Acne is a condition of the pores. It begins when dead skin cells shed way too quickly in acne-prone pores. 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, in other words a blackhead. If it does, then it forms into pimples, pustules and cysts. Acne is not necessarily inherited. Whether your parents had acne or not, you could still be prone to it.
After our initial evaluation, we will customize an at-home product protocol and treatment program for your specific skin type. These particular products will penetrate the pore, exfoliate the dead skin cells and kill the acne bacteria. However, this is not an overnight solution to your skin problems. This will require a commitment not only from you, but from us as well!*
The program can take 3-6 months to get your skin clear, as eruptions below the surface of the skin can take up to 90 days to produce a lesion. However, it is not uncommon for many people to 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 your skin clear. Unfortunately, acne cannot be cured, only controlled.*
It is important to note that the products alone cannot solve your acne problem. You will also need our expert guidance to help you GET clear and STAY clear!*
It’s hard enough to raise a teenager, but add acne and it takes it to a different level. It only took about 1 1/2 years for acne to damage his skin to deep scarring. We went to multiple doctors, used all of the prescriptions and creams before we finally went to Carleen. The problem was his gut. We had to clean it up and found out he can’t tolerate dairy. It wasn’t puberty, hygiene, sports, etc. You can treat acne holistically without meds. Reach out to me if you want more info...Or if your family, friend, neighbor, child, etc are struggling to find a solution. I’m happy to share our experience.
