What is an Acne Facial?

An acne facial is a specialized skincare treatment designed to target acne-prone skin and alleviate its associated symptoms. Unlike traditional facials that primarily focus on cleansing and rejuvenating the skin’s surface, an acne facial goes deeper to address the root causes of acne, such as excess oil production, clogged pores, inflammation, and bacterial overgrowth.

Critical Components of an Acne Facial

One of the defining features of an acne facial is its customization to suit the individual’s unique skin type and concerns. We conduct thorough consultations to assess the client’s skin condition and tailor the treatment accordingly.

Deep Cleansing

The first step in an acne facial involves deep cleansing to rid the skin of impurities, excess oil, and debris that can clog pores and contribute to acne formation. This step typically includes gentle yet effective cleansers and steam to soften the skin and open pores.


Exfoliation is crucial for removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, which helps prevent future breakouts. Depending on the individual’s skin sensitivity and needs, exfoliation methods may include chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) and gentle physical exfoliation techniques.


Manual extraction of black and whiteheads and other pore-clogging impurities is a fundamental aspect of an acne facial. Skilled aestheticians use specialized tools like our Preston comedone Rxtractor and techniques to safely remove these impurities without causing damage to the skin.

Targeted Treatments

Targeted treatments are incorporated into the facial to address specific acne-related concerns such as inflammation, bacteria, and excess oil production. These may include serums, masks, or spot treatments containing ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or sulfur to combat acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation.

Soothing Mask

After thoroughly treating and cleaning the skin, a soothing mask is applied to calm inflammation, hydrate the skin, and promote healing. Ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, etc. are commonly used to soothe and nourish the skin post-treatment.

Skincare Recommendations

To maintain the results of the acne facial and prevent future breakouts, skincare professionals often provide personalized recommendations for at-home skincare products. These may include cleansers, moisturizers, and targeted treatments tailored to the individual’s skin type and concerns.

Benefits of an Acne Facial

An acne facial offers many benefits beyond immediate skin appearance improvement. Here, we explore the advantages of undergoing this specialized skincare treatment:

Clearer Skin

By targeting the underlying causes of acne, an acne facial helps to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and minimize the appearance of acne lesions, resulting in more precise and healthier-looking skin.

Improved Skin Texture

Regular exfoliation and deep cleansing promote cell turnover, leading to smoother skin texture and tone.

Reduced Risk of Scarring

By effectively treating acne breakouts and preventing new ones from forming, acne facials can help reduce the risk of scarring associated with acne.

Enhanced Self-Confidence

Clear, healthy skin can boost self-esteem and confidence levels, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance.

In summary, an acne facial is a specialized skincare treatment that offers targeted solutions for those struggling with acne-prone skin. With its personalized approach and comprehensive techniques, an acne facial provides an effective means of achieving clearer, healthier skin and restoring confidence in one’s appearance.
