Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated Acne Control Serum:

I have been using this product for about two years. I don't have chronic or cystic acne but when I do get the occasional breakout this works in a flash. I cleanse and apply under my moisturizer. In the morning there is significant reduction in the appearance of the acne. Once you get past the awful smell all is well. Results are worth it.

    I've been using this product for the last four years. It's saved my skin. It helped to clear up my acne when it was at it's worst. It also helped to fade all the discoloration and scarring I had from my past breakouts. It even helped clear up my boyfriend's cystic acne. It's honestly the best and I recommend it to everyone.

          This is amazing. Overnight my blemishes were down in size. It didn't get rid of everything but I can see that it's working. Now I have fewer blemishes. Pricey but well worth it.

            Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated Acne Control Serum:

            Although the product is SUPER expensive for my tiny budget I took the chance. I have been battling Cystic Adult Acne for many many years. I was almost giving up on ever finding a solution for myself. I was depressed because Im only 37 and felt hopeless because as a young woman I had flawless skin. I visited my local Ulta and Martin V., make up artist introduced me to it and swore by it. I was exteremely sceptical because of the price. 1 month and a half later my skin is almost perfect. It's smooth, it's taking away my scars and I feel confident enougj to b in public w/o makeup. Take the chance on this product. You WON'T b dissappointed. I just repurchased another tube. I LOVE IT & will continue to use it twice a day. GREAT thing is I didn't have to spend thousands on dermatologists appointments and medications. I've heard the horror stories. THANK YOU MARTIN V. ✋

                    Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated Acne Control Serum:

                    I was so hesitant to buy this product, given the price. But after reading through every single review on it, I decided to bite the bullet. Oh goodness. I am so, so, so glad that I did! I have been using this product for about two weeks now and I haven't had a single blemish. This has literally not happened to me since I was pregnant with my son seven years ago!! Seriously! Two weeks and I have not had a single pimple!!! !!!! !!!! I am so thankful I found this product and am planning to order a back-up supply very soon.

                    When I first started (for about a week or so), I used it twice a day. Once at night and once in the morning. I did not have a problem with over drying, though I do have oily skin and I used this in combination with my regular moisturizer. This product literally made a difference in the appearance of my existing blemishes the very first day I used it! They were visibly reduced in size, less red and inflamed. Wow. I mean, just wow. Now I only apply at night after cleansing. My face is so clear! Not a single pimple!!! I have admired myself in the mirror so much. No more concealer you guys!! Love it. Thank you DermaDoctor. This stuff is quite expensive, but I have to say that it will save me lots of money in other products, including make-up to cover pimples that I hope to never purchase again!!

                    • Q:

                      I have deep painful acne along my jawline, that regular spot treatments just aren't clearing up. I think it may be a hormone imbalance issue but I'm really not sure. Would this product be effective in treating that kind of adult acne or is it more for surface, minor acne? Thank you!

                        Dr. Kunin created the Ain't Misbehavin' Serum specifically to help treat adult acne because she was receiving so many questions from people about it. It will help to treat and prevent both hormonal adult acne as well as surface breakouts with continued use.
