Extraction services are available to cleanse compacted or clogged pores, usually as part of a facial.
Treatment begins with a complete facial cleansing. Then a specially formulated liquid or cream is applied with steam to soften the skin, and make extraction easier. After this, gentle pressure will be applied to the effected pores.
Once the extractions have been completed, antiseptic or antibacterial products are applied to the skin to return it to its normal pH levels and decrease the odds of further breakouts.
Because home extractions can spread bacteria or damage pores, it is best to let your esthetician perform the procedure, and to avoid picking or popping pores on your own.
