What is an Extraction Facial?
Leave pimple popping to the pros. Doing it yourself can make swelling worse, leave you with scars, takes weeks to heal and spread bacteria. Have you ever popped a spot before bed, woke up the next morning and there is another next to it twice as big? Extraction facials are designed to safely remove the pimple with minimal damage to the skin.
How does it work?
An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore. This is done by manual or mechanical means. Prepping the skin to loosen the clogged pore before the preferred method is used helps to extract the pimple.
What is it good for?
Blackheads are the most common reason for extraction, a blackhead is not always dirt in the pore. 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 to the air. With the right equipment, this can be easily removed from the skin. Depending on the size and depth, pustules and pimples can also be extracted.
Who can have the treatment?
Mostly everyone, clients with pore vascular structures should avoid extraction facials.
