Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Acne Awareness Month serves as a reminder to educate and raise awareness about acne, its causes, and effective prevention and treatment methods. While acne can be distressing and impact one’s self-esteem, seeking professional help can make a significant difference. Regular visits with skincare professionals can provide individuals with the guidance, treatments, and support they need to manage and prevent acne effectively.
Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria. Hormonal fluctuations, excess oil production, inflammation, and certain lifestyle factors can contribute to the development of acne. While acne commonly affects teenagers, it can persist into adulthood or appear later in life.

Here are some of our favorite treatments that can be included in creating a customized care plan for our clients to help combat acne and acne scarring:
This treatment involves deep cleansing techniques that help remove excess oil, dirt and debris that contributes to clogged pores and acne breakouts. After ensuring that the skin is properly cleansed, the treatment would then be followed by a laser therapy that has anti-inflammatory benefits. The application of laser helps eliminate bacteria, prevent future acne flare-ups, and help reduce the frequency and severity of breakouts.
VI Peel Purify is specifically tailored to target acne and help improve the appearance of acne-prone skin. It utilizes a combination of powerful ingredients that work synergistically to provide significant benefits in acne treatment. It works by deeply exfoliating the ski, unclogging pores, reducing acne causing bacteria, calms inflammation and helps improve overall texture and tone of skin.
Post-treatment, there may be a mild peeling process that occurs, revealing fresher, clearer skin underneath. The skin may also experience temporary redness, sensitivity, and dryness, which can be managed with appropriate post-peel care as directed by the skincare professional.
Laser Genesis and IPL works by delivering light energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular renewal. It utilizes a wavelength that is absorbed by the hemoglobin within the blood vessels and the water within the skin’s cells. This absorption generates heat, which gently heats the skin and stimulates the body’s natural healing response. It helps reduce inflammation, kills acne causing bacteria, controls excessive oil production and minimizes post inflammatory hyperpigmentations.
During the treatment, you may experience a mild warming sensation on the skin. However, the procedure is generally comfortable and should not cause significant discomfort.
HydraFacial can be an effective treatment option for individuals with acne. By providing deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and targeted infusion of serums, HydraFacial helps to reduce acne breakouts, improve skin texture and tone, and promote overall skin health. It is advisable to consult with a skincare professional to determine the suitability of HydraFacial for your specific acne concerns and to receive personalized treatment recommendations.
The OxyGeneo Balance Charcoal facial treatment is a specialized skincare procedure designed to address acne-prone skin. It utilizes a unique combination of exfoliation, oxygenation, and infusion of key ingredients, including activated charcoal.This treatment generates carbon dioxide bubbles upon contact with the exfoliation gel. These bubbles gently burst on the skin’s surface, creating a mild oxygenation effect. This oxygenation process increases blood circulation, stimulates cell metabolism, and enhances the skin’s ability to absorb the infused ingredients. Infusing the skin with activated charcoal helps to absorb excess oil, detoxify the skin, and minimize the appearance of pores.It also has antibacterial properties, which can help inhibit the growth of P. acnes and reduce the risk of acne breakouts.
Depending on your goals and lifestyle, our treatment providers can provide personalized recommendations and guidance based on your unique needs. It’s also important to note that results are typically seen after a series of treatments, as consistency is key for optimal outcomes. The number of sessions recommended may vary depending on the severity of acne and individual skin response. Book your complimentary consultation at Skin Loft today.
