Absorption describes how well a substance penetrates your skin. Here we measure absorption in terms of its rate of penetration into your skin. How fast did it absorb? Some products don't absorb well, and instead "sit" on top of skin forming a film, which can range from light to heavy. If you still have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, the rate would be considered Very Slow.

This medicated therapeutic serum disrupts acne formation by exfoliating pore plugging debris. It is enhanced by botanicals thought to curb bacterial proliferation, calm irritation and
hormonal influences. See More Details
DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' medicated acne control serum helps address all the factors that contribute to the formation of acne.
Birth of a Blemish
Keratinization (sticky cells). Acne is a disorder of keratinization, in which the surface of the cells lining the sebaceous gland is sticky, resulting in them clumping together beneath
the surface of the skin rather than being eliminated through daily natural exfoliation. As the plug deep within the pore enlarges and it reaches the surface of the skin, contact with air leads
to oxidation - the end result is a visible blackhead.
Hormonal Triggering of Oil Production. In the meantime, the sebaceous glands have triggered DHT, the active metabolite of the hormone testosterone (and in women as progesterone), and
continue to make lots of oil.
Bacteria. Proprionobacterium acnes (P. acnes), the bacteria that live within the sebaceous glands, thrive in this environment. Lack of air and lots of sebum (oil) nourishes the
bacteria, allowing them to flourish.
Inflammation. P. acnes produce a chemical which triggers white blood cells to swarm into the area. Inflammation occurs. The result - white heads and small red acne papules.
Ultimately, a combination of persistent plugging, excessive oil build-up (envision an expanding water balloon) and inflammation produced by bacterial over growth cause the gland to
rupture. On the surface, this manifests itself as an inflamed acne papule or cyst.
Intervening at several points along this pathway speeds up acne clearing and maximizes overall results.
Ain¿t Misbehavin¿ medicated acne control serum contains:
2% Salicylic Acid - Chemical exfoliant and highest level of Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) FDA approved to treat acne
Tea Tree Oil -Natural astringent agent with potential antibacterial properties
For external use only. Avoid eyes. If irritation occurs, wash product off, discontinue use and consult a physician. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately
following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF
30 to prevent any increase in sun sensitivity.
