Acne Treatment Facial
Feel confident in your skin.
If you have acne prone skin and feel like you’ve tried it all with no effect, it might be time to treat yourself to an acne facial treatment. This is a customized facial designed to treat congestion and mild-to-moderate acne. It includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, a mask selected based on your skin condition and an oxygen infusion — everything you need for clear skin.
• Mild-to-moderate acne — blackheads, whiteheads, and active blemishes. While we can help with cystic acne, it is best to consult a dermatologist for severe acne.
• Great as an ongoing treatment along with acne products to help support your skin and keep it clear.
If you are currently using benzoyl peroxide or prescription medications like Accutane to treat your acne, this might NOT be the facial for you. However, you would love our Oxygen Facial.
Our Acne Treatment Facial starts in our Treatment Room where we’ll do a thorough consultation to make sure every element of your facial works for your skin. Your skin is unique and we treat it as such.
This facial is equal parts treatment and prevention. We reduce existing blemishes and extract blackheads, and we use products with actives like salicylic acid and light therapy to prevent new ones from forming. The best part, the process is painless.
To finish off, we treat your skin with a refreshing oxygen infusion that will help reduce inflammation and redness. We use a wand to deliver a stream of high-pressurized oxygen to the skin’s surface, the experience is reinvigorating and the results are jaw-dropping.
Your treatment includes the application of one of three face masks which we’ll help you choose based on your skin:

The Results – Clear, less congested skin
After your treatment, other than feeling super relaxed, you’ll also notice a bit of redness. This is completely normal and will go down in the next few hours.
The following days after your facial you’ll notice a more even skin tone, reduced redness and tighter pores. With regular facials, your skin will break out less and less.
The techniques and products we use for this treatment also have anti-aging benefits like attaining a smoother texture, tighter pores, a more even skin tone and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a win-win!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can a facial cause more acne?
Our Acne Treatment Facial is designed to treat and prevent acne, it will not cause more acne. However, there are certain facials (like microdermabrasion) that as a side effect, can spread acne bacteria and cause more acne.
This is why we always start any treatment with a consultation, so we can customize it to your needs and give you the best possible results.
The best part is that consultations are free so next time you’re at the Del Amo Fashion Center pop in for a quick skin assessment. Or book yours by calling in at 310-316-4000.
2. What types of facials are best for acne?
Our Acne Facial is specially designed to combat acne. However, since all of our facial treatments are customized around your needs, skin type and goals, most of the treatments you get at Elle Marie will help reduce blemishes and eliminate blackheads. We encourage you to get a complimentary consultation with your esthetician to find the best facial for your skin.
3. How do oxygen facials help with acne?
Oxygen Facials reduce inflammation and post-acne red or brown marks. Additionally, an Oxygen infusion has anti-bacterial properties that will help diminish existing blemishes.
4. How often would you recommend getting an acne facial?
We recommend getting a facial at our facial bar twice a month or a 60-minute Acne Facial once a month for best results.
5. Can I get an Acne facial if I’m undergoing an Accutane treatment?
No. Accutane can impact wound healing so we recommend avoiding Acne Facials while you are on the medication and for six months following the completion of your treatment. However, our Acne Facials can be beneficial to the skin before using Accutane. If you’re currently taking Accutane, you will love our Oxygen Facial.
