How should we deal with the rise in adult acne?

We all know acne isn’t something that only plagues teenagers, but lately therapists and dermatologists alike have reported a huge increase in clients suffering from the skin condition in their 30s, 40s and 50s. Though acne has always been a known side effect of hormonal changes in the body such as pregnancy, the contraceptive pill, polycystic ovary syndrome and even menopause, more and more women outside of these groups are seeking help to tackle adult-onset acne. In the February issue of Professional Beauty, assistant editor Georgia Seago uncovers some comprehensive advice on how to assess and treat it from the experts. 

Also in this issue, find out how he new framework for training in non-surgical aesthetic treatments will impact therapists. Health Education England (HEE) has published two new reports aimed at improving the safety of non-surgical procedures. The review, which was published in draft form in August and released in full in January, sets out the qualification guidelines for delivery of non-surgical cosmetic interventions. In our news analysis in the February issue, assistant editor Amanda Pauley finds out both sides of the story.
