Acne Extractions

Treat your acne-ridden skin with care and unclog your pores with our professional acne extractions. Greenwich Point Dermatology is where medical dermatology, advanced surgical techniques, and cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology treatments meet to create a lifetime of healthy, beautiful skin. Head dermatologist, Dr. Sarah Dolder, and her expert team are proud to offer acne extractions to patients in Greenwich, Stamford, and the neighboring communities in Fairfield County.

What are Acne Extractions?

It’s important to realize that sometimes acne isn’t your fault. Not all of our pores are created equal, and some of our pores are going to clog no matter how many medical-grade skincare products we use. For that reason, Dr. Sarah Dolder and her expert team of medical professionals are happy to provide patients with professional acne extractions. Unlike pore extractions done at home, our acne extractions are done with special tools that minimize damage to the surrounding skin while clearing out as much as possible from your clogged pores.

What Can I Expect During my Acne Extractions Treatment?

Your acne extraction treatments will be performed in our state-of-the-art medical facility by Dr. Sarah Dolder or one of our other expert medical team members. Before your acne extractions begin, your skin will be cleansed and a mild topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any discomfort you may feel during your treatment. Once you are fully relaxed, Dr. Dolder or our medical professional will carefully begin extracting the dirt and oils from your clogged pores. We may recommend a microneeding or chemical peel treatment in addition to your acne extraction to gently exfoliate your uppermost layers of skin and minimize any enlarged pores.

What Results Can I Expect from my Acne Extractions?

Following your acne extractions, your skin may be red and sensitive to the touch for up to 24 hours. We recommend that for this time you do not wear any makeup and continue your daily skincare routine as normal. Many of our patients report getting an acne breakout following their acne extractions. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within the following few days. Dr. Dolder and her team may recommend regular acne extractions every three to four weeks depending on the condition of your skin and your desired results.

How Much Do Acne Extractions Cost?

The cost of acne extractions at Greenwich Point Dermatology will vary depending on the type of service you receive. To get a better idea of how much your acne extraction treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in and see our team of Board Certified Dermatologists for a solution.
