Acne Facials AshevilleHere you will find a number of treatments designed for anyone who may be experiencing some blemish, acne or pimple problems. Ranging from mild to severe, we can help.  

With over 40 years experience in treating various skins, Brea understands the causes of acne, blemishes and pimples.   Once we determine the cause of your skin problems, we can proceed to get your skin clear.

Our work is very different from the best dermatologist for acne. You may be using topical creams prescribed by your dermatologist in Asheville and they may not be making a difference. Let us look at your skin – 30 minute free consultation – and we will tell you exactly what we can do for your blemish problem.

HORMONAL Acne is not ALWAYS that. There are other conditions that cause acne that is not considered at the dermatologist’s office. Please give us a chance to look at your skin and help you receive the proper care. Drugs can often exacerbate the problem. We give you a fresh new look at what your root cause may be.

ADULT ACNE has been misdiagnosed for many of our clients.  There are many conditions that cause acne. We look at the root cause of your acne and help you get the clear skin you are craving.

Thank you Brea! I wanted to write to you to let your future clients know about my results and how grateful I am that I found you.  I’ve had problems with my skin since my teen years. As you know, I am now 44, so for about 30 years I have had acne. I’ve seen several dermatologists throughout the years and no results. They all seemed to treat my skin the same. I’ve even been to see a physicians assistant who practices natural health and medicine and she checked my hormones, they were slightly off. Then I found you and wanted to see what you had to say. WOW, did you tell me something entirely different. I took your advice. I even spoke with the PA and she was impressed with the information. So much so, that she ran some different tests and confirmed you were absolutely correct in your diagnosis. It has been six weeks now and I have not seen my skin looking so good since I was 12. I can, for the first time, go out without makeup. I have NO ACNE at all. Everyday, I am amazed at the work you do and how beautiful my skin looks. I can’t thank you enough. I pray that others with skin problems will find their way to you. Thank you so much!!! (name withheld)

We offer treatments perfect for blemished and problematic skin including acne, pimples, acne rosacea, and cystic acne as well as scar reduction. We recommend if your acne, blemish or pimple condition is mild, that you start with a Signature Facial.  If needed, Brea will recommend one of the treatments below. Of course, it is perfectly fine to choose one of the facial treatments below for your first appointment.


Acne For more than 30 years, the Restorative Facial has continued to be our most popular.

During a Corrective Facial, everything your skin needs is provided in this deeply cleansing and most relaxing facial. Exfoliation and extraction with our signature massage technique bring it all together for a fabulous facial each and every time.

AcneInfusion Diamond Resurface is a beneficial facial treatment for skin congestion. Infusion Diamond Resurface involves the same principles as traditional micro-dermabrasion, but after the dead skin cells have been removed, we apply vitamins, antioxidants and peptides under oxygen. Because the skin is more permeable once the skin cells have been removed, the absorption of the substances applied to the skin is greater. Extraction is included with this treatment.

What Type of Acne Do You Have? read here…

NOTE FROM BREA:  I want every person who is experiencing any type of acne to know that I am passionate and compassionate. My goal is to get your skin clear as quickly as possible. I can do that for you. Depending on the severity of your skin condition, it can be obtained in 1-5 treatments. There are conditions that may take longer and that may be partly due to discovery of the root cause. The root cause may be as simple as changing a habit or product and can be more difficult. We stay with it and continue to probe by asking questions over and over again until something is revealed. For example: One client answered all my questions and on her third treatment, I noticed she had a special type of oil in her hair – the hair oil was her problem. Another client was working in a movie theater where she popped the popcorn – it was the air-born oil that was causing her problems.

EMAIL FROM CLIENT  – received Corrective Facial treatment (July 8, 2015) and several Quick Fix Extraction treatments. Email received September 23, 2015.Here’s a little review for you, if you want to add it to your site. You have my confidence!After years of struggling with acne and many failed “treatment” options, I felt defeated and toyed with the idea of Accutane. After all things considered I could not justify putting my body through the harsh process for the sake of vanity. I was apprehensive that anything or anyone could really treat my problem skin but decided to give a more holistic approach a try and contact Brea and I am so glad I did! It’s been about three months and Brea has totally transformed my skin through her products and services. Brea is gifted at what she does and genuinely cares about her clients – she is warm-hearted and her level of professionalism is unmatched. I would recommend her to anyone. — Thank you Brea, I feel spoiled. You are incredible!!!

EMAIL FROM CLIENT – received Corrective Facial treatment July 8, 2015 – Email received July 12, 2015:Brea,Just wanted to let you know you worked some sort of miracle on my face haha! My skin looks so much better already. I’ve been loving the products as well! Looking forward to the next time, I will schedule in the next week or two. Thanks so much, you’re amazing!!! Julia

How Often Should I……?

How Often Should I……?

I get asked these questions all the time. How often should I cleanse my skin? How often should I scrub/exfoliate? How often should I wear sunscreen? How often should I get a facial? How often should I do waxing? Let’s start with “how often should I cleanse my skin?”.  I believe once a day is […]

Oxygen Infusion

Oxygen Infusion

The reason it works is that the infusion delivers a potent combo of oxygen and hyaluronic acid serum at the lowest molecular weight possible, which means that the serum is easily absorbed through the skin pores and directly into the deeper tissue. Brea is a cosmetic chemist and will custom blend a serum for your skin at […]

What Does Yeast (Candida) Related Acne Look Like?

Starting in 1982, I noticed some of my clients had certain blemishes/acne that I could not help. I would shake my head and tell them that it was “something in their blood”. I did not know what, but it was not a typical acne condition. I had one client named Barbara. She came to me […]

What type of acne do you have?

Basically, there are two types of acne. Follicular Acne: A formation of a comedone (blackhead).  The opening of the hair follicle (pore as you may call it) becomes blocked/congested by dead skin cells and sebum (oil).  Often, this blockage continues to increase in size until the follicle wall will break and all the debris mentioned […]
