Studies have shown that fordyce spots are a unique skin condition where the body misplaces a certain type of gland in our skin. Our skin has two types of glands sweat glands and oil glands (sebaceous glands). For these glands to do their job, they have to be able to release their fluids onto the surface of the skin. But imagine what would happen if the body somehow mistakenly placed an oil gland under the skin without leaving an open pore to the surface? The oil gland would produce its oil and this oil would get trapped under the surface. If enough oil was produced by this trapped gland the little blob of trapped oil would create a visible bump on the skin surface. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT A FORDYCE SPOT IS – A SAC OF TRAPPED OIL PRODUCED BY A MISPLACED SEBUM GLAND (OIL GLAND). This also explains why no home remedy or anti-sebum product works on getting rid of fordyce spots. Most products try to simply get rid of Fordyce spots by getting rid of skin oils on the surface, whereas the actual oil that needs to be dispersed is below the surface. And when a remedy does manage to penetrate the skin surface, it is usually so harsh that it ends up causing deep tissue damage and leaves the treated area either scarred or discolored. Fordyce Gel is the first therapy that uses a combination of two advanced compounds (retinoic acid and Poly Hydroxy Acids) to first safely penetrate the epidermis, then disperse the trapped oil under the fordyce spot. It even goes on to safely diminish the size of the actual misplaced sebaceous gland under the fordyce spots so that when you stop the therapy, your fordyce spots don’t come back. As you use the therapy, you’ll notice that your fordyce spots will get flatter and your skin smoother to the point where they will be completely invisible to the naked eye. You will be left with perfectly healthy looking skin that is bump-free.
