The dreaded black heads, clogged pores and pimples seem to be a fact of life for some people. But do you really need to put up with congested problem skin? What about professional blackhead extraction treatments and pore suction facials? What is best? Find out what an extraction facial treatment is and whether they are the right solution for you.
What is an extraction facial treatment?
An extraction treatment is a deep cleansing facial that is designed to gently remove clogging in the pores. This allows the skin to breathe and detoxify normally. Extractions can be performed manually, with ultrasound devices, or with suction based devices. In our “Steam & Squeeze” extraction facial we perform a double cleanse, gentle exfoliation, and steam treatment prior to the extraction treatment. This process opens up the pores and allows our skin experts to gently remove a measure of the pore congestion within the skin.
Will an extraction facial treatment damage my skin?
When performed correctly, an extraction facial treatment will remove skin dulling and clogging debris without damaging the skin or leaving the skin vulnerable to infection. For some skin types, extraction facials are an essential monthly skin health routine that prevents the skin from developing acne.
Are extractions good for acne skin?
Acne is a delicate skin condition that needs to be treated differently depending on the type of acne that is present. Generally it is best to kill the P Acne bacteria and calm the inflammation first before having extraction facials. Our skin health experts will be able to direct you on the best course of action depending on the phase your acne may be presenting on your first visit.
How do I know if an extraction facial treatment will be good for me?
Before booking in for an extraction facial it is best to drop in or call the salon first. Be sure to ask for the qualifications of the skin therapist who will be serving you. Ask whether they are skilled in treatment of oily, congested and even acne prone skin. Book an initial consultation, which is usually free in most skin salons. This will give you the opportunity to ask enough questions to be comfortable with your chosen skin clinic.
