By late adolescence, almost all individuals have experienced some degree of acne. A broad range of acne treatments has been shown to be safe and effective in adults. While still sparse, emerging data now also document similar safety and efficacy of these agents for children >12 years of age. For younger children with preadolescent acne, where data are more limited or unavailable, it seems reasonable to extrapolate from the findings of studies involving older children >12 years of age. This article reviews the latest evidence and current expert opinions on acne therapies in the pediatric age group.
