What does an acne facial do?
An acne facial is a specialized skincare treatment designed to address and manage acne-prone skin. It typically involves a combination of deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and targeted treatments to help reduce acne breakouts, minimize inflammation, and improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. The specific techniques and products used in an acne facial may vary depending on the individual's skin type, severity of acne, and the skincare professional's approach.
Here's an overview of what an acne facial typically involves:
Cleansing: The facial starts with a thorough cleansing of the skin to remove makeup, dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of the skin. This helps create a clean canvas for the subsequent treatments.
Exfoliation: Exfoliation is used to remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and contribute to acne. This step may involve the use of gentle exfoliating products or techniques to promote skin cell turnover.
Steam: Many acne facials incorporate steam to help open up the pores, making it easier to perform extractions and remove comedones (clogged pores).
Extraction: This step involves manually removing blackheads, whiteheads, and other clogged pores. A skilled esthetician uses specialized tools and techniques to gently extract these impurities without damaging the skin.
Anti-Acne Treatments: Acne facials often include the application of products containing active ingredients such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or alpha hydroxy acids. These ingredients help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and control excess oil production.
Mask: A mask tailored to address acne-prone skin is applied to further target inflammation, absorb excess oil, and promote healing.
Sun Protection: A broad-spectrum sunscreen is will be applied at the end of the treatment to protect the skin from UV damage, as some acne treatments can make the skin more sensitive to the sun.
Our esthetician will perform a consultation right before the facial to determine your skin acne condition and recommend the best therapy to be used during the facial.
