How Can a Medical Facial Help My Acne?

How Can a Medical Facial Help My Acne?

Posted in Clear Clinic by . | Leave a Comment
Medical facials can be quite helpful for acne, particularly non-inflammatory (or comedonal) acne.  During a medical facial, a certified esthetician will first steam your skin to open up your pores.  After a few minutes of steam, she will then use medical grade equipment to clean our clogged pores and comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) that have formed on the skin.  This process helps to speed up the improvement of acne, often giving prescription medications a head start by clearing up existing acne and allowing the prescription medications to absorb well into the skin to prevent future acne.  During some medical facials, the esthetician will apply a chemical peel to the skin, to further exfoliate dead skin cells and clear up clogged pores and comedonal acne.  Chemical peels, such as salicylic acid peels, can be very beneficial when added to a medical facial.  The ingredients in a chemical peel penetrate the skin more deeply than traditional medications, to help clear up acne quickly. Dr. Schweiger explains that, "A medical facial is different than a facial that you may receive outside of the doctor's office.  Under the close watch of a dermatologist, medical estheticians receive special training to identify the unique needs of acne prone skin.  Our estheticians will often call me in to visit a patient who they feel could use treatment for their acne in addition to the medical facial; we work closely as a team to provide the most optimal care for our acne patients."
