Acne Facial

Facial Treatment in Philadelphia

Acne facial treatments can create a remarkable improvement in the skin. Extractions can improve the skin's appearance. The most common mistake in facial care is imprecise, incomplete and unprofessional excision of comedones. Medical extraction of comedones is a precise procedure by a trained professional aesthetician. It involves use of a surgical grade extractor to ensure maximum benefit with minimum scarring or injury to surrounding tissue. Care is taken to customize preparation of the skin pre-extraction and appropriately treat the skin post-extraction. Acne facials can be done at 4 to 6 week intervals while undergoing treatment for acne vulgaris.
