Acne Bootcamp

Consultation

I’d love to invite you into my studio, get to know you and take a look at your skin. I will determine what type and grade of acne you have and discuss any concerns with you. Since acne isn’t a one size fits all, there are many different options and treatments to go over. This consultation will be free and will help determine if you are a good fit for the program.

During your one-on-one consultation we will:

  • Determine skin type, acne type and skin tolerance
  • Give you expert recommendations for acne treatments and acne skin care products you will need
  • Discuss lifestyle factors that can aggravate your acne (foods, cosmetics, stress, etc.)

First Treatment W/ Sensitivity Test

*Please read about the Acne Program in detail before scheduling an Acne Consultation so you understand what this program entails. Please only schedule your first treatment after you’ve been in for your acne consultation.

After your acne consultation, you will book your first treatment with a sensitivity test. During this session, we’ll discuss your acne history and dive deep into what may be causing your acne. I’ll analyze your skin, perform a sensitivity test and determine your skin type, acne type, and skin tolerance. I’ll provide recommendations for the products and treatments you’ll need to get clear, and I’ll discuss lifestyle adjustments that will improve your acne. You’ll also receive a packet of information that reviews everything from this consultation.

*Note: Prescription acne medications, antibiotics, and creams need to be discontinued two weeks before starting our program, and Accutane (Isotretinoin) needs to be discontinued six months prior.

CLINICAL-GRADE PRODUCTS

Homecare products are required for this program and are not included in the treatment cost.  Our clinical-grade acne skin care products are specifically designed to effectively penetrate the skin deep into the pore. The combination of exfoliating serums and benzoyl peroxide kills acne causing bacteria (P. Acnes Bacteria) while making the pore inhabitable. Our active ingredients work in conjunction with effective hydrators to minimize sensitivity and flakiness. Please expect to pay $120 on your initial homecare product set. To assure that you are getting the most out of your products, we will adjust your home-care routine every two weeks. 

*Note adjusting your homecare routine does not mean constantly buying new products

Bi-Weekly Treatments

Treatments are required every two weeks so we can exfoliate the skin, extract existing acne impactions, and kill acne bacteria inside the pore.  Each treatment is specifically focused on what your skin needs at the time of treatment—most treatments will involve a mild chemical peel, but a hydrating enzyme treatment may also be performed if necessary.  Treatments involve very minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.  Expect mild dryness and/or flaking for a few days post-treatment.  Body Acne Treatments are also available if needed.

Maintenance

Once clear, we begin to space out treatments to monthly and eventually quarterly rather than every two weeks. We will also begin to scale back on the number of products in your homecare routine, but for the most part you will remain on some of products indefinitely in order to remain clear. The important thing to note is that acne is never 100% cured, but it can be controlled!

*Most acne cases are cleared in 4 to 6 months, but results may vary. Results take time and patience, and truly depend on the severity of your acne and your adherence to the whole program. Do not be discouraged if your results take longer to achieve, your skin is worth the time and patience!
