want clear skin?

Our Acne Clearing Facial includes the following heavy hitters:  Galvanic, Hydrapurge, Blue LED, and Extractions using Ultrasonic and/or a extraction tool.  Also included is an optional light peel depending on your skin's needs. 

Step 1: Before your facial begins, your skincare professional will conduct a thorough consultation to understand your skin concerns, medical history, and skincare goals. They will also perform a detailed skin analysis to assess the type and severity of your acne, as well as any other underlying skin issues.

Step 2: Cleansing and Preparation

Your skin will be gently cleansed using a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser to remove any makeup, dirt, and oil from the surface. This step helps prepare the skin for the subsequent treatments and ensures optimal product penetration.

Step 3: Galvanic Treatment

The galvanic facial treatment begins with the application of a conductive gel or serum containing acne-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. The galvanic machine is then used to deliver low-level electrical currents to the skin, helping to deep cleanse pores, reduce inflammation, and kill acne-causing bacteria. Positive polarity may be utilized to draw out impurities and toxins from the skin, while negative polarity can enhance the penetration of beneficial ingredients.

Step 4: Hydrapurge Treatment

Next, your skin will undergo a Hydrapurge treatment, which consists of several steps to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. The Hydrapurge  device will be used to perform gentle suction and infusion of specialized serums tailored to address acne and congestion primarily in the T-zone area. The exfoliation step helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, while the extraction process effectively removes debris and impurities from the skin's surface.

Step 5: Extractions

Ultrasonic for clogged pores which uses 28,000 vibrations per second to dislodge impurities in the pores to help prepare for manual extractions.  If necessary, manual extractions will be performed to remove any remaining blackheads, whiteheads, or clogged pores. Your skincare professional will use sterile tools and gentle techniques to extract impurities without causing damage or irritation to the skin.  We also will use High Frequency to help disinfect your skin as needed.

6. Blue LED Light Therapy

Following your extractions and optional light peel, your skin will receive targeted blue LED light therapy. Blue LED light has powerful antibacterial properties and is particularly effective in targeting the P. acnes bacteria responsible for acne breakouts. The blue LED light helps to kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, and promote healing, resulting in clearer and healthier-looking skin.

Step 7: Soothing and Hydration

To soothe and hydrate the skin after the treatment, a calming mask or serum may be applied. This step helps to reduce redness and irritation while providing essential nutrients and moisture to the skin.

Step 8: Sunscreen and Aftercare

Finally, a broad-spectrum sunscreen will be applied to protect your skin from UV damage and prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Your skincare professional will provide personalized recommendations for at-home skincare products and maintenance treatments to help you maintain the results of your acne facial.

Your acne treatment facial incorporating galvanic, Hydrapurge (similar to Hydrafacial ) LED light therapy, and extractions  plus an optional light peel offers a comprehensive approach to treating acne and improving the overall health and appearance of your skin. By combining these advanced skincare technologies and techniques, you can expect clearer, smoother, and more radiant skin with reduced acne breakouts and inflammation.  This is our only facial that does not include a relaxing massage. This is so that we have more time to treat your acne.

We care about treating acne in Boston and want to see the best possible outcome for your skin. While we have engineered this facial to provide the best possible acne treatment, treating acne is not a one time event - there is not a magic cure for acne. This can be a marathon but with the right diet, avoiding acne triggers, acne fighting skincare products, and monthly facials we can help you to get clear.  As you are researching acne treatment, please do your research on the steps we've described and as you're evaluating other acne treatments in Boston, ask what they include in their facial. We hope to see you soon and start the journey to get clear together.
