'90-Day Challenge' A Ten Year Success for Bay Area Acne Clinic

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Esthetician Laura Cooksey, co-owner of Face Reality Acne Clinic in San Leandro, knows the frustrations acne sufferers face. "I had acne until I was 35 and tried it all. I'd been to a half-dozen dermatologists and taken thousands of doses of antibiotics, but the acne always came back. I was also very concerned about the side effects of these drugs," Cooksey recalls. In fact, the World Health Organization claims antibiotic resistance is so serious that a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can even kill, is a very real possibility in our lifetime. Yet doctors prescribe antibiotics for acne more than any other medical condition.

The second most popular treatment is no better. Isotretinion, known by the brand name Accutane, has the potential for severe side effects, including skeletal and liver damage and severe depression. Women of child-bearing age must be on two forms of birth control and be closely monitored, so high is the potential for birth defects as a consequence of using this powerful drug.

Frustrated and terrified, in 1989 Cooksey met an esthetician who promised that she could get her "clear" without antibiotics or other drugs. "Miraculously, in just 90 days, I had clear skin for the first time in 20 years. I cannot possibly describe how that felt. Now my clients know that joy."

In 2005, Cooksey and her business partner, Patrick Romani, opened Face Reality Acne Clinic in the Bay Area. Romani states, "Our approach relies not on drugs of any kind, but on a modality of in-clinic treatments and specific products in an at-home regimen. We look at diet, medications, lifestyle factors, and medications a client may be taking. We then adjust their homecare, systematically, to keep ahead of the skin's adaptation process."

Cooksey frequently speaks at conferences and seminars, has written articles for Skin Deep, Med Esthetics, Les Nouvelles Esthetiques & Spa, and Skin Inc., and has trained over 200 professionals, including MDs and estheticians, who use her modality and Face Reality products.

They offer a 90-day challenge to those suffering from acne. Says Cooksey. "Our success rate is 90% - that's nine out of ten people who are clear within three months. Without any drugs. I am very proud of that."


 90% of patients experience clear skin, most within 90 days.
