Do Topical Acne Product Really Work?

There are 4 factors involved in the formation of acne lesions:

  1. Increase in sebum (oil)
  2. Keratin and sebum plug the hair follicle leading to comedones (blackheads)
  3. P. acne bacteria grows within the plug
  4. The plug becomes inflamed

Acne treatments target the formation of new lesions, not old ones. 

The most common cause of acne treatment failure is patients discontinuing their products.  Topical products take 2-3 months to see the effect.  Many patients stop their treatment products due to side-effects of the products such as skin dryness, peeling, redness, itching, burning and stinging. 

What they may be missing is ceramides.

Acne-affected skin is often deficient in ceramides (fat molecules that help the skin retain water).  Daily use of ceramides can improve skin dryness and irritation by repairing and maintaining the skin barrier.  Many patients are afraid of moisturizers since so many of them contribute to acne.  If you can relate, then we have one more for you to try, and we guarantee it will work for you.

HA5® by SkinMedica®

HA5 is a deep hydrator that supports the skin’s ability to produce its own hydration.  Hyaluronic acid, found in our tissues, bathes the cells with moisture.  As we age, we lose this substance.  In fact, one half of this molecule is gone by the time we are 50 years old.  For those of us living in desert climates like Colorado and Arizona, our skin is craving moisture.  As an aesthetic nurse who has done facials for more than 20 years, I have seen some acneic skin clear just by the addition of this product. 

We love this product in our office so much, we think everyone should use it.  It is amazing for restoring moisture to the skin, great not only for break-out prone skin, but for anyone with fine lines or wrinkles.  We’re so eager for you to experience the benefits of this product, we have discounted it by 25% while supplies last!
