Holistic Acne Consultation- $55 (1 hour)
For new clients, during the consultation, we will do the following:
- Determine your acne types (inflamed, non-flamed or combination) and skin tolerance.
- Evaluate the hormones, digestive system and stress levels for imbalances that may be triggering acne.
- Recommend herbs and supplements to help re-balance the body from the inside out.
- Recommend the home care products and in-office treatments that you will need to get clear.
- Educate you on the lifestyle habits and choices that aggravate acne- food, birth control pills (they do not always help acne), medications, prescriptions,and stress. Please be prepared to make some lifestyle changes. If you do, you will see results.
- ALCAT Food Sensitivity Testing available upon request or recommended if needed.
- Provide you with a packet of information on everything we went over and your customized skin clearing plan.
After your consultation, you will be given a full skin care regimen which consists of a 3-5 step process morning and evening.
Please note, this is a 3-month program that consists of coming in every 2-3 weeks for treatments in addition to receiving changes to your regimen.
Expect to pay $125-150 for a complete topical home care program plus the cost of additional herbs or supplements at your first visit. Acne safe make-up and haircare are also extra. Some of the skincare products will last for the full length of the 3-month program. We will also change and/or add in products as we go. After being on the program for two weeks, we will add a product or two to your regimen every two weeks for the duration of the program.
Individual products range from $18-38 (on average). The total investment to get clear, over the 3 months, is $800-1100 on average. A maintenance regimen will then be recommended so that you stay clear.
Acne Treatments (performed during the 3-month program)
To facilitate acne clearing and pore cleansing, facial peel treatments must be performed every two weeks for 12 weeks. We will change how you use your home care products at each acne treatment to keep challenging the skin so it never adapts to the products. During this time, usually within 6-8 weeks, you will see significant changes in your skin. And by the 7th treatment, you should be 85-95% clear. Treatments are for:
- Keeping the skin exfoliated so that your products penetrate as deeply into the pores as possible
- Hydrating and nourishing the skin
- Extracting blackheads, whiteheads and impacted acne lesions
- Killing p. acne bacteria that reside in the pores
At the beginning of every treatment, we will analyze your skin to determine what type of treatment is best. Treatments are continued every two weeks until your skin is clear.
After the acne is mostly cleared, you will maintain your clear skin with a maintenance regimen at home. Coming in every 6-8 weeks for a “tune-up” is highly recommended.

- You must be willing to use your products and get in-office treatments consistently. I cannot stress this enough!
- This program has a 90% success rate with clients who follow it accordingly. If you cannot commit to the full program (12-16 weeks, usually about 6 treatments and home care costs), then please do not participate until you are ready.
- You must be willing to use ONLY the Face Reality prescribed home care. Everything else that is not approved (aka products containing pore clogging ingredients) will have to be set aside. The Face Reality products were all formulated to work in a specific order and to work together. If products from outside the regimen were to be used, this would slow your ability to get clear and is the reason you are not clear now.
- You must be willing to stop prescribed topical products (Retin-A/Tretinoin, topical antibiotics, Differin, Benzyl Peroxide, etc). You also cannot have used Accutane in the last 2 months.
- You must be ready to get clearer skin 🙂
