DermTV – FTC Ban on Acne Apps [DermTV.com Epi #345]

Just last week, the FDA banned the first smartphone apps for making misleading health claims. In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz discusses this ruling and why the FTC banned acne apps.

And that’s if you have a trusted nearby dermatologist or a local informed pharmacy. But not anymore. We at DermTV are committed to making best-in-class dermatology and skincare guidance accessible to everyone, anytime, at your computer. Every weekday, our host, Dr. Neal Schultz, one of New York’s most trusted and respected dermatologists (see bio below), teaches skincare’s most timely and timeless issues. Topics include: the best at home techniques and new technology for facial rejuvenation, preventing and fixing sun damage from wrinkles to skin cancer, breaking news in dermatology, general skincare topics, and more.
