First Time Consultation

Book Appointment

This is required before beginning any treatment or homecare. We will go over the program and discuss what to be expected. We will evaluate and discuss all possible acne triggers such as: hormones, digestive system, stress levels, diet, medications, cosmetics and lifestyle. It also includes a mini facial to test any skin sensitivities and pick the right homecare plan for you.

Acne Facial

The Acne Facial should be performed every 2 weeks. Depending on how your skin is doing, we will either do a peel or a hydrating enzyme. The chemical peel is great for reducing inflammation and acne breakouts, as well as evening out skin texture, lighten scars and aiding in the production of collagen and elastin. The hydrating enzyme is great for dry, dehydrated, sensitive and/or irritated skin that needs assistance in rebuilding the skin barrier. 

Add-On Services

  • $25 (30 mins)- Celluma Light TherapyThe energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime.

  • $5- High Frequency: Treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, decongest puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles. During the high frequency treatment, enriched oxygen molecules are produced that create an anti-bacterial action and a "natural" thermal tissue warming. This reaction helps your blood vessels push away toxins, while the cells in your skin are enriched with nutrients and hydrating volume. This in turn creates an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal that supports increased levels of collagen and elastin.

So what is Acne?

Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores- pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The Acne-prone pore sheds up to fiver layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can't keep up! This forms the microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days, it turns into blackheads or congestion under the skin; or if bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts. 

Why Face Reality Acne Program?

Most other acne treatments out there want to focus on treating bacteria with antibiotics or prescription drugs that can have long term lasting effects on your overall health. However this doesn't treat the root cause of acne which is an over production of dead skin cells as well as sebum (oil). Face Reality Products are a holistic alternative which focus on gently exfoliating dead skin cells so that they don't clog up the pores.

  • Premium Products: All Face Reality Skincare products are meticulously crafted without acne-causing ingredients that are commonly found in other “acne fighting” skincare lines on the market. Their formulations contain only the highest-quality skin nourishing ingredients, resulting in significant benefits beyond treating acne.
  • Customization + Real Results: We provide custom treatment options for every age, gender, acne type and skin type, including Fitzpatrick 4+. We even take it one step further and take diet and lifestyle factors into careful consideration. In as little as 3-4 months, you will see a drastic improvement in your overall complexion.

What can you expect from the Face Reality Acne Program? 

The Acne treatment will last 12 weeks. You'll need to come see me every 2 weeks so that I can treat your skin and assess how your skin is doing.

Each treatment is customized for the condition of your skin at the time of treatment. Very mild corrective peels are used to boost the home care along with extractions of existing acne. If your skin is dry or irritated, we will opt for an enzyme/steam with extractions. 

What is expected of you during the Face Reality Acne Program? 

  • This is a 12 week program, every 2 weeks you'll need to come see me to get a treatment and/or assessment. 
  • You must use your custom home care regimen twice daily.
  • Follow Home Care Adjustments- consistent adjustments to boost your home care regimen. We don't want your skin to get used to products, but also not make the regimen so strong that your skin gets dry and irritated.
  • Lifestyle Adjustment- foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and pore-clogging ingredients in skin and hair products. 

Pore Clogging Ingredients in Skin Care

Below is a list of ingredients to avoid in all skin care, acne care, makeup, and hair products. Do not ever put anything on your skin or your hair without checking the ingredients first, even if it says “Won’t Clog Pores” or “Non-Comedogenic” on the bottle.

Natural oils can be some of the worst offenders, like cocoa butter and coconut oil which are found in many “organic” skin care lines. Other oils such as jojoba, olive, and lanolin are mildly comedogenic and can be a problem if formulated with other comedogenic ingredients. Some prescription products like the cream form of Retin-A have pore cloggers. Many over-the-counter acne medications also have pore clogging ingredients. “Oil-free” products can be comedogenic
