Acne Facial

What is an Acne Facial?

The Acne Facial at Clear Choice Dermatology is a skincare treatment for those with acne-prone skin problems such as cystic acne, oily skin, and clogged pores. Acne facial treatments focus primarily on extractions to unclog pores and kill bacteria in the skin using effective skincare products suited for your skin type. This type of facial is perfect for reducing inflammation for mild to moderate acne. It can help remove excess oil for oily to combination-type skin and help prevent acne in sensitive skin types.


All types of facials provide a deeper clean, but acne facials offer more targeted steps to address stubborn spots.  

  • Treats active blemishes
  • Prevents future breakouts
  • Improves skin hydration
  • Unclogging pores 
  • Reducing irritation
  • Reducing oil production
  • Killing acne-causing bacteria

What To Expect

Your treatment will start with a skin assessment to help your esthetician determine your facial treatment protocol and help identify how often you should ideally visit the spa and what products you should use in your home care routine. After the assessment, the esthetician will double cleanse the skin, apply treatments such as an exfoliating peel and mask, and perform techniques such as steaming and extractions. Finally, they will end the treatment with a moisturizer and SPF to ensure your skin is nourished and protected.

Products and treatment methods used during the treatment depend on your skin type and the result you want to achieve. During the consultation, your aesthetician will first analyze your skin type to design a treatment program best suited for your skin type. Every patient is a unique individual, and every treatment has unique aspects. Therefore, individual results vary from patient to patient.
