Let Sheperd Integrative Dermatology help you Remove those pesky clogged pores or blackheads. Give us a call at our Mt. Pleasant office today!

An extraction is a process of clearing a clogged pore by manual or mechanical means. Extractions are often performed as part of a facial. Most people need at least a couple of extractions during each facial, though you may require more extractions if this is your first facial. Blackheads are the most common reason for extraction.

A blackhead is not necessarily “dirt in the pores” as many people think. It is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. The dark spot which is visible on the surface of the skin is oil which has oxidized and darkened on exposure to the air. Depending on the size and depth, pustules and pimples can also be extracted. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted. Some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several treatments before they can be cleared.
