A bad breakout often calls for some major skin rehab. But while we have tons of over-the-counter lotions, potions, and creams, they just aren’t enough sometimes. That’s when we call in the cavalry—A.K.A., a pro aesthetician.

TBH, nothing soothes a flare-up like a facial. If you make regular visits to your facialist, you know just how cathartic it can be. After a good session, you somehow feel lighter and cleaner—on the road to flawless, if you will. So, are you ready for some much-needed skin therapy? Below, find 3 acne-busting facials that will nurse your face back to health.

THE FACIAL: Acne Facial
THE CLINIC: Skinlux Aesthetic Center (San Juan)
Oily and acne-prone girls, have we got a special treat for you! This facial is basically your skincare routine on steroids. Following some gentle cleansing, toning, and moisturizing of the skin, you are treated to an exclusive anti-acne procedure.
First, there’s a face oil massage that softens stubborn blackheads and whiteheads and gets them ready for extraction. Then, to remove any acne-causing bacteria, a purifying mask and gel cream are applied to the skin to speed up the healing process. Not only does this procedure treat active acne, but it also prevents future pimples from sprouting back. A win-win for us!

THE FACIAL: AHA Fruitpeel Facial + Photo Dynamic Therapy
THE CLINIC: Finessa Aesthetica (Timog, Katipunan, and Parañaque)
When you experience a series of bad breakouts, you’ll often suffer at the hands of two villains: clogged pores and acne scars. Break out of this cycle with this active-laced exfoliating facial.
Using fruit acid as its main star, this treatment rids the skin of dead surface cells and removes debris from clogged pores. NeoStrata Glycolic Solution is used to prep blackheads and whiteheads for pricking. Then, a high-frequency facial device is used to re-tighten the pores. Finally, Finessa’s Photo Dynamic Therapy is employed to diminish acne (as well as other skin conditions). After this high-tech facial, you are guaranteed to be less pimply.

THE FACIAL: Signature Facial with Diamond Peel
THE CLINIC: Skin & Body by Medicard (Makati, Alabang, and Quezon City)
In need of a more personalized facial? This one is customized to your unique skin needs on the spot! It starts off with a assessment by a certified skin consultant, who modifies the treatment to suit you.
After, the 60-90 minute facial employs the procedures of a facial and diamond peel. This means brighter and healthier skin in no time! As an added bonus, you even get to bring home a skincare regimen set recommended for you by the facialist. The Tea Tree Set is perfect for acne-ridden skin since it helps with Oil Control (FYI, it includes a sunscreen, moisturizing cream, soap, and toner). What a steal!
