Even if you have seemingly acne-free skin, it doesn’t mean that your skin is in the clear. There can be blackheads and comedones that are embedded under, leaving little bumps on your skin. You could use cosmetics to treat it, but it would take forever to effectively unclog pores. The most effective solution to treat blackheads and comedones, as well as pimples and whiteheads, are none other than facial extraction, a direct treatment to unclog pores.

While extraction tools are easily accessible, you should never attempt it at home, as you could damage your skin and worsen your skin condition. Instead, you should leave it to the professionals.

In order to unclog pores, here are the five best extraction facial treatments in Singapore.

1. Le Beau Spa

We’ve all heard of omakase restaurants before, but what about an omakase facial treatment? As our skin is ever-changing from time to time, Le Beau Spa’s Omakase Organic Plant Extract Treatment is tailored according to your skin’s needs. 

A hidden gem located just across Bugis Junction, Le Beau Spa is a beauty salon that specialises in facial extraction. Their beauty specialists had gone through intensive professional training in their extraction skills, allowing them to be touted as one of the best extraction beauty salon in Singapore.

Before commencing the treatment, their specialists will analyse your skin type — is it acne-prone, oily, dry, etc. The 90-minutes treatment includes double cleansing, exfoliating, extraction, customised ampoules and face masques. All the products used are from Germany and specifically curated to suit sensitive skin. Their beauty specialists also provide relaxing face and shoulder massages, and eyebrow shaping.

What happens when you combine facial spa with medical treatments? You get Ensoul, a medical clinic that uses leading-edge technologies to ensure effective and long-lasting results.

Ensoul’s Signature Acne MediFacial uses medical-grade products to effectively clear current acne and prevent future breakouts. There may be a stigma that medical-grade cosmetics may be too ‘strong’ for the skin. But fret not, Ensoul’s doctors will first assess your skin condition before prescribing appropriate products that are appropriate for your skin type.

Ensoul combines extraction with a chemical peel, enhancing its effectiveness in treating acne as it removes excess sebum and debris from the skin’s follicles. Not only does this effectively unclogs pores, it neutralises any active acne lesions, and prevents future outbreaks. Other high-end equipment, such as the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and ultrasound therapy, are used to complement the extraction process, and improves the skin’s texture and tone.

5. Illumia Therapeutics

Traditional extraction tools consist of a small metal rod with a hook or a loop at the end. It’s effective, and generally safe when conducted by professionals. But there’s another way to unclog pores — a novel way that doesn’t involve any direct scraping or poking of your skin.

Illumia Therapeutics’ Hydra-Detox Balancing Facial deep cleanses the skin with a powerful suction, which is paired with a beta hydroxy solution (BHA) solution, to unclog pores without any irritation. The treatment also includes an exfoliating solution that comprises alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which peels away dead and damaged skin to allow a healthier layer to regenerate.

The beauty specialists might also recommend add-on treatments depending on your skin condition. The Hydra-Detox Balancing Facial can only clear the skin on the surface, and not the root problem. For instance, acne-prone skin might need an additional treatment to balance sebum production.
