What will it involve?
Your skin care practitioner will complete a detailed consultation to establish your skin type, condition and your skin care improvement goals all of which will determine the most suitable pre Steam & Pore Extraction exfoliation treatment to suit you. (The Steam & Pore Exfoliation is not available without a pre exfoliation treatment).
The skin is cleansed followed by the application of a Pre Exfoliation Treatment:
An exfoliation treatment such as a Fresh Up Light, Micro-dermabrasion or an Acid Skin Peel is essential prior to a Steam & Pore Extraction to lift layers of unwanted dead skin cells.
This also prepares the skin for the application of the congestion-softening solution, which can then penetrate into the skin’s pores.
The steam allows the pores to relax, thus allowing the softening solution to penetrate even deeper, loosening deep blocked pores.
Once the congestion has been softened we gently extract blackheads, oil-filled pores, spots and milia, leaving your skin cleaner and clearer.
Why have the procedure?
From our years of experience this in the only successful procedure to safely remove skin blockage. It provides outstanding results in the reduction of:
• Blocked pores
Does it hurt?
Each individual has a varied pain threshold to the extraction action. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
We endeavour to extract as much of the skin’s congestion as possible in a single treatment. However, if the skin is extremely blocked a course of 3 to 5 treatments taken weekly is strongly advised to achieve optimum results.
If you are undertaking a course of exfoliation treatments, it is very common for underlying deep congestion to work to the surface of the skin. It is advised to add Steam and Pore Extraction, which will enable us to remove any blockage as it appears.
How quickly will I see the results?
You will see results immediately after a single treatment and is progressive after each session.
How long will the results last?
Commencing a single treatment the skin will appear clearer and brighter for several weeks, and up to several months commencing a course of treatments. However this depends on many factors, such as how one cares for one’s skin post treatment, the severity of one’s natural oil production, diet, stress, hormone influences and lifestyle.
