What is Skin Spa's Acne Bootcamp?
It's a comprehensive program where you learn to care for your skin, attend regular in-office therapeutic acne treatments, and use effective home care products to quickly clear your acne and keep you clear.
How successful is it?
Clients who come to their regular appointments and diligently use their home care products achieve clear skin and remain clear 95% of the time.
Why is it different from other acne products and programs?
Skin Spa's Acne Bootcamp is one the most integrated acne programs available. During your consultation, you'll learn about a number of factors that can exacerbate acne - including lifestyle, nutrition, drugs, and product choices. Every product is genuinely non-pore clogging in nature. I know - lots of products say that, but these actually ARE non-pore clogging. (By the way - Did you know Cetaphil, which is commonly recommended by dermatologists, has pore clogging ingredients?)
What support will I have to be successful?
You will be given a myriad of resources when you start the program so you can adjust lifestyle, nutrition, and product usage. You'll come in for regular appointments and we'll chat each time about your progress. As your skin needs a change in products or treatment protocol, I'll guide you through that. Getting and keeping you clear is your biggest goal - and it's mine as well.
How is Skin Spa different from other clinics?
Skin Spa is the only clinic in Utah to offer comprehensive acne care. We are the only clinic to carry an entire line of acne-safe makeup and I can custom blend a foundation especially for your skin. I also carry supplements and vegan protein powder to help with dietary needs. Skin Spa offers high frequency and LED light therapy for acne care and microneedling to treat acne scars. I also have a colleague in my office who is a nurse practitioner you may see for hormone therapy and other health-related issues.
What about my acne scars?
As your acne clears, your regular treatments and home care will be helping to reduce scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots, red scarring). Those who have pitted scars will be amazed at how effective a series of microneedling can be.
How long will it take to get clear?
You will start seeing results within the first few weeks. Significant clearing usually takes about 3 months for those that come to all appointments, are diligent with prescribed home care, and avoid other makeup and products containing pore clogging ingredients.
Will I stay clear?
Yes. My goal is not only to get you clear, but to keep you clear. In office appointments will be reduced as your skin clears, with a goal of keeping you clear with continued home care use.
Why shouldn't I just take Accutane or other medications?
Accutane and other oral medications typically prescribed for acne can help you achieve clear skin, but can come with a long list of dangerous side effects. In fact, the side effects of Accutane can last for years. Often times, once medications are stopped, acne comes back and other medications are prescribed. Why not spend the time to learn what actually causes your acne and how to care for your skin have a lifetime of clear skin?
How much will I spend on treatment?
Each treatment is $75. Discounted packages are available when 3 or more treatments are purchased at one time. The first set of acne home care products averages $140. These products last about 3 months. Depending on your insurance plan, Skin Spa's program and products may be comparable to co-pays, deductibles, and prescription costs you would incur by seeing a dermatologist.
Does Skin Spa take HSA plan cards?
Some clients HSA cards have been accepted, and some have been declined. It just depends on your insurance. Please realize, though, that I'm an aesthetician and not a physician.
Still have more questions?
You can come in for an acne consultation. This is a 45 minute appointment to fully asses your skin and provide information about the type of acne you have, the causes, and how we can treat it. The cost is $50. However, if you have you first acne peel at the same time, the cost of the consultation is reduced to only $10.
