Deep Cleansing Extraction facial

The safest and most effective way to clear acne and blackheads is to visit an aesthetician for a deep-cleansing extraction facial.

This specialized type of facial is done with quite a bit of care. Your aesthetician will start by gently cleansing and exfoliating your skin in order to remove bacteria and debris from the surface. They may then apply glycolic acid (AHA) peel to remove the next layer of dead skin cells. After that, will apply special gel to your face in order to open your pores.

The safest and most effective way to clear acne and blackheads is to visit an aesthetician for a deep-cleansing extraction facial.

After your pores are open, your provider will use their hands to gently manipulate your blackheads and whiteheads. In the case of blackheads, the gel should open your pores enough to loosen up the extra skin cells and sebum that are causing the clog. In many cases, an aesthetician will use cotton finger covers to protect your skin. There is a metal extraction tool that can be used for extracting blackheads from awkward areas, such as the deep folds around your nose, but finger manipulation is gentler and less painful.

Extracting whiteheads is a little different because the dead skin cells have more or less grown a covering over the clogged pore. This creates the pocket where the fluid that usually comes out builds up. In these cases, your provider may need to use a small, sharp lancet to gently open the skin. Whether or not they use a lancet instead of some other form of manipulation will vary depending on where you are having your facial done. Not all states allow aestheticians to use lancets.

Once your extractions are complete, your aesthetician will likely apply some serums and special mask. These will work to promote healing and calm any inflammation caused by the skin manipulations.

What To Except During Your Facial

The reality is that extraction facials aren’t the most comfortable option, but they are effective for those with acne issues. No two people are alike, so one person may feel more discomfort than another. Your pain level will be determined by your personal tolerance and how much build-up there is on the surface of your skin. Don’t be afraid to tell you aesthetician if you are uncomfortable. They may need to vary their own pressure levels while they work.

Extraction facials don’t take long; instead, they’re short and targeted. You may need several appointments before your entire face is treated. It’s better to work on small areas at each session so that your skin has time to recover and heal. Talk to your provider about how often you should return to treat new areas and maintain the ones that have already been cleared.

Once you have had an extraction facial, it’ll be up to you to maintain your skin to prevent severe breakouts in the future. This means regularly cleansing your face at home, removing your makeup before you go to sleep at night, staying properly hydrated, and seeking regular professional care.

While there is really no way to shrink the overall size of your pores once they’ve been stretched out, regular care will help you to keep them clean so they don’t get swollen or clogged again.
