At Swoon Aesthetic Spa & Acne Clinic we understand your frustration and struggle to find products and treatments that actually work to eliminate acne. Our certified Acne Specialists, Carrie and Bergan, spend time getting to know each patient so that we can get you the results you’ve been searching for. Our goal is for you to be virtually acne-free for life. Whether you suffer from teen acne, adult acne or anything in between, now is the perfect time for you to get real and clear.
philosophy of care
Swoon Aesthetic Spa & Acne Clinic uses professional treatments based on the work of Dr. James Fulton, M.D., PhD, and Laura Cooksey, Licensed Esthetician, Acne Expert, and founder of Face Reality Acne Clinic Skincare System.
Our Acne Clinic has a clear skin program that will have your acne under control in approximately 6-12 weeks, depending on your type of acne. We combine the power of clinical grade home-care products that are customized for your type of acne and skin, along with bi-monthly professional treatments. During these visits, we closely monitor your skin, making sure that we are “pushing” your skin to clear, but not so much that your skin gets irritated. We are your partners in this process, working together so you can have clear skin as quickly as possible.
Each professional acne treatment is curated based on what your skin needs at the time of your appointment. We will analyze your skin at the beginning of every treatment to assess which treatment would serve you best. Treatments are performed every two weeks until your skin clears (usually between three to four months). This is because it takes 30-90 days for existing acne impactions to make their way to the surface.
After your acne is under control, you can maintain your home-care regimen to keep your acne managed. We also recommend professional treatment every few months for maintenance.

frequently asked questions
What Should I Expect During My Initial Treatment and Consultation?
Our Acne Specialist will diagnose your specific acne type and identity factors that may be the culprit to your acne. You’ll receive a packet with valuable information about ingredients, food, habits and lifestyle choices that aggravate acne, as well as a list of acne-safe make-up recommendations. You will be asked to bring all of the products you use to our first appointment so that we can check for pore-clogging ingredients. After a thorough skin analysis and sensitivity test, you will receive a professional treatment which will include home-care routine using products with “acne safe” ingredients and set up a treatment schedule that fits your budget.
How Is Your Acne Treatment Program Different?
The Face Realty Skincare line offers a range of products in different strengths that can be customized to treat your specific type of acne and severity.
Carrie and Bergan are your personal acne experts and will coach you through your specific skin problems. We are fully-accessible by email and in-clinic checkups between acne treatments.
We adjust your home-care routine every two weeks because acne skin has the ability to adapt to products. We want to stay ahead of this and keep pushing your skin to clear.
The program addresses all aspects of getting your skin clear. (lifestyle, diet, hyperkeratosis, bacteria), not just one area.
Do I Need to Prepare in Anyway Prior to the Initial Consultation?
Yes! If you are on any prescription medication for your acne or on any over- the- counter acne medications, you must be off of them completely for one week prior to the consultation. During the consultation, we perform a skin sensitivity test so we know what kind of home-care products to prescribe and what course of treatment we will perform. Your skin will be falsely sensitive if having recently used these medications. This includes all retinoids, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acids.
Does It Really Work?
Yes! The Face Reality Acne Treatment Program has a 90% success rate. Sounds gimmicky, right? But their protocols and treatment plans have been tested and refined over the years. They have been treating patients at their Acne Clinic in California since the early 1990s with many happy and clear-faced patients! Now they share and trained Esthetician’s all over the country.
