Real talk: Acne sucks. Trying to figure out which products to use to successfully treat your zits can be a brain drain (and a major wallet-suck), and when over the counter methods fail, getting to the dermatologist can take a lot of time and end up costing a lot of money.
Enter MDacne, a new app that’s trying to make treat acne as easy as swiping right on tinder — without ever having to set foot in a doctor’s office.
“MDacne is a mobile app that was built to help people with acne,” says Dr. Yoram Harth, the company’s Chief Medical Officer. “The user starts with a quick Selfie, and the app analyses the user skin and provides him/her with a detailed personalized daily skin care routine that matches his/her acne type and severity.”
So can an app like this really make a difference? According to Dr. Harth, 90 percent of the 50 million people dealing with acne never see a dermatologist, and end up treating their skin with wrong or ineffective products that don’t match their conditions. With the app, they’ll be able to get advice on the right solutions.
