Clean clear skin is just a swipe away!
Acne is a sore spot for many of our patients, from pre-teens to women going through menopause. Breakouts can cause physical discomfort, tenderness, and swelling, all in addition to the psychosocial havoc they can wreak. Treating acne can be frustrating and time consuming because topical treatment results are based on regular use over six to eight weeks of use. One of the biggest hurdles we face is getting clients to be compliant with treatment, and using the BMD Daily Acne pads is one way we’ve found success. As the name suggests, these pre-soaked pads are designed to be used once a day, and can be worked into any portion of the patient’s skin care regiment. They travel well and can be used on the face, neck, shoulder and back, depending on where the breakouts occur. A combination of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids help destroy acne-causing bacteria and accelerate skin cell turnover to reduce the clogged pores, white heads, black heads, and inflammatory cysts.

- Gentle on skin
- Reduces the irritation from breakouts

A natural derivative of sugarcane, glycolic acid is a colorless, odorless alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) that is a very common topical exfoliant used in endless skin care products. It is considered a mild acid, and due to its structure is stable at room temperature in liquid form. You find it commonly in lotions and potions designed to fight acne breakouts because it serves to kill the acne-causing bacteria p. acnes and causes the lipids that bind dead skin cells together to disintegrate in a process called desquamation. This results in the loosening and removal of the uppermost layer of skin cells which can aggregate and cause clogged pores. Want even better news? It’s pregnancy safe. In addition to glycolic acid, these pads have both lactic (another mild AHA) and salicylic acid - an oil soluble molecule that can penetrate deep into oil glands and dissolve the buildup of sebum that accumulated there. This triple-threat of ingredients is sure to regulate oily and acne-prone skin.
