“I need my acne gone. NOW”
Movies, music and games stream live to digital devices. Same day delivery, just a click away. And when it comes to socializing, we are hyper-connected. So if instant is the new normal, it’s understandable you find the bad news hard to accept: most acne treatments can take up to six weeks to kick in.
And selfie-culture only raises the stakes. Selfies are all about capturing the moment, but they can lose their fun and spontaneity for the 90% of teens who suffer from acne . If you want to live up to the polished perfection of today’s reality stars, there’s always photoshop and make-up. But poor quality foundations, applied in heavy layers and inadequate make-up removal at the end of the day all add up to a vicious cycle for acne-prone skin.
Traditional acne treatments: too slow for the digital era
Of course, the ultimate solution to tackle acne-prone skin is to treat its root causes. And that means seeing a dermatologist. But in a world of instant results, even the top treatments can feel too slow.
“Unfortunately, your average teen just doesn’t have the patience to stick to treatments – about half of them simply give up2.” Dr. Philippe Beaulieu
