FACE REALITY SKIN CARE™
Real Solutions for Clear Skin
More than 60 million Americans suffer from some form of acne breakouts. Acne affects more than 80% of all teenagers at some time in their lives, and clogged pores comprise more than 25% of all visits to the dermatologist. Acne now has hit epidemic proportions in adults, especially women. What used to be just a teenage problem is now a real challenge in people’s lives. Acne is an actual disease of the pores. It can be caused by certain drugs, medications or exposure to certain chemicals but most acne is an inherited tendency. Dead skin cells are shedding much too quickly in the acne -prone pore. It forms a plug along with sebum and hair and this is where the problem begins. If the body doesn’t see the plug as an invader, then it remains as a non-inflamed lesion, aka blackhead. If it does, then it forms into pimples, pustules and cysts.
Q. I wash my face a lot – why do I still break out?
A. Acne is formed below the surface of the skin and cannot be washed away. To clear acne, you need clinical -strength products that are designed to penetrate the pore, exfoliate the dead skin cells and kill the acne bacteria.
Q. How do I control my acne?
A. Your acne can be controlled through the continued use of Face Reality products and corrective in -clinic treatments for at least the first 12 weeks. Many people see a dramatic difference in their acne in the first month. Once your acne is under control, you must continue to use the products to keep clear. Unfortunately, acne cannot be cured, only controlled.
Q. Why Face Reality acne products?
A. Face Reality Skin Care has developed products that are specifically for the type of acne that you have. Your Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist will know what adjustments to make to your regimen to make sure that your skin does not over adapt to the homecare regimen, pushing it to clear but not irritating or over -drying your skin. This is the fastest way to get your skin clear.
Q. What do the treatments do?
A. Each treatment is customized for the condition of your skin at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need hydration and other times you will need corrective peels to facilitate the clearing of your acne and dark spots. Your Acne Specialist will perform extractions of your acne impactions at every treatment so your skin clears more quickly.
Q. How do I get started?
A. Come in for a consultation where your Acne Specialist will analyze your skin and type of acne. From there they will design a product and treatment regimen designed for your specific skin and acne type. Products alone will not solve your acne problem.
