Treat and Clear Acne

The Face Reality TM system has a 95% success rate to treat and clear acne!

What is Face Reality?

Face Reality Skincare is an award-winning acne brand that offers the most effective treatment for even the most stubborn acne cases using Face Reality’s holistic treatment protocol, or what we call “Acne Boot Camp”.

What is the ACNE BOOT CAMP?

Acne is complicated, but we’ve got you covered. Face Reality Acne Boot Camp specializes in treating moderate to severely inflamed, non-inflamed and combination acne. Our Certified Acne Specialists will create a customized program for you that uses both an at-home treatment plan and a series of chemical peel treatments we’ll do at the beauty bar.

Your treatment will look something like this:

  1. Complete a thorough questionnaire online
  2. Initial Consultation – We will review your questionnaire and complete a skin assessment to set you up with an at-home treatment plan. You will use this treatment for 2 weeks.
  3. Acne Face Reality Peel #1 – You’ll come in so your acne expert can evaluate how your skin is responding, apply your first treatment, and determine whether your at-home products need to be adjusted. We’ll see you again in 2 weeks.
  4. Acne Face Reality Peel #2 – Same as above. We will likely strengthen your at-home treatment, and see you again in 2 weeks!
  5. Acne Face Reality Peel #3 – Your last treatment for this bootcamp! You’ll receive another peel, and leave with your last round of at-home products. You’ll continue to use these for 6 weeks, checking in with your acne expert every 2 weeks with photos.

Do we offer Acne Treatments without the bootcamp?

Absolutely. You can book an “Acne Facial” or the individual Acne Face Reality Peels without doing the full boot camp. This is a great option if you have mild acne.

How to get started

Book the Acne Bootcamp Initial Assessment and we’ll take it from there.

skin with acne


Acne is an inherited disorder of the pores – pores that shed dead skin cells much faster than normal. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore.

The acne-prone pore sheds up to five layers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can’t keep up. This forms the microcomedone, the beginning of all acne. Taking up to 90 days, it turns into blackheads or congestion under the skin; or if bacteria is present (which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil), it turns into inflamed pimples or pustules and maybe even cysts. 

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.

The Face Reality Acne System will have your acne under control in about three to six months (in most cases) depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne take longer to clear.

The biggest part of getting your skin clear will be your commitment to doing your home care regimen as instructed and following lifestyle guidelines. 

We assess your skin every two weeks to see if we can make your regimen a bit stronger. We do not want your skin to get used to products, but also not make the regimen so strong that your skin gets dry and irritated. This method will keep your skin clearing up. It’s important to know that if adjustments are not made, your progress may stall.

If for some reason, you cannot make it in for a treatment, you must contact your Acne Specialist to get your next set of instructions for home care adjustment. 

  • Your custom home care regimen, twice daily
  • Treatments and/or assessment from your esthetician every two weeks
  • Home Care Adjustments – consistent adjustments to boost your home care regimen
  • Lifestyle Adjustments – foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and pore-clogging ingredients in skin and hair products.
  • Your progress will be closely monitored by a Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist who will make sure you have the best regimen for your skin.
