Recent developments in the treatment of acne-prone skin have included the use of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids. DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Acne Treatment Products are among the leaders in this approach to acne therapy. Developed in close cooperation with dermatologists, they include the most innovative and effective formulations based on the most recent scientific investigation on methods to prevent and treat existing acne conditions. The therapies offered by DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Acne Treatment Products also include improvement of the healing and appearance of skin tissues.
There is sometimes an over-emphasis in acne treatment systems on treating “the acne” instead of treating the skin. DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Acne Treatment Products approach the reality of acne-prone skin as an entire complex of breaking the cycle of acne breakouts and improving the condition of the skin. These treatments use only the highest pharmaceutical grade ingredients, carefully formulated into the most effective products possible. The treatments are then clinically tested. The goal is to provide the most powerful and effective treatments for acne conditions, and to provide the user with clear options.

Additional DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Products Information
Living with acne-prone skin can be difficult and frustrating, so it is the goal of DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Acne Treatment Products to provide the most effective therapies to improve both the condition and the skin tissues. To that end, Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories (DCL), founded in 1980, develops skin care products which treat both the condition and the skin. Using advanced research, pure pharmaceutical grade ingredients, state-of-the-art FDA/OTC registered manufactured facilities and clinical testing, they offer the most effective therapies possible.
Focusing on specific locations of acne blemishes, DCL Spot Therapy uses a concentrated dose of 2% salicylic acid to improve their condition and appearance. One of the beta hydroxyl acids, salicylic acid acts as an anti-inflammatory by suppressing the expression of the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX) which causes the reddening and swelling associated with acne breakouts. In addition, salicylic acid is antiseptic, antibacterial, encourages the shedding of dead skin cells and increases the diameter of pores. Taken together, these effects help to unclog pores and make room for new cell growth. This not only helps improve the conditions under which acne naturally occurs, but helps the skin to renew and heal itself. Skin does not live by salicylic acid alone, however: The formula of this therapy also includes a range of botanical extracts and oils to help soothe the skin, further reduce inflammation and provide emollients to replace the oils and moisture necessarily lost by treatment. Clinical trials have shown marked improvement in the appearance of skin after consistent use of this product.
