Facials for Covid-19 Face Mask Acne
Constantly wearing face masks has resulted in unsightly acne eruptions for many people with acne prone skin – as well as for people who have never experienced acne breakouts before. A new term for face mask induced has even sprung up: “maskne”!
Fortunately, Advanced Laser Spa in the Sterling Heights area offers several skin care treatments and products – including a wide variety of custom Facials – that can sooth skin, reduce inflammation, and get rid of ugly, embarrassing acne.
What Causes Face Mask Acne?
The constant rubbing and pressure that comes from wearing a face mask can trap dirt, debris, oil (sebum), dead skin cells and even germs from recycled breathing in the pores. As a result, bacteria begins to grow in the pores and skin becomes inflamed – causing pimples, blackheads and enlarged pores.
This problem is usually worse on the bridge of the nose and cheeks where the facemasks rubs and presses against the face.
And, to make matters worse, during any time of stress (like the COVID-19 pandemic) the body increases production of the stress hormone “cortisol” – which stimulates increased production of pore-clogging oil (sebum).
Treating Face Mask Acne
Custom Facials are the ideal skin care treatment to unclog pores, soothe irritated and inflamed skin, and eliminate unsightly acne breakouts!
Facials work in three ways to clear and resurface skin – leaving it smooth, glowing and unblemished. First, the Facial exfoliates the outer layer of the skin (epidermis), removing dead skin cells, dirt and debris. Next, sebum, dead cells, bacteria and other “gunk” clogging the pores is extracted during the Facial. And finally, custom medical and botanical formulas are applied that calm inflammation, reduce visible redness, and kill acne-causing bacteria.
At Advanced Laser Spa in the Sterling heights area, we offer state-of-the-art acne customized Facials for teen and adult acne, as well as other skin care issues and concerns.
Salicylic Acid Facials for Acne and “Maskne”
Facials that employ gentle salicylic and azelaic acid-based products are typically the most effective for treating acne, no matter what the cause.
While other products like alpha hydroxy acid only exfoliate the skin, salicylic acid actually has the ability to penetrate the pores and unclog them by dissolving the intercellular matter that holds skin cells together. And, in addition to deep cleaning pores, salicylic acid also lowers sebum (oil) secretion, which helps reduce acne breakouts in the future.
