Acne is a condition that many of us are unfortunate enough to have experienced at one point or another in our lives. It can be uncomfortable and embarrassing and can leave lingering and permanent scars if not treated properly.
Professional acne facial treatments go deep in your skin to address the underlying problem and initiate the healing process. Flawless By Melissa Fox, the award-winning beauty expert in Miami, offers several acne facial options. Our dedication to flawless skin drives us to explore the latest acne facial technologies and products to find a personalized solution for each of our customers.
What is Acne Extraction?
Acne extraction is a quick procedure performed by one of our experts at Flawless by Melissa Fox, to remove the contents of clogged pores, the leading cause of acne. This procedure involves gently removing dirt, makeup, sweat, and extra sebum with sterilized instruments while prepping the extraction site with alcohol to prevent bacteria from entering your skin during treatment.
The most common way to perform an acne extraction is as part of a facial treatment. First, our experts will exfoliate the area to get rid of any dead skin cells before continuing with the extraction process. After the process has been completed, your esthetician may apply medications or treatments such as LED lights or masks post-extraction for additional healing benefits.
Acne Extraction and its Benefits
Acne extraction is a great solution for those with persistent acne, which does not go away even after medical treatment. With acne extraction, the results can be seen immediately compared to creams, gels, and cleansers, which may take up to several weeks before any improvement can be seen.
Acne extraction also benefits those with large or severe acne that doesn't respond well to other treatments. It's effective in eliminating stubborn pimples in one single session, so you don't have to keep applying treatments day after day.
Overall, an extraction can offer quick relief when all else fails. An experienced esthetician with Flawless by Melissa Fox should perform this procedure, as removing comedones by yourself can result in further damage and scarring of the skin.
What to Expect with Acne Extraction at Flawless by Melissa Fox
For those suffering from moderate to severe acne, the thought of an extraction procedure might be intimidating. It's important to know, however, that when you visit one of our offices in Miami, Florida, for acne extraction treatment, you will receive the highest quality care possible. Not only will your skin first be cleansed thoroughly with a gentle cleanser and then a specialized enzyme with steam applied to soften the skin and prepare it for extraction, but all extractions will also be done under a magnifying lamp to ensure as much accuracy as possible during the process.
Another service offered at Flawless by Melissa Fox is chemical peels for acne treatment. Chemical peels are one of the most successful treatments for tackling stubborn acne and can help improve your skin's overall texture as well. Before you can undergo this treatment, you must have an initial consultation with an aesthetician to decide what type of peel will best suit you.
On the day of treatment itself, expect your specialist to cleanse your face before applying the prepared chemical solution on top of it to avoid any contact with sensitive areas such as the eyes or hairline and treat only those affected by acne.
