How It Works
Dr. Rivers' Comprehensive Acne Treatment was developed after countless patient inquiries for an effective, topical acne solution without the side-effects common with other treatments.
The two-chambered treatment includes:
A patented base formulation
An acidifying solution with .6% salicylic acid
When these two combine, they change the condition of the epidermal environment.
The resulting site is inhospitable to the acne-causing bacteria, p. acnes.

How To Use
Clean the skin thoroughly • For new users: Apply to a small area once daily for 3 days to test for sensitivity. If no discomfort occurs, thoroughly mix two pumps into the palm of a clean hand and cover the affected area 1-3 times daily. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
External use only. • Irritation and dryness are more likely if you use another topical acne product at the same time. If irritation occurs, use only one product. • Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. • Keep out of reach of children. • If swallowed, or if you develop hives, swelling of eyes or mouth, blistering, or difficulty breathing get medical help or contact a poison control center right away.
Apply 4-5 pumps of product twice per week on freshly cleansed skin. Areas to apply include the face, neck, chest and the back of hands. Remove after 20 minutes with a warm, soft cloth. Cleanse the skin once again to remove all residue. Follow with your choice of Riversol serum and moisturizer.
As with all AHA products, it is recommended that prior to sun exposure users cover areas where AHAs have been applied with sunscreen.
Dr. Rivers answers the most frequently asked questions about the Comprehensive Acne Treatment.
Will it work on cystic acne?
Cystic acne can be very complex and generally requires oral treatment: antibiotics or isotretinoin. If the cystic acne is caused by hormonal factors, the birth control pill, or spironolactone are commonly used options.
Which products can I use with it?
We would suggest using the product after cleansing, and before a moisturizer. The selection of each would vary depending on skin type. A 4% Glycolic Peel and sunscreen would be excellent additions to any acne routine.
Why 0.6% salicylic acid?
This amount is required to acidify the base formulation and help clear some acne pimples in the process with mild exfoliation. 0.6% salicylic won't be overly drying on the skin, which is beneficial for acne patients. Salicylic acid is keratolytic. It helps open the acne pores, which can help to control breakouts. However, too much can irritate and peel the skin excessively.
Is it just for adult acne or good for teens as well?
This acne treatment is suitable for anyone with mild/moderate inflammatory acne.
Is this product pregnancy safe?
Will this work with "maskne" caused by wearing a face mask constantly?
Yes, it will help with acne mechanica, aka "maskne". This type of acne is generally caused by pore occlusion and irritation of the skin from physical pressure. Anyone experiencing "maskne" or acne mechanica should cleanse the skin well and use a moisturizer before masking (20 minutes before). These steps will help reduce the acne-inducing irritation that masks can cause.
Will this help control my acne rosacea?
The combined formulations in this product can cause short and mild vasodilation. Theoretically, this can exacerbate rosacea symptoms. We don't recommend the Riversol acne treatment for acne rosacea at this time.
Will this dry out my skin?
It shouldn't. The salicylic acid content at 0.6% is a safe concentration for skin prone to dryness. Additionally, the patented base formulation contains hydrating ingredients.
Where does it go in your routine? (e.g. If I'm already using multiple steps: a cleanser, serum, eye repair, corrector, etc.)
We would suggest: if you're using a serum, we would suggest to use the acne treatment right after the serum. If your primary skin concern is acne, skip the serum and use the treatment right after cleansing.
