Acne – Is a Cure Around the Corner?
Date:6/12/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Like many other diseases, the fight against acne is often frustrating as there is no definitive treatment available as a cure-all. However, according to a June 5, 2013 article from The Atlantic, titled “Why Does Acne Still Exist,” researchers are working towards creating a definitive cure for the pesky skin condition by isolating the bacterium responsible. The acne fighting industry including research, testing, and marketing treatments in America spends $3 billion dollars annually (Go to goo.gl/VoRwi).

“As a cosmetic dermatologist, I can certainly appreciate the devastating impact severe acne can have on a patient,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Even with the billions of dollars spent on researching and treating acne we don’t appear to be close yet to a cure or vaccine.”

As patients consistently failed to see results from the range of antibiotics available to treat acne, a new study was conducted and published in early 2013, showing that the presence of a specific bacterium does not always correlate with the severity of a patient’s acne condition. The study found that just like most bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes refers to many strains, and that each could result in a different level of acne. The study also seemed to indicate that killing off every strain would necessarily produce the best result.

Propionibacterium acnes is a form of bacteria that everyone carries on their skin. Research is evolving to question whether it is actually the bacteria causing the problem as was always the theory, or if the trouble could actually be within each individual’s immune system's response to that bacterium.

Genetic inheritance continues to play a strong role in acne presence---shown to be traceable in over 80% of acne cases that are considered to be severe. The most recent findings indicate a potential correlation between different types of diets and their possible impacts on acne severity.

“The fact that acne is a human-only disease makes it difficult to study,” says Dr. Ourian. “We can’t test treatments and vaccines on mice.”

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others. More information about potential acne treatments can be found on Epione’s website.
