Discoloured and pockmarked skin is an unavoidable side-effect of the process of teleomere repair. All patients of immortality applications, from Young Gum to Eternity·8, suffer the unsightly but not uncomfortable "freckled acne" for a variable time period immediately after treatment. Fracne has proved useful as a diagnostic indicator of the successful uptake for non-cryogenetically based immortality treatments, however this is not much consolation to the sufferers. Celebrities tend to vanish from public view while their complexion recovers, sometimes for many months. Also known rather poetically as "rejuvination" or, less kindly, "the time pox", the condition is completely unrelated to bioeffervescence.
