ACNE TREATMENT PROGRAM
Are You Suffering From Acne?
If you are suffering from acne, then it’s time for real answers. The dermatologist keeps giving you prescriptions that don’t work? Tried Proactive and still breaking out? Considered going on Accutane, but think it’s too risky? Want clear skin? Products alone will not solve your problem. You also need an acne specialist’s expert guidance.
Our Signature Clear Skin BOOTCAMP
Our signature Acne Treatment Bootcamp is a 12 week program designed to clear up your acne. With our program we see you every two weeks. At each biweekly appointment, we will analyze your skin at the beginning of every visit to assess which treatment would serve you best, and determine what changes need to be made to your custom home care routine. Acne treatments are performed every two weeks until your skin clears. It is important that we see you every two weeks to assess your progress and see how your skin is responding to treatment. At that point we will almost always adjust your home care because your skin adapts to your current routine in about two weeks.
It typically takes three-to-four months to clear your skin. After your skin is clear we usually ask to see you once a month for about three months to be sure that you stay clear with less intervention from us. If you do, we turn you loose and you can come as often or as infrequently as you like, but you will need to maintain your home care to keep the acne under control.
Please Note: The cost of the initial consultation and treatment is $165. When signing up for the Acne Bootcamp, expect to pay about $200-$250 for your first set of acne home care products at your first appointment. Your home care products will last approximately 2-3 months.*If you wish to sign up for Acne Boot Camp during your initial skin consultation the $50 consultation fee will be waived.
ACNE TREATMENT & SERVICES
Skin Consultation with Initial Acne Treatment
The first time you come to visit us, we spend a lot of time together. We will discuss what acne is because when you understand what causes it, it is easier to get clear. We will also talk about your individual concerns and situation. While you did not do anything to cause your acne, you may be doing things that can make it harder to clear it up and we want to help you understand those blocking factors. In the treatment room we will examine and test your skin to help us to learn what type of skin you have and what type of acne you have. Those two factors help us to put together a home care protocol for you because 75% of getting clear is the daily care regimen. We will provide the first treatment so what you do at home will work better.
$165 l 90mins.
(Per visit )
Our in-office acne treatments are completely individualized, but all include exfoliation and extraction. The type of exfoliation we do is dependent on your skin’s needs and tolerances. Extractions vary according to how many you need and your tolerance. All of our acne treatments provide the following:
Exfoliation for your skin type. Proper exfoliation allows the products to penetrate the skin and pores much more effectively.
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.
Extractions to remove the acne impactions that are close to the surface, allowing the lesions to heal more quickly.
Treatment to combat the bacteria inside the pores.
Lifting and lightening of any dark spots that may be a result of your acne lesions.
$110 l 45mins.
Clear Skin Bootcamp
All acne skin care treatments have a specific focus depending on what your skin needs at the time of your visit. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial and/or anti-inflammatory treatment.
What to expect on your biweekly visit:
Appropriate treatment based on skin assessment e.g. Pro. Acne peel or Enzyme hydration treatment.
Evaluation of current skin condition and home care regimen adjustment.
Extraction of current acne lesions

Back or Chest Acne Treatment
Many individuals with face acne also experience chest acne and back acne. Sometimes, chest or back acne will appear even though the face is clear. The back and the chest are treated differently because the skin is much thicker on the back than on the chest. The price variance has to do with the extent of the body acne and therefore the time and area involved. Price per session is chest or back (choose one).
Add-on to face acne treatment – $110 and up.
$165 l 45mins.
Keratosis Pilaris (KP)
You know those funny bumps some people get on their upper arms? They don’t really look like pimples on the face, but there are similarities. Those bumps are known as “Keratosis Pilaris” and are caused by blocked follicles. We can treat them with a combination of an in-office exfoliation and home care.
$145 l 45mins.
