Facial extractions (also referred to as deep pore cleansing) is a mechanical or manual procedure done as part of a hydrafacial to clear compacted or clogged pores. Most people need several extractions during a facial to enjoy the best results.
Over time, our skin pores are bound to get clogged by excess oil, dead skin cells, and dirt/debris, which oxidize, resulting in blackheads (visible dark spots in the skin). Blackheads are almost guaranteed regardless of a person’s daily skincare routine. Extractions get rid of blackheads, as well as pimples and pustules, depending on their depth and size.
Some skin pores may require extraction earlier than others. Attempting to extract pores that aren’t ready can result in blemishes, among other skin problems. You need a professional to get the timing right.
While you can attempt to do facial extractions on your own at home, it isn’t advisable to do so because;
Most people who attempt DIY facial extractions tend to squeeze the wrong pores. Before attempting to do extractions at home, you should know which pores are ready to be popped and the ones that need to be left alone.
It takes skill and experience to extract without leaving a bloody mess and scarring.
Some skin types can react violently to DIY poking and prodding. Extractions basically squeeze skin, increasing chances of inflammation and infections if burst pimples result in skin tears that don’t heal properly.
A skin specialist will know the pimples to avoid and how to tackle different pores that may be unique to different skin types. Most importantly, skin specialists can tell apart pimples that need attention from those that tend to look lumpy but don’t have visible heads.
You may need a dermatologist to drain a cyst. A pimple may also refuse to pop as expected. If you have certain skin conditions like inflammatory acne, you shouldn’t attempt DIY extractions. The procedure should be done in medical spas fully equipped with professionals and the right equipment to avoid bacterial skin infections, among other problems that can worsen your face.
Most importantly, extractions aren’t one-off. You need a skin specialist to advise you on how many procedures you need.
