There are two types of treatments for acne, reducing the occurrence and appearance of acne, and addressing scarring left from previous acne. Dr Perricone’s acne scarring remedy is the use of alpha liopic acid (ALA), which is featured in several products.
Research shows that when using ALA in treating atrophic acne scars, or scars that take the form of sunken recess, patients saw an 80% reduction in the depth of scars after a year of treatment. Anyone living with severe scars likes this knows how hard they are to hide and treat. ALA can treat severe to mild acne scars (and wrinkles!) by activating collagen-digesting enzymes, which work to break down damaged collagen.
There are over a dozen Perricone MD products featuring ALA, but Formula 15 is highly effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles. Featuring higher concentrations of ALA and DMAE, this treatment corrects the skin’s surface imperfections for smoother, radiant, and more youthful skin tone. This patented science provides potent treatment that will reduce the length, width and depth of wrinkles and acne scars. It will also firm and tighten your skin. An NTP complex delivery system ensures optimal results by driving the actives deep within the skin.

Another Perricone MD product I love!
Quick Take: serum – absorbs quickly
I love how this product smells…minty and refreshing. I followed the instructions on placing it on my face, jawline and behind the ears…and I love the results I’m seeing. My skin feels smoother, more tone, and my friends argue that I had a skincare injection of some type! I just keep pointing at the bottle!
OMG formula 15 changed my skin
Quick Take: smoothing and firming
I have been using the face activator prior to this product for the 3-4 weeks and I have seen a huge difference on my skin. I use to have pock marks from my acne days and I have seen a smoothness to my skin that I have NOT seen since my teen age years. I am now in my mid 40′s and my friends are asking me if I have done anything to my skin and I answer “YES” the NEW formula 15 serum from Dr. Perricone MD. I love this product!
