The Acne Specialist



Game on

You deserve to feel good in your own skin

Our goal is to help you solve your seemingly unsolvable skin issues, for good.

Imagine your skin care efforts actually paying off. Imagine waking up in the morning thinking about fun plans ahead or what you are going to wear and not about what’s going on with your skin that day. Imagine your life with clear glowing beautiful skin. How would you live and feel differently than you today?

Does that sound like a fantasy? Well it isn’t. If you can make a few food swaps, stay consitant with your home-care regimen, change a few life-style choices, then that life is possible. We can help you!

We are different. We not only focus on what has happened, your current breakout, we teach you how to avoid the breakouts from happening in the first place. With hundreds of clients and years of experience, we believe in a science meets common sense approach. You don’t need dangerous drugs with serious side effects or medications that simply act as a band-aid. You need what actually works.

Cora Nelson

Founder, Licensed Esthetician & Certified Acne Specialist

As an acne sufferer all of my teen and adult life, I have tried it all: Dermatologist prescribed prescription antibiotics, ointments, Proactiv, Accutane / Isotretinoin as a teen, Retin-A, "breakout cure in 30 days" products and pricey designer products at the department stores. Each worked some, but no solution ever worked long-term, and each felt overly harsh on my skin. Over the years, I have spent a ton of time and money on these and many more products and with each I felt disappointment.

I finally learned there is no magic cure/pill/treatment to breakouts but that it can be very successfully managed. While acne is complicated, mysterious and devious disease, the treatment is not difficult and control is possible.

I am truly grateful for finding my path to that of an Acne Specialist so that I can help others find their path successfully managing acne.
