Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. It doesn’t just affect teens, either! Your genes, hormonal changes, diet, certain medications, and stress can all contribute to breakouts. There are so many tips and tricks for fighting acne out there, that it can be hard to know where to begin.
When treating acne, it’s important to address the causes, not just the symptoms. Otherwise, you’re fighting a losing battle! Keeping your skin clean and healthy is a daily routine, but if you’re looking to take your skincare to the next level, you don’t need to look any further.
At Entre Nous Aesthetics, we use HydraFacial for acne treatments and ongoing skincare for many of our patients.
How HydraFacial treats acne: 3 Ways
Every step of the HydraFacial can help treat and prevent breakouts!
The first step of the HydraFacial provides a deep cleanse to clear away excess oil, dead skin, and acne-causing bacteria. The exfoliating peel uses glycolic and salicylic acid, two ingredients regularly used to address acne.
With gentle extractions, HydraFacial clears your pores of blackheads, sebum, and other gunk that can clog them and lead to breakouts.
Customized boosters provide relief from redness and irritation, as well as treat active acne and prevent future breakouts.
HydraFacials are gentle enough that you can get them once a month. Most patients start to see improvements in their acne with just a few treatments.
You might be wondering: can I get a HydraFacial with active acne, though?
Absolutely! When your skin is experiencing an acne flare up, that’s the perfect time to give your skin an extra boost with a HydraFacial.
Before your appointment, you’ll sit down with one of our aestheticians to map out your treatment plan. They’ll talk you through which boosters will help you get the most benefits from your HydraFacial.
