Re: how long should it take to see results on proactiv

i didn't start seeing results until about 8 weeks into using the proactiv and my face was totally clear after about, mmmm..., i think 3 1/2 or 4 months. yeah, i started using proactiv (the whole system plus the sulfur mask) right as my sophomore year of high school was ending. by the time my junior year started i just had a few of the little red marks left.

hope this helps

**obviously the proactiv didn't continue to work for me...or i wouldn't be at this forum, but good luck

Re: how long should it take to see results on proactiv

Hi. It took about 6 weeks for it to work for me. It wasn't working at all and just as I was going to give up on it it started working alot. I read somewhere that you can wear the mask over the repairing lotion overnight. Once I started doing this it worked great. It continued to work for about a year. Now I just use the cleanser and the toner to remove my makeup along with some meds from my doctor.

I saw a difference in the first week or so. Major improvement by week 6. I used the mask every other night and it works great. I haven't been this clear in a long time. Good luck, hope it works for you too!
