Acne is a common skin condition characterized by pustules, pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. While some acne can be managed with over-the-counter products, others require the help of a dermatologist or acne facial specialist. An acne facial specialist is a skin care professional who specializes in treating acne and other skin conditions such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne scarring using a combination of dermatologic and cosmetic treatments. They may also perform additional examinations, such as skin evaluations, to help determine the best course of treatment for their patients.
An acne facial is a facial treatment that specifically targets acne and its related issues. It can include a variety of treatments such as chemical peels, topical lotions and skincare creams, which are used to treat acne and other skin conditions. An acne facial can improve the appearance of the skin, and can help reduce the visible appearance of blemishes.
The type of facial that is best for acne is different in each situation and depends upon a variety of factors, such as:
– The type of acne
– The severity of the acne
– Skin sensitivity and type
– Location of acne
– Cause of acne
– History of acne treatments
– Frequency of facial treatments
– The skill of the esthetician
People with minor acne often experience great results from more basic and less intense facials, especially when used alongside other suitable skincare products. However, those with moderate to severe acne (more than 30 lesions in total) may not receive promising outcomes from milder facial treatments and often require a specialized and custom-tailored facial designed specifically for their type of acne.
Yes, acne facials can help clear pimples, but more than one treatment is almost always required to experience the best results. As with any acne treatment, getting results from facials takes time and usually requires a series of acne facials, typically scheduled once a week to once every two weeks. To receive the greatest benefit from acne facials, it is imperative to be consistent with acne treatments and skincare routines at home.
The type of products used in an acne facial also play a huge role in the improvement patients see. For example, non-inflammatory blemishes, such as comedones, typically respond well to cleansing solutions that can clear out clogged pores and purify the skin. Mild inflammatory acne, which is characterized by localized areas of redness and swelling, can usually be successfully treated with acne facials; this includes people who have a few pimples or those who only break out occasionally. Acne facials typically achieve the best results for people with comedonal acne, the type characterized by whiteheads and blackheads.
Because each acne facial is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of each individual, the exact process can vary. Some acne facial treatments involve comedonal extractions, which is the manual release of pore blockages and comedones. Due to the complexity and widespread nature of acne, the esthetician will not be able to remove every blackhead and whitehead during the first visit; however, enough should be removed to provide an immediate improvement in the look and feel of the skin.
Other acne facials may include applying creams, lotions or scrubs to the skin, some of which may be left on for several minutes before being removed. The esthetician will go over the details of the procedure with the patient before the facial is performed, where they will determine the best plan of action for addressing the patient’s skin concerns.
