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:
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.
None. Mineral make-up can be applied
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.
