Treatments for acne are no more the same 10 years before. Research on treatments for acne is considerably improved and gave a valuable knowledge to us in dealing with the acne. It ultimately resulted in new acne therapies and enhancement in existing ones.

In order to increase the tolerance level of combination therapy, new retinoid called ‘adapalene’ which is used usually for a short period of time or in the form of consuming medications on alternative days.

Many laser and light treatments are well known today and their long run effects are unknown. So people still reluctant to go there and also it’s expensive. This would be a better alternative if the traditional methods failed to work.

An interesting fact have been found is that those who suffer from acne have low risk of heart disease but at the same time they have higher risk of caner. This is attributed to the fact of the male sex hormone activity during the puberty period which causes acne guards against the heart disease.
Studies also indicate that the acne developed teen starts to feel the family, friends and outsiders are directly or indirectly mocking or pointing out he/she have acne and starts to have ill feeling towards them. This leads to the family conflicts, disagreement in the friendship and many other problems. It leads to a lot of emotional and mental stress and they ponder over this for long time thus creates a self-destruction for them.
