If you don’t believe it, you should. Men in Philadelphia and New Jersey have acne, too. According to, men have two times the skin oil women do, which may cause much worse acne flare-ups for them. They also have thicker skin and 10 times more male hormones, known as androgens, than women. These are only some of the reasons acne is a real problem area for men.

Breakouts may be caused by shaving and/or razors, shaving creams and gels; bodybuilding and calorie increases; steroids; or sports facemasks. Men also tend to have more severe acne on their torso and neck area. Acne does subside for men as they graduate into adulthood, but 25% still experience it and may have more severe cases than women if it does head into the adult years with them.

This is why The Hughes Center Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa offers the latest acne treatments on the market. Solutions could range from micropeels to chemical peels, Isolaz therapy, ALA or aminolevulinic acid peel with light stimulation (IPL), Allumera – another peel that can be combined with light stimulation, Hydroxy Acid Facial or a Tanda Zap Home Treatment. Depending on the cause of the acne and needs of the patient, The Hughes Center cosmetic surgeons will work to treat the current acne and control future outbreaks.
