Acne Treatment Facial
Regular Acne Treatment Facials can help to reduce breakouts and will improve the overall appearance of your skin. During the facial, extractions are performed to remove pore blockages. During the facial, only products recommended for acne suffers will be used to cleanse and moisturize the skin. Several treatments will be required for the best results.
There are three key steps for every acne facial:
- Cleanse & Analyze: Your aesthetician will cleanse your skin of all surface dirt and oil before examining it more closely to analyse the extent of your acne and any other issues including sun damage and dehydration.
- Exfoliation: The top layer of skin is removed during exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. This can be done manually using facial scrubs or using mechanical exfoliation devices.
- Extraction: If you have clogged pores then your aesthetician will manually extract the blockages. An extraction tool is used on each acne lesion to force any pus, bacteria, debris or even blood up out of the pore thus removing the clog and allowing your pores to open. It is a mildly aggressive procedure and must only be carried out my professionals otherwise you could damage your pores.
Regular acne facials will help stop pores getting blocked and can reduce the inflammation. They can not only help to clear up current breakouts, but also prevent them in the future.
