DUBLIN, Dec. 03, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Acne Drugs Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

Rising awareness levels of acne and related treatment products are positively influencing the sales of acne products. Many people are availing different treatment options, increasing the demand for acne drugs. Companies are developing innovative products to meet this rising demand. New products such as Visonac by Photocure are likely to meet consumer needs.

According to the report, many acne drugs are available in the market. However, these drugs provide symptomatic treatment and do not cure the condition. Symptomatic treatment involves the reduction of acne lesions by almost 50% and not the suppression of acne recurrence. Most people with acne use isotretinoin to relieve their condition. However, this drug has teratogenic effects and cannot be prescribed for pregnant women.

Further, the report states that though the available drugs are effective in alleviating acne, they have certain harmful side effects. Dryness, burning, itching, flaking, irritation, and slight puffiness of the skin are some of the side effects of topical acne drugs. Oral drugs can also cause side effects. Solodyn (minocycline), an oral acne drug, has many side effects, and its administration requires medical supervision.
