Skin Deep: Proactiv Launches NEW ProactivMD System

We’ve all seen the commercials with the amazing before and after results using Proactiv. Because of those ads, most of us, yours truly included, couldn’t wait to get our hands on this breakthrough acne treatment regime. Well, Proactiv is blowing us away again with the introduction of their brand new acne-fighting ProactivMD System. This new acne treating system contains Adapalene, the first prescription-strength retinoid that is FDA approved to treat acne without a prescription.

Adapalene is the first new acne-fighting ingredient to be introduced to the over the counter market in over 30 years. Proactiv’s NEW ProactivMD is a next-generation 3-step acne treatment system which consists of four products, a Deep Cleansing Face Wash, Balancing Toner, Daily Oil Control for morning use only, and Adapalene Gel 0.1% for nighttime use only. ProactivMD’s Adapalene works at the cellular level to help clear acne where it starts and prevent future breakouts from forming…. beneath the skin. As it clears up your blemishes, it also helps restore your skin’s tone and texture, unblocks and shrinks clogged pores, and reduces acne redness and inflammation.

  • Step 1: Deep Cleansing Face Wash: gentle daily cleanser, developed for acne-prone skin, combines glycolic acid and smooth exfoliating beads to clear dirt and debris from pores and gently resurface skin for a smoother, softer looking complexion.
  • Step 2: Cleansing Balancing Toner: an alcohol-free toner helps balance skin’s pH levels and removes impurities lodged deep within pores. This toner is alcohol-free and contains a light astringent to sweep away impurities leaving skin feeling fresh, revitalized and balanced.
  • Step 3 (Morning): Daily Oil Control SPF 30: a lightweight, 3-in-1 moisturizer helps hydrate skin, control shine and protect from harmful UVA/UVB rays. The gentle formula absorbs quickly, is non-comedogenic and free of oil and fragrance. Apply liberally to face and neck each morning at least 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.
  • Step 3 (Night): Adapalene Gel 0.1%: A topical retinoid medication is used to battle acne and treat blemishes. Adapalene helps speed acne healing, prevents new acne from forming, and reduces redness and inflammation while restoring an even skin tone and texture.

“I see patients every day with low self-esteem and poor self-confidence due to their acne. The new ProactivMD system offers an easy-to-use solution with Adapalene that is scientifically proven to reduce acne. I am excited that my patients now have easy access to an affordable system that I know from first-hand experience will help their acne and make them look and feel great!” said Proactiv dermatologist partner Dr. Ted Lain.
