How long does teenage acne last?...please help...

I started getting mild/moderate acne (not cystic or genetic) at the beggining of my freshman year in high school. It has remained constant throughout high school despite using the regiman/perscription drugs. I am now a senior in high school. My question is: how much longer is this going to last? Assuming that it doesn't stretch into my twenties and thirties, is there a chance that it will clear up by next year? I am going to college and would like to be clear. whats the average # of years that teenage acne lasts? thanks.

It should stop once you have full facial hair.. I think mines finally come to pass .. although I have had a full beard for a while.. you kids will know when its time.

from experience and from logic, a full facial beard has absolutely nil to do with it, considering the fact that a lot of men will _NEVER_ have a full facial beard, and that doesn't correlate with test production or lack thereof.

I started the regimen at the age of about 24. Every year or so I stop the regimen to see what will happen. The result? Breakouts, and within days. My family genetics see breakouts occuring into the 40s and 50s. The issue of when a person develops acne or grows out of acne is highly personalized, and one that science still does not understand. Babies and even senior citizens must sometimes cope with acne.
