Medical Extractions

For a more immediate solution to an acne outbreak, you might consider a medical extraction. This is basically a medical facial which includes an extraction. What this does is to get rid of any active lesions and it also works preventively as well in terms of lessening the chances of future flare ups. At our New York office, we’ve done a number of medical extractions on patients who have a big event or need to clear up acne issues fast for whatever reason. If you’re plagued by clogged pores and want a thorough cleansing, then a medical extraction is definitely the way to go. Our NYC area Clear Clinic caters to patients seeking effective treatment for their acne. And a medical grade facial with a medical extraction is one very popular option.

Medical extractions vs. extractions at the spa

What exactly is the difference between a medical extraction and a spa extraction—this is a question many of our New York dermatology patients have. The main difference is that our estheticians, unlike those at a spa, are under the guidance of a NYC dermatologist. This means they understand which skincare products will help and which products could actually make your acne worse. The environment in our New York acne center is also extremely sterile—all instruments are meticulously cleaned.

What to expect

Primarily the esthetician may steam your skin briefly—this opens up the pores. Next, there is a thorough cleansing of clogged pores which helps to eliminate whiteheads and blackheads while also decreasing the inflammation associated with the acne lesions. Medical extractions can actually be done in conjunction with other types of acne treatments. Some of our New York dermatology patients combine them with chemical peels for instance in order to further boost the effects of the treatments. Most can go immediately back to their daily routine following their medical extraction.

Do you recommend seeing an esthetician for medical extractions on a regular basis?

If you are prone to acne outbreaks, then consulting with an esthetician regularly may be a good idea. One thing you definitely want to refrain from doing is popping your own zits. This can actually do far more harm than good. First off, popping a pimple can exacerbate scarring as well as lead to further breakouts. A medical extraction on the other hand fully rids your skin of dead cells and the bacteria that causes acne in the first place. Estheticians use medical grade instruments and wear sterile gloves in order to prevent any bacteria from being spread.
