If you’re looking for a skin cream that will fight your skin concerns while restoring your natural glow, Pearl Cream might be just what the Doctor ordered!

Pearl Cream is one prescription grade cream with five amazing prescription strength ingredients – tretinoin cream, hydroquinone, calming cream, salicylic and glycolic fruit acids, vitamins A, C & E – plus a whole host of potent  skin enhancing products.  Dr. Jing Jing’s formulation aggressively targets the most common issues that our Beauties face: acne, seborrheic dermatitis, blocked pores, and even cystic conditions.

We don’t call Pearl Cream our “Skin Perfecting Potion” for no reason Beauties! Each ingredient serves a very specific and effective purpose.


Tretinoin Cream, also known as Retin A Cream is a chemical exfoliant.  It’s like a “chemical peel in a “tube”. Used daily, it causes increased skin cell turnover, increased surface skin sloughing, or light peeling. This sloughing helps to bring forth the new, unmarred underlying skin, get rid of damaged external skin and blemishes, and decrease fine lines.  Regular use leaves patients with a younger looking appearance and a very apparent natural glow.


If you are ready to wave bye-bye to dark spots and uneven skin tone, then you will love the Skin Brightening properties of PFA Pearl Cream. 

Hydroquinone, is also known as “Skin Brightening Cream”. Some low percentage, over the counter, well-known brands that include hydroquinone are Ambi and Nadinola. We use prescription grade (which starts at 4%) in our Pearl Cream compounds. Since we specialize in treating patients with pigmented skin tones, we carry numerous compound doses of Hydroquinone in our Pearl Cream mixtures. Often times, many patients may have been using OTC (over the counter) bleaching agents for some time to treat dark spots from acne blemishes. Unfortunately, even if the OTC product is somewhat effective, because the skin is damaged (thickened due to past trauma and inflammation, darkened due to past bruising and possible cystic activity) the medication cannot “penetrate” the damaged skin to be effective in treating the underlying “good’ skin.


There are still more ingredients to share from our Pearl Cream Skin Perfector! Alongside the Retina A and Hydroquinone is a calming agent that soothes and protects the skin from becoming irritated. When using exfoliating and brightening products, the skin can become irritated and feel “tight” and uncomfortable, thus it’s important to include a “calming cream” to counter act any discomfort. If you had a wonderful cream that made your face look beautiful and radiant, but every time you used it, it made your skin “hurt”, you would rarely use it. That is why we included a “calming ointment” in our Proprietary Compound. All things need “balance”, including your skin.


Power to the Fruit Acids Beauties! Our compound wouldn’t be complete without the exfoliating properties of Salicylic and Glycolic Acids! Salicylic acid is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid, another well know exfoliant. It is used in the treatment of scaly skin diseases where the skin has become thickened, scaly and flaky. Salicylic acid works by softening keratin, a protein that forms a part of the external skin structure. This helps to loosen dry, scaly, skin, and decrease blocked pores. Salicylic acid in combination with other medications is very helpful in Acne, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Chronic Eczema (atopic dermatitis) and even viral warts. It works by helping to remove the external, affected layer of skin so other medications can penetrate more effectively. 

Glycolic acid, an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), is a well known skin exfoliant. It also works on the external layer of the skin, by dissolving sebum and other substances that causes cells to “stick” together. Alpha Hydroxy Acids break the bonds between weakened skin cells, making it easy to exfoliate. This in turn helps to encourage the production of new skin cells. Regular use of Glycolic Acid products also helps to increase skin thickness, improve quality of elastic fibers and increases density of collagen. In other words it helps to exfoliate AND “tighten” up the skin.


No skin perfecting formula is complete without the most powerful skincare vitamins on earth! Vitamins A, C & E provide amazing cell  turnover, pore cleansing and antioxidant factors, and they complete our Pearl Cream ingredient list. 

Vitamin A is essential to good health, especially in vision. It also has important effects on the skin. Vitamin A in various forms is one of the most common treatments for acne. Tretinoin Cream (Retin A) is actually a “turbo charged” synthetic-acid form of Vitamin A, used to stimulate rapid growth in the skin and increase cell turn over. 

Vitamin C is also essential to good health and also has dramatic effects on the skin. Most notably, if you have acne, or other type of inflammatory skin ailment, Vitamin C can help by decreasing the “redness” in your skin. Redness is partially the result of inflammation, especially with Active Acne. The immune system releases inflammatory chemicals to destroy acne bacteria, but the bacteria have a “decoy” system that redirect those chemicals toward the skin itself. Vitamin C “tones down” this inflammatory response sparing the destruction of healthy skin instead of the bacteria in the pores. 

Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which means that it protects the skin against hazardous break down products (free radicals) that are released when skin cells metabolize. Vitamin E is crucial to skin health because it helps skin cells “cure” themselves after injury.
