The British Journal of Dermatology (19thJune 2015 by JKL Tan and K Bhate et al) reported that acne is estimated to affect 9.4% of the global population, making it the 8th most prevalent disease worldwide. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that acne is most common in pubescent teens, with boys most frequently affected, particularly with more sever forms of the disease”


A study of 92 private dermatology clinics found a 200% increase in the rise of adults seeking specialist acne treatment (The Telegraph 18.1.2016, The rise of adult acne is like an epidemic – India Sturgis reporting). 


The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (1stFebruary 2017, Tan J, Kang S, Leyden J et al) highlighted that “scarring is a known and bothersome companion to acne vulgaris”. Following their 1,972 patient analysis by 120 investigators, they found the incidence of acne scarring to be 43%”
