Acne Trio Gel Rx
Acne Trio Gel Rx
This prescription medication is used in the treatment of both comedonal and inflammatory acne. This powerful anti-acne agent is commonly used by acne sufferers in their early teens.
How It Works: This product is an elegant and powerful combination of prescription-strength Adapalene (a retinoid), with Benzoyl Peroxide and Clindamycin. By incorporating these ingredients together, the anti-acne effects are multiplied in a way that using the ingredients separately cannot attain.
How To Use: This Acne Gel prescription product is used at night, and, as with all retinoids, may take a few weeks of gradual ramp-up in use, before skin adjusts, to use every night. Dr. Kenner recommends using 1-2 nights a week initially, gradually increasing the frequency of use until the skin tolerates the product every night. Be sure to wear sunblock in the AM, and be aware the benzoyl peroxide ingredient can sometimes bleach clothing or linens. Dr. Kenner encourages her clients to use any retinoid to avoid getting the product too close to the corners of the mouth, nose, and eyes and to use just a small amount. Use moisturizers like Cerave or even Vaseline to help with dryness that might happen early on.
Use With: Used along with Triple Acne Wash RX, users can often stave off more severe acne.
