Going for an acne facial in Singapore is one of the best acne treatment options as it is non-invasive yet effective, and suitable for all ages. 

An acne facial typically entails extraction to deeply cleanse the skin of any impurities but there is so much more to it at the same time. 

Regardless of whether you are planning to book an appointment for an acne facial for the first time or have already tried it before, this article will cover what you can expect during the whole process so you get a clearer idea of what it takes to help you achieve brighter and clearer skin. 

Read on to find out more. 

1. Consultation

The first step of every acne facial should start off with a consultation since everyone’s skin condition is different. It is essential to make use of this time to let your esthetician understand your skin concerns and needs so that the treatment can be customised for you. Your esthetician may also make use of various machines or tools to perform a skin analysis. 

2. Double cleansing

Next, get changed, lie down and relax while the esthetician starts the acne facial with double cleansing. This step involves removing all traces of makeup and grime with an oil-based remover, followed by a cleanser to ensure your skin is a clean canvas to work on. Double cleansing is also skincare junkies’ secret to clearer skin – a good habit to incorporate into your skincare routine to prevent clogged pores. 

3. Steaming

Contrary to popular belief, steaming does not open up your pores but rather, softens the skin to allow easier and less painful extractions. Our pores are not muscles that open and close, instead, they may appear smaller or larger as dead skin cells, dirt and oil build up over time. Thus, steaming during an acne facial is done to prep your skin for extraction while introducing moisture so that products used during the process can be absorbed better into the skin.

4. Exfoliation

Before extraction, exfoliation will also be done to remove any dead skin cells, unclog pores and even out your skin tone. This is a vital step in improving the appearance of your skin, which is why it is recommended for you to exfoliate on your own at least twice a week too. 

5.  Extraction

Here comes the most important part of an acne facial – the extraction. This step involves manipulating the skin around any blackheads or pimples to extract gunk from the clogged pore so that it is able to heal. Some estheticians may use a metal extractor but we suggest going to one who uses just their fingers during the extraction to prevent wounding the skin and risk leaving behind any scars. It is only natural to feel some pain as well but if it gets unbearable, feel free to sound it out to your esthetician. 

6. Applying a mask

Your skin will be slightly inflamed after extraction and that is totally normal. However, your esthetician will apply a cooling and soothing mask to help to calm your skin while providing it with the much-needed hydration. 

7. Skincare

Lastly, your esthetician will apply some skincare products such as a moisturiser to lock in hydration and sunscreen to protect your vulnerable skin from the sun, especially after an acne facial
