If your doctor has you on oral antibiotics or hormonal therapy and you are not having side effects, I usually recommend that people stay on their medication until we have total control of the skin. Once your confidence elevates to a place it has never been prior, I’ll teach you how to safely wean off your pills. If done properly, there will be zero rebound breakout from the withdrawal of medications.

**Update** The Program is no longer expensive! See the “Acne Awareness Rebate”
This program is relatively costly for two real reasons:
#1 There is more involved in making these products. You don’t get great strength with minimal irritation from just mixing a couple of active ingredients together. Using real clinical testing, we have formulated a complex line of products that have multiple bacteria fighting, oil absorbing, and gentle exfoliating elements. These products have been proven through real clinical use to be tolerated by the most sensitive types of skin. Patients tell me everyday that these products “feel and work” better than anything they have tried prior.
#2 The second reason is because acne is so unbelievably difficult. With all the trial and error nonsense that goes on in this field, there needs to be a true, definitive practice available for those who are not succeeding elsewhere. I make myself available online to all who decide to trust my expertise. I would rather bring victory to thousands than blindly sell to millions. This program comes with my personal availability and support. There is no need for anxiety or concern when you have an proven expert only a click away.

With the roaring uprise of internet health sites, nutritional information, and self-help books, it’s easy to see why people are now attempting total self-reliance in the fight against all chronic conditions. Combine this trend with the tarnished reputation of western medicine and pharmaceutical sales tactics and it becomes obvious why people do not always look first to doctors anymore. Add in the fact that private insurance companies have made it impossible for your doctor to sit with you for more than 5 minutes, and the whole picture of total self-reliance becomes crystal clear.
Many aspects of this trend have been very beneficial. Without the safety net of an available, trustworthy doctor or affordable health insurance, many people have taken their own health into their hands by eating great and becoming ultra-fit. I’m an ever growing enthusiast and advocate of fitness training and am always looking for the next level of total body balance, power, and control. I understand the vital importance of physical self-reliance. However, not to minimize the benefit but rather to expand the conversation to the next level, I’d like to share with you a darker side of becoming totally self-reliant.
Allow me to demonstrate how someone can hurt themselves using logic while all alone:
Premise #1: With the aid of the internet, I now have all the information that any doctor has ever had access to. I can easily research all available treatments that have ever been used for acne. I also now have the power to research the biochemistry, mechanism of action, and side effects of all medications.
Premise #2: Acne that has not resolved after years of proper attempts with every prescription, non-prescription, nutritional, and holistic treatment available on the internet must be untreatable.
Premise #3: I still have active acne and am sure that I have properly tried everything this world has to offer.
Therefore: My acne must be untreatable.
Although there are many flaws in the premises of this logical argument, countless people have strongly held this false belief. (Premise #2 is the biggest mistaken thought)
The extreme of Doctoring oneself often leads to a “final” medical conclusion that is often times pessimistic and incorrect. There is no room for a second opinion when someone is consulting with themselves.
Every medical student is taught on their first day of medical school that they “should not act as their own doctor” Why do you think medical schools teach this important lesson? It’s not just for emergency situations. When it comes to frustrating chronic conditions, there is a lot of emotion involved. Hightened emotional states are known for clouding judgement. (Have you ever needed to rush to buy a car or get a new apartment without warning or preparation? There are risks to making decisions while emotional)
The same is true for chronic acne treatment. You get some new bumps, get upset, then make treatment decisions without consulting anyone who is unemotional about the situation. This cycle repeats itself over and over until the faulty conclusion of pessimism is reached.
I offer the Home Version here for people in and outside New York to fix their own persistent acne problem. Due to the inherit risk of self-doctoring while emotional, I have decided to make myself available to help with emotional support and detailed use of the system. Not surprisingly, many people will enter this program and choose not to use this email assistance.
Why would someone pay a significant amount of money, have difficulty, and then not ask for free, convenient assistance from the doctor who brought them the program???
The answer is because they have already made their “final medical conclusion” about both their own case and their new treatment. Pessimism and extended self-reliance are the real root cause of chronic failure in any challenging situation of life. (Painfully witnessing this phenomenon for years drove me to make this video gallery)
For anyone who still lives in a wary cloud of pessimism, try to embrace the simple yet effective logic of this argument:
Premise #1 Acne has been proven to be treatable.
(Every acne textbook around the world considers acne to be both treatable and preventable. Our video gallery clearly shows that even severe, stubborn cases are also treatable without oral medications)
Premise #2 You have acne.
Therefore: Your Acne is totally Treatable!!

While some of the major side effects of Oral Medications have been debated in the literature, there is no doubt that Oral Isotretinoin makes some people’s skin more sensitive for many years. This sensitivity can manifest in a dramatic fashion that sometimes rivals the stress of acne itself. Some people experience facial redness and flushing with the slightest sun exposure, spicy foods, mild nervousness, or facial cleansing.
The trickiest part of this new situation is that the oral medication doesn’t always take care of the prior oiliness and acne. With the new skin hypersensitivity, fighting off this continued oil becomes much more difficult because any facial product can trigger the redness and flushing. A patient is often left with a decision to either remain oily and full of bumps or clean and completely red and uncomfortable. Regardless of the amount of effort, it’s not an easy fix and patients often times begin to lose hope.
Over the past 5 years, this practice has mastered this less well-known condition and will soon be launching an Advanced Exfoliating Kit for Redness and Flushing. This comprehensive kit can resolve all issues of Redness, Flushing, Seborrheic Dermatitis, “Rosacea”, Post- Oral Isotretinoin Sensitivity, and Intolerant Skin. The video below is a case presentation of a young man who had relentlessly suffered from this uncomfortable condition for years: “Redness and Facial Flushing #1”

Since we launched our online practice earlier this summer, dozens of transformed people have emailed me stories of their newly found control after years of heartache and failure.
However, likely due to the rising exposure of the videos, only a few have been brave enough to send videos and photos of their experiences. This post is a reminder of a contest I promised everyone back in March.
The contest was for the best proven transformation using our Acne Bootcamp™ program. So far, the leading video is the “Home Version 2”
To all the wonderful people who have had success here, don’t hesitate to crop down your photos and enter them into this contest. At the end of this year, the winner will receive 500 dollars!!
Not to worry…, those who are just starting to clear up will also have an opportunity to enter next year’s contest…
To all my loyal online clients, I hope you have felt the passionate energy that has been put into this medical project. It has been a very rewarding experience to help those who had previously lost hope.
In a little over a month, I will be sending out free samples of our completely original exfoliating products to all of you who were trusting and brave enough to enter this journey with me.
