In an acne facial, your skin care specialist will throughly cleanse your face and clean out clogged pores. A through skin preparation is followed by extraction of white heads and black heads (known as comedones). The addition of properly chosen topical preparations during your treatment and a home care routine prescribed by your dermatologist optimizes the outcome. Addition of a chemical peel or laser treatment for acne (performed by a physician) is a common add-on. Keep in mind that acne is a medical condition and should always be evaluated by a dermatologist before any treatment is undertaken.
