Are You Struggling With Acne?

Acne affects 5.6 million Canadians a year and is a skin condition most commonly seen by doctors and dermatologists. It occurs when pores become clogged by dead skin cells resulting in accumulation of sebum, an oily substance produced by your oil glands.

Bacteria within pores, called Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes), can contribute to pore blockage and inflammation – visible as redness, swelling and pus that may accompany acne spots. The result is Acne, and classifications include blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts.

99% of Acne is found on the face but about 50% of cases also affect the body.
