Women who continue to experience acne breakouts well into their 30s and forties should know they are not alone. While an estimated 85% of adolescents aged 15 to 17 years have acne, there are countless studies that show that a lot of women continue to have significant breakouts well into their 40s. And where so many other products fail, Metamorphosis was formulated to transform your skin to clear your acne and prevent new breakouts.
Adult hormonal acne often does not respond to benzoyl peroxide treatments and needs a different approach. For the sake of simplicity you should know that the path to a breakout is well known and really involves 4 steps:
- Comedogenesis- Simple term a plugged follicle
- Increased Oil (Sebum) production
- Increased bacteria (the main one being P. acnes)
Once this path happens, the follicle ruptures and extends causing papules, pustules, nodules, white heads, and blackheads. And if you have skin of color, the unfortunate hyperpigmentation (brown spot) that is often bigger and lasts longer than the acne itself.
The wonderful thing about Metamorphosis is that it not only works at every step in the acne pathway, but also helps remove the hyperpigmentation and prevent further breakouts.
So how does it work?
Simply by targeting each step in the acne pathway:
Preventing Plugged Follicles- Metamorphosis is very unique in combining Slow Release Alpha, Beta and Poly hydroxy acids in the Softening Serum. The formulation was specifically formulated so you can leave it on all night so that it would be as effective as possible. But Metamorphosis goes even further by placing Retinol in Enlightening Lotion. The result is a very effective but gentle turnover of old skin that prevents plugged follicles.
The main ingredients shown to work topically to Reduce Oil Production are Alpha acids, Salicyclic Acid, and retinols. You should know that Softening Serum and Enlightening Lotion have all of these ingredients in the most effective concentrations available for daily use as well as Flavosterone, which has also been shown to reduce sebum production. And again, unlike most other products, you leave Metamorphosis on after application with no need to wash off or neutralize. As a result, the products are safe, easy to use, and most importantly, actually have the time they need to work.
Anti- Bacterial- Unlike most products that rely only on Benzoyl peroxide which can irritate your skin and stain your clothes and bed sheets, Metamorphosis’ antibacterial activity is the result of its unique combination of Hexylresorcinol, Niacinamide, Azelaic Acid, and Salicylic Acid. The result is a one of a kind formulation that works where other systems fail.
Inflammation-And finally, one of the exceptional elements of the Metamorphosis process is the potent blend of anti-inflammatories and barrier protectants that are ultimately so important in repairing the skin barrier and in preventing acne. Amongst these are scientifically proven concentrations of Niacinamide, Symcalmin, Feverfew, Bisabolol, and Willowherb.
Metamorphosis was formulated to transform your skin so that you can have fewer acne breakouts, while you clear your skin of hyperpigmentation and improve the signs of aging . And you can read more about our innovative new approach to skin care here.
