Treating Acne with Facials: Expert Tips & Treatment Options

Visit one of our Columbus, Ohio locations to get started today!


Understanding Acne


Acne can be your skin’s worst nightmare. The common skin condition develops when your pores are clogged up with dead skin cells, impurities, and sebum, the oil that keeps your skin from drying out. Bacteria grow in the congested follicles, causing painful inflammation, infection, and acne outbreaks that can lead to scarring.


Acne outbreaks usually develop on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders. People of all ages and skin tones can suffer from acne, but it is more common in teens and young adults.


Acne Treatments Designed for You


Our acne facials are effective for mild to moderate acne. If you’re under the care of a dermatologist, you’ll need to get clearance before you schedule an appointment for a facial treatment. It’s also important to let us know about any acne products or medications you’re taking.


Our experienced estheticians at Boss Gal Beauty Bar don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. They carefully evaluate your unique needs and customize your treatments to address specific concerns. We use medical-grade products from ZO Skin Health to get you on the path to your best skin ever!


Before starting your facial, we will discuss your home skin care routine. Even though acne facials can help restore your clear, acne-free skin, you’ll need daily maintenance. Our expert providers will recommend acne products and daily practices to keep your skin clear and healthy.


Boss Gal Beauty Bar’s Clarifying Acne Facial


Each acne facial is an exclusive experience designed with you in mind. In general, the following is what you can expect:


Deep Cleanse: We will start your acne facial by cleaning your skin to remove any traces of oil, makeup, and impurities.


Steam Treatment: Your acne facial may include a steam treatment to help soften your pores and make it easier to extract impurities, blackheads, or whiteheads. Steam also enhances circulation, leaving your skin looking healthier and brighter.


Exfoliation: Exfoliating the top layer of skin is an essential step in your acne facial – or any facial. This step helps remove dead skin cells and debris clogging your pores, leaving your skin softer and smoother than ever. We may recommend a scrub or a superficial chemical peel, depending on your unique needs.


Extraction: This step involves using gentle pressure to remove whiteheads, blackheads, and impurities unclogging your pores. Extractions may not be the most comfortable part of your acne facial, but they offer numerous benefits, helping control acne and lowering the chances of future outbreaks.


Acne Mask: We apply a clay mask designed for acne-prone skin to absorb excess oil or a sulfur mask to help clear your acne. If your skin is red and inflamed, we may recommend a soothing mask.


Toner or Astringent: A toner or astringent will remove excess oil and mask residue and help minimize pore size. Our esthetician will select the ideal product to address your skin’s unique needs.


Finishing Treatment: We will infuse your skin with luxurious, hydrating products for acne-prone skin. We will also apply sunscreen to protect your newly treated skin.


Specialty Facials – Taking Your Acne Treatments to the Next Level


We’re pleased to offer a range of specialty facial treatments to clear acne and prevent future outbreaks. Here’s a look at our deluxe facials:


ZO Accelerated Calming Facial: We start with dermaplaning to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair – aka peach fuzz, followed by our ZO Enzymatic Peel. A jelly mask will reduce redness and restore balance to your skin. Next is an application of our ZO-boosted concentrate and enjoying a hand and arm massage as you relax under our Celluma LED light. We will provide you with a two-week supply of concentrated ZO Rozatrol Serum for use at home.


Deluxe HydraFacial: We’re pleased to offer HydraFacial, the medical-grade skin resurfacing and rejuvenation procedure celebrities love. A deep cleanse, gentle exfoliation, and extraction, followed by an infusion with peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, will leave your skin looking and feeling better than ever. HydraFacial treatments are fully customizable, providing acne-prone skin with a gentle solution to combat acne and prevent future outbreaks. As a HydraFacial Black Diamond provider, you can count on our expert providers for an exclusive experience!
