Acne Treatment VS A Facial
Updated: May 3
I know what you're thinking, tomato-tomahto. But at Nirvana by Autumn there really is a difference between a traditional facial and the acne treatments offered at the acne studio.
Facials come in all shapes, sizes, and modalities- exfoliating, hydrating, oxygenating, you name it! While having a facial can be heavenly, the effects may not be long lasting for treating your acne because they don't always get to the root cause of your breakouts.
Whereas, the acne treatments performed at the studio address your acne and skin condition at a deeper level.
Acne treatments consist of:
✨Appropriate exfoliation for your skin type, type of acne and your physical condition. Proper exfoliation allows the products to penetrate the skin and drive into the pores much more effectively.
✨Hydration of the skin is necessary for more rapid healing of the lesions and to make your skin more receptive to your home-care acne regimen. The acne products have a tendency to dry out the skin as you are getting used to them.
✨Extractions to remove the acne impactions that are closer to the surface, allowing the lesions to heal more quickly.
✨Modalities, ingredients, and treatments to combat the bacteria inside the pore.
✨Lifting and lightening of any dark spots that may be a result of your acne lesions.
Acne treatments are preformed bi-weekly until your skin is clear.
As an esthetician with 7 years of experience, I make it a point to keep up with the latest education and technology. I have created protocols that are designed to give your clear skin within my unique acne program. I create a personalized acne treatment plan for a client by evaluating their skin, lifestyle, nutrition, hormonal health, stress, and heredity factors.
My goal is to create a path for clear, healthy skin with 3-4 months with treatments, products, and skin coaching.
