Get an Acne Facial Before the Holidays

When planning your skincare regimen to get a lovely glow for the holiday season, an acne facial is a must if you have acne-prone skin. Your dermatologist can help you schedule one for optimized and timely results for the festive season. Acne facials are safe for individuals with mild acne and your skincare provider can help you determine if this type of treatment is appropriate for you.

Professional acne facials can have more satisfying results than at-home versions, and a dermatologist or experienced esthetician will know how to avoid skin irritation when choosing what to use for your facial. Facials are no cure for acne and provide temporary relief and results, but they can be useful as part of a treatment plan to reduce inflammation and redness and brighten your skin.

Reduces Oil Production

A key part of an acne facial is exfoliation that removes the skin’s surface layers. During the exfoliation process, your skincare provider unclogs pores and promotes healthy oil flow through your skin cells. This reduces excess oil production, which usually causes oily skin. Bringing oil production to a normal level lowers the risk of irritation and helps prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and breakouts.

Removes Skin Impurities

Acne causes a backlog of dead skin cells, which thickens the skin and makes for an uneven complexion. Professional acne facials extract a variety of skin impurities to clear up your skin and encourage the production of new skin cells.

A facial tailored for acne treatment removes the following:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Dead skin
  • Excess sebum (oil)

Removing blackheads and whiteheads prevents them from turning into full-blown pimples, which can lead to more visible scarring.

Manages Acne Bacteria

The benefits of acne facials are both healing and prevention. A customized acne facial can reduce and control acne bacteria. In turn, this helps lower the risk of more acne development. The reduced presence of acne bacteria plays an important role in preventing acne-related breakouts.

Treats Inflammation

An acne facial also helps minimize acne scars and hyper-pigmentation. Restoring proper skin hydration sooths inflammation and improves your skin texture. Regular acne facials can reduce the risk of future acne scarring. Your dermatologist can determine an appropriate treatment plan, including acne facials to maintain healthier skin.
