The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. 20min $25 | 40min $50
Frequently Asked Questions
Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores. The acne pore sheds dead skin cells at an accelerated rate and the body just cannot keep up. This forms the microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days, it turns into blackheads or congestion under the skin; or if the bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts.
Because it takes up to 90 days for acne to form, you may still have 90 days of acne that will surface. Our acne products and protocol will help keep the new acne from forming and that would surface 90 days from now. The Face Reality Acne System will have your acne under control in about 3 to 6 months (in most cases) depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne take longer to clear. Your Acne Specialist will customize a home care regime by considering the following – your type of acne, your skin type, your skin color, your skin sensitivity, and your environment. The biggest part of getting your skin clear will be your commitment to doing your home care regimen as instructed and following lifestyle guidelines.
- Follow your custom home care regimen twice daily.
- See your Skincare Specialist every two weeks for treatments/and or assessment.
- Homecare Adjustments – consistent adjustments will be made to boost your home care regimen.
- Lifestyle Adjustments-foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and pore-clogging ingredients in skin and hair products. You will want to eliminate anything that may be contributing to your acne.
Your Face Reality Certified Acne Specialists, we will monitor your progress closely and make sure you have the best treatment protocol for your skin. Adjustments to your treatments and home care will be made, if necessary. We are committed to getting your skin healthy and clear, and will be available to guide, educate and answer questions throughout the process.
We assess your skin every two weeks to see if we can make your regimen a bit stronger. We do not want your skin to get used to products, but also not make the regimen so strong that your skin gets dry and irritated. This method will keep your skin clearing up. It’s important to know that if adjustments are not made, your progress may stall. If for some reason, you cannot make it in for a treatment, you must contact us to get your next set of instructions for home care adjustments.
Home care is a requirement of this program, and we will not be able to treat you if you are unable to commit to using the Face Reality Acne products at home, as instructed. Expect to invest $150+ on home care products at your first visit. Members save 10% off all retail!!
Your suggested treatment protocol is bi-weekly and will consist of mild corrective peels which help to boost the performance of your home care products. You will also receive steam, extractions, high frequency, and anything your skin may need. Your progress will be documented, and adjustments to home care may be made
- The Face Reality Skincare line offers a range of products in different strengths that can be customized to treat your specific type of acne and severity (it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach).
- You have a personal acne expert to coach you through your specific skin problems. She is available to answer your questions anytime and walk with you every step of the way.
- We adjust your home-care routine every few weeks to “push” your skin to clear faster. (This takes monitoring so that skin doesn’t get too dry or irritated).
- The system addresses all aspects of getting your skin clear (lifestyle, diet, hyperkeratosis, bacteria), not just one area.
What most people consider acne “scars” are actually red, purple or brown marks left behind by old acne lesions. These are not true acne scars. This is called Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) and can be treated at our clinic with a series of light chemical peels and the right home-care products to lighten these marks. True acne scars are deeper and may look like an indentation or pitting. These will need to be treated with microneedling and or laser skin resurfacing treatments available here at Beauty Lounge Medical Spa. Acne members receive discounted pricing!
Many acne products you find at the drugstore that claim to be good for acne actually contain pore-clogging ingredients or simply stop working (if they help at all). Face Reality’s products are specifically formulated for acneic skin and are guaranteed not to clog pores. The products contain pharmaceutical grade ingredients that clear current acne and prevent pores from filling up again.
