New Acne Scar Resource Website Launches

Ascarfreeme.ca Offers Resources and Support for People Coping with the Aftermath of Acne

TORONTO, April 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Ascarfreeme.ca, a new online social community dedicated to helping people who suffer from scarring associated with acne, launched today in Canada. The website offers access to a wealth of free resources that address ways to cope with acne scarring—from sharing available treatment options, to providing expert advice for improving self-esteem.

"Millions of people suffer from acne scars every day, often feeling socially isolated and without hope, which is why 'A Scar Free Me' is here to help," said Dr. Ruth Tedaldi, a sought-after dermatologist affiliated with Newton-Wellesley Hospital, a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, and an expert contributor to ascarfreeme.ca. "The first step in treating acne scars is to understand the skin condition, and through ascarfreeme.ca, visitors can quickly get information on how these scars occur, what to expect at your first acne scar consultation and access to many other resources."

Features of the website include:

  • Acne Resource Library: an online index with information on treatment options and understanding how and why scars occur
  • Videos: real people talking about the visual and emotional scars that acne leaves behind
  • Confidence Corner: the official blog of ascarfreeme.ca
  • Ask the Expert: lets visitors consult with skin care and self-esteem experts
  • Community Message Board: an open forum for users to comment and share experiences

"Acne scars can negatively affect one's self-esteem and self-confidence, making people feel less inclined to participate in social situations or building a positive self-image," said Joan Breiner, Vice President of the National Association for Self-Esteem and ascarfreeme.ca resident expert. "'A Scar Free Me' is a reminder that we are not alone."
