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 acne treatments provide the following:
•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.
•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.
•Extractions to remove the acne impaction that are closer to the surface, allowing the lesions to heal more *quickly.
•Treatment to combat the bacteria inside the pore.
•Lifting and lightening of any dark spots that may be a result of your acne lesions.

All acne skin care treatments have a specific focus 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 action. Our Acne Specialists 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 how your skin is responding to treatment. At that point, we will almost always adjust your home care as your skin adapts to your current routine in about two weeks. Usually, clearing takes anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks. It typically takes about six acne treatments over a three-months to get you mostly to completely clear; *significant results can be seen within six weeks. After your acne is under control, you will need to maintain your acne skin care home regimen to keep your acne managed. Many of our cleared clients come in for a tune-up acne treatment every few months just to keep their skin as healthy as possible. Skin care products are dispensed only upon professional recommendation and protocols start $200 (before tax). We will create a customized skin care regimen based on your type of acne and the condition of your skin. This package is separate from the Initial Consult and Acne Treatment fee. Products are required in order to completely clear your skin.
*Disclaimer: Your results may vary. Results take time and depend on adherence to the whole program. Results typically take 6 weeks – 3 months, but could take longer. Your skin is worth the time and effort.
