Hey there! Acne is not age specific, so it can occur at all stages of a persons life whether as a teen, or as an adult. Although there are different types of acne, adult acne is the same as teenage/adolescent acne. The only real difference might be the cause of a persons acne. As an adult, a person's acne could be more stress related, and if a female, more hormone based. As a teen the reasons might be different. Hope this helps!

Hey, this is a great question. I am suffering for acne for the first time at age 23. I was surprised when the derm told me that "puberty might not be done with me" so my acne may not be "adult acne." Lol.. I have been out of high school for five years and have a child, I don't think this is a teenage thing!
