Actress, producer and model Kate Bosworth is the new face of Allergan plc’s ACZONE® (dapsone) Gel, 7.5%. ACZONE® Gel, 7.5% is a once-a-day prescription topical treatment for acne in patients 12 years of age and older. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in February 2016. Bosworth teamed up with New York City dermatologist and Practical Dermatology® editorial advisory board member Joshua Zeichner, MD to discuss the complexities of acne and acne care at a New York City media event. “While one of my favorite parts of the job is being able to travel the world, my on-the-go schedule can encounter several inconsistencies, like lack of sleep or environmental changes,” Bosworth says in a news release. “Finding a balance with a healthy lifestyle and consistent skin care regimen has helped me tremendously. I visited my dermatologist and was prescribed ACZONE® Gel, 7.5% to treat my acne.”
