Pleasanton, CA /PRNewswire/ -- Roche Holding AG, the world's biggest maker of cancer drugs, recently announced the withdrawal of its Accutane acne medicine from the US Market. The decision was largely driven by falling market share, the product reaching the end of its life cycle, and the high cost of personal injury lawsuits. (i)
"Accutane is a powerful drug to treat acne, however it does not come without consequence”, says Nikki Rasmussen, RN, owner of YOLO aesthetic boutique and Med Spa.  Patients need a viable alternative in their battle against acne.
YOLO utilizes a combination of therapies to treat common acne, as well as Acne Vulgaris.  Acne Vulgaris is a disease which can cause longstanding psychological and emotional harm to patients and often results in scarring.
It is imperative that all clients that suffer from acne to be seen by a Dermatologist for evaluation, however at YOLO we have laser based treatments as well as peels that are specific for the treatment of acne that work in conjunction with the treatment plan prescribed by your Doctor.
Laser treatments work by ridding the bacteria that are the cause of the acne as well as delivering heat/energy to the glands that are the cause of the overproduction of “oil/sebum” that contribute to acne formation.  “Utilizing the Sciton laser, our clients have seen immediate results from our therapies for acne and long lasting results”, says Nikki Rasmussen, RN.
