Stress Management Techniques to Reduce Stress-Related Skin Problems


Last updated:

Stress. We all deal with it, but have you ever thought about the impact it has on your skin? Stress management is a vital step in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and glowing skin. When we get too stressed, it causes cortisol levels to rise, resulting in increased inflammation, fatigue, sleep problems, cognitive issues and so much more. 

The results of increased cortisol in the body all have the potential to negatively impact our skin health. Whether it’s stress acne, stress rash or other stress-related skin problems, it is vital that we take care of ourselves and reduce stress to maintain healthy, radiant skin. 

Ways to Treat Stress Acne or Stress-Related Skin Problems:

Clarifying Facial

The Clarifying Facial is a great way to treat stress acne because it reduces the appearance of blemishes, breakouts, excess oil, and diminishes redness. It is also an incredibly relaxing service, so you’re combining stress acne treatment with a stress management technique! 

This facial includes a deep cleanse, exfoliation, and purifying mask helps to soften your pores and loosen any congestion. Lymphatic drainage is done to alleviate toxin buildup under the skin which can cause bacteria retention. Our estheticians will manually extract any areas of concern followed by a Hydro Jelly mask and LED blue light to calm and rehydrate irritated skin. We top off this facial with custom medical grade serums, moisturizers, and SPF. Sounds relaxing, doesn’t it? Relaxation + stress acne skin treatment = less stressed you. 

Hydrafacial MD

The Hydrafacial is a 3 step process that helps you achieve healthy looking skin. First, we cleanse and peel to uncover a new layer of skin. Then, we extract and hydrate to remove impurities from the skin and quench the skin with intense moisturizers. Finally, we fuse and protect to saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to promote healthy, glowing skin. The hydrafacial is a great way to treat stress acne and also decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - another stress-related skin issue. 


This 3-in-1 facial combines gentle exfoliation, natural skin oxygenation, and a deep facial rejuvenation with the infusion of essential revitalizing nutrients. The Glo2Facial uses red light therapy and neo-massage to reduce redness, inflammation, and promote collagen production. Ultrasound helps penetrate products deeper into your skin. The Glo2Facial plumps, hydrates and helps renew that youthful glow. Relax with us while fighting aging and acne! 

How to Reduce Stress-Related Premature Aging

Preventative Botox

There's a reason to get preventative Botox®. Do you furrow your brows or frown more often when you’re feeling stressed? Preventative Botox® can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are created by increased stress! 


This FDA-approved dermal filler is a great solution for adding volume back into your face. Do you notice sunken eyes or cheeks as a result of continued stress? Juvéderm treatments can help restore volume in your face, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce signs of premature aging. 

Sculptra® Aesthetic 

If you’re looking for long lasting, natural filler results to boost collagen production, Sculptra® could be a great fit for you. Sculptra® Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance.

Hair Regeneration 

Sometimes increased stress can result in hair loss. Hair Regeneration treatment uses Liquid Gold or Platelet-Rich-Plasma therapy to stimulate natural hair growth by injecting PLP into the scalp.
