5 Types of Facials For Acne

Whether supplementing your skincare regimen or simply treating a pesky breakout, facials for acne can be immensely helpful in the journey to clear skin. At Skin Spa New York, we offer a number of facials that specifically target acne-prone skin. Keep reading as we break down the options to help you figure out which facials for acne are the best fit for you!

Power Peel

When it comes to facials for acne, our number one treatment has to be Power Peels. This exfoliating treatment is ideal for acne-prone and oily skin, revealing a fresh, refined look without any need for physical abrasion or downtime. Our Power Peels include a choice of Beta-Salicylic, Lactic, or Glycolic Acids and work by loosening the top layer of dermis and promoting cell renewal. 

The result is a reduction in fine lines, minimization of pores, evened out skin tone, and even the ability to prevent your pores from clogging up! Power Peels can also reduce the appearance of acne scars or pock marks, as well as reducing acne lesions and inflammation if you have active acne at the time of treatment.

Laser Genesis Facial

Ready to level up with facials for acne? Our Laser Genesis Facial is just the treatment for you. Both a preventative and corrective treatment, this facial jump-starts the production of collagen in order to diminish acne, redness, acne scars, and pock marks, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. To combat acne, this 1064 NdYag laser also kills acne-causing bacteria in the skin. This targets active acne as well as helping to prevent future breakouts.

Those who are specifically targeting acne should see fewer acne lesions on the skin after a series of Laser Genesis treatments. For most people, a full series can range from 6-10 treatments, but take note: the effects are cumulative, so the results are improved each time. But you’ll notice improvements right after the first treatment; most people have noticeably diminished acne scarring and reduced pore size. 

As you undergo the full series, keep in mind that your skin’s elasticity and collagen improve over time, so Laser Genesis Facials also help maintain a youthful appearance no matter one’s age!

Laser Genesis +

We can’t get enough of lasers when it comes to facials for acne! The Laser Genesis + is a double dose of our classic Laser Genesis Facial, using an advanced laser science that kick-starts collagen production with 12,000 pulses. Diminish redness and boost collagen for an overall effect that not only plumps and rejuvenates the skin, but also ensures fewer acne lesions on the skin and a diminished appearance in acne scarring and skin damage.

Oxygenesis Reveal

For an ultra-thorough medi-spa treatment that combines a few of our offerings while specifically targeting active acne, we recommend the Oxygenesis Reveal. This intensive treatment will rehydrate your skin and slough off up to 21 days of skin cells – almost a whole month, wiped by lasers and oxygen! 

Focusing on instant hydration and exfoliation, this treatment is composed of three parts: dermaplaning, an exfoliating procedure that allows laser therapies to better penetrate the skin; the Laser Genesis Facial, which we’ve detailed above; and the OxyTrio Oxygen Facial, which taps into the stimulating power of oxygen to hydrate parched skin while minimizing lines, wrinkles, and scars. 


Last but not least, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention microdermabrasion, with one important caveat: this treatment is not recommended for active acne on the skin. Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment for acne scarring. If you’re looking for facials for acne that specifically target scars, this is the option for you!

Essentially professional-grade skin exfoliation, the microdermabrasion process works by gently removing the dry, dead skin cells of your skin’s outermost layer to reveal the newer, younger skin cells underneath. This treatment is popular for its skin-rejuvenating properties, which also includes retexturizing fine lines, eliminating whiteheads and blackheads, and diminishing pore size. 

With the plethora of acne-defeating treatments available these days, bring in an element of luxury by indulging in facials for acne. From the polishing effects of microdermabrasion to more targeted treatments like those in the Laser Genesis family, you’re sure to find the ideal facial for your acne-related needs at Skin Ska New York!
