Not your average acne-fighting experience
Dermala’s acne treatments go more than skin-deep.
See, Dermala’s unique approach to fighting acne is all about achieving balance in your body’s ecosystem – the microbiome.
Your microbiome is the collection of bacteria in and on your body, most of which is good for you, protecting against germs, breaking down food to give you energy, making vitamins, and more.
Like any ecosystem, when one species grows too fast, it hurts the others. In the case of acne, C. acnes (the bacteria that causes pimples) becomes too strong and outgrows the good guys on your skin. And if you also have a microbiome imbalance in the gut (too much of the bad guys, not enough good ones), it can lead to inflammation throughout the body. Next thing you know, it’s hellooo acne.
And this connection even goes beyond the gut and skin to the brain. Scientists have found that an imbalance in your gut microbiome can make you moody and unhappy. How? The good bacteria in your gut make serotonin, the happiness hormone! Wild, right?
Imbalances in your skin microbiome cause acne bacteria to overgrow inside your pores and imbalances in your gut microbiome lead to inflammation
Acne treatments like benzoyl peroxide, retinoids, and antibiotics are all short-term fixes that don’t tackle the big picture acne problem
That’s why Dermala uses our patented topical SE Microbiome Complex® to rebalance your skin microbiome, and prebiotics and probiotics to rebalance your gut microbiome. This fights the causes and resolves the symptoms of acne, giving you clear skin that lasts
