This product is used in the treatment of acne, and acne/rosacea overlap.
The Acne Gel DT product is a highly sophisticated cutting-edge acne formula, proudly made available by SkinHappy. By incorporating the powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient Dapsone, which strikes at the root of preventing scarring, with Tretinoin and Niacinamide, to treat and manage any scarring or pigmentation that does get through, this dynamic cream treats all forms of acne, from blackheads to inflammatory bumps.
Used in combination with Triple Wash or other acne cleansers, as well as other anti-inflammatory prescription acne or combination acne-rosacea medications like Anti-Inflammatory Cream or Rosacea Combo, this product is a mainstay for acne control, and is an important tool in Dr. Kenner's tool chest. As she tells all of her acne clients, acne is best brought into control by "treating it with multiple hammers at once" to get it to behave. The Acne Gel DT is one of these powerful "hammers" and is often used in acne that is most common on the upper part of the face, or acne that comes on explosively in the early or mid-teen years.
As with all products containing retinoids, the skin may take several weeks to adjust before it can tolerate daily use; use this product at night, and in the morning be sure to use sunblock. Cerave or Vaseline may be used to treat dryness and make sure not to get product too close to corners of the eyes, nose, and mouth.
