for all new clients, skinSALVATION requires an initial consultation and treatment. this allows us to identify underlying causes of your acne, create a custom regimen for you based on your skin's needs, and begin the clearing process.
Initial Acne Consultation & Skin Analysis
your first appointment with us emphasizes the analytical and educational aspect of our work, which ensures you the proper treatment plan for a lifetime of clear skin. the first part of the appointment is an in-depth consultation that examines your skin, health history and lifestyle. the second phase of the appointment is a hands-on skin analysis, where we document your baseline complexion, and determine your skin care regime. the last phase is where we share with you information on the skin-changing, acne-safe lifestyle, and we present to you your custom treatment and regimen plan.

Facial Acne Treatments
for the majority of clients, peels and extractions are scheduled in the same appointment. for some clients with a high risk of hyperpigmentation or keloid scarring, our estheticians may recommend scheduling peels and extractions separately. if you are unsure what type of appointment to book, do not hesitate to contact your esthetician directly or to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signature Acne Treatment
thorough extractions purge existing acne seeds and a dermatological-grade chemical peel and/or an enzyme mask exfoliates skin, smoothing overall texture and flushing deep acne impactions to the surface. pregnant, nursing, or immuno-compromised clients will receive a healing or moisturizing treatment tailored to the skin's needs in place of a chemical peel. alternatively, the entire appointment time may be used exclusively for extractions, for densely congested complexions.

Dermatological-Grade Chemical Peel
most clients require our signature acne treatment, but for those clients sensitive to extractions, who are working on minimizing hyperpigmentation, or are maintaing clarity, standalone peels may be appropriate. if you are unsure if a chemical peel is right for your skin, ask your esthetician.
Back Acne Treatments
acne on the back requires higher-grade chemical peels with longer healing times to effectively purge. for this reason, peels and extractions are scheduled separately for all back treatments. for best results, schedule a back peel 2 3 weeks prior to extractions and expect a treatment plan that is 6-12 months long.
Dermatological-Grade Chemical Peel
peeling the skin flushes acne impactions to the surface, allowing for more thorough extractions. because back peels are higher grade than facial peels, allow 2 - 3 weeks for full healing, and schedule extractions as soon as peeling has stopped.
thorough extractions are the most effective and efficient way to purge skin of acne. after the skin has been peeled, acne impactions are flushed to the surface allowing for most effective extractions, so schedule extractions 2 - 3 weeks after a peel for best results.
Series of 6 Treatment Package
to save an average of 10%, clients can purchase a package of 6 signature acne treatments (the standard number of treatments it takes to get clear).
6 Facial Combination Peel & Extract Treatments
homecare products are dispensed only upon professional recommendation and range from $3.95 (for a lipbalm) to $81.95 (for a retinolic serum with hydroquinone). please keep in mind, we only sell you what you need, and only products that are truly acne-safe. most basic acne regimens average about $150-200 for 2+ months' worth of product.
General Appointment Information
The initial consultation and skin analysis appointment kickstarts your journey down the road to clarity.
during this time, we will discuss your health history, review your lifestyle and dietary habits, identify the acne-causing ones and empower you with the knowledge on you how to correct them, check your existing skincare products for comedogenicity, and finally, come up with a treatment plan to get you clear safely and sustainably, as quickly as possible.
For best results, we see clients for a 1-hour treatment every 2-3 weeks, until the acne is under control
which is an average of 3 months, or 6 treatments. marked improvement, however, is usually evident within the first 2-4 weeks of the program. after that, maintenance appointments are recommended for optimal clarity at intervals of 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks and so on. as the skin clears, the time in between treatments lengthens.
Post-treatment downtime is to be expected, and is really, not much worse than a bad day of acne you've already had.
as your skin clears, skin recovery time is shortened. inflammation, redness, scabbing, and rarely hyperpigmentation (which in most cases, is correctable) are normal parts of the clearing process. a hot date or special event the day of (or up to a week following) your appointment is not recommended. please plan accordingly.
As long as you give the sS method a fair shot, our success rate is very high
about 90-95%. for the fraction of clients that, by the 6th treatment, don't clear with sS alone, we may recommend seeing a naturopathic professional to go deeper and help purge whatever is systemically causing the acne - be it a digestive parasite, hormonal imbalances, or yeast/candida issues.
Client compliance is the major factor in the success of the sS method.
we reserve the right to dismiss clients that are non-compliant. we take our work very seriously and respectfully ask our clients to do the same.
Cancellation & Return Policy
we encourage existing clients to use our online scheduling system to manage their appointments. emails, phone calls and voice messages may not be received until the next business day, resulting in a late cancellation charge.
For the initial acne consultation and skin analysis appointment
we respectfully require at least 7 days notice to reschedule or cancel an appointment to avoid a 100% cancellation AND/OR rescheduling charge. with at least 7 full day's notice, a money-back refund is honored for the consultation only. because we reserve highly-coveted appointments slots especially for you, for all follow-up acne treatments (both for face and back), we respectfully enforce a firm policy, and require at least 48 hours notice to reschedule or cancel an appointment to avoid a cancellation/rescheduling charge. for 48-24 hours notice, we will charge 50% of the booked service, for less than 24 hours we will charge 100%.
Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL, including payment rendered for treatments
(already rendered or paid for in advance) and products (except in the case of an allergic reaction, up to the discretion of skinSALVATION). any refunds, if any, will be given to the client in the form of a store credit.
