What is FACE REALITY?
FACE REALITY is a 3–6-month process with your commitment to use the prescribed acne safe products exclusively AND commit to change your diet, lifestyle, makeup, etc. FACE REALITY Acne treatments/homecare products are proven to work with a success rate of 95%. Our treatments are designed to treat all types of acne grades 1- 4 (mild to severe non-inflamed, inflamed, cystic acne, hormonal acne, acne rosacea, teen acne, mature or adult acne and back acne) without the use of prescription drugs. We use Face Reality Skincare which is a tried and true system of the best anti-acne products and treatments. We customize an effective clear-skin plan just for you.
How does the acne treatment work? How often do I need in office treatments?
We use a comprehensive approach to treat acne. We combine the power of acne treatments with professional acne care products, and the guidance and expertise of a certified acne skincare specialist. All treatment and product selection are determined on an individual basis. What works for one person may not work for another. For this reason, we keep an eye on how your skin responds – making modifications to your treatment plan as needed. This initially requires an office visit every two weeks for several months. Once your acne is under control, you will need to maintain your daily skincare regimen. To keep your skin healthy, follow up appointments are recommended for a monthly deep cleanse facial with professional products.
What is Acne?
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores – pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms the microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days, it turns into blackheads or congestion under the skin; or if bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts.
How long will it take to get clear?
Because it takes up to 90 days for acne to form, you may still have 90 days of acne that will surface. Our acne products and protocol will keep the new acne from forming that would surface 90 days from now. The Face Reality Acne System will have your acne under control in about three to six months (in most cases) depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne take longer to clear. Your Acne Specialist will customize a home care regimen that takes at least five things into consideration - your type of acne, your skin type, your skin color, your skin sensitivity, and your environment. The biggest part of getting your skin clear will be your commitment to doing your home care regimen as instructed and following lifestyle guidelines.
What guidelines must I follow to keep my skin clear?
- Your custom home care regimen twice daily
- Treatments and/or assessment from your esthetician every two weeks
- Home Care Adjustments – consistent adjustments to boost your home care regimen
- Lifestyle Adjustments - foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and pore-clogging ingredients in skin and hair products
What is the cost of the home care products?
Average purchase of $150-200 is typical which will last 2-4 months when used as directed.
