Blackhead Removal Treatment
Blackhead removal is an important treatment for many people. Our blackhead extraction or acne extraction facials target non-inflammatory comedones. Blackheads (open comedones) and whiteheads (closed comedones) are both a form of acne. Treatment with extractions is necessary to help settle the congestion and complexion woes.
Blackheads are formed when the oil gland becomes plugged with skin cells allowing oil to accumulate. The black appearance is because of exposure to air. Blackhead most often appears on the face, especially nose, chin and cheeks, but can also occur on the chest, back, arms, neck, in fact anywhere on the body. Blackheads and whiteheads can develop in anyone. However, there is a genetic risk if you have oily skin or inherited acne.
Blackhead removal through acne extraction facials forms a standard part of our therapist’s work.
