Facial With Extractions
An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Most people need at least a couple of extractions during each facial, though you may require more extractions if this is your first facial.
Comedones (blackheads) are the most common reason for extraction. A blackhead is not necessarily “dirt in the pores” as many people think. It is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. The dark spot which is visible on the surface of the skin is oil which has oxidized and darkened on exposure to the air, like when you slice an apple and allow it to sit out for a while.
Pustules and pimples can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted.
Some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several treatments before they can be cleared.
Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
- Enlarged pores and blackheads
- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Dull-looking skin complexion
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sun damage
