Medical Acne Facial Treatments
What Is a Medical Acne Facial Treatment?
For people who experience problems that stem from acne outbreaks, medical facials may be a great option for treating the area and also for preventing future outbreaks. Acne can make you self-conscious or embarrassed about your overall appearance, but with the right treatments, acne is treatable. With regular medical facials, you can control your particular acne-based issues far more effectively.
What Can I Expect with My Medical Acne Facial?
Our skilled medical estheticians specialize in treating and clearing acne blemishes with a combination of treatment options. After consulting with the patient, the esthetician may elect to perform a few different procedures during your medical facial. You might undergo steaming and deep cleaning; your facial could also involve a chemical peel, extractions or even microdermabrasion. The type of medical facial will depend on skin type and the severity of your acne. We do ensure that your skin, deep into the pores, will be thoroughly cleaned. You will leave with skin that feels softer, smoother and healthier.
How are Medical Facials Different?
While many rave about how relaxing a spa facial can be, a medical acne facial is focused on giving you the type of skin that is more resistant to acne bacteria. Not to mention, as we perform this treatment under the direction and guidance of a board-certified dermatologist, you know that your skin is getting the attention it needs, and that ultimately your complexion will be much clearer and smoother.
How Often Should I Have a Medical Acne Facial?
This varies from patient to patient. Depending on your skin type and the frequency of your acne outbreaks, we recommend regular medical facials to keep your skin as clean and as healthy as possible. We always encourage patients to see us for a facial and/or extraction rather than attempting to “pop” their own zits. A definite no-no, popping pimples can lead to scarring and even infection.
