What is Acne?
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores causing dead skin cells to shed 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 five layers of dead skin cells per day creating a plug. This plug is called a microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days to surface, it turns into blackheads and congestion under the skin; or into inflamed pimples, pustules or cysts.
How Long Will It Take To Get Clear?
It takes up to 90 days for acne to form, so you may still have 90 days of acne that will surface. Our acne products and protocol will keep the new acne from forming that would surface 90 days from now. Our Acne Program will have you clear to mostly clear in 3-4 months depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne may take longer to clear.
What You Must Do
Home care regimen AM + PM
Acne Treatments every two weeks until you are clear or mostly clear.
Home Care Adjustments to boost your regimen as your skin adapts to products.
Must only use products prescribed to you.
Lifestyle Adjustments to reduce or eliminate acne aggravating foods, medications, and cosmetics or hair care products.
What Are Adjustments to Home Care?
During each Acne Treatment, your skin will be assessed to see if we can boost your regimen. We do not want your skin to get adapted to products, but also not make the regimen so strong that your skin gets dry and irritated. This method will keep your skin clearing up. Sometimes this will mean using a product you already have more or less often and sometimes you will need to purchase a higher strength active product to alternate into your routine.
How Much Does it Cost?
Your first appointment will be $125 for consultation and treatment. Every appointment after will be $85 every two weeks. The cost of products will depend on your needs but can range between $160 - $230. You will need to replenish products as you go through them or sometimes add a new product.
Most of the products last 2-3 months.
