ACNE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
The Integrity Skin Care Acne Management Program is a 12 week program of 6 bi-weekly acne treatments.
This program is beneficial for those with severe acne who would like to avoid the use of Accutane.
In most cases, Accutane is not necessary, as oil production is not the direct cause of acne.
You will receive education on acne, as well as nutritional guidance, and strict homecare instructions.
When you come in to see us, we will evaluate your skin and explain to you what your skin is doing and why it is doing what it's doing.
Be prepared to talk about your diet and lifestyle as these things affect your acne.
We will work out an acne treatment program and home care regimen to help your skin.
We will continue to work with you and your skin to help you improve the condition.
It is important to not get stressed, you cannot stop spots but you can improve how many you have, how big they get, and the marks they leave. Once you understand your own skin and know you are in control of your skin, your stress levels will reduce which will aid in helping your skin.
There is a reason why the skin does what it does. The main problems with acne are:
1. Internal inflammation (diet/stress)
2. A disturbed acid mantle (overexfoliation)
3. Over production of skin cells (a genetic trait)
4. Sebum over-production (diet and hormone related)
5. The follicles become blocked by thick sebum and dead skin cells (nutrition/hydration/skincare)
6. A skin bacteria called c. acnes can infect the blocked follicle and cause inflammation (symptom of above)
Our Integrity Skin Care Acne Management Program uses specific non-comedogenic products in treatment and home care. You will be expected to purchase home care at your first visit and be expected to use it consistently to clear your acne. You will also be expected to follow an in clinic treatment regimen that consists of acne treatments every two weeks that include extractions, and possibly LED treatment.
ALL NEW CLIENTS *MUST* HAVE A CONSULTATION AND PURCHASE OUR ACNE SAFE PRODUCTS AT THEIR FIRST CLINIC VISIT.

Each acne treatment has a specific focus for what the skin needs at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial and/or anti-inflammatory action. We will analyze your skin at the beginning of every treatment to assess which treatment would serve you best. You will be required to purchase our professional products to address your acne.
