Now let’s talk about extractions. While you shouldn’t take an extraction tool to your own skin DIY-style, it can be done by a professional. While you do know your skin better than anyone else, skin experts have proper tools, sanitation practices, and training to perform extractions in a safe and effective manner, which is why it’s not as safe to do at home.
So if you’re dealing with clogged pores more often than not, you may consider an acne facial. Beyond just extractions, acne facials also include topical treatments with ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, etc.
Acne facials may even include a blue light therapy session, which can help to kill bacteria, regulate sebum production, and sooth the skin. You can read all about these facials here if you want to learn more.
