“However, while over-the-counter products claim to provide the answer to adult acne, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that some of their ingredients, like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, can cause allergic reactions. To prevent adverse reactions, the FDA advises that people apply a small amount to the affected area first for at least 3 days. If no adverse effects are present, they can apply the suggested amount.
That said, the smarter approach is to head to an established acne and skin care clinic in Folsom, CA for treatment. Here, estheticians formulate a skin care regimen that’s customized to the clients’ skin type and needs. A specific type of facial may be recommended as well. For instance, an acne peel is specially formulated with alpha and beta hydroxyl acids that treat and heal acne lesions.”
