What Is Acne?

Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores where dead skin cells shed much faster than normal. Normal pores shed approximately 1 layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. Acne-prone pores shed up to 5 layers of dead skin cells per day, causing buildup. This buildup forms a microcomedone, which is where all acne lesions begin. That microcomedone turns into blackheads or whiteheads under the skin; and if bacteria is present, it feeds on the dead skin cells and oil, creating inflamed pimples or pustules, and possibly cysts. This process can take up to 90 days

How Long Is The Clearing Process?

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 protocol will keep the new acne from forming that would surface 90 days from now. In most cases, the Face Reality Skincare Program will have your acne under control in about 3 to 6 months, depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne take longer to clear. Your Acne Expert will customize a home care routine that takes at least 5 things into consideration: acne type, skin type, skin color, skin sensitivity and environment. The biggest part of the clearing process is your commitment to applying your home care routine as instructed and following recommended lifestyle where possible.

  • Use your customized routine of home care products exactly as directed
  • Receive treatments and/or check-in with your Acne Expert every 2 weeks
  • Follow any recommended adjustments to your home care routine as directed
  • Follow lifestyle recommendations where possible, including diet, stress management, and pore-clogging
  • ingredients in skin, hair, and cosmetic products
