Tried everything and still have acne? The Acne Bootcamp Program has 90% success rate, FR are the leaders in clearing acne. I've created this exclusive program to set you up with an intense, customized plan that will deliver life-changing results.
The initial investment on products is $100-$150 (Up to 7 products). Most of the products will last roughly 8-12 weeks depending on the product and the regimen that you are placed on. The active ingredient products are purposefully put in smaller containers as these will be strengthened at different points in your treatment plan.
The cost of treatments/follow up treatments are $70. It typically takes about six treatments over a 3-month period of time to see results. We have series of three treatments starting at $195. If you come in for just a consultation, the cost is $50. If you choose not to move forward, the consultation fee is non-refundable. If you come in for a consultation and treatment, which is what most people do, the cost is $110.00 (best option for those who are serious and ready to get started).
The first consultation and treatment appointment is scheduled for about 1 ½ hours and subsequent appointments are 30- 45 minutes. When you start to get clearer and there are fewer extractions to do, treatments will take less and less time.
- We consult with you regarding your experience and any prior treatments that you have had, (if any).
- We analyze your acne and help you figure out what is causing your particular condition.
You will receive useful information regarding products, diet recommendations, medications etc.,
- We will take some preliminary pictures to track your progress; about once a month.
- Your skin will be tested for sensitivities.
- You will receive a routine suited for your acne type, and we will show you how to use the products.
- If you are getting a treatment, we will perform the treatment, which includes a mild corrective peel with extractions, high frequency, and LED or a gentle enzyme treatment with steam high frequency, LED and extractions.
*Generally speaking, neither of these are uncomfortable. You may or may not experience some mild peeling after these treatments.
It’s the fastest way to get you clear – We extract the current lesions out and the home care prevents the new ones from forming. It takes up to 90 days for acne to form and reach the surface of your skin, so in the 3-4 months that we are working with you, you will see breakouts. These are just old lesions coming to the surface that we will extract every two weeks.
Extractions can cause slight discomfort, but the process is tolerable and crucial for the processing of acne to promote the healing process.
Yes, this is part of the program. There are too many brands in the marketplace that have pore-clogging ingredients in them. To ensure clear skin, We recommend using FR products alone. Acne is tricky enough to treat – we do not want to take any chances with other potentially harmful or comedogenic products.
Yes. If you live close enough to the clinic, it is in your best interest to get acne treatments. That is the fastest way to get clear; and also helps us to monitor your home care to get you clear in the safest and fastest way possible.
You will be required to stop your prescription products, two-four weeks before starting on the program. I have found that they make the skin much too sensitive to use the system. Therefore I generally do not recommend the use of any of them with our regimen. Quite simply, you would have to choose between our program or the prescription products that you are using.
I will take clients at whatever age they are breaking out. Acne does not discriminate – neither do I. Minors need to be accompanied by an adult and guardians need to give consent to the clinic in-order to treat minors.
I can still treat you for acne, but first you will have to get a list from your doctor as to what ingredients they want you to avoid.
It depends on what you mean by scarring? If you have dark spots, then yes, those will be treated along with the acne. If you have pitted scars, then no that is treated by a medical doctor.
Aside from acne; I treat skin for prevention and age-management. Please visit the treatments section to see a full list of treatments for face and body.
