Treatment 2: Clarify: Therapeutic Salicylic Acid Mask for Papulopustular Rosacea

Treatment Protocol


1. Facial Wash – Cleanse the area of treatment thoroughly, remove with warm water and pat dry.


2. Nutrient Toner – Apply with a cotton pad to prep the skin. Allow the skin to dry. This product may sting or tingle on some  individuals. Asses sensitivity by asking the patient, “On a scale of one to ten, ten being extremely active, how do you rate this sensation?”


3. Clarify: Therapeutic Salicylic Acid Mask – Apply a thin layer to the area of treatment using gloved hands enough to cover the face. Use the scale of 1 to 10 to gauge sensitivity. Allow the mask to remain on the skin for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Remove completely with cotton pads  moistened with warm water.

4. Nutrient Toner – Apply with cotton pad to ensure all the mask is removed from the skin.


5. Customize the protocol with a combination of corrective daily care products to address your  patient’s concerns and skincare goals. A suggested combination to target acne conditions is to combine one to two pumps of Acne Gel and Dual Action Redness Relief and allow to dry.

Retinoid Booster (optional)

6. Advanced Treatment Booster – Dispense two pumps into gloved hands. Gently spread the product over the area of treatment, keeping application even and thin.

  • Use the scale of one to ten to gauge sensitivity. Most patients will not have any sensitivity to this product.
  • The maximum number of layers is one.

Hydrate and Protect

7. Clearskin and the appropriate PCA SKIN® broad spectrum SPF product – Complete the treatment with this combination to calm, hydrate and protect the skin from UVA and UVB exposure.

8. Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster – Finish with a liberal application to improve hydration and reduce the appearance of lip lines.

Note: Apply the appropriate PCA SKIN broad spectrum SPF product prior to applying Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster to protect the lips from UVA and UVB exposure.
