Reduce Acne with Acne Clarifying Treatment

SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment is a Salicylic Acid and Niacinamide treatment to fight acne, and reduce post-acne marks and pigmentation for healthier-looking skin.

This Acne Clarifying Treatment slowly releases 2% encapsulated salicylic acid over time and helps fade acne and post-acne marks without drying out the skin. It restores the skin barrier with 2% Niacinamide and a Sebum Balance Complex, made with Bakuchiol and three botanical oils that help to balance oil production.

SkinMedica’s clinical studies show that this Acne Treatment is clinically proven to reduce acne, visible redness, and oiliness for all skin tones and types in just 24 hours, and it can visibly fade post-acne marks (PIH/PIE) as early as 48 hours after beginning use.

Acne Clarifying Treatment Features and Benefits:

  • Reduces acne blemishes
  • Reduces visible redness and oiliness
  • Visibly fade post-acne marks (PIH)
  • Helps reinforce the skin barrier
  • Fragrance-free and alcohol-free

Featured Ingredients:

  • New proprietary Sebum Balance Complex with Bakuchiol – Balances sebum, supports skin health and clarity and reduces the appearance of pores.
  • Encapsulated 2% Salicylic Acid – Releases over time to treat and prevent breakouts without drying out skin.
  • 2% Niacinamide – Soothes skin and visible redness and supports a healthy, strong skin barrier.


Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Acne Clarifying Treatment work?
SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment is formulated with advanced acne-fighting ingredients such as Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, and Bakuchiol. These ingredients work synergistically to penetrate pores, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, and prevent future breakouts. The result is clearer, smoother skin with reduced blemishes and redness.

How often should I apply this SkinMedica acne treatment?
For best results, apply SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment once daily, preferably in the evening. Start with a thin layer and gradually increase the frequency if your skin tolerates it well. Skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time.

Can Acne Clarifying Treatment be used as a spot treatment?
Yes, SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment can be used as a spot treatment for individual blemishes. Simply apply a small amount directly onto the affected area and allow it to absorb into the skin. For best results, use it consistently as part of your overall acne treatment regimen to prevent new breakouts from forming.

Will this acne treatment cause dryness or peeling?
As with any acne treatment, some individuals may experience mild dryness or peeling, especially during the initial stages of use. However, SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment is formulated to minimize these side effects by including moisturizing and soothing ingredients in its formula. If dryness or irritation occurs, reduce the frequency of application and be sure to moisturize regularly.

Can Acne Clarifying Treatment be used in combination with other skincare products?
Yes, this acne treatment can be used in combination with other skincare products, including those from the SkinMedica Pore Purifying Gel  Cleanser. However, it’s important to avoid using other acne treatments containing similar ingredients at the same time to prevent over-drying or irritation. Always patch-test new products and consult with a skincare professional for personalized recommendations.

Try SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment today and see how much clearer your skin can be!

Cleanse your skin thoroughly before applying SkinMedica Acne Clarifying Treatment.

Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to two times daily.

Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.

If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Sensitivity Test for a New User. Apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first 3 days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated above.
