What You Should Know About Extractions in a Facial
Facial extractions, when done correctly, are definitely beneficial to our skin to restore radiance and glow. A good extraction can clear closed comedones, and unclog pores from whiteheads, blackheads and other impurities to restore skin clarity. By clearing up all these clogs, all your skincare products can now up their efficacy because your skin can absorb them better too.
If you have blackheads all over your nose or white bumps on your forehead that just won't go away, the best way to get rid of them is extraction during a professional facial treatment.
I know getting extractions isn’t favorite part of your facial. It’s not a relaxing as a massage and takes away from the relaxation of the hour, but extractions serve their purpose. I personaly recommend extractions with a facial treatment to ensure that your journey to clear skin is fast and long lasting. If you’ve ever shied away from facial extractions during your visit, here are three reasons to convince you of the benefits of extractions:
1 – Extractions are Great for Removing Blackheads
Blackheads are small black dots that appear on the skin formed from clogged pores getting exposed to air. These small blackheads are comedones and are formed when oil and dead skin cells get trapped in your hair follicles. Hard to remove and not recommended to try at home, blackheads can easily be cleared through extractions by unclogging pores.
2 – Extractions Help with Clearing Pores
By dislodging the buildup caused by oil and dirt, extractions help to clear pores giving you a clean canvas for your products. When your skin is freshly extracted, all the products you use at home and during the rest of your facial are more effective. That means clear skin, faster.
3 – Extractions Take Care of Unwanted Breakouts
Rather than picking at home, wait until your next facial for professional extractions. When you pick, you risk scarring in the area which nobody wants. Instead, trust in your therapist to safely remove your whiteheads, pustules, and pimples. Home extractions can damage your pores and spread bacteria, making the skin worse instead of better. Beauty therapist know how to properly clear the clogged pores without spreading infection and inflammation.
There are numerous benefits to getting extractions. With the help of extractions, professional products, and facials, you’ll have the clear skin you always dreamed of in no time.
