Exfoliation Benefits for Acne-Prone Skin


At Massage Heights, one of the most common skin conditions we see is acne – and it does not discriminate. Whether you’re a preteen, teenager or adult, an estimated 80% of the American population has acne at any given time – that’s a lot of people. And while it’s good to know if you’re experiencing acne, you’re definitely not alone; for many people, it’s not only uncomfortable, but embarrassing, too.

For many Guests during their initial visit, they are a bit reluctant about our Skin Therapy exfoliation treatments. Some are concerned the exfoliation process may be too harsh on their affected skin. This is a misnomer. Exfoliation – when properly developed and applied by one of our professional and licensed Skin Therapists – can do wonders for acne.

Acne Exfoliation Benefits

  • New Skin Means Fresh Skin: Exfoliating your face gently removes dead skin that can cause acne, making room for fresh, smooth and rejuvenated skin.
  • Less Pimples And Blackheads: Professional exfoliation and facials remove dead skin cells that can trap oil, residue, dirt and bacteria in your pores, resulting in less pimples and blackheads.
  • Softer, Smoother Face: Regular exfoliation by a licensed Skin Therapist will give your skin a younger-looking appearance – bonus! Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, allowing new skin to appear, minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Minimize Acne Scarring: A common side effect of acne is acne scars. A common (but good) side effect of regular exfoliation is a reduction in acne scars. During the exfoliation process, your Massage Heights Skin Therapist applies a special treatment based on your skin type, removing the top layers. Done on a regular basis, exfoliation will reduce your scars and marks, making room for clearer skin.
