Recent advances in the delivery of acne therapeutics
By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Acne is the most common skin disorder in adolescents with a prevalence of 80-85 percent. The problem starts when the hair follicles become clogged by androgen-induced increased sebum production, dirt and dead skin cells. Sometimes, Propionibacterium acnes can also be present, leading to redness, swelling and pus. The combination of all these factors is acne, which includes whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and cysts. In terms of stages, acne can be mild, moderate or severe. Treatment strategies for acne can vary with the stage and intensity of the disease.
