Facial extractions cured me

Hey guys, I created a log in just to share with you my personal story. So I developed acne when I was about 20, and for the past seven years it fluctuated between slight- moderate- and moderately severe. And for the life of me, I tried to pin point what the hell the root cause was.
It took such an emotional toll on me I tried endless solutions which range from the following- cutting out dairy, cutting out processed sugars, doing a colon cleanse, endless herbs and vitamins, liver cleanse, acupuncture, vibrational healing, oil cleansing method, tea tree oil, all natural oil moisturizers, aloe vera, lemon, clay masks, prescription acne treatment. Just to name the ones off the top of my head. 
You name any alternative method, and I tried it. Spent hours online, hours on this website, trying to find a cure. Nothing worked, and I refused to go on Accutane. I swore that there was a holistic method out there that could cure me. 
This summer my face broke out worse than ever before, and my friend one day told me try her facialist, as she gotten great results from her in the past. 
Hesitantly I went. I canceled my first appointment after scaring myself from people's comments online from facial extractions. 
The first time SUCKED. It hurt, I bled, I cried from all the frustration this acne has caused me. The facialist was sweet and reassured that with continued use my skin would improve, and that she had been doing this for 20 years. 
Fast forward 4 months later, going every other week. And not only do the facials not hurt nearly as much (still uncomfortable, but totally doable), but for the first time in yearsssss my skin is clear. I just have some marks, which are fading, and if I eat junk I get a small zit. But NO MORE BREAKOUTS!!! 
She also took me off my moisturizers and face washes as they contained oils which she said are not good for my skin type. I spent so much money on natural oils- hemp seed, jojoba, tea tree, rosehip- and they all didn't do shit. 
I'm now on a simple face wash, and a spot gel she recommended. That's it. 
Contrary to my belief, my cure wasn't some natural, organic, cleansing solution. I know it is for many, but if you've given that route an Ernest try with no results -look into facial extractions done by some with lots of experience working with acne. 
After yearssss I finally feel confident enough to wear my hair up, not wear make up, and wake up to someone bare faced. It's amazing on the other side. Don't give up!
