Hormonal acne

Jawline acne is usually connected to hormones. You may be experiencing hormonal imbalance. I would suggest you to seek professional opinion from a certified dermatologist who will help you treat and successfully eradicate your acne onset. Good luck!

Most often a combination approach is needed to deal with acne breakouts/scarring. I suggest a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers, peels, and skin care to determine the best regimen for you.  Best, Dr. Emer.
