hair follicles are plugged with oil and dead skin cells. We can also get acne at any age. While acne is generally connected to our hormones, it can also appear depending on certain medications, diet, and stress level. If untreated, dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears. SF Bay Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Dermatology offers patients non-invasive treatments that can help lessen the development of acne, as well as improve the texture and tone of your skin.
