Deep Pore Cleansing

Extraction is a traditional procedure that is performed using a metal loop extractor and a medical syringe needle. The process can be slightly uncomfortable, but it helps remove comedones, milia seeds, acne, pimple, black/whitehead and other impurities that clog up the surface of your skin.

This process must be performed by highly skilled aestheticians, as improper techniques may cause scarring or undesirable outcomes.

 

Cleansing Is Never Enough

The first step in our daily skin care regimen is cleansing. No doubt, it is very important! Cleansing away the dirt, oil, make up that lead to clogged pores and surface impurities is pivotal part of clean pores and a clear complexion. When your pores become clogged with excess sebum, dead skin cells, sweat and other environmental dirt, your face start developing blackheads, whiteheads and other forms of acne.

There are several benefits to pore extraction, most notably unclogging your pores which can lead to healthier-looking skin. Keeping your pores clean and clear can also help to prevent future acne breakouts as well as to keep your pores from looking larger than they are.

Extractions Vs Technology

Despite current advancement in cosmetic equipment and product technology, Porcelain has no intentions to do away with the traditional extraction method. According to our experience, it is proven that extraction is by far the most effective, albeit, tedious way of deep cleansing.

Without thorough extraction, the impurities in the pores will prevent any precious nutrients from serums/ampoules to be effectively penetrated into the skin. With clogged pores, the skin will look and feel rough, uneven and dull.

Extraction, The Key To Porcelain Skin

Director Therapist, Jenny Teng, who has had more than 17 years of experience under her belt as an aesthetician, explains, “Throughout my career, there is one core finding in my approach to effective skincare treatment, and that will be thorough deep cleansing of the skin using specific extraction techniques for different skin problems. It has been my mantra, and Porcelain’s mantra. With proper deep cleansing, nutrients from the products we use can penetrate much easily into the dermis and that is what makes Porcelain facials different.”

At Porcelain, nobody wears foundation; clients and staffs. No one has to cover up any flaws or imperfections. They advocate beauty from within and help clients achieve that with their solutions.

We are a premium skin care solution provider with an unpretentious and intimate touch one finds in a traditional facial salon. Porcelain is designed such that clients feel at home on our premise; they know they can trust our professionalism and our sincerity”, Pauline Ng (Managing Director) added.

When it comes to skincare, I love anything that involves hitting my kitchen and whipping up a beautifying DIY recipe. And with fall coming to a close, I’m trying to find any and every excuse to consume pumpkin. Sure, pumpkin lattes and pumpkin pies are lovely treats, but why not beautify from the outside in with pumpkin too!

DIY Pumpkin Cellulite Scrub

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 4 tablespoons caffeinated coffee grounds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Mix pumpkin, coffee grounds and coconut oil until blended. Standing in a bathtub to reduce mess, apply the mixture from hip to ankle, in circular motions. Leave on for 5 to 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

The Vitamin A in the pumpkin helps promote cell turnover, and both the caffeine and the granular grounds in the coffee help increase blood flow to reduce the appearance of cellulite while the coconut oil moisturizes. Pumpkin pulp, seeds and seed oil are often used in many beauty products since pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A and Matrix Metalloproteinase, stimulate cell turnover and boost collagen and elastin production!
