It is now common knowledge that this skin ailment can have serious psychological and social consequences for both adults and teens. What’s more, many people wrongly believe that nothing can be done for acne and that only time can solve this embarrassing problem.
Acne can cause loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, embarrassment, shame, anger, frustration, and feeling of helplessness. Ultimately such feelings can lead people to cut off contact with others, give up their normal activities, and even show signs of depression. These negative effects may cause them to miss out on social and/or professional opportunities. Acne can leave serious scars, as much emotional and psychosocial as physical. Effective tools for improving the skin’s appearance are now available.
Don’t hesitate to discuss them with your healthcare professional.
