WHAT IS ACNE?
For most people, acne is an inherited condition of the pores. When someone is prone to acne, their pores clog with dead skin cells much faster than normal. Healthy pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore, but acne-prone pores shed up to five layers of dead skin cells per day. With the right Face Reality products and treatments, Acne can be controlled
WHAT IS CYSTIC ACNE?
Acne Cysts occur when a person not only has an inherited propensity for acne, but also has the inherited propensity for inflammation. Acne Cysts are characterized by large red pustules and cysts. It is very painful and can leave permitted pitted scarring. The good news is that this can be the easiest acne to get under control. The best ingredients to use for cystic pimples are l-mandelic acid, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide (sometimes mixed with sulfur). These products are effective when used in a the correct way. It is important to consult with one of our Acne Specialists to create the best regimen.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ACNE TO CLEAR?
Acne can take up to 90 days to surface. Therefore, it may take about 3-4 months to clear with Face Reality and without the use of prescription medications.
WHAT ARE THE ACNE TYPES?
The three Acne Types are:
Inflamed acne: pimples, pustules, cysts, hot or warm, bleeds easily, sensitive- start slowly with products. Easiest type to treat, since it responds well to products.
Noninflamed acne: dull, sluggish, lots of open and closed comedones, not sensitive or reactive
Combination acne: most common. Combo inflamed acne and noninflamed. Do inflamed protocol first, then non inflamed protocol. Inflamed acne will always clear first. Then be more aggressive with remainder. – not severity of inflamed and noninflamed.
Is Face Reality Safe for Pregnancy?
There are certain ingredients/treatments we would avoid when pregnant or lactating. We can customize your skincare regimen to avoid those products. We always recommend consulting with your doctor before using any active ingredients.
