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 home care acne solutions?

    Your medical esthetician can provide the best guidance on caring for your skin between treatments. Generally, this will involve keeping your skin clean and avoiding picking at your blemishes—the single biggest cause of scarring. It’s very important you follow instructions given to you by your medical esthetician. Untreated or undertreated acne can lead to continuing, worsening outbreaks and scarring. Your medical esthetician will be in close contact with you to be sure your products are working effectively for you. As your treatment progresses, your medical esthetician may change your home care routine to fit your changing skin’s needs.

  • What should I expect from my acne treatment?

    You should expect regularly scheduled treatments. Your treatment program may begin with an acne facial. This may include deep cleansing and extractions (clearing blocked pores), special exfoliation that will not increase inflammation or spread bacteria, a balancing/calming mask, anti-bacterial and balancing products, or some combination of these. The goal is to deeply cleanse follicles and disinfect them, clearing away oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Your medical esthetician may also recommend a series of chemical peels. Once the active acne is cleared, microneedling will assist in minimizing the appearance of scarring and diminishing residual darkening of the skin (hyperpigmentation).

  • Visiting your medical esthetician for acne solutions

    Be ready to fill out a medical questionnaire and describe what medications and skin care products you are using. You are also welcome and encouraged to bring in their current skin care products, hair care products and make up to see if they might be causing problems for their skin. Your medical esthetician will do an analysis of your skin, look for any interactions between products and medications, and devise a treatment plan that is suitable for your unique needs. Keep in mind that tangible results require a commitment on your behalf to follow a prescribed home care and professional treatment program. This often involves a series of professional treatments. It takes time to balance the skin and treat acne. Though results may not happen overnight, you are on the path to reclaiming your beautiful, clear skin!
