WHAT IS IT:

The manual or physical removal of blackheads (comedones), whiteheads (closed comedones), milia and other skin congestion with a traditional hands-on method. 

WHAT IS IT FOR:

  • Congested skin

  • Milia

  • Acne

  • Deep cleansing

WHAT HAPPENS:

The comedo or other skin congestion is extracted by gloved hand, sometimes with the help of a sterile disposable microlance or implement.

 

Traditional deep cleansing with manual extractions can be a good means of breaking the congestion break-out cycle and support the action of actives such as retinol, AHA's and Benzoyl Peroxide, or with reactive skins, prebiotics and anti-inflammatories. It can also be used to support medical treatment for acne, with the approval of your dermatologist. 

 

Regular Microneedling or resurfacing with AHA's can make extractions less necessary. CITbyJacquelineParker®, P&CbyJacquelineParker are excellent options. Microneedling causes growth factors to be released which speed up cell renewal and normalise desquamation.

 

Alternatively, combine with our Plasma facials, Medi-Facials such as Meder Science, Oxyjet or Acnelight Photofacials. Traditional deep cleansing may be suggested for you in Jacqueline's in-depth assessment process

 

DOWNTIME:

None. Mineral make-up can be applied 

DISCOMFORT LEVEL:

Mild. 

RECOMMENDED FREQUENCY:

As required or monthly for those who suffer with congestion. Weekly or twice weekly for acne if part of a treatment plan.

NEED TO KNOW:

Skin functions need to be normalised with deeper acting treatments and/or home care for lasting results.

SUITABILITY WHEN PREGNANT OR LACTATING: 

Yes.

MORE INFORMATION

Should I extract my own spots at home?


It is better to treat any infected spot (papules or pustules) with topical or oral anti-infection treatments instead of attempting to extract them. Picking, scratching or incorrectly extracting infected spots can cause or worsen scarring. Once infection is addressed, extraction, when done properly, is safer to do. We offer a 10 minute SOS emergency treatment for unexpected arrivals. Cystic and any inflamed acne should always be taken seriously and addressed, to avoid scarring. Certain types of skin lesions will need surgical removal.
