ACNE: the worst four letter word


Prom and graduation can be the most important events in a youth’s high school experience.

However, for teens marred by acne or experiencing a less than perfect complexion, these events can seem like another reason to worry and feel stressed out!

A couple of bumps on the face can truly be a teenager’s worst nightmare in the image conscious world of high school.  It is estimated that about 90% of teens develop acne.

No More Breakouts!
Washing your face is one of the most important things you can do to prevent acne. Routine cleansing removes dead skin cells, excess oil and surface dirt; but did you know too much cleansing or washing too vigorously can lead to dryness and irritation – which can actually make acne worse?
Those with acne may find regular facials help reduce breakouts.

Hand & Stone’s Teen Facial is designed for those with mild breakouts to those whose skin is prone to blackheads, blemishes and acne-scarring. Our acne-controlling facial improves and refines unbalanced skin complexion and prevents and controls future break-outs resulting in clearer, smoother skin.

During a facial treatment, a Hand & Stone certified Esthetician performs extractions by manually removing pore blockages by extracting these impactions, the pores are cleared of excess oil and cellular debris. Blemishes are less likely to form, improving some cases of non-inflammatory acne.

If you decide to make facials a part of your skin care routine, remember you will get the best results if they are done regularly.
