How to Identify and Treat Acne with Facials

What Is An Acne Facial?

An acne facial is a cosmetic facial that helps to calm down the symptoms of acne. There are various methods for facials for acne, because there are dozens of types of acne and skin types. An acne facial differs depending on your skin type, severity of your acne, the featured method. Acne facials will feature some of the following methods:

Decongesting Facials

After cleansing the face, the aesthetician will squeeze out the gunk that’s inside your pores. You can think of it like professional pimple popping. Once finished, the skin will appear smoother and cleaner. This method is best suited for whiteheads and blackheads. Larger pimples and cysts cannot be treated with a Decongesting facial.


Microdermabrasion is the method that uses the exfoliating tool. The aesthetician will spend approximately 20 to 30 minutes buffing the epidermis (top layer of the skin). After fully exfoliating, the face is then cleansed with a light cleanser and a moisturizer is applied. This technique will create another and cleaner skin with a more even skin tone.

LED Facials

Before an LED acne facial, the face must first be cleansed. After thoroughly cleaning it, a combination of red, blue, and white light is emitted either from a stationary machine or a face mask. This light treats several symptoms and causes of acne. The red light promotes collagen production. The blue light kills the bacteria causing inflammation, and the white light helps to even out the skin tone.

Brightening Facials

This technique is all about creating flawless skin. Using a combination of acids, solutions,and antioxidants, the face is lathered with this mixture and will be left to rest for a determined period of time. When time is up, it is wiped off. Over the next few days, the results will slowly but surely become visible. Results include smooth skin, reduced wrinkles, reduced appearance of acne scars, and even toned skin.

What Are The Benefits of Acne Facials?

Regardless of the acne facial method used, the skin can benefit from them. From smoother skin to an even skin tone, and possibly less breakouts, acne facials can truly aid the skin in looking and feeling healthier.

While acne facials cannot get rid of severe acne, if done by a professional, it can promote healing creating a healthy condition for your acne to disappear with continued skin care.
