Acne Proactiv Treatment – Solution for Getting Rid of Acne
The acne treatment system was developed by two female dermatologists. They called it Proactiv (sometimes referred to as Proactive) because it not only healed blemishes, but also was formulated to proactively prevent “zits” from forming.
Does Proactiv work? That depends on who you talk to. On several acne message boards, a large majority of those who have used or are using this three step acne treatment agree that the product achieves pretty much what it claims to do.
Some users get panicked when after 2 or 3 days their acne appears to get worse and stop using the product. However according to the Proactiv treatment protocol, this is normal and users should continue the treatment.
However consult a physician if you develop a rash, changes in skin tone (either lightening or darkening). Severe redness, burning, blistering, crusting or swelling can all be signs of a allergic reaction and may need immediate treatment.
People who have used the program successfully report that you should use the program for at least two months before you give up on it. Those new blemishes were probably getting ready to erupt anyway.
Some of the major complaints of dissatisfied users are: despite following the plan religiously for several months there is no improvement in the condition of the skin. If this happens to you the company gives refunds. Even people unhappy with the product do admit it isn’t difficult to get your refund.
Another thing users complain about is that the company automatically ships more product and bills your credit card, even though you only signed up for the trial package. A quick call to customer service clear up that problem.
Many customers think the product is overpriced and that the amount of product is too little in comparison to the price.
Others complain because it isn’t really available offline, but you can get it at CVS pharmacies and Target stores as well as a number of other places.
Some pediatricians and family doctors suggest Proactive to patients with mild to moderate acne. They do a follow up visit to see if the condition is improving or if a dermatologist consult is in order.
You may want to consult with your doctor before using this treatment, especially is you have sensitive or very dry skin. If your child gets acne at a fairly young age (under 13) it may be wise to consult his pediatrician before allowing him to use Proactive and monitor his use, especially in the beginning.
The three step program begins with the Renewing Cleanser, which exfoliates the dead skin and other impurities. Then the Revitalizing Toner is applied, this also removes dead skin, unplugs the pores and removes excess oil. Finally the Repairing Lotion is used to heal blemishes and blackheads and to help prevent flare-ups.
For complete instructions follow the directions exactly, until you see how your skin reacts. It can take two months to see a significant improvement however some people begin to notice the change in a matter of days.
Also keep in mind that initially you may see a worsening of your acne, but with most people that levels off in a couple of weeks.
Some users have found the toner excessively drying even with the use of a moisturizer, and skip this step. Others only use the repairing lotion once they have the acne under control.
You can get your acne under control with the use of Proactiv 3 step treatment.
I would strongly suggest you to try Proatciv Acne Treatment. There is absolutely nothing to loose!
