BIRETIX® DUO GEL – New Generation Topical Treatment to Address All Stages of Acne

Our skin is covered in hair follicles. In a healthy hair follicle the sebaceous gland produces a small amount of sebum, which moves up to the surface of the skin where it acts as a waterproofing agent. The opening of the follicle is wide making it easy for the sebum to exit the follicle.

Acne are caused when the opening to the hair follicle is blocked, closing off oxygen and allowing the sebum to stagnate. This is the early stage of acne known as a comedone.

This environment allows rapid growth of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), the bacteria that leads to acne. At this point the hair follicle becomes inflamed and red and forms pus.

There are several factors than can contribute to cause of Acne:
– Hair follicles can become blocked by excessive sebum on the skin and an accumulation of dead skin cells
– Some cosmetic products can block hair follicles
– Hormones can cause an increased production of sebum and an accumulation of dead skin cells at the follicle opening.

In order to effectively fight acne, each stage of the acne development process needs to be tackled.

BiRetix Duo Gel is a clinically proven purifying exfoliating gel that visibly improves the appearance of acne. Containing the optimum balance of leading technologies, this product works to target every stage of the development of acne, clearing the skin of existing blemishes and helping to prevent further breakouts.

The unique combination of vitamin A ingredients work to clear pores and purify the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of comedones that can lead to the formation of spots. Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates, unclogging blocked pores, clarifying the skin and diminishing any redness. Meanwhile, the clinically proven, sophisticated botanical complex fight against 24 strains of P. Acnes – the bacteria that lead to spots – while causing no bacterial resistance, meaning this treatment can be used for prolonged periods of time.

This non-irritating, no-sensitizing gel is an effective treatment for all stages of acne.

A clinically proven, effective treatment for inflammatory acne
– Vitamin A works to clear pores
– Salicylic Acid unclogs pores and reduces redness
– Botanical actives fight against spot-causing bacteria
– Does not sensitize the skin or cause bacterial resistance

Apply an even layer to the affected areas after cleansing, once or twice daily. For best results, combine with the other products recommended by your Board-Certified Dermatologist.


AKNICARE™ CHEST AND BACK – Revolutionary Spray Treatment for Chest and Back Acne

We usually have treatments for facial pimples/acne, but we seldom have treatments for our chest and back acne. We don’t believe if you don’t see it, it doesn’t matter. Acne on the chest and back is very common. Men, and especially young adults won’t take their t-shirts off in public situations, or permanently wear vests, or women who refuse to wear low cut or even normal cut tops and wear stifling high necked one piece swimming costumes, just because they have disfiguring acne and blemishes on their chest and back.

Now, there is a new and convenient way to take care of our chest and back acne – Aknicare™ Chest and Back. It’s so easy to apply, just spray on the problem areas on your back and chest!

Aknicare™ Chest and Back is a unique combination of 3 key ingredients which target all the causes of back acne in a pump spray presentation. The 3 ingredients have been proven to reduce inflamed and non-inflamed spots and blackheads after weeks of use.

Aknicare™ Chest and Back works faster than conventional treatments such as antibiotics and doesn’t cause resistance

Aknicare™ Chest and Back works faster than benzoyl peroxide and doesn’t have the worrying side effects such as extreme drying of the skin and dark spots/hyperpigmentation.

Clinical studies published in the British Journal of Dermatology show less new spots emerged each week of use and old spots disappeared quickly. Oil production rates were reduced by up to 68% with an average of 53%.

The key ingredients of Triethyl citrate, Ethyl linoleate and GT peptide-10 work synergistically to transform acne skin to clear skin. These ingredients are supported by salicylic acid and calming ingredients along with products to maintain barrier function and to prevent skin drying.


PRODUCT FEATURE: MESOESTETIC™ ULTIMATE W+ WHITENING SPOT ERASER – Ultra-concentrated Whitening Treatment for Localized treatment of Dark Spots

Melanogenesis is the natural biochemical process responsible for production of the skin pigments that give the skin color and protect it from UV radiation. This process can be altered by different factors that trigger localized overproduction of melanin, causing unsightly blotches and uneven skin tone. The main cause of melanin overproduction is exposure to the sun. However, genetic factors, hormonal factors, skin aging, photosensitizing agents, etc. also play a role.

Often, the skin pigmentations that we have are so dark that ordinary lightening creams and lotions don’t improve them significantly. Mesoestetic™ Ultimate W+ Whitening Spot Eraser has ultra-concentrated whitening ingredients to improve even the most recalcitrant skin pigmentations.

Mesoestetic™ Ultimate W+ Whitening Spot Eraser has [Meso]white complex™, an exclusive combination of active ingredients with proven efficacy that inhibit melanin synthesis by disrupting various steps in its formation and transfer. It also has Garden cress, a powerful phytonutrient that inhibits tyrosinase and α-MSH, both involved in melanin synthesis processes. Attenuates the appearance of spots on skin and provides whitening benefits. Glycolic acid and Retinol also helps in its lightening property, with added anti-oxidant action to protect your skin and provide anti-aging benefits.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use light pressure to release the product, and apply once or twice daily, directly to the treatment zone, using gentle circular massaging movements until it is completely absorbed.
