Step 1: Consultation & 1st Treatment
Customize Your Plan
During your first visit, you will complete a detailed skin questionnaire and your skin will be evaluated to determine the type of acne you have, products that you will use and the best in-office treatments for your type of acne. You will receive treatments every two weeks until your acne clears.
An Acne Clearing Program folder with information on how to manage your acne, lifestyle changes that may need to be made and several resources to keep you clear will be given to you on your first appointment. You will receive your first treatment and products will need to be purchased. Your full sized products will cost $160-180 pretax and will last approx 2.5 months. When your products run out Additional product purchase is required to remain on the program. Plan on 60-75 minutes on your first visit.
Step 2: Treatments
The Work Begins
You will receive treatments every two weeks which will include a hydrating treatment with extractions or a peel with extractions and a high frequency antibacterial treatment. Treatments twice a month are important because I can provide you with extractions to rid surfacing acne while providing hydrating treatments that will aid in product penetration. In addition to your fight I will provide antibacterial treatments to kill the acne bacteria inside the pore. Most clients clear within 3-4 months.
LED light therapy may be used as well. Lifestyle issues that affect acne such as diet, stress, medication, supplements, illness and makeup will be discussed at every visit. Please understand that this program works for those willing to make changes if necessary as related to diet,makeup and adherence to product usage twice a day.
Step 3: Maintenance
Preserving Healthy Skin
Your maintenance program will be tailored as well to accommodate your specific skin issues. The amount of time spent in the maintenance phase depends on the amount and severity of scaring you’ve experienced. The maintenance program is optional, but highly recommended to aid in the removal of hyper pigmentation and scaring left from acne. You’ve gotten this far so let’s get your skin as flawless as possible! Regular maintenance treatments can be as often as every month or every 3 months. Continue using the non pore clogging products that got you clear so you'll continue to stay clear.
Other treatment modalities will be discussed such as stronger peels, Dermafile Resurfacing Treatment and the Rezenerate Nano Facial Treatment.
