Acne is one of the major recognized skin problems, mainly because it is so ubiquitous. Acne is typically a physiological occurrence of adolescent groups. The peak incidence of it is between 12 and 24 years of age (affecting nearly 85% of those individuals). Because acne occurs during formative years, the psychosocial and economic impact is undeniable (which explains why it is a billion dollar industry).

Affected people loose their self-confidence in making new relationships, particularly with the opposite sex. Acne often leads to self-consciousness and social isolation which may lead to depression. Appearance of inflammations over the face, back and chest affects one’s self esteem and body image.
