Our Philosophy



skinSALVATION philosophy

hi my name is kimberly yap tan founder of skinSALVATION, san francisco’s first adult acne and rosacea skin care clinic. We’ve been in business for over 10 years, utilizing long-term solutions to empower our clients to live a healthy, clear-skinned life. Our natural approach to treating acne consists of a completely customized skincare and lifestyle regimen, and our results have been phenomenal. We start by identifying the acne causing imbalances in your lifestyle, and we teach you how to correct them. That, in combination with in-clinic treatments and a customized skin-care regimen, can help keep you clear for the long-term.

Most skin-care remedies offer a generic approach; assuming that all acne-prone skin is oily. skinSALVATION’s approach is totally different. We’ve formulated our products for adults in their 20s to 40s. So not only are we addressing the acne, but we are also folding in some anti-aging benefits as well. Drugstore remedies and prescription medications often end up drying out, irritating and sensitizing your skin, and more often than they not, they actually have pore clogging or comedogenic ingredients which actually cause more acne to form. You’ve probably only addressed your acne topically, and so you’ve either reached a plateau, or maybe you’re still breaking out. Our approach will help to identify and fill in those gaps, so that we can give you the tools for long-term clarity.

skinSALVATION  isn’t just a product or a band aid, it’s a lifestyle change with long-term healthy results to be had.  If you’re ready to make a difference, contact us today and discover your new life with clear skin.
