If you haven’t been through the pains of treatment for acne before, someone who has will testify that the so called treatments are frustratingly ineffective – those days may be behind us. Quorum Innovations, researchers in the field of microbiome therapeutics, have announced brand new treatments for many common skin conditions, treatment for acne included.

The human microbiome is composed of the microorganisms that reside in or on the human body, pathogens included. These new treatments will involve ‘Probiomic Therapeutics’ which act by dislodging and killing harmful biofilms in situ, the cause of common skin conditions. These treatments have been shown to successfully destroy MRSA and Pseudomonas derived biofilms.

Biofilms & Treatment for Acne

Biofilms are essentially slimy masses of microbial cells that form on surfaces. When formed in the human body biofilms can provide protection to bacteria from antibiotics. Cells in biofilms work as a team to form structures which can grow to include tens of thousands of cells, enough to be visible to the naked eye.

In addition, the treatments simultaneously promote normal bacterial flora that are known to underpin healthy human skin.

Quorum Innovations have announced the release of a range of Probiomic Therapeutic treatments in the near future. The technology has been shown to be stable and functional in multiple treatment applications.

The area of human microbiome therapeutics hasn’t shown much development in recent years. However, with this innovative announcement, along with ongoing novel research, the future looks bright.
