Manhattan Beach Studio: $100
Description - Most teenagers will experience clogged pores and acne breakouts at some point during their teen years. It’s important to teach them how to properly care for their skin while also giving them the tools to maintain the process at home. My Teen Treatment will help to clear the skin and prevent future acne scarring through expert extractions and blue LED light therapy finishing with a calming customized mask. My facials for teens are designed to specifically address breakouts frequently associated with adolescent skin and is done using my gentle extraction option. *A parent or guardian must be home during my entire visit.
What to expect during your teens treatment:
Two-Step Deep Cleanse - Using a calming sulfate free cleanser with light stroking movements and little pressure to not over stimulate the skin your teen will receive a thorough deep cleansing. I then analyze the skin to access their skin type and any current problems that they might be experiencing. We will discuss extractions and the level of pressure they are comfortable with.
Steam & Enzyme Mask: I begin the exfoliation process by applying an enzyme mask. These enzymes work by specifically breaking down the dirt, oil and sebum in the pores providing a safer way to exfoliate.
Extractions - I offer a gentle extraction option. While not as effective as deep extractions, it's much better than doing nothing to remove any build up in their pores that contribute to acne breakouts
Blue Light LED Therapy: A non invasive treatment for acne that blue will kill bacteria, calm stimulated skin and promote healing. LED light therapy is a non invasive anti-aging approach that works by emitting energy-producing packets of light deep into the skin’s layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production and destroy acne-causing bacteria.
Healing Mask - As a final step I apply a healing mask that will help to calm and hydrate the skin
