Acuzine Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

What causes acne
Acne occurs when the hair follicle pores become blocked. The oil called sebum builds up inside the pore and becomes infected with bacteria. When the infection remains under the skin surface, it develops into a whitehead. When the infection partly reaches the surface and changes color, it develops into a blackhead.

Shouldn't I just try to eliminate sebum from my body
No. When it isn't blocked in your pores, sebum helps keep your skin healthy.

Why does acne usually start at puberty
No one knows for certain. What is known is that the sebaceous glands that produce sebum get much larger at puberty than they were before.

Why does the skin around a pimple turn red
This redness is caused by the body's inflammatory response. Inflammation is a sign that your immune system is working to fight an infection. However, the inflammatory response doesn't always work perfectly, and can even be the cause of scarring.

If my skin turns red, does that mean that I'm going to have scars
Usually, no. Even when there will be no permanent scar, the aftereffects of the inflammatory response can leave the skin red for months, sometimes for more than a year.

What are free radicals
Free radicals are byproducts of oxidation in your body. We all need oxidation to occur as part of our life process, but there is concern that the buildup of unrecycled free radicals contributes to many conditions, including skin damage. Antioxidants, including several of the active ingredients in Acuzine, help prevent the buildup of free radicals.

Does Acuzine have any side effects
No. The active ingredients in Acuzine have not been shown to have any side effects. Studies indicate that they have a variety of beneficial healing and preventive qualities. Furthermore, the different ingredients work with each other so that they are more effective together than they would be alone.

Do I have to order your system for the rest of my life
NO! Unlike other systems that work to solve the current acne problem that you have, Acuzine works to stop the problem at it's source and in doing so will work to prevent future acne. Most of our clients will get optimal results in a one to three month period, after this time they do not need to use the system again. Most people will use Acuzine after there initial treatment for a few months out of the year as maintenance which is recommended, but not necessary.
