Our understanding of the microbiome and the role of P. acnes in skin homeostasis and acne pathogenesis is evolving. Multiple methods for sampling and identifying the skin's microbiome exist and understanding the differences between the abilities of various methods to characterize the microbial landscape is warranted. This study compared the microbial diversity of samples obtained from the cheeks of twenty volunteers, collected by surface swab, pore strips, and cyanoacrylate glue follicular biopsy.
Phenotype and Antimicrobial Activity of Th17 Cells Induced by Propionibacterium acnes Strains Associated with Healthy and Acne Skin.
Acne is the most common of all skin conditions. It affects people across several age groups, from adolescence to middle age. It is fundamentally a disorder of the pilosebaceous units of the skin, which consist of the hair follicles and the attached sebaceous glands.
Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous units of the skin which causes breakouts, or spots, to appear on the body. The most common sites of acne are the face, the neck, the upper chest and back, and the shoulders.
Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, common among adolescents, which may be extended to adulthood. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of hormonal disorders in women with acne resistance to conventional therapy.
Assessment of a new biological complex efficacy on dysseborrhea, inflammation, and Propionibacterium acnes proliferation
Acne vulgaris is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit triggered by Propionibacterium acnes. A bakuchiol, Ginkgo biloba extract, and mannitol (BGM) complex has been developed to provide patients with acne with a specific dermocosmetic to be used adjunctively with conventional treatments. The aim of these studies was to assess the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidative potential of BGM complex and its individual compounds as well as its impact on sebum composition.
BioPharmX presented results of two studies comparing oral and topical minocycline gel during a poster session at the Skin Disease Education Foundation’s 17th annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar.
Acne, an inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit, is now recognized and investigated as a chronic disease. Since the physiological and psychosocial impact of acne may be long-lasting, the treatment of acne vulgaris poses a formidable challenge for dermatologists.
Acne is a common inflammatory skin disease which affects the pilosebaceous units of the skin. It can have severe psychological effects and can leave the patient with severe skin scarring.
Long-Term Clinical and Histological Effects of a Bipolar Fractional Radiofrequency System in the Treatment of Facial Atrophic Acne Scars and Acne Vulgaris in Japanese Patients: A Series of Eight Cases
This retrospective case series was designed to compare the long-term safety and efficacy of bipolar fractional radiofrequency (FRF) therapy as a treatment for atrophic acne scars (ASs) and acne vulgaris.
