Dr. Wolff’s acne attack –
how this medical device works
Making life as hard as possible for bacteria — this is how
Dr. Wolff‘s acne attack medical device works.
The cream, which contains fruit acid and its salt (total con-
tent 10%), regulates the skin‘s pH for a long period, creating
very poor growing conditions for acne-promoting bacteria.1, 2
This is why most patients with mild forms of common acne
(Acne vulgaris) who applied Dr. Wolff‘s acne attack daily
noticed a significant improvement in skin condition after
only 6 ½ weeks.
It was overwhelmingly rated as well to very well tolerated in
a comprehensive efficacy study.3

How is acne formed?
Acne is a condition which occurs because sebaceous glands
in the skin react to the hormonal changes of puberty.
This results in more of the cells in the top layer of the skin
being deposited in the sebaceous glands.
This causes the formation of visible
 blackheads (= comedones)
These comedones can turn into
 red spots (= papules) or
 pus-filled spots (= pustules)

Particular bacteria
are responsible for
this process (Propi-
onibacterium acnes).
Their decomposition
products promote the
conversion of come-
dones into papules            Comedones            Pustules
and pustules, and
the formation of new

When do people get acne?
Acne is most common in people
aged 16-22. But it is also found
in younger and older people.

Where is acne found?
Spots develop from special sebaceous glands which are only
found on the face and on the chest and back.

Do fast foods or
sweets affect acne?
No. Rumours that chocolate and
fast food, for example, cause acne
just won‘t die. But a correlation
has never been proven. Although,
in general, of course, a balanced
diet is always good for the body.

Does acne have anything to do with
lack of cleanliness?
Excessive skin cleansing can actually exacerbate acne. There
is no need to do more than wash your skin once or twice daily
with a mild cleanser.

Does sunbathing help?
There is no evidence to suggest a positive correlation.
Actually, UV light even forms tiny new blackheads, so that
after a while even more spots form.

Is it okay to wear
Yes. It is important, though, that
the make-up has a low fat content.
Otherwise it could make the acne
worse. Eye shadow, mascara and
lipstick can be used without
problems because these products
do not come in contact with acne-
prone skin.

                         How long until the
                         spots clear up?
                         Acne is a serious skin condition.
                         So it is unrealistic for the spots
                         to disappear in a few days. Even
                         the best medications or medical
                         devices need time to work. The
                         first signs that the treatment has
                         been successful often take a few
                         weeks to be apparent.
