Unseen Acne Exposed

Acne:

We all know the side of acne you can
see. But the Neutrogena® Clinical Skin
Imager has revealed another side of
the story: the acne-causing factors
you can't see.

Unseen Acne is forming below your skin's surface weeks before it appears.

Drag to see both sides of acne.

Seen Acne

For every blemish you see,
there are more forming
beneath your skin.

Even when skin appears
clear, a breakout may be
lurking beneath.

Unseen Acne

Breakouts form beneath the
skin's surface — weeks before
they appear.

Fighting acne on the surface
is only fighting half the battle.

The Neutrogena Clinical Skin
Imager reveals acne-causing factors
invisible to the naked eye.


How to Fight Seen and Unseen Acne

Combat 100% of the acne you see — and 100% of the acne you never saw coming.

Fight 2x a Day — Every Day

Defeat both sides of breakouts with the right
acne products, and a daily routine.

  • Treat Acne Morning & Night

    Using powerful acne cleansers twice a day will
    help keep Unseen Acne from emerging.

  • Repeat the Routine

    If you're only treating acne when you see it, you're
    only fighting half the battle. Keep up with your
    acne regimen, even when your skin looks clear.

Use a Powerful Solution

Arm yourself with scientifically-proven ingredients like
Neutrogena® MicroClear® technology.

  • Fight Below The Skin's Surface

    Revolutionary MicroClear® technology
    pushes medicine deep into pores to fight both
    the acne you see, and the acne that's forming below the surface.

  • Fight with Strength

    Only Neutrogena® has MicroClear®, which boosts
    the delivery of salicylic acid to the source of
    breakouts with powerful oil-dissolving agents.

Dermatologists Talk about Unseen Acne

Even if your skin looks clear, there could be acne forming
underneath your skin that you'll see down the road. Since
you can't see this acne with the naked eye, we call it Unseen
Acne. Once you understand this, you can go from spot
treating breakouts to pre-treating your entire face. It's about
breaking a cycle and establishing clearer, healthier skin.
