Extractions are a non-surgical treatment.
This treatment helps to remove blemishes, clogged pores, and blackheads. A mild, temporary blush surrounding the treated area may be the only evidence of your having had an extraction performed. There is no “down time.” You may resume regular activities immediately unless otherwise instructed by your provider.
Occasionally, several treatments are necessary to fully clear the area of concern. These treatments are typically scheduled 2-4 weeks apart. With this systematic approach you will experience progressive improvement.
An intralesional corticosteroid injection is sometimes required to reduce the inflammation and relieve pain in a specific area of the body, such as a papule, nodule, pimple or acne cyst.
Within a few hours, the inflamed area or cyst will reduce. Depending on the area and diagnosis, a series of injections may be required. Our qualified providers will assist you in your treatment plan.
