Tried everything and still have acne? We utilize a clear skin system with a 90% success rate that will have your acne under control in just 3-4 months.

A desire for clear skin is much more than vanity. Acne leaves behind both physical and emotional scars that affects your quality of life. The confidence that comes from loving your skin is life-changing!

 

As certified acne specialists, WE TREAT ACNE DIFFERENTLY. You need an integrated approach in treating acne. Generally, you have several acne triggers. Your diet, lifestyle, medication/supplements, hormones, and skincare products can be triggering or aggravating your acne, and one product, treatment or medication can't possibly address all of these triggers.

Our treatment method is designed to address all your acne triggers, so we can set you up to be clear for life! We will perform a full lifestyle audit to determine what is causing and aggravating your acne and we combine the power of clinical-grade skincare products that are customized for your skin and acne type, with a series of bi-monthly treatments enhanced with High Frequency and LED Light Therapy.

 

Take the first step, by booking our “Clear Skin Discovery Package” consisting of an acne consult + treatment.

ACNE BOOTCAMP CASE STUDIES

Acne-Bootcamp_case3_AFTER.jpg

MARICEL

Maricel’s acne triggers were her medication, diet, stress and using incorrect skincare products from the drugstore that were completely wrong for her skin and acne type.

 

“I couldn’t leave the house without a wearing a full face of makeup. I’ve tried everything from the drugstore but nothing worked! I learned that my lifestyle choices were actually causing me to break out...foods such as dairy, medications, stress and pore clogging ingredients in skincare and makeup products. It turns out that I was actually using the wrong products at home and it was actually making my acne worse!”

 

We recommended a custom skin care routine with clinical grade products without any pore clogging ingredients that was more suitable for her skin and acne type. Combined with a series of in-clinic treatments every 2 weeks. We also made additional lifestyle changes, such as switching her brand of birth control, as those with the potential for higher androgenic symptoms should be avoided for people prone to acne because they promote breakouts. We also advised her to cut back on dairy as we determined this was an acne trigger for her. We educated her on what pore clogging ingredients are, advised her to use cosmetic without any pore clogging ingredients.

FRANCISCO

Francisco has the classic case of teenage inflamed acne. Acne can really ravage the skin of teenage boys –the hormonal fluctuations that teenage boys have can give them horrendous cysts and often they end up with lifelong scars because of it. We started off using the strongest antibacterial we had to get his inflammation under control in the quickest manner possible. We wanted to get the inflammation down as soon as possible to avoid the scarring that could happen if it was left unchecked. His acne cleared up in four month’s time and he was left with minimal scarring.

 

“I have tried Proactiv and antibiotics and none of them seemed to work to clear my skin. My experience with the program was great! My face started to clear fast after I started coming to the clinic. Yes, the results totally met my expectations and ever since my face has started to clear up, I have been getting noticed by everyone. I recommend signing up for the program. It will change your perspective in life.”

ANNA

Anna had suffered from acne for 10 years. She has tried almost every “acne” skin care product at the drugstore and has even been on prescription acne med prescribed by a Dermatologist TWICE but her acne just came back.

 

We recommended a 5-Step home skincare regimen that is specific to her skin and acne type and suggested she come in for a series of treatments every 2 weeks for the next 3 -4 months. Home care is extremely important in treating acne or any skin concern.

 

“Hey Angie! I know you said you’d contact me again in two weeks but thought I’d give you an update as it has been a week since I started using the products you recommended. I am honestly in awe of how much better my skin is already! Everyday is different —my skin was purging for a good four days and then today I woke up and my chin looks 100x better than when I started!!! My pigmentation is almost gone too. I am so so soooo overwhelmed because I did not expect the products to work this well so quickly. I will continue following the instructions you sent. Thank you and know that I am the happiest I have been in a while with my skin. Loving my face again! Lol.”

 

A lot of people who suffer from acne are using the wrong type of products for their skin, that in some cases makes their acne worse. With the proper home care products, Anna’s inflamed acne lesions has diminished quickly within 2 –3 weeks, which made a huge impact in the appearance of her skin. She immediately felt more confident. All that was left is to treat her non-inflamed acne lesions, and we got her acne under control in just 4 months!

step 2: acne bootcamp

After Step 1: The Clear Skin Discovery Session, the next step is to sign up for our 3-4 month Acne Bootcamp. The Acne Bootcamp is a clear skin system that has a 90% success rate that will have your acne under control in about three to four months, depending on your type of acne. The system combines the power of clinical-grade products that are customized for your type of acne, with a series of bi-monthly treatments.

 

The Acne Treatment Consists of:

• Clinical Acne Peel

• Extractions

• High Frequency therapy

• LED therapy

 

This treatment will be performed every 2 weeks and your acne specialist will re-assess your skin and make the appropriate adjustments in your treatment and home care routine, as your skin progresses.

 

Home Care (skin care routine) is mandatory in this program, using incorrect products at home will get in the way of you getting clear. Individuals with acne prone skin are often aggravating their acne by using skin care products containing pore clogging ingredients that are unsuitable for their skin and acne type. Incorporating proper skin care into your regimen will help you maintain your results once you are finished your series of treatments. Acne cannot be cured; it can only be managed. You can control your breakouts by using the right skin care routine and staying away from your acne triggers (which we will determine during your Clear Skin Discovery Session). Your acne specialist will put together a skincare routine that is specific to your skin and acne type.

 

We have multiple Acne Bootcamp packages available that will suit your budget (ranging from $400-$700). Pricing will be discussed during your Clear Skin Discovery Session/Consultation.

ACNE 101: WHAT IS ACNE?

Generally, acne is an inherited condition of the pores. When someone is prone to acne, their pores clog with dead skin cells much faster than normal. Healthy pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore, but acne-prone pores shed up to five layers of dead skin cells per day. The body just can’t keep up with keeping the pore clear. Technically, this is called “retention hyperkeratosis” — dead skin cells shedding more quickly than the pore can expel them.

 

Since acne is primarily an inherited dead skin cell problem, the solution lies in products that penetrate and unclog the pore and prevent dead skin cells from building up, so you can prevent future acne from forming.

A SINGLE METHOD APPROACH WON'T WORK

THERE'S NO ONE "HERO" PRODUCT, DEVICE OR MEDICATION THAT WILL TREAT YOUR ACNE ON IT'S OWN

 

We've come across many clients that has tried every acne products at the drugstore only to be disappointed when it didn't work and in some cases made their acne worse. Likewise, we've also come across clients who has been on 2 rounds of prescription acne medication from the dermatologist, only to have their acne come back after finishing their medication. You need an integrated approach in treating acne. Your diet, lifestyle, medication/supplements and skincare products can be triggering or aggravating your acne, and a one-hit wonder product, device or medication can't possibly address all of these triggers. Treating your acne requires lifestyle adjustments!

ACNE CAN'T BE CURED

IT CAN ONLY BE MANAGED

 

Since acne is a genetic condition, you're always going to be susceptible. That means even after you clear your skin, you have to keep treating with a maintenance regimen and make an effort to keep your acne triggers at bay.

HOW DO WE TREAT ACNE?

WE HAVE AN INTEGRATED APPROACH IN TREATING ACNE



We use clinical-grade home care products that are customized for your acne and skin type, along with a series of bi-monthly treatments that facilitate the clearing of your skin. We have a 90% success rate clearing acne within 3 -4 months. Since acne is primarily an inherited dead skin cell problem, the solution lies in products that penetrate and unclog the pore and prevent dead skin cells from building up, so you can prevent future acne from forming. We also teach you about other aggravating factors that make you break out – foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores (even professional and prescription products!).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If I book The Clear Skin Discovery Package, do I have to join Acne Bootcamp?


No, you don’t have to join our Acne Bootcamp. With the Clear Skin Discovery Session, you will learn a lot about your acne and what causes/aggravates it. You will also be provided with useful recommendations that will help you get clear. I would consider investing in our recommended home care routine, as this is an overly critical part in getting clear. Our recommended home care regimen consists of 4 to 6 products. Home care regimen cost varies depending on your acne type and it has a minimum investment of $160 (this cost is for a whole routine, not just one product). We can give you detailed pricing info at your Clear Skin Discovery Session.




What is The Clear Discovery Package (Step 1)?


The Clear Skin Discovery Package is the first step in your journey to getting clear, it consists of an Acne Consultation and (1) Introductory Acne Treatment. In this session, we will determine the type of acne you have, and we’ll perform a full lifestyle audit to determine what’s causing, triggering and aggravating your acne. We will provide you with useful recommendations on diet, medications/supplements, habits, lifestyle adjustments and we will provide you with a proper skincare routine that is specific to your skin and acne type so you can begin to start treating your acne (product cost is additional).




Do I have to use your products? / Can I use my current skincare products?


People underestimate the power of good skin care (you need skin care that suits your acne and skin type). You would be surprised to hear that your current skin care products are probably aggravating your acne, this is a common acne trigger (we will determine this during the Clear Skin Discovery Session). Our recommended home care regimen is customized and specific to your skin and acne type and is a critical part in getting clear. Our product recommendations are clinical grade, contain no pore clogging ingredients and the whole line is specially formulated for acne prone skin.




What is Acne Bootcamp (Step 2)?


Acne Bootcamp is the second step in your journey to get clear. Acne Bootcamp consists of a series of bi-monthly treatments for 3 – 4 months (depending on your type of acne). Home care products is also mandatory in this program. A proper skin care routine is critical in helping you get clear. A common acne trigger is using incorrect skin care products. People often use products containing pore clogging ingredients that are incorrect for their skin and acne type.




How much do home care products cost?


Our recommended home care regimen consists of 4 to 6 products. Home care regimen cost varies depending on your acne type and it has a minimum investment of $160 (this cost is for a whole routine, not just one product).




How long will it take to get clear?


Acne can’t be cured overnight, not from one product, not from one treatment - it takes time. Most cases clear in 3 to 4 months. Acne takes up to 90 days to form, so it could take at least 90 days to see improvements while participating in the Acne Bootcamp. The success of the program is dependent on whether you follow all our recommendations or not. Those who are diligent with their home care and follows all our recommendations have the best results.




Will my acne get worse before it gets better?


Some clients experience purging, in the beginning of the Acne Bootcamp. If you purge, it doesn’t mean the program isn’t working. It means you’ve had acne forming under the surface this whole time (and your new product routine is helping these breakouts reach the surface at a faster rate. Once the breakouts reach the surface, your products and treatments will help clear them. Every client is different, not all clients experience purging. If you experience purging, I can assure you that it’s a normal part of the acne-clearing process and you’ll get through it!




I want to clear my acne but I can’t afford acne bootcamp at this time?


We would suggest booking in for the Clear Skin Discovery Package so you can learn more about what’s triggering and aggravating your acne and investing in our recommended home care products. You can treat your acne on your own at home with the correct products if your motivated and consistent and follow our recommendations from the consult. Just be aware it takes longer to get clear without treatments. The Acne Bootcamp can clear your skin in 3 – 4 months with a 90% success rate.




Will this help with dark spots, acne scarring?


The acne treatment can lighten PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) or dark spots from acne. However, if you have pitted acne scarring, you will most likely need a series of microneedling for that. Please be aware if you still have active acne, you are ineligible for microneedling. It is also best to resolve your acne first to get to the root cause, as this is what is causing the hyperpigmentation/dark spots.




How does this compare to Accutane and antibiotics?


We’ve helped clients who has been on 2 rounds of Accutane/antibiotics. For some people, their acne just comes back after they are finished their medication. Acne is an inherited condition of the pores. When someone is prone to acne, their pores clog with dead skin cells much faster than normal. Healthy pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore, but acne-prone pores shed up to five layers of dead skin cells per day. The body just can’t keep up with keeping the pore clear. Technically, this is called “retention hyperkeratosis” — dead skin cells shedding more quickly than the pore can expel them. We personally don’t think you need antibiotics for that. Since acne is primarily an inherited dead skin cell problem, the solution lies in products that penetrate and unclog the pore and prevent dead skin cells from building up, so you can prevent future acne from forming. Antibiotics only deals with the bacteria associated with acne and does not address the main issue, which is retention hyperkeratosis. You most likely have several acne triggers; your diet, habits, medications/supplements, pore clogging ingredients in skin care that are causing you to breakout. Antibiotics does not address all these other triggers. In our Acne Bootcamp we will determine what all your acne triggers are and provide you with recommended lifestyle adjustments. Although Accutane and prescription acne meds are effective for some people, it’s not safe to be taking long term due to its serious side effects. Some side effects include: possible birth defects, depression, psychosis, Crohn’s disease, internal organ damage, muscle and bone loss, central nervous system damage and immune system disorders – to name a few. Side effects from our acne treatments are minimal, just the occasional dry skin that can be resolved with moisturizer.




How much does the Bootcamp cost?


Bootcamp cost varies depending on your acne type, we have 3 packages that suits your budget (it’s a lot more affordable than you think). Home care regimen has a minimum investment of $160 (this cost is for a whole routine, not just one product). We can give you detailed pricing info at your Clear Skin Discovery Session.




I’m ready to get started, what do I do next?

Will I need to change my diet?


Although this is not a dietary program, your acne specialist will go over certain foods that may be contributing to the severity of your breakouts. You'll be provided a simple list of the key foods that can be problematic for acne prone skin so you can make informed decisions regarding your dietary choices. We do recommend you at least cut back on these foods.
