As a dedicated healthcare professional, your commitment to providing the best care for your patients is unparalleled. Acne, a prevalent skin condition primarily affecting adolescents, demands accurate understanding and proficient management. Our specialised Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course is meticulously designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the realm of acne management.
Acne, often striking during the teenage years and gradually diminishing in adulthood, poses both physical and psychological challenges for those it affects. The peak prevalence, typically observed between ages 14 to 17 in girls and 16 to 19 in boys, coincides with the heightened hormonal activity of puberty. However, the earlier onset of puberty in girls underscores the urgency of proactive intervention.
While it's reassuring that most cases of adolescent acne eventually resolve, the potential for long-term consequences, such as disfiguring scar formation, underscores the importance of early intervention.
