Although we here at Maine Laser Skin Care have always carried products to treat a variety of skin ailments, I often times try to compile a certain combination of individual skin care products into one easy-to-use kit or system. These kits not only saves people time and money, but they are also intended to remedy one particular skin care issue.
I purposely created our newest skin care kit to help the vast majority of people with the pesky, embarrassing, and emotionally & physically scarring problem known as acne. After months of research and development, I am proud to introduce Maine Laser Skin Care’s own Acne Control System!
So what is so special about this system? A dermatologist who I know personally developed this product combination, which was formulated based on the best clinical evidence available in the field of acne management.
Additionally, each of these products are medical grade. In other words, they are stronger in content than what can be bought over the counter in a pharmacy or drug store, and can only be sold in doctor’s offices (like ours) and medical spa settings.
If a person with severe cases of acne uses this system on a regular basis, they will see that:
- their enlarged pores will be minimized
- their whiteheads and blackheads will resolve significantly
- facial redness will be lessened
- their acne scars will be lightened
Overall, after six to eight weeks of use, a user’s skin appearance will be improved. Their skin texture will be smoother, and their skin tone will gradually even out.
The beauty of using a system like this is that the process of your daily skin care routine is easy to follow and to use. Each product within the system has a specific function in the battle against acne breakouts, as I will outline below:
1.) Salicylic Face And Body Wash– This product is a cleanser that combines 2% salicylic acid with a low pH and 1% extra virgin coconut oil. This balanced mixture unclogs pores by enhancing removal of dead skin cells and any dirt or makeup that may plug up your pores. The coconut oil portion balances moisture levels so your skin will appear more smooth and less irritated.
2.) Glycolic Gel– This gel specifically exfoliates deeper into the pores by using 10% glycolic acid. This product also includes peptides and marine extracts that provide moisture to the skin, while helping to improve elasticity and lessen redness of fresh acne scars.
3.) Green Tea Antioxidant Serum– The 5% green tea extract in this product results in a serum which decreases the inflammation caused by the acne breakout process. This process by itself helps to correct the hyperpigmentation, or darkness, caused by acne scarring, and decreases the redness of more recent acne activity. This serum also has hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, which again help to hydrate the skin and improve skin texture around acne breakouts.
4.) Acne Spot Treatment– This is an on-the-go treatment that you can carry in your pocket or purse. The solution consists of a mixture of 2% salicylic acid, witch hazel, and camphor, which acutely reduces swelling and redness of newly developed breakouts. A dab of this product on an inflammed area can quickly relieve swelling and inflammation within the skin, making it less likely that you will be tempted to pop or pick at a pimple. As a result, there is less risk of scarring. People who regularly use this product alone frequently tell us that a dab of Acne Spot Treatment on early breakouts at bedtime results in improved appearance of those areas overnight.
The Acne Control System is an excellent product combination to cleanse the skin, exfoliate the dead skin cells, and treat the inflammation. These are all important aspects of the complex clinical process that is acne.
The system is strong enough to treat stubborn acne that has not improved with over-the-counter products, and yet gentle enough to decrease the common complaint of excessive dryness and redness. Another nice feature of this kit is that if you run out of one item, you can buy the replacement of that individual item without having to buy the whole kit each time.
This Acne Control System is now available to purchase on our online shopping cart (which you can also access by clicking the picture above), and can also be ordered by phone or picked up at our Augusta office.
