Acne is not just a problem for teenagers.

It affects all ages and genetics is a strong determining factor. This explains why some people get acne and others don’t, despite similar diet and lifestyle. Acne doesn’t make someone dirty or unhygienic. In over 80% of cases, acne is caused by their genetics and out of their control. Many continue to suffer despite trying everything to clear their acne, causing physical and emotional pain. This is why a pharmacogenetic approach is imperative to getting to the right treatment plan when over the counter treatments are not enough.

Who is affected by acne?

Acne is a disease that affects all ages of the population worldwide. 1 in 2 women over the age of 25 continue to suffer. Although acne is a treatable disease, many patients do not get the right treatment in time, which can lead to permanent scarring and increased anxiety and depression. The sooner effective treatment is started, the better the outcome, both physically and mentally.
