Clear skin can be hard to come by, and while daily cleansing is great, acne-prone skin requires regular "deep cleansing" treatments to ensure clear pores and minimize breakouts.
We understand that navigating through the myriad of acne treatments can be confusing. That's why we are dedicated to making the process of choosing the right treatment easy for you.
To ensure we address your specific type of acne correctly and effectively, we highly recommend that everyone struggling with acne books an Acne Specialist Consultation or an Acne Consultation + Facial for their first appointment. By doing so, we can provide personalized guidance and tailor a treatment plan that suits your unique needs and concerns.
When most people think of acne, they think of giant, red bumps but acne actually comes in all different shapes and sizes.
Did you know there are 7 different types of acne?
Acne also ranges from mild to severe, it can be occasional or constant, and it can last for a month or a decade. Regardless of how noticeable it is, how often you breakout, or how long it lasts, it all counts! I have experienced every type of acne at various points in my life and I can assure you that having non-inflamed acne sucks just as much as inflamed acne does.
The 3 main categories of acne: Which type do you have?
Inflamed acne is categorized based on the presence of redness, swelling, and tenderness in the affected areas. It includes types such as papules, pustules, and cysts, which all indicate varying degrees of inflammation in the skin.
Non-inflamed acne is categorized as comedonal acne, which consists of blackheads and whiteheads. These types of acne are characterized by the presence of clogged pores without significant redness, swelling, or inflammation in the surrounding skin.
Combination acne refers to a type of acne that presents with a combination of both inflamed and non-inflamed lesions on the skin. It is characterized by the presence of both papules, pustules, or cysts, as well as comedones such as blackheads and whiteheads.
Our Acne Bootcamp involves a customized regimen of clinical grade products and treatments spaced two weeks apart. You will be educated about aggravating factors such as food, medication, cosmetics, stress, and pore-clogging skin care ingredients. Unlike other providers, this is a holistic program that focuses on lifestyle changes, not just product and treatment.
A chemical peel is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This process removes the outermost layers of dead and damaged skin cells, revealing a new, smoother, and more youthful layer of skin underneath.
A clinical facial is a customized skincare treatment designed to address your unique skin concerns, skin type, and history. Our experienced professionals take the time to thoroughly assess your skin and tailor each facial to meet your specific needs. By focusing on your individual skin requirements, we can deliver targeted solutions that help improve your overall skin health and appearance.
