What is an Acne Facial?

Acne facials help with those prone to oily or acneic skin, and those with uneven complexions. Acne facials cleanse deep in your pores in order to remove the sebum that clogs pores, which then cause acne. This type of facial works to prevent breakouts and sometimes includes the use of a light chemical peel to further help clear skin.

How the Procedure is Performed

An esthetician will first analyze your skin to determine your skin condition and skin issues in order to tailor your acne facial to your exact needs.
An acne facial typically includes:

  • Steaming
  • Deep cleansing
  • Facial extractions
  • Healing mask
  • Moisturizing

Extractions are a large part of acne facials because they work to physically remove dirt that is clogging the pores. Extractions are not something that should be done at home, as incorrectly extracting can lead to infection and long term skin damage.

Acne facials provide a great opportunity to take advantage of many wonderful topical antibiotics in order to prevent further skin breakouts. Glycolic or salicylic acid peels wipe the pores clean, thus removing dead skin. Additionally, microdermabrasion can also be used as part of an acne facial because it works to remove the outer layer of the skin which then allows the skin to breathe.
