Serious acne can cause major trauma for teens and young adults, including depression and suicidal thoughts. In a recent study, researchers surveyed 4000 teens, 15% of whom had a serious acne problem. Alarmingly, nearly 25% of the teens with serious acne admitted having suicidal thoughts, compared to only 11% of the teens who did not have an acne problem. The results of another study suggested that over 50% of teens were at risk of mental and/or emotional issues due to acne. The study also showed that 52% of the acne-affected teens were also likely to have low attachment to friends and do poorly in school.


Beautiful You is excited to introduce AviClear, the first and only FDA-cleared laser treatment for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe acne.
