A Step-By-Step Breakdown of the Deep Cleanse Treatment
An acne deep cleanse facial is a specialized treatment that is designed to unclog the pores of the skin to treat and prevent acne breakouts.
Step 1 - Consultation
The facial typically begins with a consultation to assess the client's skin type, concerns, and goals.
Step 2 - Cleansing
The second step of the facial is usually a thorough cleansing of the skin, using a gentle yet effective cleanser. This helps to remove any surface-level impurities and prepares the skin for deeper cleaning.
Step 3 - Exfoliation
The next step involves the application of a specialized exfoliating treatment, which can vary depending on the client's skin type and needs. This treatment may include the use of a gentle scrub or a chemical exfoliant, such as a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) or an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This step helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
Step 4 - Extraction
After the exfoliation, the aesthetician will perform thorough extractions to remove any blackheads or whiteheads that may be present. This can uncomfortable for some people, but it is essential for deeply cleaning the pores and
preventing future breakouts.
Step 5 - Purifying Mask
Once the extractions are complete, the aesthetician will typically apply a purifying mask to the skin. This mask may contain ingredients such as charcoal or clay, which help to absorb excess oil and impurities from the skin.
Step 6 - Moisturizer
Finally, the facial is finished with the application of a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to hydrate and protect the skin. The aesthetician may also recommend products or a skincare routine to maintain the results of the facial and prevent future breakouts. Sunscreen may also be applied.
Overall, an acne deep cleanse facial is an effective treatment for those who struggle with acne or clogged pores. It helps to deeply clean and purify the skin, unclog pores, and prevent future breakouts, leaving the skin looking clearer, smoother, and more radiant. While these general steps are a brief overview of a deep cleanse acne treatment, your service will always be customized to your individual needs after your consultation with your aesthetician. It may include these or other treatments to achieve your desired result.
