What is the Anti - Acne Facial?
Treating acne doesn’t have to be difficult. The Anti - Acne Facial by Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center is an alternative skincare treatment aimed towards those with acne prone skin with problems like cystic acne, oily skin, or dead skin cells that might be clogging up your pores. The treatment is designed specifically for acne fighting with minimal side effects. Acne facial treatments focus primarily on extractions to unclog pores and kill bacteria in the skin with the use of salicylic acids, hydroxy acids, glycolic acids, or benzoyl peroxides depending on what works best for your skin.
The extraction process releases any excess build-up of oil with an effective deep cleansing, reducing the look and feel of inflammation in your layer of skin. The board certified aesthetician uses a high frequency blue illuminator to target acne bacteria in the skin and reduce redness. This acne treatment includes an application of a custom antiseptic / anti-inflammatory mask and sometimes if necessary, a layer of a custom peel.
NOTE: If you have severe acne, you may consider having this type of facial massage performed by a medically reviewed dermatologist followed by prescriptions if necessary.
*#1 best facial we offer for combating acne breakouts.
What can I expect from the Anti - Acne Facial?
The skin care treatment process includes:
- Blue Light therapy
- Facial masks and peels catered to your skincare needs
These steps boost the blood circulation within the skin, which in turn helps to repair the damaged skin calls while simultaneously tones, strengthens and tightens the skin cells. This type of facial is perfect to reduce inflammation for mild to moderate acne. It can help to remove excess oil for oily to combination type skin but can also help prevent acne in sensitive skin types.
For severe acne, please consult with your dermatologist before starting treatments and verify with your doctor the type of acne you might be suffering from. While anti acne facials will help reduce your breakouts, it will not completely solve the root of the problem. Please continue your other anti-acne treatments such as medications or topical creams/serums.
