The Canadian Dermatology Association says a staggering 5.6 million Canadians are affected by acne. That’s 20% of the population! The majority of those affected are in their teens to early twenties, however acne affects thousands of men and women beyond that age group. Pimples aren’t just a teen’s problem – it can be a minor to serious concern for individuals who are middle aged and older, from 35 year old business men to women in their fifties going through menopause.
Acne can appear just about anywhere on the body, but the most troubling are those in visible areas, namely the face. In fact, a study conducted by Canadian researchers has found that having acne, even when mild, can negatively affect your self esteem and self confidence, making you feel sad and depressed. For this reason, we find that the overwhelming majority of patients who receive acne treatment at our clinics target the face.
The most effective method of eliminating acne depends on your skin type and the severity of your acne. While we offer a number of in-clinic treatments, you may also find SkinTx Acne Treatment System to be as effective. This treatment consists of skincare products that you can use at home on a daily basis.
