Why and How the Bespoke Acne Facial Works for Acne
Acne is a complex skin concern that can arise from a multitude of factors, including excess oil production, inflammation, and bacteria. The Bespoke Acne Facial is meticulously designed to target these underlying causes. Here’s how:
Deep Exfoliation with the Deluxe Hydrafacial:
Why it Works: Acne often results from clogged pores due to dead skin cells and excessive sebum (oil) production.
How it Works: The deluxe hydrafacial provides aggressive exfoliation, removing the top layer of dead skin cells, dirt, and oils, thus helping to unclog pores and reduce breakouts.
Clarifying Acne Booster:
Why it Works: Targeted treatment can calm active breakouts and prevent future ones.
How it Works: This booster aids in reducing inflammation, controlling oil production, and targeting acne-causing agents, making the environment less conducive for breakouts.
Blue LED Light Therapy:
Why it Works: Specific wavelengths of light can target and destroy acne-causing bacteria.
How it Works: Blue LED light penetrates the skin to a depth where it can kill Propionibacterium acnes, the primary bacteria responsible for acne.
Laser Genesis Treatment:
Why it Works: Inflamed skin and excessive oil production can exacerbate acne.
How it Works: The Laser Genesis treatment reduces skin redness, shrinks enlarged pores, and normalizes oil production, thus creating an environment where acne is less likely to thrive.
The Evidence Behind the Treatments:
Clinical Studies: Many of the treatments encompassed within the Bespoke Acne Facial, like LED light therapy and hydrafacials, have been supported by clinical studies indicating their efficacy against acne and other skin concerns.
Professional Endorsements: These treatments are widely endorsed and used by dermatologists and skincare professionals worldwide, lending credibility to their effectiveness.
Client Testimonials: At Skin Cosmetics London, we’ve witnessed the transformative power of the Bespoke Acne Facial firsthand. Our numerous satisfied clients and their visible results stand as a testament to its effectiveness.
Will It Work For Me?
While individual results can vary, the Bespoke Acne Facial has been designed to address the root causes of acne and improve overall skin health. If you’re dealing with persistent acne, enlarged pores, or an uneven skin tone, this treatment offers a multifaceted approach that can be beneficial.
It’s essential to have a consultation with our skincare specialists at Skin Cosmetics London. During the consultation, our team can provide a comprehensive skin analysis, ensuring the Bespoke Acne Facial is the right fit for you and making any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan to cater to your unique skin needs.
Treatment Step by Step
Consultation and Skin Analysis
Before the treatment starts, our skincare specialists will conduct a comprehensive analysis of your skin. This step ensures that the treatment is tailored to your specific skin needs and concerns.
Your skin will be gently cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities. This provides a clean canvas for the treatments that follow.
Using a specialized tip for aggressive exfoliation, the hydrafacial device will glide over your skin. This process will remove the top layer of dead skin cells, dirt, and oils, helping unclog pores and reduce the likelihood of breakouts.
Application of Clarifying Acne Booster
After the hydrafacial, the clarifying acne booster is applied. This specialized serum is designed to target acne at its core, reducing inflammation, controlling oil production, and providing a balanced complexion.
Blue LED Light Therapy
With protective eyewear in place, the blue LED light will be directed onto your skin. This specific wavelength targets and kills Propionibacterium acnes, the primary bacteria responsible for acne. The therapy not only combats existing acne but also prevents future breakouts.
Laser Genesis Treatment
The Laser Genesis device will be maneuvered over your skin. This treatment stimulates collagen growth, reduces redness, and helps in normalizing oil production. The sensation is often described as a warm, gentle pulse against the skin.
Brightening Mask Application
A soothing brightening mask is then applied to your skin. This mask is designed to revitalize and illuminate the skin, providing a radiant and youthful glow. You’ll relax with this mask on for a specified duration, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate and work their magic.
Final Moisturizing and Sunscreen Application
Once all treatments are complete, a lightweight moisturizer suitable for acne-prone skin will be applied. If your treatment is during the day, a broad-spectrum sunscreen will also be applied to protect your skin from UV damage.
Before you leave Skin Cosmetics London, our skincare specialists will provide you with aftercare instructions to maximize the benefits of your Bespoke Acne Facial and ensure long-lasting results.
CLEAR YOUR DOUBTS
Frequently Asked Questions
What causes acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that results from a combination of factors. The main causes of acne include:
Overproduction of Oil (Sebum):
Sebaceous glands in the skin produce an oily substance called sebum. When these glands produce too much sebum, it can lead to clogged pores, forming the foundation for acne lesions.
Clogged Hair Follicles:
The skin’s surface is covered by hair follicles. When dead skin cells and sebum accumulate in these follicles, it can lead to blockages. These blockages can manifest as whiteheads or blackheads.
Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is a type of bacteria that naturally resides on the skin. In environments where there’s excess sebum and dead skin cells, such as clogged pores, these bacteria can proliferate, leading to inflammation and the formation of red, pus-filled spots.
The body’s immune response to the overgrowth of bacteria in clogged pores can result in inflammation. This presents as redness, swelling, and sometimes pain or tenderness in the affected area.
Hormonal fluctuations, especially those related to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and certain medications like oral contraceptives or corticosteroids, can stimulate sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can also result in hormonal changes leading to acne.
While research is ongoing, some studies suggest that certain diets may be linked to acne. High glycemic index foods, dairy products, and diets rich in refined sugars might be associated with an increased risk of developing acne.
Some medications, including certain antiepileptic drugs, corticosteroids, and lithium, among others, can have acne as a side effect.
While stress doesn’t directly cause acne, it can exacerbate the condition. Stress causes the body to produce more cortisol, a hormone that can lead to increased sebum production.
If your parents or siblings had acne, you might have a higher predisposition to developing it as well.
External factors, including the use of oily cosmetics, working in humid conditions, friction from tight clothing, or the use of certain hair products, can contribute to acne.
It’s essential to remember that acne is a complex condition, and its presence doesn’t indicate poor hygiene. It’s influenced by a myriad of factors, many of which are internal and not easily controlled by routine skin cleansing. If you’re struggling with acne, seeking advice from a dermatologist or skincare professional can provide insights into its root causes and appropriate treatment options.
Is this treatment safe for all skin types?
The Bespoke Acne Facial at Skin Cosmetics London combines multiple advanced treatments. Generally, these individual treatments are designed to be safe for a wide range of skin types. However, the safety and effectiveness can vary based on individual characteristics. Here’s a more detailed breakdown:
Deluxe Hydrafacial: This treatment is typically safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The intensity of exfoliation can be adjusted based on the patient’s skin type and sensitivity.
Clarifying Acne Booster: The ingredients in the booster are usually designed to target acne without causing harm to the skin. However, it’s crucial to ensure that the patient doesn’t have allergies or sensitivities to any of the components.
Blue LED Light Therapy: This therapy is non-invasive and is generally considered safe for all skin types. Blue LED light targets acne-causing bacteria without harming the surrounding skin.
Laser Genesis Treatment: While Laser Genesis is considered safe for most skin types, there can be variations in how different skin tones respond to laser treatments. It’s essential to adjust settings based on the individual’s skin type, especially for those with darker skin tones, to avoid potential side effects like hyperpigmentation.
Brightening Mask: The ingredients in the mask should be compatible with all skin types, but as with any skincare product, it’s essential to check for allergies or sensitivities.
Things to Consider:
Skin Sensitivity: If someone has highly sensitive skin or a known skin condition, like rosacea or eczema, it’s crucial to communicate this to the skincare specialist during the consultation. Some treatments might require adjustments or might not be recommended.
Skin Tone: As mentioned, laser treatments may need adjustments for darker skin tones to prevent unwanted side effects.
Allergies: Ensure you disclose any known allergies before treatment, as some products or boosters may contain potential allergens.
Recent Sun Exposure: If a patient has recently had significant sun exposure or has a sunburn, it might be recommended to postpone certain treatments, especially laser ones, to avoid potential complications.
While the Bespoke Acne Facial is designed to be versatile and adaptable for various skin types, it’s essential to have a thorough consultation. During this session, Skin Cosmetics London’s skilled aestheticians will evaluate your skin and ensure that the treatment is tailored to provide optimal results safely.
Always prioritize open communication about any skin concerns, sensitivities, or medical history to ensure the best and safest skincare experience.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of Bespoke Acne Facial sessions required at Skin Cosmetics London largely depends on individual skin conditions, the severity of acne, desired outcomes, and how one’s skin responds to the treatment. However, I can provide a general guideline based on the components of this particular treatment:
For individuals with active acne or severe skin concerns, monthly sessions might be recommended initially to see significant improvements.
Those seeking regular skin maintenance might opt for a session every 2-3 months.
Clarifying Acne Booster:
This is often incorporated into the hydrafacial session, so the frequency would align with the hydrafacial recommendations.
Blue LED Light Therapy:
For active acne, a series of sessions, often weekly or bi-weekly, might be recommended initially, tapering off as the skin improves.
Laser Genesis Treatment:
Depending on the skin concerns being addressed, most patients typically require 4-6 sessions spaced about 3-4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Maintenance sessions might be done semi-annually or annually.
Initial Phase: If you’re looking to address specific concerns like active acne, scarring, or severe uneven skin tone, a more intensive initial phase might be recommended. This could involve more frequent treatments over a few months to kickstart the skin transformation process.
Maintenance Phase: Once the desired results are achieved, you can transition into a maintenance phase. This phase requires less frequent treatments to maintain the skin’s improved condition and radiance.
Individual Variability: Everyone’s skin is unique. Factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle, and underlying skin conditions can influence how quickly one sees results and how many sessions are necessary.
Combination Treatments: Since the Bespoke Acne Facial is a combination treatment, its components work synergistically. This means you might see accelerated results compared to undergoing individual treatments, potentially reducing the number of sessions required.
During your consultation at Skin Cosmetics London, our skincare specialists will provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and desired outcomes. They will give you a clearer indication of how many sessions you might require to achieve and maintain radiant, clear skin.

Can I 'cure' acne?
The term “cure” implies a complete and permanent resolution of a condition. When it comes to acne, it’s more accurate to talk in terms of “managing” or “controlling” the condition. For many individuals, acne can be effectively managed to the point where breakouts are minimal or non-existent. However, factors like genetics, hormonal changes, and other triggers can cause flare-ups even after successful treatment. Here’s what you should know:
Topical Treatments: These are applied directly to the skin and can include:
Benzoyl Peroxide: Kills bacteria that cause acne.
Salicylic Acid: Helps unclog pores.
Retinoids: These vitamin A derivatives help unclog pores and can be available as over-the-counter or prescription treatments.
Topical Antibiotics: These help reduce bacteria on the skin surface.
Oral Antibiotics: Reduce bacteria and inflammation.
Combined Oral Contraceptives: For women, certain birth control pills can help regulate hormones that trigger acne.
Anti-Androgen Agents: These block the effect of androgens (male hormones) on sebaceous glands.
Isotretinoin (Accutane): A potent medication for severe acne that didn’t respond to other treatments.
Light and Laser Therapy: Target the deeper layers of skin without harming the surface.
Chemical Peels: Help with superficial acne or acne scars.
Extraction and Drainage: Useful for treating large cysts.
Lifestyle and Home Remedies:
Using non-comedogenic skincare and makeup products, adopting a skincare routine suitable for your skin type, managing stress, and maintaining a balanced diet can all contribute to managing acne.
Hormonal Therapy: In some cases, especially in adult women, hormonal imbalances could be the cause of persistent acne. Treating the root hormonal cause can be effective in such scenarios.
Severity and Type of Acne: The best approach depends on the type (e.g., blackheads, whiteheads, cystic lesions) and severity (mild, moderate, severe) of acne. Some might find relief with over-the-counter treatments, while others may require a combination of treatments.
Maintenance: Even after acne clears, ongoing treatment is often necessary to keep it in check.
Potential Side Effects: Some treatments, especially medications like isotretinoin, have potential side effects that require monitoring.
Persistence and Patience: Acne treatments can often take time (weeks or even months) to show significant results. Consistency and patience are crucial.
In summary, while acne may not have a “cure” in the strictest sense, it can often be effectively managed, controlled, or dramatically reduced with appropriate treatment. Consulting with a dermatologist or skincare professional can guide you toward the most effective strategies for your individual situation.
