How To Treat Blackheads

Treating blackhead with conventional treatments of pore strips, scrubs and facials will not work, except to temporarily extract the contents. Blackheads are caused from a build up of sebum (oil) in the skin pores and blockage of the pore with exfoliated dead skin cells. Being open to air, the sebum and clogged material oxidise and turns dark. Hence the term blackhead.

Salicylic Acid Exfoliates The Pore

BHA (beta hydroxy acid) or Salicylic Acid is oil soluble so it will penetrate the oil in the oil gland and exfoliate the contents and pore lining.

Salicylic acid products needs to be concentration of 1-2% in ph approximately 3.

We sell a very good Salicylic acid gel: Cost $42 for 118ml. This can be applied once or twice daily and progressively exfoliate the surface and skin pore. It is safe to use long term as part of skin routine.

The layer of skin that is removed in very fine and consists of dead skin cells that have been adding to pore obstruction and acne, so the skin is not damaged in the process

A study on ‘The Use Of Microdermabrasion For Acne’ by the Ohio Medical Centre concluded that 96% percent of patients were pleased with their Microdermabrasion results and would recommend it to others. According to this study: “medical microdermabrasion has ‘satisfactory to excellent results’ on acne; microdermabrasion can be ‘effectively used’ to fight mild forms of acne…”
