Dr Alek Nikolic’s Blemish & Age Serum Facts:

  1. It contains a one-of-a-kind technology which targets both acne and aging skin
  2. The Blemish + Age Defense regimen is the “go-to solution” for acne and aging and is a must have product


Adult acne is more common than you think and it affects almost 25% of all adults worldwide. The problem that is often experienced by adults suffering from acne are:

  1. Inflammatory lesions
  2. Acne scarring
  3. Post inflammatory skin changes such as hyperpigmentation
  4. Blemishes and skin imperfections

[quote author=”Dr Alek Nikolic”]“48% of European women ages 30-49 suffer from breakouts.  Imperfections may appear as inflammatory blemishes—red, inflamed papules and pustules—or as non-inflammatory blemishes, which are commonly referred to as whiteheads and blackheads.”[/quote]

Adults who battle skin imperfections have a unique set of aging concerns:

  • As oil glands enlarge with age pores increase in size
  • The skin’s texture becomes rough
  • Post-breakout hyperpigmentation can linger long after blemishes subside
