I was reading in the newest Seventeen magazine (pg.70) that an extraction would be very beneficial for someone with acne...

as i was reading the steps,i got to the actul extraction part. It says that "the facialist uses a small,needlelike instrument or her fingers to squeeze clogged pores to remove dirt"


that sounds like it hurts!

it also says that "the pain factor is medium to high,depending on hor clogged your pores are"


has anyone here had an extraction? if so,what was it like?

thanks! :D

Sometimes is do mine own extractions with my blackhead remover. The pain is alright, just depends on how hard you press down.

I sometimes use the remover for popping some zits, now that hurts.

I've never had an actual facial though but i'd rather extract things myself so I don't screw up my skin.

I get extractions with my facial/glycolic peel once a month. They rarely hurt - and even if they do, its really minimal pain. It may depend on the skills of the person doing the extractions though. My esthetician specializes in treating acne, so she is very experienced with doing extractions.
