What are blackheads?

Blackheads are pores that have been clogged with oil or dirt. They are not naturally black, they oxidise the longer they are exposed to the air causing them to appear black. They are classified as a mild form of acne, however all skin types are susceptible to them.

What can cause blackheads:

  • Oil production – Every skin type has some oil production, especially on the T-Zone area, oil clogged in the pores is the main cause of blackheads
  • Pollution – Dirt can clog pores, especially if you live in a city
  • Make up – Wearing thick make up clogs pores and doesn’t let the skin breath
  • Not using the right products – Using high street moisturiser and not regularly cleaning or exfoliating the skin will cause pores to clog

What can you do to remove blackheads:

The only treatment we have ever found that really removes blackheads is HydraFacial. Due to its multi-step process, it effectively softens the pores so the blackheads have nowhere else to go and are purged out. DON’T try to extract them at home. If the pores are not properly softened, you can cause damage to the skin which may result in scarring.

You can reduce them by using oil control and exfoliators, however it is almost impossible to stop them coming completely, so we recommend monthly HydraFacial’s to keep them at bay.

With over 18 years combined experience in the Aesthetic industry, we have treated clients of all ages and have equipped ourselves with the right tools to manage congestion, while considering budget and lifestyle. 

All of our treatments are results driven and clinically proven to make sure you get the clear skin you deserve.

Blackheads FAQ

We recommend HydraFacial as it effectively softens the pores so they are ready to be extracted. An Express or Skin Health for Life HydraFacial is recommended monthly to deep clean the skin and improve overall skin health. 

Combining treatments and cosmeceutical skincare will give you the best possible results and reduce them coming back.

Using oil control products including salicylic acid will clean the pores from the inside out. Exfoliators, glycolic acid and vitamin A will help to tighten pores up and improve skin texture. Always choose cosmeceutical skincare found in clinics for the most active ingredients.
