Acne Clinic Initial Skin Care Consultation – For All New Acne Clients
Forget superficial skin care; we take a deep dive into your biology and behavior to create a custom strategy that includes leading-edge acne treatments and techniques at our acne clinic and proven in-home protocols with our specially formulated products. We educate you and provide clear instructions that set you up for skin care success. The result is clear, sustainable skin that empowers you to put your best face forward.
At your initial appointment, we will determine your skin type, type of acne, and skin tolerance to create a customized, every 2-week in-clinic treatment and our Skin+ product plan to clear your skin quickly and effectively. We’ll also discuss aggravating factors that make you break out, including food, medication, cosmetics, stress and so on.
Initial Acne Clinic Consultation
1 hour/ $175 Plus Products
Your first appointment includes education, acne treatment with extractions. We then provide you with a detailed plan including must-follow, at-home protocol, diet and other actions to support your specific skin care needs. Please note that we require you to purchase our specially formulated products for your daily home care routine — not only do they work, but we also know how and why they work. (We may not be familiar with other skin care products or be able to tell you why they’re not working.)
*Expect to pay about $400-$500 for your first set of acne products and treatment at your first appointment. We do not offer treatments or extractions to clients that do not use our home care products. You are also required to come in for a treatment every 2 weeks for about 4 months.
Our Initial Skin Care Consultation includes:
1) Skin Care Strategy Creation
During your first consultation, we analyze your specific skin type(s) and uncover the root causes of your skin care challenges. We also do an initial acne treatment that includes extractions and exfoliation.
Based on our findings, we provide you with a customized product recommendation list and an at-home skin care routine.
Because your skin has its own unique needs, we recommend setting up ongoing appointments. This allows us to assess and adjust your home care routine as necessary and perform exfoliation treatments and extractions based on your goals and needs.
These appointments can range in frequency, from bi-weekly to every six weeks.
2) Integrative, Non-Toxic Acne Treatments
Our specially formulated products are safe to use; they do not include antibiotics and you don’t need a prescription from a doctor. Not only is this a healthy alternative to harmful treatments, but it also alleviates any concerns about unexpected physical or mental side effects.
3) Customized, results-driven protocols
Our products and treatment can be customized to address a variety of needs, including (but not limited to):
- General acne
- Sensitive skin
- Chin acne
- Back acne
- Severe acne
- Excessive blackheads
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin texture
- Uneven skin tone
- Aging (fine lines, wrinkles)
4) Non-Comedogenic Products For Healthy, Open Pores
Unlike many store-bought skin care products, our specially formulated products will not clog your pores. During your initial consultation, we provide you with a list of ingredients that are known to block pores and contribute to a variety of skin care problems, including acne. This list can be used to help guide you when buying additional facial products, such as makeup.
Treating Teenage Acne
Because clear skin requires a collaborative effort, this program isn’t for everyone, and we’ll help determine if it’s a good fit for your teenager. There are a few things you should take into consideration before booking a consultation for your teen. Unfortunately, the clear rates for teens are not as high as the 98% rate for adults. With teenagers, there are many factors such as hormones, stress, and compliance that contribute to this. We have had a ton of success clearing teenage clients and we love treating them just keep in mind that some will most likely not get completely clear. We do not guarantee clear skin if you are under 18 and we do not give refunds for treatments or products.
