Oily, Combination, & Acneic Skin


A. OILY SKIN: Thick, oily, blemish prone skin with large pores, dull complexion & tone.

علاج-البشرة-الدهنية-730x370.jpgFacial treatments:  Use products specific to “normal to oily” skin. Regular Deep Pore Facials,  High Frequency Facials, and at home care is essential.

  1. Gel based or foaming cleanser
  2. Astringent
  3. Light moisturizer.

Cleansing is important being cautious not to over wash or exfoliate to the point of dehydration as this will force the skin to produce more oil, in order to compensate for the dryness.  

NOTE: Changes in environment may affect the development of lesions including breakouts as the skin adjusts to different humidity levels.

B. COMBINATION SKIN (aka t-zone): Breakouts are common in the t-zone combined with both dryness and congestion (black/whiteheads), and fine lines & wrinkles around eyes and cheeks.


Facial treatments: Balance skin by using product specific to balance combination skin otherwise you will need to use products for oily skin in the T-zone and products for dry skin in the cheek, keeping in mind not to over moisturize in the T-zone. Microdermabrasion,   Chemical Peels, Medical facials  and High Frequency Facials will keep skin clear and blemishes minimal.

C. CONGESTED SKIN: Thick uneven skin texture and tone with clogged pores. One of the biggest causes is the skin cell turnover rate,  compounded by dead skin cells inability to  slough off because of oil production & use of heavy moisturizers leading to acneic skin.


Facial treatments:  Weekly exfoliation with Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion,  High-Frequency.  Also Purifying Facials would benefit tremendously. Products should consist of:

  1. Normal to oily AHA based cleanser
  2. Normal to oily AHA based toner
  3. light water based mattifying moisturizer or hydrating gel

D. ACNE SKIN: Uneven texture, clogged pores and inflamed breakouts, oily, scarred & usually quite sensitive. It affects the face, shoulders & back. Causes of acne are usually due to hormones, work cleansing habits, over cleansing and exfoliating, food allergies, and environmental change. Acne is commonly seen in puberty but also affects adults. Half of all adult women experience some form of acne due to hormonal influx.




Facial treatments: Exfoliate with Chemical Peels (enzyme or aha) to help stimulate new cell production. Scrubs, brushes, facial massage or microderm are too irritating on active acne & will stimulate oil production and spread bacteria. Galvanetic, High-Frequency Facials and Purifying Facials kill bacteria and speed healing. Products should consist of:

  1. bentonite clay, french green mud, or soothing masks
  2. Foam or gel cleanser
  3. light water based mattifying moisturizer or hydrating gel


NOTE: Cystic acne must be treated by dermatologist or a physician with an orally prescribed medication.

E. ACNE SCARRED SKINAcne scarring indicates a history of acne. Clients may have more than one type of scarring which include the following: hypertrophic, keloidal, and Atrophic. There are 4 grades of acne scars: icepick, pitted, rolling, and raised.


Microneedling therapy or collagen induction therapy is a new addition to the treatment of scars and has been reported to be simple and effective in atrophic acne scar treatment.

  • Similar to other facial treatments Microneedling Therapy helps clean the epidermis and  clients may notice a few breakouts afterwards lasting about a few days, completely clearing within a week.
  • Microneedling Therapy   also helps to penetrate topicals, it makes them about 100 times more effective because they’re getting deeper into skin through the micro wounds in skin. Skin tends to peel and feel dry afterward. Use of a good enzyme mask and moisturizer post treatment helps aid in healing.
