Dermalogica MediBac - Adult Acne Products
A common misconception is that acne only affects teenagers. More than before, adults also suffer from oily and acneic skin conditions.
Clinical studies indicate that between 40 and 55 percent of the adult population in the 20-40 age group are diagnosed with a low grade, persistent acne and oily skin. According to the Journal of dermalogica American Academy of Dermatology, 54% of women older than age 25 have some facial acne, which is often attributed to hormonal fluctuations that trigger excess sebum resulting in acne.
Acne arising in adulthood is more likely to be inflammatory, with fewer comedones than teenage acne, and with lesions predominantly located around the mouth, chin and jaw line. Likewise, adults often have sensitized skin, or a combination of skin conditions in addition to their acne, which makes treatment more challenging than treatment of teens who generally have a more resilient, uniform oily skin condition.
The Dermalogica Medibac range addresses these issues, giving completely focused skin care solution targeted toward helping alleviate the symptoms caused by adult acne.
