How Can a Facial Help Your Acne?
Fighting acne can be overwhelming, daunting, and exhausting. We hear you!
Let’s start with the very basics. Acne can be caused by a variety of factors including hormonal fluctuations, genetics and diet. But at the core of it all, pimples form because of the buildup of oil, dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria in your pores.
Using acne-fighting products containing ingredients such as salicylic acid at home is a must to take care of your skin on a regular basis. But if you are really looking for a boost in results, getting an acne-targeted facial from a professional esthetician can greatly contribute to getting your breakouts under control once and for all.
In an acne-fighting facial, an esthetician is able to use professional-grade (potent!) skincare products to deep cleanse your pores, control sebum, and hydrate the skin to a level that your at-home products simply cannot. Estheticians are also trained to clean out pores safely with extractions so that you aren’t left with any scarring or hyperpigmentation.
When looking for a good acne facial, make sure to go to a place that uses professional-grade products and more importantly, has well-trained estheticians who know how to use those ingredients properly and customized to your specific skin type and needs.
At Silver Mirror, our Acne-Fighting facial includes a professional double exfoliation (very important to get skin balanced), serum infusion with active and calming ingredients, high-frequency to kill bacteria in the skin, a full session of red and blue LED light therapy (which is proven to improve acne) and oxygen therapy to balance and re-hydrate the skin.
Receiving routine facials is a must to help keep your skin healthy and to manage on-going acne and breakouts. It’s always important to keep in mind that your own daily skin maintenance routine is crucial, but the combination of a great facial and a great skincare routine can have impressive results.
Regular facials can also change the way you view and understand your skin and how it changes. At Silver Mirror, our estheticians provide customers with expert skin analysis and the opportunity to work with a professional to address, improve, and maintain the skin with the right treatments and products.
