Acne Program

Antibiotics Do Not Work! Acne is not a bacterial problem, rather it is a symptom! Products alone will not solve your problem! You need an acne expert!


Medical Esthetics by Katie's New Westminster Clinic offers an affordable acne program with a 95% success rate designed to have your acne under control in approximately 10-12 weeks without the use of prescription drugs. I am able to combine the power of cosmeceutical grade home-care products that are customized for your type of acne and skin along with a series of acne treatments scheduled bi-weekly that facilitates clear skin and gets rid of pimples and blemishes. My Acne Program was developed by Laura Cooksey, founder of Face Reality Acne Clinic and is based on the research and studies of Dr. James Fulton Jr., MD, PHD., one of the most renowned acne experts in the world and founder of Retin-A and Benzoyl Peroxide.


"Acne is a disease. Not a condition or a 'stage' through maturity. It is not a punishment for something you did wrong or failed to do right. You didn't give yourself acne. You don't deserve to have it."

Upper ArmsYou know those funny bumps some people get on their upper arms? They don't really look like pimples on the face, but there are similarities. These bumps known as "Keratosis Pilaris" and are caused by blocked follicles. They can be treated with a combination of an in-office exfoliation and home care.



Why am I successful at resolving Acne?

Your Acne Type - Dermatologists and other acne programs treat all acne the same, but there are distinct “types” of acne that have to be treated differently, and specifically, to achieve clear skin results.​​​ We take the time to evaluate and determine your type of acne. I also focus on nutrition and life-style that may be triggering your breakouts, and I stay updated with the latest acne research and methods to treat your type of acne. 

Customized Program - I combine the power of pharmaceutical grade home-care products​ and medical acne treatments, both customized for your type of acne to hasten the clearing of your skin. 

Expert Coaching - A key part of each appointment is to monitor your progress and adjust your home-care. An ongoing relationship with an expert is the quickest way to get clear. My Clear-Skin Program “coaching” will keep you on track to acne free skin.


  • What about Accutane for acne?

    Accutane is a very powerful drug with dangerous side effects that can last long after you have stopped taking the drug. It dries you out from the inside and can leave you with permanently dry, sensitive skin. Additional side effects include possible birth defects, depression, psychosis, Crohn’s disease, internal organ damage, muscle and bone loss, central nervous system damage and immune system disorders – to name a few. Often, acne returns after stopping Accutane and multiple rounds are required. If you are considering going on Accutane, please consult an acne specialist and consider your options first!

  • Will antibiotics clear my acne?

    Unfortunately, it’s a growing trend for doctors to prescribe antibiotics or Accutane to patients without providing alterative options or addressing the root causes of acne. Antibiotics tend to work for a time on some inflamed acne, but only deals with the bacteria associated with acne, not the main issue of excess skin cells. Therefore, once you stop taking the antibiotic, your acne will come right back. It is also not safe to take antibiotics long-term.  There is global concern that antibiotic resistance rates in common bacterial pathogens may threaten our future ability to control bacterial infections, practices which promote the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria must be fully justified.   

  • Why do I need professional products for my acne?

    Many acne products you find at the drugstore that claim to be good for acne actually contain pore-clogging ingredients or simply stop working (if they help at all). MBK Clinical Skin Solution products are specifically formulated for acneic skin and are guaranteed not to clog pores. The products contain pharmaceutical grade ingredients that clear current acne and prevent pores from filling up again.
