In our clinic we get asked about skin purging and if our products will give people more acne. The answer to this is two fold. First off, some people especially if they have non inflamed acne purging will most likely happen when the correct products are being used to soften the skin and allow clogged pores to open up and debris underneath to come to the surface. The little-known fact here is that acne can start deep beneath the skin and take 3 to 4 months to make it’s way to the surface. This process and our products target acne deep under the skin where it waits to be released in varying stages of severity. But with the right products all the acne will come out of the skin.
Acne grows under the skin for 3 to 4 months before it hits the surface. Then once your acne is at the surface the pore can be cleaned out and the right products can penetrate into that cleaned out pore and keep it clear of acne. Clearing acne 100% can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Products like an acne safe benzoyl peroxide, serums and other products help with softening that top layer of skin so that the acne in different stages underneath can finally come out and the pore will not get clogged up again.
By seeing an acne professional regularly we can work with you to get your skin clear and free of acne. There’s no more second-guessing yourself, wondering if what you’re using is causing a breakout. clock is ticking, my friend. It may seem like a lot at first, and three to four months may seem like a long time, but in the grand scheme of things, this timeline is perfect to ensure you get the clear skin you need. With how long most people deal with having acne, you’d be surprised at how short 3 months feels once you start seeing results. Real, beautiful results.
