Can I Get Acne As An Adult?
Typically, acne is most commonly linked to the changes in hormone levels which is why it becomes most prominent during the teenage years.
However, we see a lot of clients with cystic acne at our studio. Cystic acne often occurs in women during pregnancy, menopause or other hormonal changes.
Cystic acne typically consists of painful cysts under the skin which do not come to a head. While it can be difficult to eliminate cystic acne, we see wonderful results with our acne treatmens.

I've Seen Multiple Dermatologists Without Results. Help!
Clearing up acne is actually quite easy and fast when it is approached in the correct way. Successful clearing of acne largely depends on identifying the type of acne you have. Once you know your type, you can use the correct products and treatment methods to fight it. Yes, there are different types of acne and each type requires a different approach. Some types need more anti-bacterial action, while other types need to focus more on deep, professional exfoliation through chemical peels. Another key component of acne that we address the bodies ability to quickly adapt to homecare products. We make periodic adjustments to the strength and the order you use your products to prevent product adaption.
What Should I Expect With Acne Treatments?
On average it takes 6-8 acne treatments, booked 2 weeks apart in order to get clear so that means most clients can be clear in as little as 3-4 months. A small percentage of clients have more stubborn acne so getting clear may take longer in those cases. We are not able to completely clear up clients that are not compliant with our daily homecare product protocol, lifestyle changes or who do not come in every 2 weeks for their treatment.
What is Maintenance To Keep My Skin Clear?
On average it takes 6-8 initial acne treatments to get clear skin, after that you just have to continue using your homecare products to prevent new acne from forming. We cannot permanently cure acne, however once you reach the maintenance phase, you can continue to keep it at bay by being diligent with your homecare routine.
What To Expect During the Acne Treatments.
During your acne treatment, it is normal for the skin to look and feel dry. Most clients will experience flaking skin for about 2-3 days following the professional treatments. It is important for clients not to be aggressive in scrubbing off or rubbing off the flaking skin or else irritation and hyperpigmentation can result. Once clients are done with the treatment program and are on maintenance, most find that their skin hydration returns to normal.
I Have Acne and Hyperpigmentation. Will You Help With Both?
Yes, our acne treatments and homecare products address both acne and hyperpigmentation at the same time. Generally, the acne will clear up much faster than the hyperpigmentation, but most clients will still see noticeable fading of their pigmentation issues. Once you are clear of acne, you may opt to receive our Dark Spot Treatments to address any residual hyperpigmentation.
What is Cost of Acne Treatments?
Each acne, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation treatment is $185. The average cost of an initial product kit is $150 – $200. As you need to replenish individual products, the cost can be anywhere from $15 to $45 depending on the product needed.
Will Insurance Pay?
We are a skincare practice and not a dermatologist office; therefore, insurance will not cover your expenses. However, many of our clients can be reimbursed for their expenses if they have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) through their employer. All plans are different, and you should discuss this with your FSA administrator to see what their specific qualifications are. We cannot make any promises that your FSA will cover our treatments and products.
