What is an Acne Facial?
Acne treatments are not just for teenagers anymore, many men and women in their 20's, 30's, and beyond are dealing with spots, pimples and irritated skin. While many people with acne opt to visit the dermatologist, a visit to the spa could also improve your skin. At the spa, treatments for acne usually employ deep-pore and deep-tissue cleansing to rid the skin of excess oils and stimulate circulation. Antibacterial ingredients like tea tree oil and lavender are often utilised in an Acne Facial to prevent further breakouts and soothe your skin. Acne Facials generally incorporate a combination of thorough steaming, deep cleansing, facial extractions to remove pore-clogging sebum, a healing mask and gentle moisturiser.
Know Before You Go
Don't be afraid to ask questions to find out exactly what is being done to your skin. Let your therapist know if you are on any acne medications as some products do not react well with Acne Facials. For those who suffer from more extreme cases of acne, a spa facial may not be the best treatment. In this case, the therapist should advise you to make an appointment with a dermatologist. In many cases, more than one treatment is needed to achieve the desired result. Generally, a series of acne facials as well as at-home care that features a daily skin-care regime is recommended for ideal results.
