  • give you recommendations for the products and treatments you will need to get clear

  • go over aggravating factors that make you break out – foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, etc.

  • give you a packet of information that has everything that we tell you in the consultation

If you decide to go on our acne-clearing program, you will be instructed on how to use your products for the first two weeks of your program.

*Products are not included in the cost of the treatment.

Acne Treatments

We will want to see you every two weeks for an acne treatment. It typically takes about six to eight services over a 3 to 4-month period of time to get you mostly to completely clear. Your Acne Specialist will:

  • assess what type of treatment your skin needs when you come in. They will also

  • assess how your home care regimen will be adjusted so that your skin does not over-adapt and stop responding.

As you get clear, your treatments will become shorter – there just won’t be as many extractions to do.

After your acne is under control, you will simply need to maintain your home care products to keep clear.

Body Acne Treatments

Acne on the body is assessed the same way as on the face.  We still test the skin for sensitivity and tolerance to products.  Often, the back needs stronger products because the skin is thicker and less sensitive than on the face.

*Products not included in price of treatment.

Acne Rosacea Treatments

Even though Acne Rosacea is not acne, it still responds to an anti-bacterial regimen much the same as acne. It usually clears up much more quickly than acne and will stay clear as long as product use is maintained. We educate you on food and environmental triggers that can make rosacea worse.

Acne Scarring

We can help you with dark spots but we cannot help you with indented, pitted scarring. Pitted scarring takes a more aggressive medical approach, so you must contact your doctor for scar treatments.  Face Reality Acne Clinic does not do scar treatments.

Every client’s skin is different, which is why at Face Reality no one acne program is the same. Your treatments will be specifically tailored to your skin’s needs.

How Our System Works

Acne is a mysterious skin disorder, but one thing is for sure – it can be controlled with the right combination of products, used in the correct way. Just as in a clogged drain, the pore must be treated with products that unclog it and kill the acne bacteria.

Face Reality Acne Clinic has a clear-skin system that will have your acne under control in about three to four months, depending on your type of acne. We combine the power of clinical-grade products that are customized for your type of acne, with a series of bi-monthly treatments. We also teach you about other aggravating factors that make you break out – foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores (even professional and prescription products).

As you go through your process of achieving clear skin on your face and/or body, you will want to come in for treatments every two weeks. Treatments are for:

  • exfoliating the skin so that home care product can penetrate the pore more easily; or,

  • hydrating the skin so that the skin is receptive to your home-care regimen

  • extracting existing acne impactions

  • killing acne bacteria inside the pore

Each acne treatment is specifically focused on what the skin needs at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial and/or anti-inflammatory action.

How We Are Different!

The most important aspect of our system is not just starting you with the right products, but we teach you but how to use them. We test your skin to make sure you are getting the the most effective products for your acne type, skin type, and skin tolerance. It won’t be enough just to have the right products – it’s all about having the right routine for those products. You will learn how to use products slowly at first, so that your skin stays receptive without causing irritation or dehydration. But skin can become accustomed to products and then become less effective over time – that is why we will adjust your regimen little by little, to get rid of your acne.

We know that you are used to getting a prescription or products from the store, and then are left trying to figure it out all on your own. Your Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist will help you tackle your acne head on, providing strong products with a specific regimen and a balanced approach that is not overly harsh. In-office treatments speed the process, but with our support, our clients find their acne clears up within a few months.

Your esthetician will analyze your skin at the beginning of every appointment to assess which treatment would serve you best. Treatments are performed every two weeks until your skin clears.

Having suffered from severe inflamed acne for several years, I began to accept the fact that my skin would never be clear. Surprisingly, after several treatments at Face Reality my skin cleared up dramatically. Face Reality delivered results to my skin that surpassed my expectations. In the last 7 years, my skin has never been better.

Within two to three weeks we noticed a huge change. The inflammation was going down and with treatments every two weeks my daughter Sarah’s skin really did start to clear. What amazes me is that Sarah has been to dermatologists since she was in junior high school. The last time she went in, the doctor said he did not know what to do, they had tried it all. Well, Sarah walked down the aisle on her wedding day acne free, thanks to Face Reality!

Best place for acne! I have done every treatment there is and they give the best results. The staff really cares about you. Whenever you have a question you can always call or email them. They go over every detail, not just products and treatments, but your lifestyle and other factors that would cause or prevent acne. For someone that’s suffered with acne for so long this place is the ultimate answer.

Listen to me people! I have tried EVERYTHING! Dermatologists, Proactive, Murad, the $100 creams at the expensive spas, over the counter, under the counter, homeopathic, diet change, fasting, countless facials from countless estheticians, flown around the world and back. I am telling you, Face Reality is IT! They have done their research. They go to all the conferences. They get right to it, handle the mess and voila… it’s a done deal!
