Can a Facial Help My Acne?

Acne can occur at any age, and managing sensitive or oily skin can be a hassle. Maintaining good hygiene and a consistent skincare routine at home is important, but a professional acne facial might be exactly what your skin needs. Acne facials are designed to reduce inflammation and clear out your pores, taming acne in the process. 

At the Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, Dr. Stefanie Feldman and her team provide a range of facial treatments for all skin types and conditions, including facials that can help calm acne outbreaks. 

Understanding acne 

Acne comes in many shapes and forms, and it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s causing your breakouts. Sensitive skin, hormones, excess oils, and even bacteria can all lead to acne, and even the most effective skincare plan can occasionally fail. 

Taming acne requires more than cleansers and moisturizers. First, you need to identify what type of acne you’re experiencing: inflammatory or noninflammatory. 

Non-inflammatory acne includes some of the most common types: blackheads and whiteheads. These are often caused by clogged pores, and might clear up after a cleansing facial or skin peel. 

Inflammatory acne is rather painful and obvious. When bacteria gets into your pores, it can lead to redness, swelling, and fluid buildup. Cysts, papules, and other forms of inflammatory acne are usually tender and unsightly. You might need some help clearing up these breakouts, but acne facials can reduce redness and pain. 

Best facials for acne 

At the Vitality Institute of Agoura, each of our facials uses different ingredients and treatments, and every option is tailored to a different skin problem. We offer facials that target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne. 

If you have a congested complexion and want to cover your bases, the acne facial deep-cleans and rejuvenates your skin in a single session. This includes exfoliation, extraction, cleansing, steam, and a soothing face mask. 

Before your acne facial begins, our team will perform a skin analysis. This helps us determine what type of skin you have, and what treatments will work best. This information helps us put together a skincare routine that will work for you. After your facial, you’ll receive a customized skincare consultation. 

We also offer peels, microdermabrasion, and electrical toning to keep your skin supple and refreshed. Once your acne is manageable, we can help you add the finishing touches to your complexion and prevent further breakouts.
