Skin-kind acne facials at Aesthetics Labs are a range of facial treatments that cleanse, decongest, detoxify and heal the skin. They have been specially formulated to address the needs of acne-prone skin and relieve a range of associated issues.
We understand how hard it can be to find the right skincare treatments and products when you’re prone to spots, blemishes, blocked pores or scarring. It’s essential that you use products that will not only relieve the symptoms but also help to address the root causes and protect your skin’s health in the future.
This is what our acne facials do. They are unique to Aesthetics Lab and include the popular ALab Clear Facial, which is formulated to destroy acne-causing bacteria, unblock your pores and regulate sebum production. It also reduces inflammations, refines open pores and can prevent the formation of scars. The result? Clearer, healthier and more balanced skin.

Before any of our acne facials, we’ll talk to you about your skin health and daily skincare regime. You’ll also have an in-depth skin assessment, which enables us to personalise your treatment. This includes identifying which decongesting peel would be best for your needs.
Our acne facials all broadly follow the same structure, but we’re going to look at the ALab Clear Facial here as this is often what we recommend for congested skin.
With this relaxing treatment, you can just lie back and relax as we gently cleanse your skin. We’ll then apply a gentle but effective clarifying skin peel that’s designed for use on sensitive or damaged, inflamed skin.
We’ll take the peel off your skin after several minutes. As well as removing any dead skin cells, this peel will help to regulate your skin and destroy acne-causing bacteria, leading to ongoing improvements to your skin clarity post-treatment.
Next, we’ll carry out gentle extractions to unblock your pores. With your skin feeling fresher and healthier, you will then enjoy a light detoxifying and draining facial massage.
Finally, we use LED light therapy because it’s proven to have an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory healing effect on the skin. This will enhance your skin’s recovery and new balance.
Thanks to LED Therapy at the end of this treatment, you should leave Aesthetics Lab with your skin glowing with health. We will apply moisturiser and sunscreen to your skin for added protection and then you’re free to carry on with your day.
Side effects are unlikely after acne facials at Aesthetics Lab because they’ve been designed with sensitive skin in mind. The LED light therapy helps to soothe your skin but if you do experience any redness, it should pass within an hour or two.
Your skin will look refreshed immediately, but you should notice ongoing improvements, especially a reduction in any spots, blocked pores or inflammation. We’ll give you clear aftercare information to prolong the benefits.
We recommend going make-up free for 24 hours following your facial. If you do need to use make-up, opt for a mineral product as this won’t clog your pores.
For the best results, we recommend a skincare routine in between your acne facials with us. We will discuss this with you during your appointment and can help you to choose the optimum homecare product(s) for your skin if needed.
Generally, we recommend having any of our acne facials every two to four weeks – this includes the ALab Clear Facial. Of course, we will always look at the condition of your skin and the concerns you want to treat before giving you an individual recommendation at your consultation.
