Facials For Acne
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people of all ages. Most people think that acne is just a teenage thing, but that isn't true. At mod society facial + maskbar in Flower Mound, we see so many people who didn't have acne as a teen, but suddenly in their 30's or 40's they start dealing with breakouts! Acne is caused by a combination of factors, including hormonal changes, overactive oil glands, and bacteria on the skin. While there are various treatment options available, acne facials can be an effective way to help treat acne.
Facials are a type of skincare treatment that involve cleaning, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin. They can also include additional treatments such as extractions, masks, and massages. When it comes to treating acne, facials can help in several ways.
First, the cleaning and exfoliating step of a facial can help to remove excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to acne. This can help to unblock pores, which can reduce the risk of new acne forming.
Second, facials can include extractions, which involve manually removing blackheads and whiteheads. This can help to reduce the number of acne breakouts on the skin.
Third, facials can include masks that are specifically designed to target acne. For example, masks containing concentrated salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can help to unclog pores and kill bacteria, which can reduce the risk of new breakouts. At mod society we have powerful masks that we use in our acne facials, but we also have strong chemical peels to help increase the cell turnover speed. Out with the bad clogged cells and in with the new. Ask your esthi about if a peel would be right for you.
Fourthly, one of our favorite words - MODALITIES. We have multiple, effective acne treatments in our modality toolbox. One of them is called Galvanic. Galvanic uses direct electric current to liquify the sebum under your skin and it makes extractions much easier. It literally removes pore congestion that causes breakouts. It sounds like magic, but it's not. It's science! We also use Blue LED, High Frequency, and Oxygen facial modalities to treat acne. Trust us, we hate acne and we want to see you get clear.
Along with an acne facial, it is important to have a good skincare routine at home and to avoid things that can worsen acne, such as touching your face, using oily hair products, or eating high-sugar diets. Pro tip - letting your wet hair dry down can cause "fungal acne" on your forehead.
Finally, the absolutely most important thing to remember is that if you get an acne facial once a month, it will not make a dramatic improvement to your skin if you are not using the proper home care. Acne Products (such as One Society Skincare) are essential to treating acne. If you can't afford monthly facials, your money will be better spent on a full acne product regimen. Come see us in Flower Mound, TX and we can make you a full treatment plan using our acne products. If you do not have an appointment, it's best to call and arrange a time for an Esthetician to speak with you about your acne. Unfortunately, buying just one acne product will probably not get rid of your acne. You will need to pick up a full set. That is not a sales tactic, it's just the truth. To effectively treat acne, you have to have the right cleanser, toner, moisturizer, BPO (or BPO alternative) for your skin and level of acne. If you cannot afford to buy products, please call us and we may be able to work something out. The last thing we at mod society want is to see someone in our community who needs acne treatment but has to walk away because they can't afford it. Depending on the situation, we may be able to offer free products for members in our community who are dealing with acne and can't afford treatment.
In conclusion, acne facials can be an effective way to help treat adult acne or teen acne. They can help to remove excess oil and dirt, unblock pores, and reduce the number of acne breakouts on the skin. However, it's important to work with a skincare professional to find the right facial for your specific skin type and concerns. We are offering acne facials near you, if you live in the DFW area.
