How to Get Rid of Adult Acne

Share This Post

Acne is commonly associated with teenagers – but as someone with adult acne, you know better.

As it turns out, so do a lot of people. It’s estimated that 50 million people struggle with what’s called “adult acne,” which is chronic acne that affects people into their 20s and beyond. In fact, adult women are more likely to suffer from adult acne, thanks to hormonal changes caused by birth control, pregnancy, and menopause.

If you’re one of the millions of people who have adult acne, your best bet is to skip the over-the-counter acne solutions (most of which are meant for teenagers) and try treatments designed specifically for adults. 

At Twin Ports Dermatology, we offer a robust menu of adult acne treatments. Our approach to adult acne is customized to your skin, medical history, and lifestyle – meaning we’ll help you find an adult acne treatment that actually works.

So when it comes to getting rid of adult acne, here’s what we recommend.

Clinic Visit for Adult Acne

Here’s the thing: Many people with acne think that if they can buy the right acne solution, they’ll see an end to their complexion issues. And while some people do see results with over-the-counter regimens and solutions, the truth is that most people need a prescription or medical-grade acne treatment.

That’s because adult acne isn’t usually caused by blocked pores or excess sebum production (which is often the cause of teenage acne). Hormonal imbalances and lifestyle changes are typically at the root of adult acne cases, meaning the treatments needed to get rid of adult acne have to be a bit more complex.

That’s why we recommend a clinic visit at Twin Ports Dermatology as your first step toward treating adult acne. During your visit, one of our dermatology providers will examine your skin and make recommendations for what treatments can help you get the clear skin you’ve always wanted.


DiamondGlow Facial for Adult Acne

A DiamondGlow Facial is an excellent treatment for people with adult acne, as it aims to treat current breakouts while preventing future ones. DiamondGlow is an innovative treatment that exfoliates the skin, extracts impurities and corrects all within one single treatment. 

DiamondGlow is a good choice for you if you have a current breakout and want to get rid of it ASAP.

Medical-Grade Acne Pads

Need an acne treatment on the go? Optimal Skin’s Acne pads are perfect for your travels, gym bag or daily routine. These medical-grade pads have a high potency combination of alpha (glycolic and lactic) and beta (salicylic) hydroxy acids which, when used regularly, can produce superficial exfoliating effects like those produced by an in-office chemical peel.  

Use them 1-2 times daily for the best results. Just wash, pat dry and apply.
