Deep Pore Cleansing Facial

Categories: Acne / Dullness/Rough Skin/Scars / Pores

A Deep Pore Cleansing Facial at Tribeca Skin Center achieves what creams and pills sometimes cannot: a physical removal of debris and clogging from pores. “Comedos,” also known as blackheads and whiteheads, are gently extracted. It’s a relaxing, therapeutic way to get done what you’re trying to do in the mirror at home.

“I’m 55 and have been going to Rowena for about 15 years. Although Rowena has some high profile clients, and the charge for her facial isn’t small, I’m a normal person employed in the public service who doesn’t even wear make up or buy new clothes regularly. But my skin matters to me. And Rowena gets that. So I get a wonderful, thorough, deep pore, facial cleaning from Rowena about 6 times a year. She’s gentle and funny, and supremely kind.” – Heidi S., from Google Reviews

What is a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial?

The facial treatment starts with steam and thorough massage to soften the skin, then gentle manual extraction, followed by medical grade holistic toning to close pores. To finish, a mask freshly made on-site tightens skin and seals in the treatment.

Do I need a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial?

If you are prone towards blackheads and clogged pores, and you find yourself manually extracting them at home, you are better off getting it done professionally. Extracting blackheads at home can lead to infection and scarring. If you and your dermatologist are working on acne with oral medications and topicals, a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial at TSC can complement that regimen.

Who performs the Facial?

Rowena Woo has been performing facials under the supervision of Dr. Sherwin Parikh since Tribeca Skin Center opened in 2001. Her facials were recently cited in New York Press as one of the reasons Dr. Parikh was voted New York City’s Best Dermatologist. Rowena was also featured in the New York Times Style section as an expert on facials.

What is unique about a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial at Tribeca Skin Center?

Is it good for any type of skin?

How long is the treatment?
