Owner & President of The Ole Henriksen Spa Talks Acne Treatments

June is National Acne Awareness Month which makes it a great time for your spa to highlight its acne treatments or introduce some new ones into the mix. We spoke with Vance Soto, President and Owner of The Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa to learn more about the acne treatments his spa’s clients can’t get enough of.

When it comes to clearing up acne blue LED treatments is a commonly recommended solution but Soto has taken light treatments to the next level with LHE Acne Light Treatment (Light, Heat, Energy). “This high-tech treatment uses three different lights - green, yellow, and red. Not only can it be added to any facial but it can be done as a standalone treatment,” he explained. Clients who opt for a series of this treatment can expect to see a reduction in acne and redness. It can also be used to clear stubborn blemishes and cystic acne.

For clients with very problematic skin, Soto said chemical peels are the way to go. Specifically, the spa’s VI Acne Peel. This full chemical peel takes just 20 minutes and allows master estheticians to pay special attention to their client’s eruptions and acne. One of the spa’s other popular acne treatments is their 50 or 80 minute Clarity Oxygen Treatment. What makes it unique is the clarifying serum used during the service. “It was designed by one of the top labs in the U.S. and it’s proprietary to the spa,” Soto said. This treatment clears oil build-up, which gives clients immediate results while improvements continue in the following days.

When I asked Soto about what makes The Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa unique he explained. “Technology is key. That being said we make sure our treatments always have the proper balance between tech and human touch.” He believes nothing can replace human touch and when combined with the best technology available his clients get the best experience possible.
