We know getting extractions isn’t your favorite part of your facial or peel. It’s not a relaxing as a massage and takes away from the relaxation of the hour, but extractions serve their purpose. At Spa Kingston, we recommend extractions with every 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 aesthetician to safely remove your whiteheads, pustules, and pimples. Home extractions can damage your pores and spread bacteria, making the skin worse instead of better. Our aestheticians know how to properly clear the clogged pores without spreading infection and inflammation.

There are numerous benefits to getting extractions and depending on your skin type, we’ll know how they will benefit you. If you are suffering from breakouts, contact our staff of professional aestheticians in San Diego to help you develop a unique skin care regimen. With the help of extractions, professional products, and facials, you’ll have the clear skin you always dreamed of in no time.
