Silver Mirror can a Facial Help Your Acne

Fighting acne can be overwhelming, daunting, and exhausting. We hear you! Let’s start with the very basics. A variety of factors cause, acne including hormonal fluctuations, genetics, and diet. But at the core of it all, pimples form because of the buildup of oil, dirt, dead skin cells, and bacteria in pores.

Using acne-fighting products containing salicylic acid at home is a must for regularly taking care of the skin. However, you can get a boost in results with an acne-targeted facial. A professional esthetician can greatly contribute to getting breakouts under control once and for all. In an acne-fighting facial, an esthetician is able to use professional-grade (potent!) skincare products to deep cleanse pores, control sebum, and hydrate the skin to a level that at-home products simply cannot. Estheticians clean out pores safely with extractions leaving zero scarring or hyperpigmentation.

When looking for a good acne facial, make sure to go to a place that uses professional-grade products. But, more importantly, search for well-trained estheticians who use those ingredients properly and customize facials to specific skin types and needs. At Silver Mirror, our Acne-Fighting facial includes a professional double exfoliation (very important to get skin balanced), serum infusion with active and calming ingredients, high-frequency to kill bacteria in the skin, a full session of red and blue LED light therapy (proven to improve acne) and oxygen therapy to balance and re-hydrate the skin.

Receiving routine facials is a must to help keep your skin healthy and manage ongoing acne and breakouts. It’s always important to keep in mind daily skin maintenance routine is crucial. Combining a great facial and a great skincare routine can have impressive results.

Regular facials can also change the way you view and understand your skin, as well as how it changes. At Silver Mirror, our estheticians provide customers with an expert skin analysis. Take advantage of the opportunity to work with a professional to address, improve, and maintain the skin with the right treatments and products.
