A professional and personal approach to clear skin.

Have you wished for clearer skin for years? Or have you experienced breakouts after a pregnancy? Are you frustrated with acne products that don’t work or harsh prescriptions that do more harm than good?

The Acne Boot camp at The Skin Care Studio is designed to help you achieve clearer skin in approximately three months. As a professionally licensed Esthetician and Certified Acne Specialist, I will guide you through a new routine that combines professional acne treatments with a custom home-care routine that gives you the tools and instructions needed to achieve clearer skin.


Your 1st Visit  Initial Assessment and Treatment: Boot camp begins with a thorough skincare assessment. We will determine your particular skin and acne type in order to develop your professional treatment plan and custom home care routine. We’ll discuss dietary and lifestyle factors that trigger breakouts. Dispel acne myths and discover what truly causes acne. Your Custom Acne Clearing Facial includes deep pore cleansing, exfoliation (enzyme or chemical peel), extractions, an anti- inflammatory treatment and LED Light Therapy to help clear and heal the skin. 60 minutes/$120

BEFORE YOUR FIRST VISIT: No prescription topical products (i.e., Differin, Retin A, Clindamycin, Epiduo, etc.) for two weeks prior to your appointment. No Accutane or equivalents for at least 6 months prior to your appointment.

Ongoing Acne Clearing Facials: 50 Minutes/$95

As you progress through Boot camp, we will re-assess your skin and identify the most corrective course of treatment. You may receive an enzyme or chemical peel, extractions, hydration or other treatments to smooth uneven texture and reduce redness from old acne, while keeping new acne from developing.

Because your daily home care routine is a critical part of becoming clear, you will also continue to receive ongoing coaching on home-care protocol, diet and lifestyle at every visit.

NOTE: The cost of your custom home-care products is not included in the initial assessment or subsequent facials. Expect to invest around $175 for the home-care products needed to complete your Boot camp.

Achieving Clear. And Staying Clear. While everyone is different, within three months, you should expect skin that is much more clear and smooth. To stay in the clear, and ahead of any issues, most clients continue once-a-month professional treatments.

Teen Acne Teens require extra support and encouragement as they work on clearing their skin. I reserve after school appointment times to work with teenagers. I also offer shortened 25 minuted sessions for established teen clients.
