As a teenager, you think you are going to grow out of your acne (which sometimes happens). And once you hit your twenties, you think that acne will finally be behind you. But many of us find that acne persists into our thirties, forties and even beyond. Confused, we hit department store counters or visit dermatologists, looking for the one product or treatment that will solve our embarrassing acne problem.

Sadly, the products don’t work. They only drain your time and pocketbook. The result is disappointment, frustration, even anger.

So stop wasting your time and money.

Face Perfection offers a highly tuned acne treatment system that will help you tackle your acne head on, providing strong products with a specific regimen and a balanced approach that’s not overly harsh. In-office treatments help speed the process, but most clients find that their acne clears within a few months. Pretty soon, you won’t remember the humiliation of having acne anymore.

First, let’s bury the myths of what acne is not:

  • It is not due to dirty skin.
  • It is not due to eating chocolate.
  • It is not due to sexual frustrations.
  • It is not just a teenage problem.

So, if these aren’t the reasons, then ….

Q. Why do I have acne?

A. 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.

Q. How do I control my acne?

A. Your acne is best controlled through the continued use of products offered by Face Perfection and corrective in-clinic treatments for at least the first 12 to 16 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 your skin clear.

Q. I prefer to use “natural” products… why should I choose your professional product line?

A. Maybe you have tried “natural acne cures” and an “organic” approach to treat your acne. But if you are still frustrated by regular acne break outs that never seem to completely clear, you must be open to trying a different method.

The clinical acne lines offered at Face Perfection are safe and active home care products that are customized specifically for the type of acne that you have. Krista has been a Certified Acne Specialist since 2014. As a Certified Acne Specialist, she knows what adjustments to make to your regimen to make sure that your skin does not over-adapt to the homecare regimen, while pushing your skin to effectively clear without irritating or over-drying.

Q. What do the in-office treatments do?

A. Each treatment is adapted 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. Krista will perform extractions of your acne impactions at every treatment, as needed, to help your skin clear more quickly.

Q. How do I get started?

A. Schedule an Acne Consultation appointment with Krista to have your skin analyzed and your type of acne classified. From there, she will design a product and treatment regimen for your specific skin and acne type.

Q. What is a Certified Acne Specialist?

A. Certified Acne Specialists are an elite group of estheticians trained by a mentor who studied with renowned dermatologist, Dr. James E. Fulton.

A skin care professional who becomes a Certified Acne Specialist is someone who has studied very specific acne-centered modalities and passed a test to indicate their proficiency. After passing the test to become certified, they are allowed to sell and professionally use specific acne products without requiring the use of prescription medications or dermatologist referral. The treatment methods and products used in this proven method have been carefully honed to help clear thousands of acne sufferers of all ages and ethnicities. Many who have tried prescription topical products, antibiotics, laser and blue light therapy, Accutane™ and a myriad of over-the-counter products, have not gotten and stayed clear prior to trying the program offered by Face Perfection and other Certified Acne Specialists.

By choosing a Certified Acne Specialist, you have taken an important step to getting your skin clear, without the use of prescription therapy.
