Hello and welcome!
My name is Alissa Chasen, and I am the co-creator of POREspective® Acne Solutions. As a practicing esthetician for 8 years with dermatology pharmaceutical training, I have recently retired from the treatment room. My waiting list for seeing new clients (virtually and in the clinic) became so long that it was limiting my ability to help everyone in need. To meet this demand, I have published an E-book that represents hundreds of hours of work documenting all of my successful acne protocols for clearing the acne of thousands of clients (and millions of pimples). Rest assured, all products in my acne skin care line underwent a rigorous 6-month testing process with clients in the POREspective® Acne Treatment Clinic to ensure the product regimens really work. I am excited to share my protocols for success with you and acne sufferers everywhere!

Alissa helped formulate, design and market the POREspective line of acne products, which were launched in August, 2015 after four years of successful treatment with her clinic clients, and were always tested for a minimum of six months in the acne clinic before being sold online. POREspective® Acne Solutions products are formulated with FDA-registered and cGMP-compliant laboratories in California, Florida, and Texas and are available to acne sufferers across the U.S.A. through the online shop page.
Alissa’s Personal Acne Journey
In addition to her medical, wellness, and pharmaceutical background, Alissa is an acne sufferer herself. She started getting blackheads as a teenager which worsened to hormonal acne in her 30s and 40s, caused by a combination of pore-clogging anti-aging skin care products, a surge in post-pregnancy hormones, and the stress of trying to balance a career with motherhood.
When years of prescription acne medications couldn’t clear her skin, Alissa carefully researched ingredients, subsequently identified products that clear acne quickly, and found the solution.
That’s when Alissa shifted from pharmaceuticals to clinical and medical esthetics, working directly with acne sufferers while assisting local dermatologists, gynecologists and pediatricians manage their acne patients.
Alissa’s Approach to Treating Acne
Alissa’s unique approach integrates conventional and alternative acne treatments to achieve clear skin. This comprehensive approach focuses on both clearing current acne while preventing future breakouts by addressing the root cause of acne.
Alissa believes that acne is both inherited (genetic) and “self-inflicted” (from the use of pore-clogging skin care products, hair products, makeup, and an inflammatory diet). Thus, by considering internal factors (leaky gut, hormonal imbalances, candida) and external factors (comedogenic products, skin picking), following a diet to create deep healing on the inside, and speeding up healing on the outside with an improved skin care routine and medical-grade products, most acne sufferers are able to achieve clear skin on this topical-only program without using antibiotics, Accutane or other prescriptions.
