When it comes to skin, balance is key, and this is exactly where many acne treatments fail. Too often, acne products dry the skin, causing users to give up on the treatment. Or, your skin becomes immune to your products, and they stop working. It’s very important to maintain this delicate balance, so we require Acne Clinic patients to come in every two weeks to review their current homecare routine and to receive an acne treatment based on the current condition of the skin. The acne facial/treatment could change with every visit as skin goes through the stages of its transformation. For example, you could receive a hydrating facial if your skin has become dried, irritated and dehydrated, or you may need an acne peel that has been specifically designed to be very effective yet formulated to eliminate excessive irritation. This means there is no “downtime” for you and no “downtime” from your products either. At each visit, we also perform extractions to help your skin along in the purging process.
