I opened The Face Place to specifically provide corrective skin care – no waxing, no body treatments, and no fluffy spa treatments – just corrective skin care; for aging concerns, hyperpigmentation, and acne treatment. My studio is in a small setting, by appointment only, so you will have 100% of my attention, privacy, and confidentiality.

I chose to mainly specialize in acne treatment after suddenly having trouble with my own skin. Having clear skin my whole life, I wasn’t sure what to do when my skin started breaking out as an adult due to stress and hormonal changes. I tried it all – dermatologists, med-spas, Differin, Spironolactone, laser treatments, antibiotics, expensive products…ugh.

After leaving my corporate career in 2009, and getting my esthetician license in 2011, I discovered the Face Reality Acne System. I contacted a local esthetician that was using the Face Reality system, and began seeing her for my troubled skin. I began seeing results almost immediately! I know it sounds like an infomercial – but it truly was the only thing I ever tried that really worked – a series of in office treatments, a strict homecare regimen, and a little hand holding. I decided at that time that I wanted to share this experience with anyone who would listen to me.

At The Face Place, I use the Face Reality Acne System which was developed by Laura Cooksey at the Face Reality Acne Clinic in San Leandro, CA. Their products and protocols are modeled after the late Dr. James Fulton Jr., M.D., Ph.D., who was one of the most renowned acne specialists in the world. Dr. Fulton was best known for his breakthroughs in product development including co-developing Retin-A™ and Benzoyl Peroxide gel.

More than 60 million Americans suffer from some form of breakouts. Whether it is a mild case or severe case, it can be hard on the self esteem. It can determine people’s first and lasting impression of you. There is no magic cure for acne, but it can be very successfully managed. I can help you.
