Skin Inc. Acne Protocol

Acne Treatment Protocols- weekly treatment 

 

 

When treating acne, perform an acne client intake form and complete consultation first. When treating acneic skin do not exfoliate on acne at all. Do not massage on acne. Do not perform a facial or an acne facial. The only thing that is acceptable is contrast hydrotherapy compressions. Do not extract on papules, leave blackheads for later, only pustules can be lanceted and extracted. Do not try extract papules and blackheads. This makes acne worse. Do not exfoliate, dermaplane, microdermabrasion, manually exfoliation or brush machine or massage while there is active acne present on the face. 

 

If skin is also hyperpigmented they should be retailed a hyperpigmentation serum at the first treatment with sun block that must be used daily. If you have indicated that the client has a hormonal imbalance- that is of estrogen dominance, suggest to the client to start taking DIM (please only suggest this item if the client sheet indicates it.)  

 

If acne is not clear repeat the above steps in week two. Please support the client and remind them not to pick the skin or it will not heal, and the treatments are worthless if they do. Remind them that picking is a sole contributor to ice pick scarring. Make sure acne is clear before going forward with other treatments to resolve oiliness and ice pick scarring such at microdermabrasion and chemical peeling with a physical sunblock that must be used daily. At the first appointment, take the client in the bathroom or a space in your facility that has a mirror and a ledge to hold products- walk them through the routine that they will do on their face twice a day. Put the products in their hands and show them what to do. Homecare is a crucial part of the acne treatment plan.
