Facials can be an excellent way to help treat and clear up acne. However, there may be some acne sufferers who should temporarily refrain from getting facials for a few different reasons. Let us explore the different options for those struggling with stubborn acne.
The good news is that certain types of facials can be excellent for certain types of acne. That’s right: the effectiveness of a facial will depend on the type of facial and the source of acne. Acne, like many skin conditions, is not a one-size-fits-all description. The cause of acne has different sources. For those suffering from mild and/or comedonal acne (characterised by localised areas of redness, blackheads, whiteheads, mild swelling, and occasional breakouts) facials can help this type of acne. However, if one’s acne is more severe (characterised by having 20 to more than 100 whiteheads or blackheads, 15 to 50 or more inflamed bumps, or 30 to more than 125 total lesions) certain facials can actually cause more irritation. For more severe cases, it is better to first see a dermatologist and receive a prescription medication before experimenting with facials. After the severity of the acne has subsided, a patient may then receive a facial.
In addition, the type of facial will also determine the effectiveness of treating one’s acne. Today there are over a couple of dozen different facial options! Deep cleansing facials (with pore extractions), facials that use LED lights, Oxgeneo 3-in-1 facials, and microdermabrasion facials are all excellent types of facials to help heal those suffering from light to moderate cases of acne. Therefore, it is important to seek out an aesthetician who is experienced in performing facials with the purpose of clearing and healing acne. They will help you choose the right type of the facial as well as make a proper follow-up plan to help continue the healing process.
Therefore, if you suffer from acne, facials can be an excellent way to help heal your skin . However, it is absolutely essential that you speak with a qualified aesthetician about the type and severity of the acne that you suffer from in order to give you the best possible treatment plan.
