Blackhead extractions

blackhead extractions

A guilty pleasure.

There’s something about popping blemishes that can be so satisfying to watch. Pimple popping videos gained such popularity, there was a television series devoted to the extraction!  

So, what does this juicy procedure involve? Read on as we dive into your pores for a proper blackhead extraction! 


blackheads

Blackhead extractions are the focal point of our pore cleansing facial: the PORE.

Pore cleansing is the process of physically and/or chemically removing debris from the pores. The process clears build-up from the pores and allows them to contract.

Start with a fresh face.

Extractions are best on freshly cleansed and exfoliated skin. Cleansing ensures that no harmful bacteria is present when exposing the open pore. Exfoliation clears the opening of the pore and loosens the tip of the debris.  

After cleansing and exfoliating, a specialized solution is applied to help dislodge the oily debris. The solution is commonly a sodium bicarbonate blend that creates a chemical reaction known as saponification. Consequently, oils and fats are transformed into a soap solution. In addition, oily debris becomes water-soluble in the process. 

The skin is then placed under a warm steamer. The warmth and humidity of the steam opens up the pores.  

O3

Professional steamers feature an Ozone (O3) function that emits ozone steam onto the skin. Oincreases the skin’s healing abilities and disinfects the surface. O3 also has an oil-reducing effect that lasts beyond the service.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for…

Physical extractions are performed using a special tool with directional pressure. Large pores are emptied using a “scooping” maneuver, while smaller pores are purged with a simple glide of the tool or fingers.

Following extractions, the skin is soothed and sanitized with a post extraction solution. The solution usually contains an antiseptic and a calming ingredient. 

Blackhead extractions can take 15-30 minutes depending on the skin condition. They can also leave the skin looking irritated for 1-2 hours. Once the pores are cleared, they can remain clear for up to 8 weeks.  


When it comes to our role as skincare technicians, we must say juicy extractions are by far a service favourite!

Dérmica offers a selection of skincare spa services for all skin types.

We’d like to be part of your skincare regimen! Dérmica offers multiple skincare spa services to meet your needs

FACIALS

Extractions during a facial.

Facials are a great way to keep your pores clean and free of oil or impurities that can cause breakouts. We recommend booking a facial every 4-6 weeks.


CHEMICAL PEELS

skincare spa service- peels

Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation because they accelerate the cell turnover rate by chemically penetrating beneath the surface of the skin to dissolve away dead skin cells. If you are treating a concern, such as sun damage, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 4-8 sessions.


PHOTOFACIALS

skincare spa services- photofacials

Photofacials use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology to diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and other textural damage. We recommend 4-6 treatments when treating the above skin concerns.


DERMAPLANING

skincare spa service- dermaplane

Dérmaplane delivers a fine shave that removes the dull surface skin and vellus facial hair as the technician gently grazes a medical-grade scalpel edge over the surface of the skin.

PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE AT HOME

Professional treatments should go hand in hand with clinical grade skincare products that will help to maximize results.

This is why we offer 15% OFF all Glo Skin Beauty products in-store with any of the treatments above.

September Special- FREE AHA/BHA Peel Boost to your LUX or Back Treatment

Throughout August, we are adding a free AHA/BHA Peel boost ($40 value) to all LUX  facials and Back Treatments! 

 

The LUX 

The LUX facial is what its name surmises, luxury. 

Skincare, massage, and brows all in one package. 

Your skin is treated to a thorough deep pore cleanse and exfoliation. After a warm steam session, extractions release impurities and debris from the skin. Masking and moisture care infuses your skin with nutrients. 

Whether you have blemishes, dry, oily, or acne prone skin, our custom applications ensure that we address your specific needs every time. 

Your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, and face are treated to a relaxing combination of Swedish and Pressure point massage. 

That’s not all though, your spa session is finished off with a dérmica brow Shape, leaving your face looking and feeling anew! 


AHA/BHA Peel Boost 

AHA/BHA acids are ideal for treating active acne conditions, dry skin, pigmentation, and fine lines. They can be layered and are available in varying degrees of intensity.  

The AHA/BHA Boost is a light acid peel that gives your skin that gentle boost it needs to self-regenerate and repair. There is an expected downtime of 1-3 days depending on your skin. 


The BACK Treatment

Our Back Treatment, a facial for your back, begins with a deep pore cleanse followed by exfoliation to remove build up and dead skin. Next, we apply a professional extraction fluid that opens the pores and softens the oil and debris that causes clogged pores.

A relaxing steam session warms and softens the skin before the manual extractions begin. Your technician releases the trapped debris inside the pores using an extraction tool.

Steamed towels are used to wipe the skin clean in preparation to close the pores with toner. Toner is used to give your skin a boost of hydration which helps draw moisture deeper into the skin. Your back is then massaged with nutrients through a custom mask application. Ideal for all skin types.


This special is not valid with any other offer/promotion. Offer valid from September 3-28, 2019. No pre-purchasing.  BOOK NOW.

Struggling with Blackheads

Here’s our latest “Ask Dérmica” entry…


Hi Dérmica,
I’m struggling with blackheads. I just wonder if you can help with this problem.
Please give me some information of any technique that could help to reduce or get rid of blackheads.
Thank you so much.

-ANONYMOUS


Hello!

Blackheads are a common skin issue that can easily be treated at Dérmica. We recommend a 2-part treatment as follows:

Step 1:  PORE Facial ($85) to remove the existing blackheads from the pores. This treatment includes cleansing, exfoliation, steaming, and pore extractions.

Step 2: Photofacial ($45 – $175) to seal the pores closed and reduce the appearance of uneven texture and redness caused by enlarged pores. This treatment is performed by using IPL (Intense Pulse Light) device to treat the targeted condition.

Bookings are available at dermica.ca/book-now.

Hope this information helps…😊
