Immediate relief, accelerated clearance, a brighter clearer skin with ance removal treatment

Acne is a debilitating medical condition, and not just “something to get over” in puberty. If left untreated it can cause scarring and blemishes lasting a lifetime, and the emotional and psychological effects remain long after the acne has stopped. Although acne scarring and hyperpigmentation can be effectively treated, prevention is better than cure.

Acne is the most common skin disorder and affects both men and women of all races. Approximately 80% of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 suffer from acne with many continuing into their 40s and beyond. Adult-onset acne is also on the increase.

Up until now the treatment of acne usually takes a long time, with results visible only weeks to months from starting systemic and topical medication. For most, this is just too long, and the urge to touch the sensitive inflamed lesions only leads to further aggregation of the condition.

Furthermore, side effects of conventional acne removal treatments have often been unacceptable, and resistance of acne-causing bacteria to antibiotics is an ever increasing problem. Not to mention the photosensitising effects of most conventional acne therapies.
