A facial is a popular cosmetic treatment with multiple steps. The first step, especially for new clients, will be a consultation, during which the client discusses their concerns and learns more about how corrective facials may be used to address them. During this initial appointment, our specialist will analyze the client’s skin in order to decide on the best procedures and products to use.
During a typical facial, blackheads and/or whiteheads are softened and extracted. The skin is exfoliated and a massage and/or mask may be used. Several different serums and lotions can also be applied to nourish the skin. Finally, our specialist can advise the client on how to take better care of their skin. If you are dealing with acne, you could definitely benefit from corrective facials at our office.
How Can Corrective Facials Help with Acne?
Facials can be tailored to help people with different skin types and problems. During the analysis, we will take note of the client’s skin types (oily, normal, dry or combination) and any obvious problems like acne. A client with acne has oily or combination skin, so we will choose products that will unclog the client’s pores, reduce the amount of oil on the skin, and kill the bacteria that cause acne. Our corrective facials for acne and oily skin include the Pineapple Cherry Enzyme Facial and the Inflammation Diffusion facial. During a consultation at our office, you can learn more about how these facials can work for you.
Do Corrective Facials Help All Types of Acne?
No. These facials can effectively treat whiteheads, blackheads and other types of mild acne. They don’t usually work, however, on the more severe types of acne. Bigger and deeper blemishes like cysts or nodes should be treated by a dermatologist, in most cases.
Are There Other Spa Treatments for Acne?
Yes! Like corrective facials, however, they usually only work for mild cases. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are treatments that exfoliate the topmost layers of the skin and can be used to treat acne scars, as well as acne, depending on the situation.
