Acne is a very emotional ordeal for many sufferers. Most of you who suffer from acne have tried every product, treatment, or medication, sometimes getting clear for a little while only to have your acne return. If this sounds familar, I invite you to come in to see me for an acne consult to learn about our system. There is no one size fits all when it comes to skin care. Using the proper products in the right way and adjusting your home care every two weeks will give you the best opportunity to get clear.
The cause of Acne:
Is an inherited disorder of the pores “retention hyperkeratosis”. Acne-prone skin sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day inside the pore and the body just can’t keep up. This forms congestion under the skin which and cause acne lesions. Non-inflammed, blackheads and/or whitheads. If bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil) you will get inflamed pimples, pustules and/or cysts.
Using the proper products and adjusting homecare is essential to getting clear. Your skin will adapt to products which is why we start slow and adjust usage over time. By making the proper adjustments we keep pushing the skin to clear and allow the products to penetrate the pore where acne starts. By going slow we don't push it past its tolerance causeing the skin to be overly dry and irritated (it is normal to be a little dry during this time).
With a system of proper homecare, adjusting product usage as needed, along with a series of bi-monthly treatments. Your acne can be under control in about three to six months depending on your type of acne. I also provide you with information on other aggravating factors that make you break out, such as foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common pore clogging ingredients.
Consultations and service plans
At Skin Solutions our treatment plan is highly successful with clients who are home care compliant. On average, clients that are home care compliant have their acne under control or are significantly clear in 3 to 6 months. Often times there is a noticeable improvement after two to three acne treatments.
Our program requires, commitment and compliance. For best results, I need to see clients every 2 weeks, until your acne is under control. I can work long distant client but it may take longer to get clear. I do require all long distant clients have a consult in person in order to start on the program. This is so I can properly test the serums and make sure we use the right one for you. I require that clients only use our acne products in order to start the program. We want to eliminate any outside influences that may aggravate your acne. After your acne is under control, you will simply need to maintain your home care products to keep clear.
