But spot-on foam gives only "pluses". It absorbs almost instantly and without making you feel sticky. Foam test, known as yet FMX101, showed that they are as effective as the pill. When applying it once a day, the number of lesions was reduced by 72% in three months. Serious side effects have been identified for none of the volunteers.

Most often acne is provoked by bacteria Propionibacterium acnes. For their growth constant supply of oxygen is needed. In case of oxygen deficiency that often occurs if you have the problem skin, the bacteria begins to attack the cells of the body, trying to get oxygen from the bloodstream. In response to this invasion, the immunity system sends white blood cells to defend the organism. It results in inflammation and swelling that leads to rashes. According to foam developer, Foamix Inc, their product must pass the final clinical trials next year. And it may appear in the market in the next 2-3 years.
