So the results for the ASC-J9 cream have been posted. For those who don't know, AndroScience developed a cream that has a molecule that block androgen receptors. So in other words, the sebaceous glands would be blocked from getting androgens to stimulate them in producing more oil.
So the highest dose tested was the only one to give significant results, with a 45% reduction of lesions, in comparison to the control cream. Also, more people went down in their acne scale, total of 28, in comparison to the control which was 23.
This cream needs further improvement in my opinion, because is nowhere near a miracle. It sounds just as effective as retinols, so it probably has to be paired with other topicals. This cream is nowhere near the effectiveness of accutane, and I think its because you have to remember that accutane not only lowers oil production significantly, but it also has other factors, like controls skin shedding and it's antiinflammatory. I will stick with accutane.
