Do you have pesky whiteheads, blackheads, and milia? Extractions are a great add on to treatments as just a treatment may not always target those imperfections.
A simple Microdermabrasion or other cell renewal treatment may not remove all of the skins impurities. This is why we always suggest adding on extractions. Extractions rid the skin of those pesky bumps to even out the skin and make it smoother.
Extractions may be tempting to do at home by yourself. Doing this can actually cause injury to the skin, and also cause dirt to go deeper into the skin leaving the impurity worse than before. Always trust a professional to complete extractions for you.
Our esthetician takes the time to extract every whitehead, blackhead, or milia to improve the texture of the skin by smoothing it out. By clearing out the clogged pore and acne, the result is fresher, cleaner looking skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Common areas for extractions include the face and neck, but essentially any other area in need of extractions can be treated.
Can I Combine This With Other Treatments?
Extractions can be added on to essentially any skin treatment. Extractions help to rid the skin of impurities which leads to a more impactful treatment and clearer skin.
How Do I Prepare for This Treatment?
Please avoid using any retinols or products with active ingredients at least 5 days prior as your skin may be more sensitive. Be sure to let your esthetician know any products currently in your skincare regimen.
If receiving skin treatments or using medications such as Accutane, make sure to mention this to your attending esthetician before treatment begins.
Is There Downtime?
There is no downtime with this treatment other than some mild redness post-treatment that subsides on its own within hours. You can get this treatment done on your lunch break and go back to work looking refreshed and glowing!
Always wear sunscreen with SPF30 or higher following a cell renewal treatment. At Thornhill Skin Clinic, we will apply sun protection upon completion of your appointment.
