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.

Setting up your personal regimen
The most important aspect of the Face Reality system is not just starting with the right products, but learning how to use them.
We test your skin to make sure you are getting the most effective products for your specific 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 and using products that compliment your acne prone skin regimen.
How Is As Important As What
We know that you are used to getting a prescription or products from the store, and then left trying to figure it out all on your own. Your Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist will help you tackle your acne head on, determining what products are needed for your specific regimen and how a balanced approach to application that is not overly harsh will produce the best long term results. In-office treatments speed the process, and with our support, you will find your acne clears up within a few months.
You will learn how to use products slowly at first, so that your skin stays receptive without causing irritation or dehydration. 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.
Your aesthetician will discuss the causes of acne and analyze your skin at the beginning of every appointment to assess which treatment would serve you best. Treatments are performed every two weeks until your skin clears.
Acne Scaring and Acne Laser Treatments
Acne Scar Treatment
Acne scaring at times can seem worse that the acne itself. Rest assured that not only will our acne specialists help you clear your acne, we can help with any scaring that has occurred as well. Scaring occurred from acne will differ in severity greatly and we offer several different treatment options. We will cover this with you in your initial consultation.
Laser Treatment for Acne With ELOS Technology
How it works: Over a series of treatments, acne causing bacteria will be reduced in treated areas and sebaceous glands, while also slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. The result is less breakouts and quicker healing time.
What to expect: Effective treatment requires multiple sessions, and some clients will not see noticeable until half way through a series.
We do Laser Acne treatments for face, neck, chest and back
Laser Treatments for Acne Scarring
Brilliant Bodywork offers Sublative resurfacing treatments to quickly minimize visible scars with little to no downtime. Sublative is neither laser or light-based. Instead this is one-of-a-kind technology that uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency that accelerates the healing process. Sublative penetrates far deeper than creams and peels, and addresses the skins overall tone and texture more effectively than injectables. To find out if these treatments are right for you, contact us to schedule a consultation today.
About Laser Acne Treatment Costs
No two people's skin is the same and not one treatment is right for everyone. Treatment costs will vary depending treatment options and the severity of the acne and/ or scaring. Schedule a consultation to discuss what treatment options and pricing is best for you.

You cannot cure acne. However the good news is 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.

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.
