Rx Systems PF® Launches Multi-Ingredient

Acne Control Kit/Clear Skin System

Dermatologist-formulated products utilize synergistic effect of three anti-acne ingredients

(St. Louis, MO – June 2, 2010) - Acne is recognized as a multi-factorial disease that requires clinical finesse and a multifaceted approach to therapy. Formulated and tested by a board-certified dermatologist, the new ACNE CONTROL KIT/CLEAR SKIN SYSTEM from Rx Systems PF® utilizes three scientifically advanced, acne-fighting ingredients synergistically combined to effectively reduce and prevent acne and acne rosacea.

“Most acne treatment programs contain a single active ingredient, such as benzoyl peroxide. It should be evident that using several active ingredients, which work together to address the various causes of acne, produce better and faster results,” said Dr. Lawrence Samuels, Rx Systems PF founder and Chief of Dermatology at St. Luke’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO. “Rx Systems PF has created a unique ACNE CONTROL KIT/CLEAR SKIN SYSTEM designed to control acne and acne rosacea by utilizing the synergistic effect of three anti-acne ingredients - salicylic acid, azelaic acid and elemental sulfur. These ingredients when used together address the multitude of factors that cause acne in all ages.”

Acne is a common skin disorder that affects at least 85 percent of adolescents and young adults to some degree. Research shows that a large number of women 25 years or older have acne that remains constant until age 44, at which time there is a decrease in the incidence of acne. Acne affects individuals of both genders and all ethnic groups. Acne rosacea is a type of acne that increases in incidence with age after 30 years old and is characterized by patches of reddened acne on the cheeks and central face.

“Our Acne Control Kit/Clear Skin System is scientifically formulated to prevent abnormal epidermal cell growth, normalize and enhance skin exfoliation at the opening of the pore, kill the bacteria in the pore, reduce inflammation, control excessive oil production and heal active lesions to prevent acne scarring,” according to Dr. Samuels.


· ACNE CONTROL CLEANSER contains the active ingredient salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is an organic, plant-derived ingredient. The cleanser causes skin cells to shed more rapidly preventing pores from clogging and allowing space for new cell growth to help reduce and prevent blackheads. The acne control cleanser is designed to cleanse, exfoliate and prepare the skin to make other anti-acne ingredients more effective.

· ACNE CONTROL LOTION contains azelaic acid. Azelaic acid is a natural, plant-derived prescription product used in the treatment of acne. In lower concentrations, it can be obtained without a prescription, and when combined with other anti-acne products, can eliminate acne and discoloration.

· ACNE SPOT TREATMENT contains micronized, elemental sulfur. The concentration of the elemental sulfur intensifies its antibacterial effect and its ability to eliminate active acne lesions without irritation to the skin.

It is recommended that individuals with mild to moderate acne use the Acne Control Cleanser up to twice a day, followed by the Acne Control Lotion applied to all acne-prone areas in the evening. The Acne Spot Treatment should be applied in the morning to active acne lesions as needed. The ACNE CONTROL KIT/CLEAR SKIN SYSTEM can be used with Rx Systems PF’s other skin care systems and facial treatments to address other skin problems.

“Patient expectations are a critical step when initiating therapy for acne or acne rosacea,” said Dr. Samuels. “Realistic expectations and timelines for improvement will encourage patients to use the products properly and consistently. Typically mild acne or acne rosacea will improve 30-50 percent in 12 weeks and 60 percent or better by 26 weeks. Moderate acne or acne rosacea will improve 20-40 percent in 12 weeks and 50 percent or better by 26 weeks. The treatment of acne vulgaris and acne rosacea are a long-term process that must be individualized for each patient, but initial treatment can begin with the Acne Control Kit/Clear Skin System.”
