Hormonal Acne Information

There are many treatment options available for acne and one among them which is most suitable for women is the Hormonal treatment. Hormonal treatment of acne, limited to women, offers a different approach that is helpful when other treatments are ineffective.

It is not known what triggers adult onset acne. Hormones called androgens are produced at high rates in both males and females during puberty. This increased level of androgen accelerates the production of sebum, the skin's natural oil, creating overly oily skin and acne.
