Extractions

Extractions are best performed by professionals, as doing it yourself may lead to scarring.

Typically extractions are requested by those with acne-prone or oily skin types, but that doesn’t mean other skin types don’t need a thorough inspection and cleaning, as well. When pores are congested you can see impurities or feel them under your skin. Extractions refer to the process of clearing clogged or obstructed pores, also known as comedones, from the skin.

There are two types of comedones: Open, blackheads, and closed, whiteheads.
Blackheads – impacted sebum in the pores and are most common in the T-zone.
Closed comedones – usually a result of bacteria buildup in the pore resulting in inflammation.
Both open and closed comedones can happen in other areas of the face, depending on skin type and your skincare habits.

Please Note: Breakouts that are infected and have no opening won’t be extracted because the disturbance will worsen the infection.
While extractions will help speed up the recovery process, they can’t magically banish all bumps and pimples. The key lies in your daily home care regime that really impacts clear results.
