About AARS

The American Acne and Rosacea Society is an alliance of dermatology medical professionals dedicated to elevating the understanding and treatment of acne and rosacea.

Managing the care of acne and rosacea patients forms one of the greatest parts of the daily dermatologic practice. Despite this, the academic, research and policy making communities devote little attention to these diseases. Many lay people, non-dermatologists and even some dermatology professionals consider these disorders to be little more than minor inconveniences. The AARS is devoted to changing this misrepresentation.

‘Acne Vulgaris', edited by Drs. Alan Shalita, James Del Rosso, and Guy Webster, was published with the hope that it would lead to further research, discussion, and refinement of our concepts of both the pathogenesis and treatment of acne.
