Acne Facial

A 75 minute Acne facial includes 15 minutes of Photobiomodulation to help resolve acne lesions. The facial concludes with Lightwave LED Blue Light Therapy to eliminate P. Acnes bacteria after your Microdermabrasion Facial. 

This advanced cosmetic procedure is commonly used to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin and reduce inflammation. It works by gently exfoliating the outer layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, and stimulating collagen production, while also killing the bacteria that causes acne. 

About LED Light therapy

Research has shown that LED light therapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with arthritis.


Simply put, the LED light provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. Fiibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue to increase the rate of wound healing and calm down irritated skin and acne lesions. 

The Treatment Process

Your facial begins with steam and deep cleansing. Microdermabrasion follows as I target your skin with varied amounts of exfoliation. This enables me to focus the resurfacing power of dermabrasion to reduce areas of mild scarring.   This if followed by an enzyme mask under steam which softens the skin for proper extractions.  

This treatment is generally safe for most skin types and I customize your treatment according to your individual needs and preferences. For very inflamed/pustular skin I recommend a Microdermabrasion Facial with Topical Light Infusion Treatment (Blemish Control) to improve acne lesions dramatically. 

An Acne Facial is great for:

-Reducing Inflammation 
-Exfoliating the skin, revealing smoother and brighter skin.
-Improving mild acne scars and unclogging pores.
-Fading hyperpigmentation and evening out skin tone.
-Smoothing rough or uneven skin texture.
-Revitalizing dull complexion for a fresher, more vibrant look.

- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Results 

This treatment is mostly painless and there is no down time.  You will notice improvement in healthier skin as the treatments progress. A series of Acne Facials are needed to bring deeper transformation to acne prone skin. And people say it’s worth doing!  In addition, we discuss your lifestyle, diet and habits.  I"m not a nutritionist, but I'm sure I can make a few good recommendations on how to get you to happier and healthier skin. 

I recommend an initial series of 6-8 treatments, 2 weeks apart, followed by monthly maintenance treatments. For boosted results, consider combining add-on treatments like LED Red Light Therapy with Topical Light Infusion Treatments For Acne.
