Photos: New Image Survey Reveals 'Perception Is Reality' When It Comes to Teenagers With Acne
Date:6/11/2009

DIGITAL SIMULATION OF ACNE ON CLEAR-SKINNED TEENS REVEALS STARTLING TRUTHS

PALM COAST, Fla., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's image-obsessed society where millions of photos are uploaded daily through digital networks such as Facebook and Flickr, how much of an impact can a common skin condition like acne have on the life of teens? Based on first impressions, teens with acne are perceived to have different personality and social traits than if they had clear skin, according to results of a new online perception survey sponsored by the American Acne & Rosacea Society (AARS), and co-authored by Dr. Eva Ritvo, psychiatrist and co-author of The Beauty Prescription.(1) The survey asked thousands of teens and adults to offer their impressions of a group of teens based solely on photos of their faces - with clear skin or digitally enhanced to simulate acne. The results, which are being released to mark the first-ever National Acne Awareness Month, also expose the significant lengths that teens with acne would go to if it meant they could get rid of their acne forever.(1a)
