Face Reality Acne Program

adult acne

Acne is definitely a four-letter word for people who suffer with it. It is an inherited disorder of the pores – pores that want to sludge up with dead skin cells much like a clogged drain in your sink. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms congestion under the skin which are noninflamed acne lesions (blackheads and/or whiteheads; and if bacteria are present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), you will get inflamed pimples, pustules and/or cysts.

The good news: acne products can also be anti-aging!

Certified Face Reality Acne Specialist Palm Beach Gardens Laser + Skin by Madison has a clear-skin system that will have your acne under control in about 3-4 months depending on your type of acne. We combine the power of clinical-grade homecare products that are customized for your type of acne and skin with a series of bi-monthly treatments that facilitate the clearing of your skin. We also teach you about other aggravating factors that make you break out – foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores (even professional and prescription products!).

Acne Treatments

We will want to see you every 2 weeks for an acne treatment. It typically takes about 6-8 services over a 3 to 4-month period of time to get you mostly to completely clear.

We will:

  • assess what type of treatment your skin needs when you come in. They will also assess how your home care regimen will be adjusted so that your skin does not over-adapt and stop responding
  • perform an acne treatment with extractions

As you get clear, your treatments will become shorter – there just won’t be as many extractions to do. After your acne is under control, you will simply need to maintain your home care products to keep clear.

Advanced Acne Treatments

We will want to see you every 2 weeks for an acne treatment. It typically takes about 6-8 services over a 3 to 4-month period of time to get you mostly to completely clear.

We will:

  • assess what type of treatment your skin needs when you come in. They will also assess how your home care regimen will be adjusted so that your skin does not over-adapt and stop responding
  • perform an acne treatment with extractions and 30 minutes of LED light therapy

LED blue light therapy helps to kill the acne causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and provide a general rejuvenation effect on the skin. Usually, in the case of inflamed acne, topical products will bring down inflammation rather quickly. However, there are times when the skin needs a little more help in bringing down inflammation. This is where LED can help.

The combination of blue, red and infrared lights in our Celluma panels get down to the core of the acne causing bacteria. The red lights help to reduce inflammation while at the same time, the blue lights help to kill the acne causing bacteria.

This phenomenal add on will enhance your current acne treatment, and help to soothe the skin after receiving extractions.

After your acne is under control, you will simply need to maintain your home care products to keep clear.

Body Acne Treatments

Acne on the body is assessed the same way as on the face. We still test the skin for sensitivity and tolerance to products. Often, the back needs stronger products because the skin is thicker and less sensitive than on the face. (Products not included in price of treatment.)

Acne Rosacea Treatments

Even though Acne Rosacea is not acne, it still responds to an anti-bacterial regimen much the same as acne. It usually clears up much more quickly than acne and will stay clear as long as product use is maintained. We educate you on food and environmental triggers that can make rosacea worse.
