Proactiv Plus Review

You have probably seen the infomercials on TV for Proactiv Plus.  This popular three step acne treatment was originally developed in 1995 by doctors Katie Rodan, MD and Kathy Fields, MD, two Stanford University educated dermatologists who maintain dermatology practices in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The original Proactiv Solution acne treatment was recently reformulated into a more effective acne treatment to get rid of pimples, and repackaged as Proactiv+, which works by going deep into the pores of the skin to kill the acne-forming bacteria to help you get rid of acne, and then it helps stop new or recurring blemishes from forming.  Proactiv+ is an advanced acne-treatment with added medicine, built-in hydration and a new, smart way to treat acne.  This all-new 3-Step acne treatment was completely reformulated from the ground up for the dual purpose –  helping you get rid of acne + a radiant complexion.

In this Proactiv Plus Review, you will learn what this popular acne treatment is, how this new improved version of Proactiv was reformulated from the original  Proactiv Solution acne treatment to more completely get rid of acne blemishes and how this popular acne treatment for over 10 years helps you get rid of acne and keeps it away.


What is the Proactiv Plus Acne Treatment System?

Guthy Renker Corporation The Proactiv Plus Acne Treatment consists of a three part system, which includes the following:

Step 1 – Skin Smoothing Exfoliator.  This medicated exfoliator is made with new smaller and finer tiny exfoliating beads to gently remove dirt, excess oil and dead skin cells to help keep pores from clogging and expose your radiant skin.  Many defoliators use alcohol, which can leave your skin feeling dry and tight.  The Skin Smoothing Exfoliator leaves your skin feeling hydrated and moisturized, the way healthy skin should look and feel.

Step 2 – Pore Targeting Treatment.  The repairing treatment is a creamy medicated lotion that goes deep into clogged pores to eliminate acne forming bacteria.  The Pore Targeting Treatment is left on the skin and is not washed off.

Step 3 – Complexion Perfecting Hydrator.  This final step in the Proactv+ Treatment is designed to hydrate, relieve and sooth irritated skin, remove post acne marks so no one will know you had acne blemished, and leaves your skin looking and feeling fresh and radiant.  The Complexion Perfecting Hydrator is left on the skin and is not washed off.


How Does Proactiv Plus Work?

Guthy Renker Corporation Many over-the-counter acne treatments are alcohol-based astringents, and are designed to  get rid of acne by removing surface oil and dirt only, but do not really go beneath the surface of the skin to remove trapped oil and dirt that are the causes of acne.  In fact, many of these products strip away vital oil from the surface of the skin, resulting in over-production of essential skin oil, which then results in oily skin or even more acne. The pimples you see today started as tiny microcomedones, or pre-pimples, deep inside your skin about three weeks before breaking out. Hundreds of tiny pre-pimples may be forming continuously in any of the thousands of pores on your face. Even when your skin looks clear, they may still be there—percolating invisibly under the skin’s surface.

To help you get and maintain clear skin, Proactiv® helps keep these pre-pimples from forming or emerging—and that’s what it means to treat chronic acne “proactively.” This home acne treatment is designed for mild to moderate acne.  Proactiv Plus is made from alcohol-free astringent, finely milled benzoyl peroxide and prescription grade medication.  These ingredients are designed to go deep below the skin to clear clogged pores and gently remove excess oil and dirt from the skin without causing irritation.  Dr. Fields recommends if your acne is severe or inflammatory and does not respond to Proactiv, you should see a dermatologist for a prescription acne treatment.



What Causes Acne?

Acne is complex condition of the skin that generally results in pimples and redness on the face, chest, back and upper arms.  Acne is generally the result of bacteria, oil or dirt that gets trapped under the skin and cloggs pores, or hormones that results in over-production of oils in the skin, which if not removed can clog pores.  Acne is caused by bacteria and over production of oil in the skin, genetics, hormones and even stress.

Who are Rodan and Fields

Proactiv Plus is an acne remedy formulated and created by Katie Rodan, MD and Kathy Fields, MD who are Stanford-educated dermatologists who currently have medical dermatology practices in San Francisco, and market their acne treatment under the name Rodan and Fields.  You can learn about Rodan and Fields here.  Several years ago I was actually a patient of Dr. Kathy Fields, who treated me when I had a bad skin reaction after being bitten by a spider.
