We’ve dedicated an entire page to anti-acne treatments because it has become so prevalent here in Colorado, now more than ever. Contributing to these breakouts is dry climate, pollution, hormones, clogged pores and of course…wearing masks. Masks, while effective in protecting yourself and others during a global pandemic, unfortunately can also be a breeding ground for bacteria causing endless breakouts and even cystic acne. “Mask-ne” is the result of clogged pores because masks impose heat, friction and occlusion on the skin and when combined with a moist environment from breathing, talking or sweating, they’re a recipe for chronic breakouts. The frustration and even agony I’ve witnessed in so many clients is at a level I’ve never seen in my 15 years as an esthetician. If you or a loved one is dealing with persistent breakouts, you are not alone and even more comforting is to understand that there is hope.
All of the anti-acne treatments we offer include 7 steps for clearer, healthier, beautifully-radiant skin. These 7 steps are outlined below and are offered in all Levels I, II and III with intensity based on age and degrees of severity of acne and superficial bruising and/or scarring.

- Clean Pores/Professional Extractions
- Smooth Out Texture/Micro-needling

The Anti-Acne Package for teens and adults. This is for persistent breakouts, meaning you never have clear skin and there is always some form of acne on your face or chest. This is also for those with Grade 3 acne. Grade 3 (moderate- severe, or nodulocystic acne): numerous papules and pustules, along with occasionally inflamed nodules. Your back may also be affected.
This package consists of 6-30min treatments (three 2-series) done 3 weeks apart. Each treatment includes all 7 steps mentioned above, but are more targeted and more aggressive with some downtime including slight redness and mild flaking or peeling for 1-3 days. This has been our most popular and most successful anti-acne plan and we highly recommend it. Each treatment sold individually is typically $150 each. Sold as a “package” the price of each treatment is discounted to $100 each, a savings of $300.
Jessner Peels for Grade 4 acne (severe nodulocystic acne): numerous large, painful and inflamed pustules and nodules. Get a handle on it at this stage or scarring is inevitable. This peel is stronger, yet non-invasive and the most popular peel in the industry due to its efficacy and amazing results. A Jessner’s peel is a combination of salicylic acid, resorcinol, and lactic acid. Salicylic acid dissolves hardened skin cells within the epidermal layer of skin, lactic acid adds hydration, and resorcinol is used due to its natural antiseptic properties. The peeling process will take several days to complete its course. Generally 4-6 layers will result in a medium/deep peel and 7-8 layers can result in a deep peel. The distinct blend of acids work in synergy to combat superficial acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and rough texture to reveal vibrant glowing skin. Downtime 5-7 days. (This can also be done at the end of the Anti-Acne Package).
