Yesterday, my friend, Lisa, and I decided to stop at a winery for a little R&R. While sipping wine on the outside patio, Lisa looked at me and said,
“My acne is getting out of control and making me embarrassed to show up to work. I thought when we were close to turning 30 years old; we were supposed to have clear skin. Seriously, I had a patient ask me what was wrong with my face. Brutal, right? I keep hearing about facials helping, but do they really help cure acne? Is it worth the money? I’m just ready to have clear skin.”
Do Facials Cure All Types of Acne?
While we are all wishing for a cure for adult acne, the answer is unfortunately not as simple as getting a facial. Now, before you run away from a spa, please consider a few things:
- What type of acne are you suffering from?
- Level of Stress?
- Take a few minutes everyday to practice meditation.
- Cut out things that cause stress.
- Daily Skin Care Regimen?
- What products are you using?
- Always wash your face twice a day.
- Do not touch your face.
- Sorry, but cut back on the amount of makeup you wear. Your skin needs to breathe. Try not wearing makeup on the weekends.
Now, the answer to your question is, “not always.” Facials will definitely help more if you are suffering from blackheads and whiteheads. However, if you are suffering from inflammatory acne, then you may not notice the effects as much as someone else. Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge advocate for facials because of stress relief and removing dirt from your skin. You will benefit from facials regardless of your type of acne because our aestheticians can cleanse your skin on a deeper level.
When you get a facial, discuss your daily routine and products with your aesthetician. We can typically offer suggestions or tell you about ingredients that may be causing problems. Either way, yes, facials are worth the money.
What Type of Facial was Created for Acne Prone Skin?
Bellezza Spa offers a Intraceutical Oxygen Facial with Infusion for acne prone, oily, uneven complexions, and downright stubborn skin issues.
Deep Cleansing 101:
The intraceutical facial was designed for men and women of all ages who suffer from similar skin issues like acne, oily skin, and uneven complexion. Our trained aestheticians will be able to cleanse your skin deeper than you can and even remove pore-clogging sebum. Sebum is what causes blackheads, so you will thank our aestheticians for preventing it.
What to Expect:
- Thorough steaming
- Deep cleansing
- Facial extraction components
- Incorporation of salicylic and glycolic acid
- Oxygen infusion
At the end of the day, I will honestly say that facials are worth the money. There are many types of acne and different causes, so it can be hard to navigate on your own. Even if you have cystic acne, you are prone to typical blackheads. Facials help remove dead skin and dirt that cannot only cause acne, but also make your face look dull and lifeless. Give life to your skin with a Intraceutical Oxygen facial or other signature facials at Bellezza Spa.
