For most people, 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. Learn more about the causes of acne.
The Face Reality System for Acne
Effective Transformation of your skin
The Brilliant Bodywork Acne clinic helps you find your personal path to clearer skin. We work with you in figuring out the treatment or combination of treatments that will work best for your skin type. Welcome to Brilliant Bodywork and the Face Reality System.
Brilliant Bodywork Acne Clinic uses the Face Reality System for clearer skin and to help you get your acne under control in about three to four months, depending on your type of acne.
Bi Weekly Treatment
As you go through your process of achieving clear skin on your face and/or body, you will want to come in for treatments every two weeks. Treatments are for:
- Exfoliating the skin so that home care products can penetrate the pores easily
- Hydrating the skin so that the skin is receptive to your home-care regimen
- Extracting existing acne impactions
- Killing acne bacteria inside the pore
Each bi-weekly acne treatment is specifically focused on what the skin needs at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial and/or anti-inflammatory action.
Face Reality System
The Face Reality System gives you the very best chance for a dramatically improved complexion that can transform your life. At Brilliant Bodywork we combine the power of pharmaceutical-grade products that are customized for your type of acne, with a series of bi-monthly treatments for effective acne clearance.
Each step in Face Reality is customized to your specific acne profile. Each Face Reality treatment is designed to address issues unique to your skin type, eating habits, personal hygiene and body chemistry to address the root cause of your acne.
The Skin Test
We test your skin to make sure you are getting the most effective products for your acne type, skin type, and skin tolerance. It won't be enough just to have the right products – it's all about having the right routine for those products. You will learn how to use products slowly at first, so that your skin stays receptive without causing irritation or dehydration.
Adjusting Treatment To Enhance Results
But skin can become accustomed to products and then become less effective over time – that is why we will adjust your regimen little by little, to get rid of your acne.
Teaching You New Habits
We also teach you about other aggravating factors that make you break out such as foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores (even professional and prescription products).

Read these frequently asked questions about acne and learn how Brilliant Bodywork can help you achieve clearer skin.
You cannot cure acne but you can have clear skin if you know what you are doing. There are a few key concepts that you need to know to get your skin clear and get rid of acne.
- You need to use the right acne products for your type of acne. A product that is good for inflamed acne (pimples, pustules and cysts) will not be good for non-inflamed acne (blackheads and whiteheads)
- You need these products to be strong enough for your type of skin. If they are not, your skin will not change much. If they are too strong, you will irritate and dehydrate your skin; and you will still break out.
- You need to use these products in the right way. It takes strong products to get acne under control, but if you use too much too soon, you will irritate and dehydrate your skin. You must start slowly with strong products.
- You need to account for skin adaptation. This means you cannot allow your skin to get too “used” to products. If you do, then your skin will stop responding and not get clear. It takes adjusting your skin care regimen routinely.
Does this all sound like tricky business? Yes, no doubt that it is.
These are the main reasons you need an acne expert to guide you in the process of getting your skin clear. We know what it takes to get and keep your skin clear and we know how to get rid of acne once and for all!
Our Acne Clinic has a unique system for helping you get clear skin. In working with thousands of acne sufferers, we have learned the fine art of knowing exactly what products to use on your type of skin and your type of acne.
Our system works by taking into account:
- Your skin type
- Your acne type
- Your skin condition
- How fast your skin adapts to products
- Lifestyle considerations that could be affecting your skin.
We test your skin before we give you a home care regimen and give you the strongest home care products that your skin will tolerate, specifically chosen for the type of acne that you have.
Our estheticians always assess your skin condition every time you come in for a treatment. If your skin is irritated and dry from product use, then we will have you back off your routine somewhat for just a few days.
Most importantly, we coach you on how to use your products. Even the best acne products will eventually stop working if you are not using them correctly. Using products too frequently can irritate your skin; not using them enough can slow your progress. One of the most important aspects of our system is our ability to coach you as your skin adapts so that your skin never becomes too used to your home care routine. If you use products the same way for too long, your skin quickly adapts and your acne will return.
While getting your skin clear, we will work together to adjust your home care routine. A well-managed routine will prevent acne from forming in the first place. Our Acne Clinic’s acne specialists know how to finesse the push and pull of managing your regimen. Working together with us, you can and will have clear skin.
If you truly want to get rid of acne, let our experienced acne specialists guide you.
Yes gender and age can be factors in acnetic breakouts. Hormones can play a much larger role in adult females and teens as opposed to adult men. Stress also effects acne in females more often than in males. Lifestyle choices between adults and teens have a great impact on acnetic breakouts as a lack of knowledge in good skin-care affects teens more often than adults. Makeup also plays a huge role for females of all ages. Birth control also plays a significant role in women of child bearing years.
