Skin by Kim utilizes the Face Reality Acne Program which specializes in treating moderate to severe-inflamed, non-inflamed and combination acne. It has a clear-skin system that will have your acne under control in about three to four months, depending on your type of acne. The program combines the power of clinical-grade home-care products that are customized for your type of acne and skin with a series of bi-monthly or monthly treatments that will help clear up your skin.
You will also learn 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.
The first step to clear skin begins with a virtual or in-person consultation. You'll complete an intake form before your appointment, and we'll spend time talking about what Acne is, your skin type and Acne type, and lifestyle factors that may be contributing. We'll conduct a sensitivity test and determine the proper home care regimen for you.
Your home care regimen is the most crucial part of the program, as your success is directly tied to you doing your routine every day, morning, and night! You will also receive an informational packet on your new products and how to use them, lifestyle considerations, and a list of pore-clogging ingredients to check against everything you currently use.
Treatments help your acne heal much quicker. They consist of an enzyme and or a peel, extractions , high frequency, and LED light therapy. If you cannot come in for treatments, we'll need to do virtual check-ins to monitor your progress, address any concerns and adjust your home care routine.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND ON MY HOMECARE REGIMEN? Plan to spend around $150-$200 on your new routine.
CAN ANYONE PARTICIPATE IN THE ACNE PROGRAM? The program is safe for all ages, genders, and races. From very mild acne to severe acne.
WILL I NEED TO MAKE CHANGES TO MY DIET? Not necessarily. I'll give you a list of lifestyle factors that may affect your success. You can choose to start by focusing on your skincare routine first if it is too overwhelming. Eliminating certain foods can be a part of your long-term clear skin strategy!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET CLEAR? Everyone is different, but most clients clear within 3-6 months. Some may clear quicker, and some may take longer.
WHAT DOES AN ACNE TREATMENT APPOINTMENT INCLUDE? An acne treatment consists of a double cleanse, a hydrating enzyme and/or mild peel treatment, extractions (if needed), high-frequency and/or LED light therapy. It may include sensitivity testing for new product and homecare adjustments.
WHAT WILL MY ROUTINE BE LIKE? Most people have 4-6 steps in AM & PM. Your routine may consist of a cleanser, toner, 2 serums, moisturizer, Acne Med, and SPF.
CAN I JUST DO THE TREATMENTS? Unfortunately, no! 80% of the program consists of you doing your homecare regimen every day. If anything, we can opt to do a homecare plan only.
CAN I PARTICIPATE IN ACNE BOOTCAMP IF I'M PREGANANT/NURSING? Yes! Some aspects will need to be avoided, but you can safely participate in treatments and homecare. You'll be encouraged to share program info with your doctor for full approval.
