Uneven skin tone and acne are two stubborn skin concerns all by themselves. More commonly than not, however, these two will present at the same time, especially in higher Fitzpatrick skin types. This is a difficult situation for the clinician, as it is not easy to decide which condition to treat first. It can also be extremely frustrating for the patient.
Ingredient knowledge is key, especially when treating more than one condition simultaneously, and this is where our A&C Synergy Serum® takes the lead!
This product is a powerhouse of ingredients that provide multiple benefits for both uneven skin tone and acne:
Retinol and retinyl palmitate (vitamin A) are part of a retinol complex. This is the perfect form of retinol for those patients who may be too sensitive for a pure retinol or retinoic acid product. Vitamin A helps to increase cell turnover, evens skin tone, stimulates firming action and provide antioxidant protection.
Kojic acid is effective at clearing follicular debris and evening skin tone.
Lactic acid is a biocompatible alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin and evens skin tone. It is also a hydrating and purifying to the skin.
Licorice root extract not only suppresses sebum production, but it is also a calming and soothing ingredient that evens skin tone.
Of course, these aren’t all of the ingredients in this multi-faceted product, but they are just some that work double-time to keep your patients’ skin healthy and clear from both acne and uneven skin tone. Additionally, this is a great product to mix with our C-Strength 15% or 20% with 5% Vitamin E to boost both the skin brightening and antioxidant protection all patients need.
