For most people, acne is an inherited condition of the pores. When someone is prone to acne, their pores clog with dead skin cells much faster than normal. Healthy pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore, but acne-prone pores shed up to five layers of dead skin cells per day. The body just can’t keep up with keeping the pore clear.

Brilliant Bodywork Acne Clinic
The Ultimate Transformative Journey
Each step is customized to your specific profile. Each treatment is designed to address issues unique to your skin type, eating habits, personal hygiene and body chemistry. Our Face Reality System gives you the very best chance for a dramatically improved complexion that can transform your life. At Brilliant Bodywork we combine the power of pharmaceutical-grade products that are customized for your type of acne, with a series of bi-monthly treatments.
We also teach you about other aggravating factors that make you break out such as foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores (even professional and prescription products).
We test your skin to make sure you are getting the most effective products for your acne type, skin type, and skin tolerance. It won't be enough just to have the right products – it's all about having the right routine for those products. You will learn how to use products slowly at first, so that your skin stays receptive without causing irritation or dehydration.
But skin can become accustomed to products and then become less effective over time – that is why we will adjust your regimen little by little, to get rid of your acne.

You cannot cure acne but you can have clear skin if you know what you are doing. There are a few key concepts that you need to know to get your skin clear and get rid of acne.
- You need to use the right acne products for your type of acne. A product that is good for inflamed acne (pimples, pustules and cysts) will not be good for non-inflamed acne (blackheads and whiteheads)
- You need these products to be strong enough for your type of skin. If they are not, your skin will not change much. If they are too strong, you will irritate and dehydrate your skin; and you will still break out.
- You need to use these products in the right way. It takes strong products to get acne under control, but if you use too much too soon, you will irritate and dehydrate your skin. You must start slowly with strong products.
- You need to account for skin adaptation. This means you cannot allow your skin to get too “used” to products. If you do, then your skin will stop responding and not get clear. It takes adjusting your skin care regimen routinely.
Does this all sound like tricky business? Yes, no doubt that it is.
These are the main reasons you need an acne expert to guide you in the process of getting your skin clear. We know what it takes to get and keep your skin clear and we know how to get rid of acne once and for all!
Our Acne Clinic has a unique system for helping you get clear skin. In working with thousands of acne sufferers, we have learned the fine art of knowing exactly what products to use on your type of skin and your type of acne.
Our system works by taking into account:
- Your skin type
- Your acne type
- Your skin condition
- How fast your skin adapts to products
- Lifestyle considerations that could be affecting your skin.
We test your skin before we give you a home care regimen and give you the strongest home care products that your skin will tolerate, specifically chosen for the type of acne that you have.
Our estheticians always assess your skin condition every time you come in for a treatment. If your skin is irritated and dry from product use, then we will have you back off your routine somewhat for just a few days.
Most importantly, we coach you on how to use your products. Even the best acne products will eventually stop working if you are not using them correctly. Using products too frequently can irritate your skin; not using them enough can slow your progress. One of the most important aspects of our system is our ability to coach you as your skin adapts so that your skin never becomes too used to your home care routine. If you use products the same way for too long, your skin quickly adapts and your acne will return.
While getting your skin clear, we will work together to adjust your home care routine. A well-managed routine will prevent acne from forming in the first place. Our Acne Clinic’s acne specialists know how to finesse the push and pull of managing your regimen. Working together with us, you can and will have clear skin.
If you truly want to get rid of acne, let our experienced acne specialists guide you.
Acne Clinic Patient Story
Take a look at Molly V.'s experience. She is a client at the Brilliant Bodywork Face Reality Acne Clinic.
"These are my before/after pictures while working with the Face Reality program through Brilliant Bodywork with Stephanie.This change took about 4 months and has been life changing. I have always had bad acne and have used every product, including prescriptions, with the exception of accutane which I was unwilling to use.
People can finally see ME! Yes, I have some scarring but I am so proud of my skin now. Don't waste your money on chemicals that ruin your body. I still have blue deposits in my legs from being on an antibiotic for so long. I am so confident now and go places without makeup (something I never thought would be possible for me).
The best part is that the people who love me, loved me in my before pics and can now join me in the joy of the after."
