Eva Ritvo, who also serves as Vice Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami.

Acne Awareness Month Educational Resources

The AARS has declared June the inaugural National Acne Awareness Month to help teenagers and their parents understand that acne is a medical condition that can be treated with help from a physician. Teens and adults alike are encouraged to visit www.acnesociety.org for more information on the causes of acne and how it can be treated.

About Acne

Acne vulgaris is one of the most widely experienced chronic skin diseases. In recent years, research has lead to a greater understanding of the pathogenesis of the disease.(2) The disorder begins with the onset of puberty and is thought to result from hormonal action on the skin's oil glands (sebaceous glands) leading to plugged pores and outbreaks.(3) It can be challenging to manage due to the variability in response to treatment and the need for long-term therapy.(4)

About American Acne & Rosacea Society

The American Acne & Rosacea Society (AARS), founded in 2005, provides a forum for the exchange of information about acne and rosacea, as well as the promotion of research into these two skin diseases. Its mission is to address the need to bring clarity to the millions of Americans who are suffering from acne and/or rosacea and who are not receiving adequate treatment.

For more information visit, www.acnesociety.org. This educational initiative was supported by Galderma Laboratories, L.P.
