What is a Medical Facial?

A medical facial is performed by a licensed esthetician, under the supervision of a dermatologist.  Medical facials are used to extract blockheads and whiteheads and clean out the clogged pores that lead to acne.  Prior to the medical extractions, the esthetician may apply steam to your skin in order to open clogged pores.  She will then perform extractions to remove comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and treat inflammatory papules (“pimples.”) Medical facials are often performed in conjunction with a chemical peel, to treat active acne more aggressively.  Patients may experience mild redness after the medical facial, but there is no true “downtime.” Medical-Extraction-NYC Click here to schedule a consultation for medical extractions.
