Acne facials are very commonly used today by people wanting to manage their acne, and treating acne scars. Today consumers have less expensive option of at home treatments that are very effective.
However, in-salon acne facials are still very popular which includes microdermabrasion treatments, laser treatments, deep pore cleansing that eliminates bacteria, and specialized products or treatments.
Usually, microdermabrasion acne facials are done by a doctor, nurse, or skin specialist. Typically skin is polished with aluminum hydroxide crystals, and there is little ‘down time’. The purpose of this is to remove old skin cells, diminish scars, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, as well as hyperpigmentation, freckles and sun spots. This often requires a series of treatments anywhere from 5 to 10.
The book “Acne No More” discusses in more detail about acne facial and the type of treatments needed to get rid off acne once in for all.
Microdermabrasion products are readily available, making this a very cost effective home treatment. One can now buy microdermabrasion kits for as little as $60 for ten treatments. After one treatment, one can expect skin to be looking younger, more even, with fine bumps disappearing while skin begins to glow.
After 3-4 treatments, acne scars and hyperpigmentation will gradually start to lessen while collagen levels start to increase, making skin more plump and youthful. After 8-10 treatments, wrinkles are minimized and acne scars become lighter and less visible.
