Acne (acne vulgaris) is one of the commonest inflammatory skin conditions, mainly affecting adolescents age 14-19, says a report by ResearchGate. The condition is marked by pimples, excess oil production, and sometimes even cystic breakouts in the skin. Therefore, it must be treated right in the beginning. A non-invasive acne facial at Staten Island in Brooklyn, New York can effectively and safely reduce the signs of the condition or treat it.
What is an Acne Facial Treatment?
It is a targeted skincare facial therapy that addresses the symptoms of acne, repairs the skin and boosts its health using high-tech tools and products. Skincare experts at Staten Island Glam Glow Esthetics recommend avoiding any professional exfoliation procedures or invasive treatments 2 weeks before your facial. Discontinue any at-home exfoliation remedies a few days before your appointment. After treatment, your skin will become more sensitive to the sun. So, sun protection will be applied right away. Reapplication is needed during aftercare.
Keep using gentle, soothing and hydrating products as recommended by your esthetician. Wait for your skin to heal before resuming exfoliation.
What Conditions Can the Facial Treat or Improve?
- Congested pores
- Affected pore size and skin texture
- Oily skin

According to a study by the National Institute of Health, the effectiveness and safety of acne facials depend on the following factors:
