Reclaim your life, Breakthrough and Break Clear of acne.

Are you tired of wasting money and time on expensive creams and spa

treatments, ineffective and even dangerous pills, supplements, and

lifestyle advice that don't clear your acne? Maybe you've been dreaming

of the day when a miracle product will appear that'll actually work. In

the meantime, you've been frustrated by the ongoing battle with your

skin and having to revolve your life around unpredictable breakouts.

Breaking Clear: Breaking Acne Rules is a revolutionary book that will

reframe what pustular, inflamed-cystic acne is and propose a paradigm

shift in treatment of this most common skin disease in the world. What the skincare and medical industries don't tell you is that the chemical and pharmaceutical treatments are ineffective in clearing acne and may cause significant damage to the body. Acne is not a normal condition like aging but a disease caused by an opportunistic bacterial infection of the oil glands. Acne is not caused by dirt, diet, exercise or genetics. It is an encapsulated pustule, an abscess which is a surgical infection, like a tooth abscess, which must be opened, drained and disinfected. Lotions, potions, hope and prayers do not work on surgical infections. Why spend another second changing your whole life around for acne when you can have definitive surgical treatment and start a life of maintaining and enjoying clear skin.                                                     

Step by step, Dr. Ishoo explains his philosophy and treatment approach of cystic acne along with answering common questions, providing tips to clear acne and clears up confusion about common acne myths. Dr. Ishoo’s intensive, hands-on treatments are designed to force the skin to break out until the treatment breaks through and you break clear. There is no need to pollute your body to clear your skin.                                         


                                                                  Clear your acne, your mind will follow.


The concepts in this book will hopefully disrupt the status quo and cause a seismic paradigm shift from medical to surgical treatment of inflamed cystic acne.
