ZAPNE consists of a natural topical treatment developed to be used on affected areas once a week for 4 weeks, and thereafter weekly as needed. Importantly, it has demonstrated efficacy superior to existing acne treatments without the side effects.
Other acne treatments exhibit a number of adverse effects, which range from mild skin irritation to possible antibiotic resistance and life-threatening issues, such as depression, birth defects and suicides. All existing topical treatments usually require twice daily application and a long-lead time (6-8 weeks) before the benefits of treatment are seen, and in many cases the acne severity actually worsens before it improves. Persons using existing topical treatments often experience skin irritation and dryness, sometimes accompanied by itching and burning. Antibiotics, a mainstay of acne therapy, are becoming less effective as acne bacteria has become more resistant to antibiotic treatments, resulting in ineffective therapy and an increased risk for developing new strains with even stronger antibiotic resistance. Oral retinoids, a form of acne medication, cause birth defects if used by females during pregnancy or before conception. In addition to birth defects, Accutane®, the most effective oral retinoid currently available, has also been linked to depression and suicides.
In comparison with both OTC and prescription treatments, ZAPNE requires less effort by the patient to remain in compliance, has demonstrably greater efficacy based on both pre-clinical studies and therapeutic trials, and carries none of the detrimental side effects of other treatments.
