What Facial Is Best For Acne

First, what exactly is Acne? Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands resulting from their blockage and increased production of oils on the skin. Only a person who has faced this issues knows how difficult it is to deal and treat acne. Usually, without the help of a competent esthetician many fail in their battle with acne.

Most often the first step towards acne free healthy skin is to get a facial cleansing. Facials are normally procedures that allow you to deeply cleanse the oil glands and pores from impurities, bacterias and microbes that provoke acne.

Some people may wonder if it really is necessary to receive a professional facial to treat acne and pimples. Some feel they can just squeeze out the pimples at home. It is important to remember however, that only a highly qualified specialist knows that not all acne is created equal. For example, acute inflammation and subcutaneous acne should not to be touched due to the risk of spreading the infection.

An Acne Facial cleansing must be carried out correctly, observing all the guidelines of cleanliness and aseptic techniques.

Why Does Acne Occur?

To fight acne first we must understand why acne occurs in the first place. 

Experts highlight some causes of acne:

  • Excessive secretion of the oily glands of the skin.
  • Follicular hyperkeratosis or thickening of the outer layer of skin.
  • The presence of bacteria causing acne. Propionibacterium acnes, staphylococcus in the sebaceous glands. 
  • Inflammation caused by the activity of microorganisms.

It is also believed that acne can be caused by the following internal factors:

  • A change in hormonal balance (an increase in testosterone production), leading to increased function of the oily glands, which is characteristic of adolescence, as well as for women during menstruation)
  • Excessive growth of the stratum corneum (hyperkeratosis), which leads to clogging sebaceous glands ducts and development of inflammation.
  • Lipid metabolism disorders (for the successful treatment of acne, normalization of fat metabolism in general and specifically in the sebaceous glands) is necessary.
  • Gastrointestinal diseases (this hypothesis is still debated). 
  • Features of individual microflora of the skin.
  • Stress.
  • Immune system dysfunction.

Some external factor can also be the cause of repeated acne outbreaks such as the following:

  • Use of comedogenic cosmetics.
  • Lifestyle and work (exposure to toxic substances).
  • Drug intake (taking steroid hormones)
  • The climate where you live.

Acne Diagnosis

To determine the form of acne and the degree of development, an experienced esthetician needs a visual examination of the patient's skin. Women with persistent acne are recommended to have laboratory tests to test the level of testosterone and other hormones. In men, hormonal stimulants or steroids for muscle growth can promote this condition.

To exclude infectious causes, bacterial and fungal cultures are done. The sensitivity of bacteria to antibiotics is determined for the purpose of treatment.

Professional Facial Cleansing Acne treatment

To promote healthy oil glands and relieve inflammation caused by acne, topical antibacterial agents are not enough. That's because bacteria accumulates at a depth of 2-3 mm and most ointments do not penetrate to that depth.

Light therapy is recognized as an effective method of fighting infection. It has proven a gentle and quick way to treat acne. Light therapy, for example, causes chemical reactions that reduce the activity of the sebaceous glands and neutralize bacteria in the areas of inflammation. After the second session, positive changes are quite noticeable. To completely cure acne, 8-10 procedures are often necessary, which are performed with an interval of about 15-20 days.

We can also remove surface contamination with ultrasound facial techniques. An esthetician will carefully remove the upper stratum corneum of dead cells that clog the sebaceous glands. 

If your skin is too sensitive for the previously mentioned facials, then we will perform a manual cleaning procedure using delicate cosmetics.

You can get rid of most pimples and acne in one specialized treatment. Sign up for a comprehensive facial cleansing in our spa - after just one procedure, your skin will look more healthy, fresh, and smooth.

Jaylene was absolutely amazing! She was able to see me the same day and remove my old lashes and do a full set. She made them appear cat eye and they are just gorgeous! This spa also sells some amazing jewelry and skin care products. I’ve tried a few already and am in love. This is my new permanent salon for any brow, lash, or facial needs.

I am so happy with my results! Can’t wait to go back for my Powder Ombre and my Brazilian Bikini Sugaring! Update: The sugaring was a relatively painless experience… will definitely do again as I am thrilled with the results. My powder brows look amazing for day two and I have gotten tons of compliments already!

I'm a regular here now and I LOVE IT. I go for the sugar waxing and I stay for the good vibes. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. And they're efficient! One moment you're chatting about yard work and the next moment you're bald as a newborn baby. Environment is clean and calming. Definitely recommend!
