- How many treatments will i need?
Depending on your skin concern, most people with oily, congested and blackhead prone skin require a deep exfoliating and blackhead removal facial every 4-6 weeks to prevent congestion or blocked pores. It is also essential that you use the correct medical skin products and our advanced skin therapist can advise you on which products you need on the day of treatment.
- Will this treatment shrink my pores?
It will help, but to shrink already enlarged pores is a difficult thing to achieve. If the pore size is your main concern, then you are likely to need a combination of our medical skincare products plus this anti-acne facial every 6 weeks to clean out the pores and Dermapen to reduce the pore-size of already stretched pores. The combination of these three things will reverse any stretching to pores and give amazing pore-less looking skin. Your aesthetic skin therapist will be able to discuss with you during your skin analysis how these treatments can be combined.
- Should i exfoliate my skin if i have acne?
Exfoliation is very important for treating acne and blackheads. Using a blackhead removal facial or facial for acne helps remove dead skin which helps reduce bacteria thriving on them.
- Are there any side effects?
Possible side effects include redness, irritation, and dryness in the treated area, but these are usually mild and tend not to last long. Most clients are able to return to work or daily activities immediately after treatment.
A full list of possible risks and side effects will be discussed during your face-to-face consultation.
- Who can have this treatment?
Suitable for both males and females and all ethnicities.
- Who should not have this treatment?
If you have dry and very sensitive skin, then this is not the best facial for you. Your aesthetic therapist will be able to advise which facial is best for your skin during your skin analysis consultation.
