The ultimate acne treatment. Benzoyl Peroxide is one of the most effective treatments for acne. While highly effective, traditional forms of Benzoyl Peroxide can cause skin irritation. Our Acne Gel is formulated with a patented, aqueous-based, micronized BPO to penetrate the pores and attack the P. acnes bacteria.
Skin Type: Recommended for Acne-prone skin.
Ideal for: More severe acne on the face, back, and chest.
Two things happen with Benzoyl Peroxide: it peels the inside of the pores and kills acne bacteria. As acne bacteria cannot live with oxygen, the benzoyl part of the molecule pulls the peroxide down into the pore, where the peroxide releases oxygen and kills the bacteria. Furthermore, BP suppresses the fatty acids in sebum (oil), making it harder for dead skin cells to stick together. Keep in mind that acne is simply an accumulation of dead skin cells and oil. Using Acne Gel at the beginning of your treatment is crucial. It is safe to discontinue use after four to six months if there are no acne breakouts.
Always apply all over, no spot treating.
Benzoyl Peroxide (Acne Gel) Acclimation Guide
You may want to follow this accumulation routine for the first two weeks if you have never used benzoyl peroxide or only used it as a spot treatment. You'll apply Acne Gel every evening for a prescribed amount of time, then wash it off and apply moisturizer.
After you wash your face with Pro B5 Wash, pump 1-2 pumps of Acne Gel into your palms and apply it all over your face avoiding the neck and eye areas. Leave it on for the prescribed amount of time, then wash it off using Pro B5 Wash, and apply HylaVera or NourishRX.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
The pimples you see on your skin now started forming 90 days ago, so it is very important to never skip using the serum even if you are not seeing results. It can be tempting to use more increase the use of the serum to try and get quicker results, but this does not work and can actually push the clearing process back by impairing the skin's barrier. If you follow our product protocol, you should see less inflammation, oil, and redness in just two weeks.
