Different types of facial treatments for acne-prone skin

Are you someone who always suffers from a breakout or two? One of the major troubles anyone suffering from acne will face is taking care of the rest of the skin surrounding the acne. So if you have a breakout on your cheek, you will be afraid of getting any moisturizer or serum on the rest of the face just to avoid aggravation. Your primary concern will be taking care of the acne while neglecting the rest of the face. Things can become nasty and painful, and getting a facial will never be on your list. However, you will be surprised to know that we have some facial treatments that go well on acne-prone skin. Every skin type is different, and picking up the right facial can help calm your skin.

Would you like to know more about the different skin types? Here at Aesthetic Spa Facial Academy, we teach our students the basics of skincare, different types of skin conditions, and how they can effectively tackle them. So taking care of your acne is simple; all you need to do is look at the right place.

Different types of facial treatments for acne-prone skin

There is no single cure for all skin problems. Similarly, there are different skin conditions, different acne types, and the cure will essentially differ. Here at Aesthetic Spa Facial Academy, we go deep into the basics of skincare. Our courses include understanding different skin conditions and how to tackle them.

Facials work well when paired with other skincare products. They do not cure acne completely; however, they do help with calming the skin. However, make sure that you are not already going through any other medical treatment.

Classic Facial

A classic facial includes cleansing, exfoliating and massaging. Cleansing will help clear any dust or dirt particles on your skin, while exfoliating will help remove the dead skin cells that bury your new skin cells. The last step is massaging your skin with a gentle moisturizer that helps hydrate your skin, giving it a more even tone. This facial helps remove blackheads and whiteheads, which later on develop into acne. The goal of this facial is to feel rested and relaxed.

Decongesting Facial

This facial treatment is a professional pore digging technique that will focus on unblocking the pores. This facial is directed at removing the blackheads, whiteheads, and any minor breakouts, giving you clear and smooth skin. The facial will not target the root cause of acne but instead work on only a few bumps and small pimples. The cysts and nodules should not be extracted during these treatments.

LED Facial

LED Facial is a non-invasive facial treatment that works on treating multiple skin issues along with acne. This treatment uses a combination of white, red, and blue infrared light to target the specific concerns of the skin. This is a professional facial that not only removes the acne-causing bacteria from the skin but also builds up collagen, which in turn tones up your skin. This treatment works well with sensitive skin targeting active acne and goes deep into your skin, and acts as an anti-inflammatory treatment. You can start noticing the results after the first session.


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, the epidermis. The gentle treatment is one of the fastest ways to get that healthy glow back into your skin. This requires the use of a small handheld device that clears away the top dead skin layer. The facial lasts for about 30-40 minutes and results in brighter, smoother, and even tone skin. This facial treatment targets blackheads, whiteheads, discolorations, and depressed scars.


Brightening facial treatment includes a mixture of peels, masks, and serums. This treatment uses chemical peels that work to remove the scars left after the acne. This treatment works two ways; they would slow down the melanin production and peel away the top layer containing the deep scars. You will have to go through multiple sessions until the desired results are achieved. This helps improve skin texture and get the even tone skin.


Enzymes are a natural facial treatment that encourages the regeneration of new skin cells. These are made using the fruits, which are then turned into a peel-off mask. This works by breaking away the dead skin cells present in the top layer of the skin. These dead cells contain keratin protein, which breaks down, leaving a brighter and cleaner face. In addition, this peels away any dust and bacteria along with it. These work best for depressed acne scars and discolorization.


Before you go for any of your facial treatments, make sure to note your current treatment, if there is any. The advanced facials, such as LED and peels off are made always done by experienced aestheticians. ASFA offers a wide range of online facial courses, which are easy to understand and cover the basics of each skin type and condition.
