Acne Program

How the Acne Program Works:

Our Acne Treatment Program uses a comprehensive approach to treat acne and restore healthy skin. We combine the power of bimonthly acne treatments with professional acne care products, and the guidance and expertise of an Acne Skincare Specialist. All treatment and product selection is determined on an individual basis. What works for one person may not work for the other. For this reason, we keep a watchful eye on how your skin responds - making modifications to your treatment plan as needed. As your acne lesions begin to heal, we will continue making modifications to encourage the repairing and rebuilding process. Once your acne is under control, you will need to maintain your daily skincare regimen to keep your acne at bay.

Some patients display acne patterns and symptoms that are indicative of an underlying health problem such as food, gluten and chemical intolerance; nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, adrenal fatigue, digestive disorders, and hormonal imbalances. By taking a functional approach to treatment, we provide guidance in treating your acne from the inside out. If necessary, recommendations for alternative treatment will be provided.

Types of Acne We Treat:

We treat grades 1-4 acne vulgaris, which includes mild to severe cases of non-inflamed acne, inflamed acne, and cystic acne. While the demand for treating teenage acne is a tall order, the many of our patients have adult and menopausal acne. What works for one person may not work for the other. For this reason, all in-office treatments and daily skincare regimens are determined on an individual basis. As your skin's health improves, your acne treatments and skincare regimen will continually be adjusted to facilitate the acne clearing process.

Types of Acne Treatments:

  • Chemical Peels
  • Enzyme Treatments
  • Microdermabrasion
  • LED
Or a combination of modalities depending on the condition of your skin.

Who Is a Candidate:

The Acne Treatment Program requires patience, commitment, and compliance. Acne treatments are required every two weeks and are scheduled in advance to ensure you stay on track. Your skincare protocol consists of numerous steps both morning and night. Most people who start the acne program have sought help for acne down every avenue and want clear skin so badly that they are willing to do whatever it takes to have healthy, clear, acne-free skin. This includes the demands of a program and a methodical skincare regimen. For those who are committed, clear skin is just a few short months away!

How to Stay Clear:

Don't slack on your products! Once your acne is under control, it's critical that you continue your daily skincare protocol to keep your skin healthy and clear. Many clients elect to come in every 4 weeks for a maintenance treatment to keep their pores clean and their skin healthy.

Skin Care Products:

Your initial acne skin care products typically cost $110 to $140. You can expect your acne products to last 3 to 5 months depending on the size and use required.

All of our acne treatments provide the following:

  1. Appropriate exfoliation for your skin type, type of acne and your physical condition. Proper exfoliation allows the products to penetrate the skin and into the pores much more effectively.
  2. Hydration of the skin which is necessary for more rapid healing of the lesions and to make your skin more receptive to your home-care acne regimen. The acne products have a tendency to dry out the skin as you are getting used to them.
  3. Extractions to remove the acne impactions that are closer to the surface, allowing the lesions to heal more quickly.
  4. Treatment to combat the bacteria inside the pore.
  5. Lifting and lightening of any dark spots that may be a result of your acne lesions.
