FTC Declares Acne Apps Fraudulent


To iPhone, iPad and iPod users – have you heard about the “acne treatment” apps, AcneApp and Acne Pwner?

These two apps claim to be able to zap acne through exposing your blemishes a few minutes a day to coloured lights, which the apps emitted. The blue and red lights are claimed to be able to help eliminate the bacteria responsible for acne and also promote the growth of collagen. All you have to do is turn one of the apps on and hold your device up to your blemishes, which can be done any time of the day. Priced at $.99 and $1.99, is it too good to be true? Of course!

The Federal Trade Commission has taken action against AcneApp and Acne Pwner, ordering the developers to stop advertising their software as a cure for acne because their claims are fraudulent. Any beneficial effect toward eliminating acne has been found to be baseless, much to the chagrin of the thousands of people who have purchased the app.

Don’t be duped by false claims. Acne can only be treated effectively with sound medical advice and solutions that have been clinically researched, tried and tested, such as Toronto chemical peels.
