Acne vulgaris is a disease that occurs when oil and dead skin cells clog the pores of the skin. When the skin's pores are clogged, red spots and bumps known as pimples are formed, usually on the face, neck, chest, and back. In adolescents and adults, acne vulgaris is commonly called "acne." Many factors have been associated with acne. One of the factors is the increased production of fatty substances from an enlarged sebaceous gland ("oil gland").
The experimental ultrasonic device uses sound waves (called ultrasonic waves) to heat the acute acne lesion and the surrounding sebaceous ("oil") glands deep in the skin without affecting the surface of the skin. We hope that heating the sebaceous glands will reduce their size and reduce the symptoms of inflamed acne. Using ultrasonic waves to treat acne is investigational.
This is a pilot study. A pilot study is done on a small group of subjects to learn if the device will be effective and safe, before the device is used on a larger group of subjects.

A topical dermatologic agent that is used in the treatment of ACNE VULGARIS and several other skin diseases. The drug has teratogenic and other adverse effects.
A chronic disorder of the pilosebaceous apparatus associated with an increase in sebum secretion. It is characterized by open comedones (blackheads), closed comedones (whiteheads), and pustular nodules. The cause is unknown, but heredity and age are predisposing factors.
Severe and chronic form of acne characterized by large, burrowing abscesses associated with disfigurement.
Visible efflorescent lesions of the skin caused by acne or resembling acne. (Dorland, 28th ed, p18, 575)
An important regulator of GENE EXPRESSION during growth and development, and in NEOPLASMS. Tretinoin, also known as retinoic acid and derived from maternal VITAMIN A, is essential for normal GROWTH; and EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT. An excess of tretinoin can be teratogenic. It is used in the treatment of PSORIASIS; ACNE VULGARIS; and several other SKIN DISEASES. It has also been approved for use in promyelocytic leukemia (LEUKEMIA, PROMYELOCYTIC, ACUTE).
