Acne is a typical problem among young people today. Acne has a significant psychological impact on people suffering from this disease. For more than 56% of people affected by acne, skin imperfections remain the main source of physical complexes.

Surprisingly, acne remains the main reason for dermatologists consultation, 1 of 4 patients who consult a dermatologist suffer from this disease.
Adolescents are the population segment most affected by acne: over 76% of teenagers aged between 11 and 18 years have acne representing 70% of patients consulting a dermatologist for acne. In addition – between teenagers – two specific types of acne lesions co-exist causing what doctors call mixed acne.

The treatment scheme is complex and-therefore – there is a risk that it will not be followed properly. For most patients – teenagers – is difficult to follow two different treatments in the same time.
