Post-Breakout Fading Gel

Post-Breakout Fading Gel is fast-acting, acne scar spot treatment to visibly lighten and fade red and dark scars left behind from cystic acne and blemishes.

Post-Breakout Fading Gel by Renée Rouleau uses a blend of gentle brighteners and exfoliating acids to lift discoloration and fade stubborn acne marks. Traditional blemishes usually last 5-7 days but the red, dark or purple scar leftover (made worse if you picked at it) can linger for weeks—or even months. You'll see a dramatically noticeable improvement in promoting even-toned skin with continued use. In our independent study, volunteers who tested this acne scar treatment found when they used Post-Breakout Fading Gel every day for 30 days, they got approximately a 50% quicker recovery than when using nothing at all. (When compared to blemishes that occurred at the same time, but were not treated with the product.) The result? Clearer and more even-toned by Renée Rouleau. Fading results will vary based on the severity of the blemish and intensity of picking. A blemish scar is caused by an injury to the skin so it does take a considerable amount of time to heal but this product will definitely encourage a quicker recovery.

  • How to Use
    • It's very important to only use this product on blemishes that are entirely healed (with no scab present). After performing your regular nighttime routine, take a damp tissue or cotton swab and wipe affected area clean before applying Post-Breakout Fading Gel. Apply one drop to dark mark and leave on overnight. Use nightly until desired results are achieved. Results will vary based on severity of the blemish and the intensity of picking. If you're using other exfoliating products, it's best to avoid the area being treated so as not to cause irritation.
