Not your average
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.
The Gut-Skin Connection
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
But wait, there's more...

- Our algorithm customizes your next round of treatment based on your actual results
- Your optimized #FOBO Kit arrives every month
- And voilà! You’re living your best skin
Why it Matters
Much to the annoyance of many skincare scientists, everyone is different. Our genes, our microbiomes, our diets, our environments – all unique. Understanding that interplay is really hard, which is why old acne treatments focused on the symptoms, not the causes.
To actually help with acne, you have to collect and crunch a lot of data. To which all previous skincare scientists said, “Nah.” But we’ve got your back. We love big data!
With Dermala’s resident data nerds, you get a personalized acne treatment that’s actually tailored to you.
