I am 61 years old and still suffering from the damaging psychological affects of having severe acne for years. Although my acne has cleared up (with Roaccutane) I am left with scars. I was left with a scar on my left cheek which I was advised (by a dermatologist) to have treated with a facial filler. This filler began to cause problems so I had to have it removed and have been left with a worse scar than before! Although my skin is the clearest it has ever been and I have no wrinkles, I am still self conscious of my scarring. I have realised that I need to accept my scars and love myself for who I am. This has taken me 40 years to get to this stage. This is an example of how acne can still affect a person's self esteem and confidence years later.

Acne can cause deep psychological issues. It is important parents support their children and do everything in their power to get the best possible result. For some, it will mean dealing with the skin condition, but in other cases, there may be a need to enlist a professional to assist with any emotional problems.
