I had a client come in for her monthly facial today and tell me she loves how her skin is responding to the treatments and home care, but she really hates the extractions. She asked if we could possibly avoid them as they are painful and she is stressed and wanted to relax.

The short answer is of course we can. We have plenty of options in our treatments that can help do the work of pore cleansing. The results are not quite as effective but work none the less. In this case after her glycolic peel we used a purifying mask (she added on a collagen eye treatment) then a firming mask to finish.

She was thrilled and her skin looked fantastic. So lesson of the day, if you would rather not have extractions you don’t have to. Just let us know at your next appointment.
