Survey: 43% With Acne Worry They'll Never Have Clear Skin


Ninety percent of acne sufferers experience daily insecurities related to their acne, and 43% worry they will never have clear skin, according to a new survey conducted by Cutera, Inc.

June is Acne Awareness Month, and Cutera said in a press release that the findings of the survey “highlight the impact of acne on individuals and emphasize the substantial role of novel treatments” such as Cutera’s AviClear, an FDA-cleared energy device for long-term treatment of mild, moderate, and severe inflammatory acne.

The survey also found that six in 10 people said the struggles in treating acne can be worse than the acne itself, and that 81% of acne sufferers said they wish they knew more about in-office treatments, with lasers being the No. 1 option they are considering.
