The formation of comedones or comedogenesis within the upper cornified segment of the hair follicle is basic to the pathophysiology of many acne form disorders. Unraveling the mysteries of comedogenesis is expected to assist the practitioner in designing a treatment consisting of effective comedolysis and prevention of further comedogenesis. Combining the above strategy with effective anti-scarring therapy will go a long way towards helping the acne patient achieve the goal of healing with perfect regeneration, while entertaining the possibility of maintenance of clear skin without additional long-term therapy. In this short discussion, the author will detail the molecular basis of comedogenesis, comedolysis and anti-scarring therapy which will provide the basis for a novel approach to the effective treatment of many acne form disorders.
