What is an Acne Facial?
Acne is a very common inflammatory skin condition characterized by excess oil production, pimples and even cystic breakout activity in the skin. Our Acne Facial is a targeted facial treatment, using products and tools that specifically address acne as well as skin health and repair following breakout activity.
What are the benefits of an Acne Facial?
The Acne Facial will leave your skin feeling deeply cleansed, detoxified, refreshed and restored. Using special acne-preventing ingredients and modalities, this unique treatment works to fight acne bacteria while also replenishing and restoring balance to your skin.
What conditions can be treated or improved by an Acne Facial?
- Oily skin
- Congested pores
- Skin texture and pore size
What to expect
Your facialist will double cleanse your skin to purify and deeply clean the pores. Then, an exfoliating botanical enzyme or chemical peel may be applied, followed by a nourishing mask treatment and other finishing products.
Your facial may also include LED light therapy, Ultrasonic and High Frequency. LED therapy reduces acne bacteria on the surface of the skin, while ultrasonic deeply cleanses and promotes exfoliation. High Frequency uses advanced current technology to oxygenate the skin and stimulate natural healing responses.
Before & Aftercare
Avoid other invasive procedures or professional exfoliating treatments for about two weeks prior to your facial. A few days before your appointment, discontinue any at-home exfoliation including use of Vitamin A or retinol products.
Post-facial, your skin will be more sun sensitive. Sun protection will be applied immediately following your treatment and you will want to be sure to reapply often as part of your aftercare. We recommend that you continue to use gentle, hydrating and soothing products as instructed by your esthetician. Avoid excess sun exposure and wait until your skin has healed before resuming other exfoliation or retinol usage.
Results & Maintenance
How often you need an Acne Facial will vary depending upon the severity and frequency of your acne breakouts. Because acne is a persistent condition, it responds well to consistent treatment and regular facials. For best results you may need to start by getting an Acne Facial every two to four weeks. Once your skin begins to show improvement, you may find you need a facial only every four to six weeks.
To maintain results in between visits, it’s important to choose high-quality home care products with active ingredients that prevent acne and promote balance. Keep the skin hydrated and always apply SPF daily to protect your investment!
