LOS ANGELES, CA The recent discovery of the "acne virus" has experts thinking it could lead to groundbreaking acne-fighting treatments. However, the controversy surrounding the 'acne virus" has many questioning if creating a virus to kill acne is safe and necessary. Dr. Alex Khadavi, a celebrated board-certified dermatologist with more than 15 years of documented research, is exposing the truth about acne, what causes it, and how to treat it.

"Acne isn't caused by dirt, makeup, or dietary factors, although these may aggravate an existing condition," says Dr. Khadavi. "The true culprit is DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a testosterone byproduct found in men and women. DHT triggers excessive stimulation of oil glands, causing clogged pores and promoting the growth of bacteria on the skin."
Millions suffer from acne daily. For those with mild acne, over-the-counter products containing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide can effectively clear breakouts. For those with moderate to severe acne, doctors often prescribe antibiotics, which can kill bacteria, but may result in harmful side effects. Still, there are many who suffer from chronic acne even after using antibiotics. Although the newly discovered "acne virus" has given hope to some, others believe using a virus to kill acne is medically unsound when an over-the-counter product clinically proven to heal existing acne and prevent future breakouts already exists.

Dr. Khadavi has developed the leading acne treatment, Clearogen, to address these issues. In clinical trials, Clearogen proved 95% effectiveness in clearing skin and eliminating symptoms before they start. Like other acne treatments, Clearogen uses FDA approved ingredients salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide to clear existing acne, but unlike other acne treatment products, Clearogen incorporates natural anti-DHT ingredients to reduce skin's oil production to normal levels and break the cycle of acne formation.

Clearogen is the ONLY over-the-counter solution that fights the damaging effects of DHT and prevents acne resurgence. FDA-approved, Clearogen is a three-step acne solution that cleans skin, reduces pore size, and lessens DHT production, leading to healthy, clear skin.

"Most acne solutions on the market clean the skin but fail to treat DHT production, and this is why they don't work in the long run," says Dr. Khadavi.
