Management of acne vulgaris with hormonal therapies in adult female patients
TLDR
The aim of this work is to review the hormonal drugs for management of acne vulgaris in adult women and determine whether these drugs are considered a rational choice given the severity and chronicity of this condition in this group of patients.

TLDR
The objective of this work was to make an overview of new data about female acne at the clinical and epidemiological level to be precise if female acne has to be considered as a subtype of acne different from teenager acne.
A Study of Clinical and Hormonal Profile of Adult Women with Acne
TLDR
Adult women with acne present with more inflammatory lesions predominantly over chin and lower half of the face, while comedones being rare in them, according to this study.
Acne Vulgar no Adulto
TLDR
In most cases, adult acne affects the face, has mild to moderate clinical severity and is associated with normal hormonal levels.
Case Report. A Case Report of Adult Acne
TLDR
A 25-year-old woman with adult acne and elevated levels of testosterone and prolactine is presented, which is among the commonest inflammatory skin diseases affecting pilosebaceous units.
Acne in adult women: epidemiological, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.
TLDR
The clinical manifestations of AFA in patients without hyperandrogenism are moderate, with predominance of inflammatory lesions, similar to that of acne vulgaris; however, special attention should be taken with more irritating medication since this group appears to be more predisposed to skin irritations.
Adult female acne: a new paradigm
TLDR
A holistic approach to acne therapy should be taken in adult females, which combines standard treatments with adjunctive therapy and cosmetic use, and recommendations for acne therapy in this patient group are provided.
Combination therapy of acne in women: searching for optimum solutions
TLDR
The authors describe their own experience of treating delayed acne using the Hyseac line of medical and cosmetic products in a combination with microdermabrasion and no-needle mesotherapy using the vitaPeel/vital Russian device.
Adult-onset acne: prevalence, impact, and management challenges
TLDR
The majority of the normoandrogenic acne patients present a history since adolescence, but in many cases the lesion distribution and intensity change with time, and there is often a typical localization of the lesions in the lower third of the face and lateral region of the neck.
Female acne: a subtype different from teenager acne
TLDR
In conclusion, specific global assessment and a therapeutic algorithm would be necessary for female acne, which could be the result of both a peripheral hormonal hypersensitivity of the skin and a chronic stimulation of innate immunity.

Post‐adolescent acne: a review of clinical features
TLDR
Most patients had persistent acne; but true late‐onset acne (onset after the age of 25 years) was seen in 28 (18.4%) of women and four (8.3%) of men, and a family history revealed that 100 (50%) of patients had a first‐degree relative with post‐adolescent acne.

TLDR
The principles of treatment of acne in the elderly do not differ from those in other age groups, although the emphasis during counseling needs to focus on explanation and reassurance rather than prognosis.
Treatment of acne with intermittent isotretinoin
TLDR
It is suggested that intermittent moderate dose isotretinoin may be a cost‐effective alternative to full dose isot retinoin in a carefully selected group of adult patients with acne.

Prevalence of facial acne in adults.
The familial risk of adult acne: a comparison between first‐degree relatives of affected and unaffected individuals
TLDR
The study suggests that familial factors are important in determining individual susceptibility to adult persistent facial acne, and genetic factors may determine the failure of acne‐prone follicles to evolve into acne‐resistant follicles in early adult life.
Epidemiology of acne in the general population: the risk of smoking
TLDR
Smoking is a clinically important contributory factor to acne prevalence and severity and a significant dose‐dependent relationship between acne severity and daily cigarette consumption was shown by linear regression analysis.
Update in retinoid therapy of acne
TLDR
Topical retinoids have been shown to expulse mature comedones, reduce microcomedone formation, and exert immunomodulatory effects, which justifies their use as first‐line treatment in most types of noninflammatory and inflammatory acne and makes them uniquely suitable as long‐term medication to maintain remission after cessation of initial combination therapy.
‘Smoker’s acne’: a new clinical entity?
TLDR
Smokers with JA had a probability to be affected by current acne that was four times higher than in nonsmokers which suggests that smoking could be a major contributing factor for adult acne in predisposed subjects.
