Have You Tried Everything To Get Clear Skin?

Are You Looking For A Drug Free Alternative?

If you have found your way here and have been dealing with acne for an exhausting amount of time, let me help by telling you there is an effective alternative way to clearing skin and it is called Face Reality.

What is Acne?

Acne is an inherited disorder of the pres-pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal.  Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore.  The acne-prone sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up.  This forms the microcomedones, the beginning of all acne.  Taking up to 90 days, it turns into a blackhead or congestion under the skin: or if bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on dead skin cells and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts.

How Long Will It Take To Clear?

Because it takes up to 90 days for acne to form, you may still have 90 days of acne that will surface.  Our acne products and protocols will keep the new acne from forming that would surface 90 days from now.  The Face Reality Acne System will have your acne under control in about 3-6 months (in most cases) depending on your type of acne.  Some types of acne take longer to clear.

Your Acne Program Will Consist Of:     

*Home care applied twice daily

*In office mild corrective peel treatments every 2 weeks

*Home Care Adjustments-consistent adjustments to boost your home care regimen every.

*Lifestyle Adjustments- foods, medications, cosmetics, stress and pore clogging ingredients in skin and hair products.

The original Face Reality Acne Clinic is located in South San Francisco and created by Laura Cookey – A Nationally Recognized Acne Expert.
