LUMINOSA ACNE PROGRAM
Acne is the WORST and unfortunately it can appear at any time in someone’s life. Hormonal acne, adult acne, cystic acne, teen acne, or body acne. Regardless of the type of acne you're struggling with, our Face Reality program is proven to help you achieve clear, healthy skin without the harsh side effects of prescription medications.
WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms congestion under the skin which are noninflamed acne lesions (blackheads and/or whiteheads; and if bacteria are present, you will get inflamed pimples, pustules and/or cysts.
There are many triggers or aggravating factors that can contribute to breakouts, such as lifestyle and dietary choices, cosmetics, medications and current home care.
WHAT IS THE ACNE PROGRAM?
Its a series of treatments and products to help you get clear skin and maintain it!
It begins with a consultation and an in-depth skin analysis to determine your skin type, type of acne and tolerance to active products. We will also review potential aggravating factors that may contribute to your breakouts, such as lifestyle and dietary choices, cosmetics, medications and current home care.
This consultation is then followed by a skin assessment and skin sensitivity test. Based on those results, we develop a custom home care regimen customized to your skin and acne type. You will go home with all the instructions and tools you need to achieve clear skin.
The Acne Solutions Program requires commitment. We will be here to coach you but you will be doing all the work for the clarity of your skin. Please be ready to come in for a treatment every 2 weeks over a period of 3-4 months.
CAN I JUST PURCHASE A FEW PRODUCTS OR DO I HAVE TO BUY
YES and NO.
Face Reality's products are not only amazing at helping to clear acne, but anti-aging and exfoliating as well. Anyone may purchase any of the non active products (cleanser, toner, moisturizers and SPF) at any time! If you would like to try the active products (acne exfoliating serums and acne medications) they must be patch tested in an acne consultation appointment.
However, if you are TRULY trying to clear up your skin…just using a few of the products may not work for a few reasons.
1 - It is a combination of products, lifestyle changes and commitment on your part that all work together and help get the skin clear AND maintain it.
2- If you are just using a few products to help clear your breakouts and your other products you’re using at home have pore clogging ingredients….then you will never be fully clear and it will be like fighting an uphill battle!
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL COST?
$95 (1 hr 15 mins) for the initial visit. This would include a consult, your first treatment, product suggestions and instructions and information on diet, pore clogging ingredients and lifestyle.
$75 (30-45 mins) for every treatment going forward every two weeks until the skin is cleared. The treatment would either be a hydrating acne enzyme or an acne peel, depending on what the skin needed that day, extractions, if necessary, and LED light therapy. After that, you will need to stick with the products to keep the skin clear and can schedule appointments for treatments as needed.
*A series of three treatments may be purchased for $180 ($45 savings)*
$130-$150 for 2.5-3 month supply of products
this would typically include 5-6 products (cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, acne medication and SPF)
HOW QUICKLY CAN I SEE RESULTS?
Acne takes between 30 to 90 days to form. A pimple that you see today probably started as a small clogged
pore up to three months ago!
It takes about three to four months to see your skin clear up. Three months worth of acne is going to surface, even when you are using the perfect acne regimen. That regimen is keeping the NEW acne from forming, so you won’t see them surface three months from now. Some types of acne take longer to clear.
The biggest part of getting your skin clear will be your commitment to doing your home care regimen EXACTLY as instructed and following lifestyle guidelines.
