Post Acne for life?

I sort of have a question..

I see people here complaining about acne at age 23 and so. Will I still have acne problems at 23? Im 15 right now, my parents and so, say it should go away after puberty.

No one in my family has sure they did at my age though. My sister, 17, doesnt even have it.

It depend on the person I'm 22 and I still have acne and my cousin been really breaking out really bad and she 23 I dont really know if you have acne in your twenties. Your just have to wait and see if you will I thought when I was not a teenager anymore the promblem would go away but it has not yet. It just depend on the person I cant really say.

It definitely tends to get better with age, but certainly not always. And I think in most people who have fairly "persistent" acne (meaning it's pretty much always there, not just a pimple or two on and off), you don't see much reduction at least until the early 20s. I'm 20 and have had fairly bad acne since I was 15 or so, I'm finally quite a bit better now after a course of accutane. But I've still got some red marks and scars that I'd really wish would just go away, but I know it'll take time.
