Differentiating Approach to Acne Therapy: Women vs. Men

Join Drs. Leon H. Kircik, MD and Julie Harper, MD as they discuss Acne severity and grade (comedonal, papulopustular, mixed, nodular), skin type, presence of acne scarring and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, menstrual cycle history (in women), and more, as well as the factors influencing treatment with classes of topical agents.

Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory dermatologic disease affecting an estimated 80% of the population at some point in their life; 85% of adolescents and young adult s may experience acne and prevalent in adults with more adult women being afflicted than adult men, raising the possibility that gender difference in skin may influence the pathogenesis of acne and treatment response.
Dermatologists indicate late-onset or adult -onset acne is becoming increasingly common in women in their 20s to 50s and research shows a large number of women over age 25 have acne and the prevalence of acne remains constant until age 44 at which time there is a decrease in incidence.
