Acne & Rosacea Treatments
STOP! Please read through the information completely before scheduling. When scheduling new acne appointments YOU MUST schedule your follow up appointments in 2-3 week increments for 5-6 appointments. If you do not schedule your follow up appointments at time of original booking I will contact you to do so. If I do not hear back within specified time the original appointment will be canceled. If you have any questions please reach out to me prior to scheduling.
If you have an FSA (Flexible Spending Account) through your employer, your acne treatments may be covered. If this is something you are interested in finding out please contact your employer. When you come in for your appointment I will supply the necessary documentation/itemized receipts for reimbursement.
FIRST APPOINTMENT CONSULT/TREATMENT
$130 1.5 hours
This is what to expect from your first appointment
I will consult with you regarding your experience and your prior treatments to analyze your acne and give you a lot of useful information regarding products, diet, supplements, medications and how they play a role in acne. I take preliminary pictures to track progress through your acne treatment journey. I will test your skin for sensitivities, make product recommendations and show you exactly how to use the products. Product purchase is a requirement in order to come in for treatments. You will not see results if you do not follow recommended protocol, so keep that in mind. Your treatment, will include exfoliation by means of peels or enzymes, extractions and Acne Clear Rx Light Therapy
I use my own specialty acne formulas which are made in an FDA compliant lab. Using the prescribed home care is going to be 85% of what you do to get clear and maintain clear skin. Coming in for office treatments every 2 weeks and adjusting home care product usage per recommendations for the suggested amount of time is also a crucial part of this system. It requires time and commitment on both of our parts, so think of me as your acne treatment coach! This program is also awesome for Acne Rosacea as well. Acne can be managed very easily by an acne specialist and should never be treated with antibiotics (unless staph is suspected). I have succesfully cleared clients who were at the point they were contemplating taking the very toxic medication Accutane, before seeing me as their last ditch effort. People who are prone to acne have many things systemically going on which is where the detective work comes into play.
Initial product purchase typically runs approximately $175. Product purchase is a requirement for joining my acne program.
If you are not in the area I offer Skype/Face Time consults and can mail product anywhere in the US.
* If you are on any Rx acne or rosacea medications you will need to discontinue using them 14 days prior to coming in. Once you start the program you will only be using the ASH Skin Acne Products, no exceptions!
*Treat your acne appointments like a dental or medical appointment! I do not offer appointments after school hours and my weekend appointments fill up months in advance. Your treatments will typically take on average 30-45minutes and returning to school or work should never be an issue.
