The before and after pictures represent noninflamed acne.
Noninflamed acne has the following characteristics:
- dull sluggish appearance
- some pimples/pustules but not as many as inflamed acne
- excessive oil
- tissue congestion
- skin generally not sensitive or reactive
Kalen has the toughest kind of acne to get under control, so I decided to get quite aggressive with her skin right from the start. She has noninflamed resistive type of acne and her skin was not at all sensitive, so I put her on very strong home-care right from the beginning and had her come in for a medium-depth “Propeel” (a TCA peel from Vivant Pharmaceuticals). Her skin cleared up in about ten weeks. We are now working to lift her sun damage from the years she lived in Maui.
I have had problem skin since 6th grade and it was always really frustrating!! I never felt beautiful or confident! I even had a dermatologist nurse tell me I was never going to have clear skin. I had tried everything, I was beginning to think that nurse was right. Then I saw the ad for face reality and was skeptical but I had already spent thousands of dollars on things that didn’t work so why not try one more. I was really surprised when Laura guaranteed I would have clear skin. On my first visit she told me I had grade two acne which is the hardest to get rid of, so I was a little bummed. The amazing part was that after I started using her products my acne cleared up, even she was amazed at how fast it worked!!! It is great that I don’t feel scared to go out without make-up any more and I get compliments on my skin! I’m so thankful because I feel like I have a normal life now. Acne can be totally devastating and I know first hand! I wanted to just hide-out when I had acne now I don’t have to worry about my skin at all it is totally AWESOME!!! – Kalen W.
Elena came to us with noninflamed acne. She is a swimming instructor and spends all day in the pool. Some swimming pool disinfectants can contain “iodides” which can exacerbate acne conditions. We put her on an home care regimen of exfoliants and anti-bacterials which helps to keep her acne under control.
If you need help to clear up your skin, look no further. Face Reality is the best place to go. They have awesome customer service with no pressure. Unlike products like Proactive or Murad, which is similar to the “one size fits all” type scenario, Face Reality customizes a plan just for you, so it is guaranteed to fix any concerns you have.
Staff is friendly and extremely knowledgable and the prices aren’t bad either. About the same as proactive but the products are much better. Plus you get the added benefit of a spa type atmosphere: nice music in ambient lighted rooms. It is very relaxing. You don’t get that from infomercials. So, if you have concerns with your skin, give them a call, I know they can help you, they sure helped me!!! – Elena H.
Holly came to us with severe noninflamed acne – every pore was clogged. We knew that we would have to have a very aggressive treatment plan to get her skin clear. Along with aggressive in-clinic peels and homecare that didn’t allow her pores to clog up, we got her acne under control in about four months.
“I absolutely adore Laura and Patrick. I feel like Laura saved my life! I had the worst acne and she made my skin pretty again and I love her to death for it! The rest of the staff is extremely knowledgeable and nice. It is a little expensive, but so worth it. Face Reality is the best in my book.” – Holly F.
