ACNE FACIAL: WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT

Acne is not one size fits all. Depending on the cause of your acne, it may manifest as the odd pimple or a more chronic, lifelong condition. The truth is, up to 80% of us will experience acne at some point during our lifetimes.

If acne is stressing you out, don’t underestimate the value of an acne facial. The results of professional acne treatments are difficult to replicate at home as they require a level of safety and knowledge only an esthetician should provide. Not only that, but they are the best way to ensure your skin is clear and glowing.

THE BENEFITS OF AN ACNE FACIAL

If you feel like your life is controlled by your acne and breakouts, we cannot recommend professional treatments enough. While the urge to pop your pimples at home can be overwhelming, choosing a spot treatment instead, and seeing an esthetician to perform extractions is a highly superior option. By popping your pimples at home, you run the risk of making your breakouts significantly worse by inadvertently pushing bacteria deeper into the skin. This not only leads to further pimples – but can cause infection as well.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AN ACNE FACIAL AT DERMAGLOW

But what does an esthetician do? How is going in for a facial that different from your home care routine? Think of your esthetician as your skin care manager, it is their job to ensure that your skin is on the right track. They take a close look at your skin and carefully design a custom treatment for your specific needs.

Your treatment will start with a skin assessment to not only help your esthetician determine your facial treatment protocol, but to help identify how often you should ideally visit the spa, and what products you should use in your home care routine. After assessment, the esthetician will cleanse the skin, apply treatments such as an exfoliating peel and mask, and perform techniques such as steaming and/or extractions. They will end the treatment with a moisturizer and SPF to ensure your skin is nourished and protected.

If you are dealing with acne,professional care is very important – especially exfoliation and extractions, as they prevent the spread of bacteria, and minimize scarring.
