What Are Acne Extractions?
For acne-prone skin with a tendency to form blackheads, whiteheads, little hard white bumps (called milia) or ingrown hairs, we recommend regular extractions with a medical professional who can safely clear clogged pores and remove debris without causing scars, spreading bacteria and making things worse.
How Acne Extractions Work
Medical extractions for acne and acne-prone skin are performed in a sterile environment using specially designed instruments that gently loosen and remove sebum and debris from pores. Some extractions may require a tiny incision with a lancet to release trapped sebum.
Extractions can be done as frequently as required and are often combined with microdermabrasion, chemical peels or Nano Laser Peel™ as part of regular maintenance. Recommendations on skincare products that keep skin clear between treatments will be provided at your appointment.
