Facial Treatments for Acne

Acne Treatments


With more than 50 million Americans affected, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. The misconception that acne is primarily a problem for teens and that they’re the only patients in need of acne treatment disregards the millions of adults who have fought acne for decades. Caused primarily by diet, stress, and hormones, acne can affect teens, young adults, and men and women of all ages.

Even when acne is mild, this medical condition can result in physical scarring, anxiety, and emotional distress. Our medical aestheticians can use the latest procedures and product technology to custom-treat your acne issues. We avoid the cookie cutter approach, as success depends on your age, skin type, breakout diagnosis, and even acne type. Proper care of the skin and use of the right skincare products can make a significant difference in controlling acne.

Back Facial

Getting pampered usually means treating yourself to something you wouldn’t normally do. It can also mean treating yourself to something you simply can’t do. The back facial is the best of both: a luxurious, exfoliating treatment for your hard-to-reach backside. Back facials are particularly famed for combating the dreaded “backne.” Even if you don’t suffer from the condition, a back facial will leave your skin smooth and ready for even the deepest of plunging backline dresses. This back treatment begins with a cleansing and exfoliation of the area, followed by extractions of the impurities beneath the skin’s surface, and a mask is applied. Finally, the back is moisturized to restore nutrients and hydration. This back facial also includes a neck, shoulder, and back massage to compliment this restorative treatment.

  • Purpose: Acne, General Skin Health
