Current world events have led to the coining of a new term in the world of skincare. Maskne is a word that refers to acne breakouts caused by wearing face masks. Friction caused by a mask being in constant contact with the skin often leads to skin irritation and clogged pores. This is a recipe for disaster for your skin. You may not be able to avoid the masks, but you can avoid the breakouts with some simple treatments at the spa.
Facials- One fantastic way to prevent or reverse the problem of maskne is with regular spa facials. Extractions are included with all of our facials to clear those clogged pores and clear up blemishes. With some expert-level TLC we can head off problems before they start as well as help clear up any issues that have already cropped up.
Phototherapy- Phototherapy involves the application of light energy for therapeutic benefits to the tissues. In the case of acne, Celluma blue light can be especially helpful. The treatment kills acne-causing bacteria and stimulates cell growth and regeneration to promote healing. Results are greater clarity and improved skin tone and texture.
Microneedling- This treatment uses an electronic device fitted with very fine needles that penetrate just beneath the surface of the skin creating micro-wounds. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response to regenerate skin cells. It breaks down scar tissue, minimizes large pores, decreases hyperpigmentation, and improves the appearance of moderate acne.
