5 Acne Treatment Options For Your Spa

5 Acne Treatment Options For Your Spa

There are so many acne treatment options to choose from when shopping for back bar products that will set your spa apart.  Finding a treatment option that works for a client can be based on so many factors.  Treating underlying cause is one consideration in your treatment option.  However, acne disrupts the skin and causes damage such as inflammation and then post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Acne treatments can require a multifaceted approach.

What Treatments Help Clear Up Acne?

Knowing that over-profliferation of keratin within the pore is a characteristic of acne tells us that professional exfoliating treatments are necessary, but we must do so with caution as acne can also be inflammatory. A slow approach to peeling the skin or even performing a gentle enzyme is a great way to treat an acne client. Regular extractions are also necessary since the microcomedones in the skin can be present well before they manifest into an acne lesion. Being ahead of the problem is the idea here!

Home care is the most important part in acne treatment and can be a confusing subject as there are many misleading marketing terms printed on skin care products and makeup. I have seen many products touting that they are “noncomedogenic” or “nonpore clogging” with pore clogging ingredients in the deck. Remember that these are marketing terms and are not regulated by any organization to hold them accountable to their claims. Studying ingredients and researching the comedogenicity scale is essential to knowing what is safe for use on an acne prone skin.”
